Funny, but if it was all 'crap', you'd think that the Lions would be dominating the tournament, and beating everybody, since they have all of England's second-string players packed into one side, while the West Indies have their second-stringers spread out among seven teams. But so far, the LIons have only managed to beat cellar dwellers Leewards, drawing their games with Barbados and Trinidad. And this was against a weakened Trinidad which has been shorn of their best players - Dwayne Bravo, Darren Bravo, Adrian Barath, Ravi Rampaul and Kieron Pollard.

They share the lead with defending champs Jamaica and the Combined Campuses and Colleges, so halfway thru the tournament, there are no runaway leaders....

It's hardly Englands second string bowling line up though is it. With none of Anderson, Broad, Shahzad, Finn, Onions, Woakes, Bresnan, Tremlett or Davies playing, it is very much our 4th string.

It was a joke. I hardly think he reads this and if he does, he's still a professional cricketer and I'm not so I doubt he'd care...

80-1 at lunch, Kieswetter out. Presumably with Kieswetter moving up to open, Bairstow has come in lower down.

174-4. Taylor out for 22, after being dropped on 2. The opener Adams still at the crease.

Edit: Lions have moved onto 260-4. Adams 115 not out. Bad light has stopped play with half a dozen overs left in the day.

Woakes has taken a couple & the score is 150/5. Think they've been off for rain.

CCC 309-9. Looks like another bore draw is on the cards there.

Still a damn sight better than the bowling attacks of the seven Caribbean territories....

ENGAvCCC: BRATHWAITE continues to excite.He lofts Briggs into pavilion for 6 then drives Harris straight for 4. CCC 319-9. ENGAvCCC: ALL OUT Kantasingh ct off bat and pad; CCC all out 328 in 125 overs. Brathwaite left 81 not out(166 balls, 194 mins,8 fours,2 sixes).

JAvLI: LUNCH: Leewards are 240/6..Jeffers 118*, Taylor 0*. Bernard 13-3-39-3 and Lambert 21-7-38-2. Jamaica enjoying the better of play.

BDvGY: LUNCH: BD are 178/7 Dowrich 57* Layne 20*. need 2 more runs to avoid followon when play resumes.

WINvTT:LUNCH! Windwards are 229/8 after resuming the day's play on 149/2. Fletcher 101, Cottoy 1. The Windwards lead by 9 runs.

Sure, blame the wickets when you can't bowl sides out. Doesn't seem to trouble the other sides when they push for wins on the same wickets....

Fair point, we did blame the wickets in 2009 if memory served but only one of them was a truly flat, flat, flat guaranteed draw track (Barbados).

Lions 165-0 off 38 overs. Run a ball hundred from Kieswetter. Not sure how many overs are left in the day.

Well said, Pops....

In this round that was just completed, there were two wins. You get a blinkered view of the tournament when you only look at the Lions results in this competition.

Jamaica made 13/0 in their second innings to beat the Leewards. Marlon Samuels hammered 167 for Jamaica, and made Leewards follow-on with good bowling performances by Lambert, Bernard and Brown. Jamaica 12 points, Leewards 0.

Trinidad beat the Windwards by 51 runs. Good knocks by the Ganga brothers helped Trinidad to overcome a first innings deficit, and a first innings century by Fletcher, to secure victory. Despite Fletcher's 67 and a knock of 33 by James in the second innings, none of the other Windwards batsmen really came to the party, as they were dismissed for 172. Seamer Rayad Emrit took 4-40, young Cariah took three wickets, and Jaggernauth two.

In contrast, the Lions bowling once again failed to bowl out a side in their second innings, as the CCC comfortably secured a draw in their match, reaching 204-7, with Brathwaite and McClean not out on 11 each. But the draw had already been secured by a 99-partnership between Jamaicans Bonner (72) and Thomas (22). Woakes, Harris and Chambers took two wickets each....

Barbados reached 87-4 at stumps, as their match against Guyana also ended in a draw, Stoute on 24 and Chase on 18. Bess, Permaul, Fudadin and Johnson took one wicket each.


And by the way, Woakes is playing! Remember that due to the World Cup, the Caribbean territories are without the services of bowlers such as Roach, Rampaul, Benn, Miller, Russell, Dwayne Bravo, and now Bishoo. So, that seven matches your seven, beefy.
