West Indies, South Africa and Australia Tri-Series

There are nine matches and a final in this tri-series, all the games should be competitive. The first game is in progress, South Africa were bowled out for 188 by the Windies.

Hell of a tough track, by the sounds of it. WI struggling on at 72/3 off 24.4.

I hadn't heard of this one. I am assuming it is a 50 over bash. In which case 72-3 after 25 overs chasing 188 seems good to me.

Well they got there in the end, with Pollard playing a blinder at 6, so it was, I suppose.

I find it a bit odd that Steyn is playing for Glamorgan. At least Morkel, Rabada, Hazelwood and Starc are out there. Once they are out of Guyana things will improve.

Am wondering who is better Zampa or Lyon, both starting out in ODIs. Probably Zampa will be the 20/20 bowler but could he be the main ODI spinner or will they start to go with two like England do.

11 ODIs 15 wickets at 33.53 econ 4.98 s/r 40.4
3 ODIs 6 wickets at 19.66 econ 4.62 /r 25.5

It's not that strange when you're comparing it to a list of bowlers who haven't had fitness issues as recently. The CSA had rested him. But they weren't too keen on him playing for Glamorgan instead but isn't that just T20?

These wickets would make Mo and Adil look like Bedi and Chandra, so I wouldn't get too carried away!

Steady on. Remember that according to the assessment of wise old bird Vic Marks, the main reason why Mo Ali bowled so dismally in the UAE last winter was because the pitches were favourable for spin bowling.

SA went one run better than they managed against the Windies, though this game has legs. Aus 25-3 with Finch lucky not to be run out twice.

The Aussie bowler who so many people on this forum like to rubbish had a good game, taking 5-50. Could not imagine what the comments on here would have been if the Windies had have won.
Probably similar to the ones aimed at the English football team who were beaten overnight by Iceland, a country with the same population as Leicester !

I'm afraid we're not really losing much sleep over the Aussies winning this side show tournament.

Either you are dreaming or I am but I can't remember one person rubbishing Hazelwood. He has fantastic figures in Tests and ODIs.

I can't see why the selectors pick Boland though. That is a mystery.

Maybe so but had they not won it would have been a different story, the ankle nippers would have been all over it, a-la -
