Windies’ early work keeps them on top

Futile attempt to conceal oversized chinIf there’s one cricketing nation that’s quite reliable, other than Australia, it’s South Africa – particularly at home. If there’s one cricketing nation which is quite unreliable, it’s currently the West Indies – particularly away from home.

So how did the Windies rack up 400 and then dispatch South Africa for under 200? Er, they played quite well. Sometimes it happens. They’re reverting to type a bit as we write, but they’re still in a strong position. At 146-8 they’re 350 ahead on a pitch where the scores have been progressively ensmallening, so they’re still okay.

Elsewhere India are letting everybody down, even the majority of Australian fans who are going to start going off cricket if something interesting doesn’t happen to their side soon.

There’ll probably be the odd update over the weekend, because we’re struggling to know what day it is at present. However, the big day’s Monday. We’ll be announcing the winner of our new, already highly-respected, annual award. So who will be granted the title Lord Megachief of Gold 2007? Meet us here on Monday to find out.

  1. Is it me? Did I win?

  2. Ensmallening. What a fantastic word.

  3. Graeme Smith’s done a fine job of using his oversized chin to distract you from his expanding gut, though.

    No one self destructs like the Windies. Except maybe the English. South Africa needs 273 with 6 wickets remaining. Not easy, but not impossible
