Back to Cricket

Its back to Cricket as things return to normal as both Teams have now put behind them the recent fiasco at the Sir Vivian Cricket Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.

The 3rd Test match between the West Indies and England is on in earnest at the Antigua recreation Ground, as the game proceeded into its 3rd day. The latest position of the Game at the time of preparing this release is that England has positioned themselves into a favouring position at 458for 6.

The pitch is at the moment unresponsive to spin and fast bowlers. As a result, the bowlers have to rely heavily on raw pace and length and line to limit and frustrate scoring opportunities for the English Batsmen.

An estimate of about 3000 England supporters are in attendance, in comparison to a small contingent of local supporters. The English are really soaking up the fine Caribbean weather of 32 Degree Celsius. In addition to some fine drinks, food and music all made in the Caribbean.

Life in the Caribbean, where else is better to be at this time?
