Now Playing: Kahin aag lage (Taal)
Well, yesterday was the first test WI vs SA. Chanderpaul selected to bat first after winning the toss (its his home ground so he should know best!). Boy, was I worried especially as since we were not playing with our full team (Gayle, Lara and Sarwan are not playing because of conflicts of sponsors i.e. Digicel and Cable and Wireless). We have a number of persons I've never heard of on the squad or have a limited test career. Anyway, we did surprisingly well yesterday, Chanderpaul who was captaining the side (debut) made a century yesterday, and Hinds have 182 at the moment, but that was a long battle. We had lost 2 wickets in the same over when we were at 24 (Devon Smith and Ganga) - that got me worried - thought we were gonnas after that ... but then one of the debut guy, Pagon came on and put in a solid 35, so that built some confidence in the camp. Besides, we have batted a whole day (we survived!) and we now stand at 347/3 ... I thought we might not have lasted a whole day much less make 300 .. but we did it ... but the announcers are hoping that we make a score of 500 ... although that will be great ... anything can be expected from the West Indies!
Anyway, waiting to see what this day's play holds!
