Roach and Best celebrate victory

Roach and Best celebrate victory over India

West Indies 230 for 9 (Charles 97, Bravo 55, Yadav 3-43) beat India 229 for 7 (Rohit 60, Raina 44, Sammy 2-41, Roach 2-41) by 1 wicket
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

The pursuit of the money shot nearly cost West Indies what should have been an easy win, and it took a 10-run stand for the last wicket in front of a nervous full house to end India’s nine-match winning streak in international cricket.

With balls remaining in the chase of 230 out of equation, Kemar Roach and Tino Best, who had taken two wickets each previously, showed the more accomplished batsmen how to finish the chase off – they added 10 in 4.2 overs and still had 14 balls to spare – but it can also be argued that it was the free-flowing approach that put West Indies in comfortable positions in the first place in a chase that oscillated between the ridiculously easy and plain ridiculous.

Cricket – Pollard helps West Indies take series lead

West Indies v Australia, 4th ODI, Gros Islet. St. Lucia. West Indies.

West Indies 294 for 7 (Pollard 102, Barath 41) beat Australia 252 all out (Lee 59, Hussey 57) by 42 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Kieron Pollard at his most brutal left Australia with an insurmountable challenge at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia as West Indies took a 2-1 lead with one to play in an ODI series that is rivalling their wildest dreams. Pollard produced a memorable display of power hitting, 102 slugged from 70 balls to vanquish an Australian side that West Indies had come to regard as virtually unbeatable.

After a demoralising run against Australia of 13 defeats in 14 ODIs (the other being a no-result), West Indies now have two wins and a tie from their last three games. No side had ever scored more on this ground batting second than West Indies’ 284 for 5 to beat England in 2004 and Australia had little chance to buck the trend once they had lost half their side for 112.    [more ]
