Review: Yesterday I was watching the Australia vs West Indies Match Thriller(3rd TEST MATCH of The Frank Worrell Trophy) Despite the fact that Scorecards and newspaper Scores will not tell you or give you any Clue to guess that it is a Thriller or a Close Shave it was a real thriller->Till Chanderpaul and Bravo were there one has to say that it was a Good Fightback put by the West Indies after the Aussies Posted a mammoth Total and set the Carribeans a Target of 475(475 has never been chased in the History of Test Cricket)..The West Indies started Positively with a Blitz from X.Marshall setting a Correct Platform for them.An Gayle with Occasional hits to the fence by his standing up tall and hitting through the Covers and Straight down the Ground but soon he was dismissed by Lee giving a easy catch to Lee of clarke..And later Chanderpaul and Marshall Marshalled the West Indies Innings and Casson came into the act and removed Marshall and then the extemporized Bravo came to the Crease and he straight away took Casson the Debut man to the Cleaners(not once or Twice he hit him 4 times) but Ricky’s Gamble with Bringing Casson to bowl the 83rd Over even though he conceded runs in the 81st Over PAID OFF..Bravo was Caught at Silly Point by Jacques of the bowling of Casson..After that it was a debacle Ramdin survived some stunning deliveries from Lee and J.Taylor gave him a Good Support..So the Fall of Chanderpaul(Actually the Decision created much of a Speculation in the Crowds Mind Because of the Height Factor)Signaled the West Indies Progression Back to the Pavilion..So Finally the result was Aussies Clinch the Series 2-0…So this was not the result I expected because the W.I were Playing well on the last day of the Match needing only 240 runs with 7 wkts in hand..And one more thing to be Witnessed in this Match is the Aussies were Butterfingers they dropped some 7-8 Catches with Mr.Katich Dropping 4 Catches and Symonds Missing a Run Out..It was a Funny Comment by Tony Cozier telling “HE Doesn’t follow the ball THE BALL FOLLOWS Mr.KATICH-PUT HIM IN DEEP FINE LEG GAYLE WILL PULL ONE BALL AND KATICH WILL DROP THAT– ha ha ha what a comment…”
