An astonishing result in the West Indies vs. Sri Lanka series, as Lanka collapse but keep going, and the Windies start slow, collapse, then recover with some big hitting from Chanderpaul. Island Express points to the beginning of the West Indies innings:
Yesterday, the struggle against the Vaasdomination continued, with
Gayle prepared to leave almost everything outside off against Vaas, and
continue his buccaneering ways against whoever was bowling at the other
end. Vaas swung the ball, well into the second powerplay, and Gayle
continued to wait, gleefully accepting his luck on the way. Amarasinghe
got some stick and Gayle got himself a fifty in what was in the final
analysis, a captain's knock.
Samir Chopra says it's the first time ever that a six was needed and delivered off the last ball:
Sorry, Pakistan fans, the Miandad six doesn't count. Four were needed
then. And neither does the Mujtaba six. Seven were needed then.
The Atheist notes that Fifty50 might have some life left in it yet.
