I think the theory is to wear out the opposition bowlers, West Indies currently 273-5🏏

Perhaps they wanted a bit of batting practice.

Day 2: 18 wickets fall.
Day 3: 0 wickets fall, that is until England bat!

Ah well, the agony is over.

I'm sorry for anyone that bought a ticket for the 5th day.

When I lived in Joburg, I always always went Wanderers on day 2, definitely was the most action for ones money in Barbados.

The Oztralians must be looking forward to the Ashes series.

Roston Chase had a Test Match bowling average of 47, today took 8-60, better than Shane Warne’s best figures ~X(

Yep, a mere 381 runs was all it took to beat England.

There's a beautiful and unintended irony here however.....it was a spinner that did the damage. The irony is, that, when the Windies were at their peak, they had a Mr L.Gibbs in the team. Mr Gibbs was, as they say, at the top of his profession as a spinner and although it's hypothetical, we can only wonder how much more he would have achieved if contemporary bowling and training methods had been available to help him.

We now await the clarion calls for the nations saviour, Broady, to return to the side for his usual match saving centuries and astounding bowling returns......

Much as I admire Lance Gibbs, surely the Windies didn’t really hit their peak until the late 70’s and most of the 80’s and I can guarantee that Roston Chase would get nowhere near that team.

Fair comment. Mr Gibbs was prominent in the emergence of the Windies in the late 60's untl he retired in the mid 70's.....thereafter, as we know, pure unassailable class and magic prevailed.

Mr Chase, as you say, would not have been a participant in those teams.
