Into the cauldron

I'd give a great deal to be at Kingston right now, soaking in the atmosphere as the Windies rattle the Aussie top-order. I've witnessed a small collapse at Kingston before, and the atmosphere when the Windies' quicks get on top is incredible, truly one of test match cricket's most intense sensations. The value of a wicket in test cricket is quite unlike that in any other form of the game; when quicks get on top, and the crowd can sense a vital transition of power in the making, tests can provide the most intense drama possible in cricket.
