Bring on Swann!

England are missing a huge trick by not bringing on Swann right away after the fall of Gayle's wicket. Duh.

Actually, what England really need right now is Michael Clarke and the Indian tail. Four overs left.

Yaay! And a wonderful series win for the Windies! Now, how many times has Edwards done this? That's some record, I guess! He bowled well too, without luck.

Also, Taylor's delivery to Pietersen in the first test will remain in memory for a long time.

Ho-hum. Edwards foils the bowlers again. Just as predicted.

The delivery I will remember the most is the one that Powell bowled to Strauss after he had reached 140-plus. Mind-boggling because of how inept Powell was with almost every other ball in the series and how it brought Strauss, who was batting like a dream, to his hands and knees. Literally.

Samir, how can you bring up Sydney even in jest? There are some wounds that simply do not heal.

Satish: Edwards joins the ranks of Jason Gillespie as an excellent blocker. It'll be a long time before he scores a double-ton even if only against Bangladesh. And yes, that Taylor delivery is one for the highlight reels.

JQ: You're right - add the Powell delivery to the highlight film!

Tim: Sorry about that :)
