Take this cricket, please

More uninspiring cricket from the Windies today; the pre-lunch session's lethargy was inexplicable, and I, for one, simply stopped watching at some point. This test match has turned into a crashing bore, and this series, with its dead pitches, non-existent crowds, rain, and now, strange captaincy decisions, has been a big turn-off. Is this what cricket in the West Indies needs? What a sight to see Wayne Daniel at the lunch break - a reminder of days when West Indian cricket was associated with stylish excitement and power. I'll be watching England and Ecuador do battle tomorrow; yes, the feed will still be on, for VVS is batting, and thats always a treat (even though, sadly, he decided to be more cautious than enterprising in his stint today).
