          Cricket Ireland forced to tighten up it's spending. Next years Tests downgraded.

            Michael Holding was commentating on the First Test today and he told about following Tiger Woods around a Golf Course during some Tournament.

            "and then I found out who owns the Golf Club and I haven't been back."

              Surprised at the WI yesterday, given themselves a chance. If they can get 350, could win this.

                OK, you yob and philistinophobes out there the WI have a lead of about 100. Everything depends on how England manage eating up that lead. If they get to 100 with the loss of 2/3 wickets or less, then they should win, I don't trust the WI to chase down much more than140. If they are 100 for 5 or 6 (or worse), it there for the WI to win. I'm a gambler, I'd be ready to put Piquet's shirt on a WI win. Their bowlers might do it for them.

                  England looked to be cruising until the new ball was taken- then a collapse like to old days- if they can snaffle another 30 or so tomorrow it’s will be a very interesting game- could still be/ even with 170 to get....

                    The WI have dropped quite a few catches in the highlights I've seen and started watching it as the collapse unfolded late yesterday. Like a good Irishman, always enjoy an English fiasco. As you say, much depends on how much England can add on. I think they'll go cheaply, runs are hard to get on this wicket and you have these huge athletic fast WI bowlers whipping the ball down like a mini cannon ball. They should be able to blast the last 2 wickets out albeit Archer and Wood can hit the ball. It is on a knife edge now.

                      9 for 303. Pedigree rabbit Jimmy Anderson at the crease. Should be exciting day.

                        WI need 200 to win. Got off to a very rocky start at about 30 for 3, with 1 guy off hurt also, though he's ok and will bat. But this is a new ball pitch, which means it is responsive to the hard new ball, but becomes easier as the ball softens. The WI just need one very good partnership and they can nick this
