On the third day of the second "Test" at Sabina Park, the West Indies 'a' team crushed the England Lions by more than an innings to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Trailing by 277 runs on first innings, the Lions could only manage 260 all out in the second. Liam Livingstone hit 48 and Paul Coughlin 47, but they were once again no match for spinners Rahkeem Cornwall (4-88) and Jomel Warrican (4-69).

It was a good series win for the youngsters, but let's not get carried away. English batsmen are crap at playing spin. Our batsmen struggle just as much in seaming conditions in England.

Having already secured the series 2-0, the West Indians made 263 all out in the first innings of the final 'Test' at North Sound. Shamar Brooks made 63, and there were 33s from John Campbell and Rahkeem Cornwall. Jack Leach took 3-58 and Sakib Mahmood 3-50.

Cornwall and Warrican are the new Ram and Val.
:)
Spin twins Jomel Warrican (6-33) and Rahkeem Cornwall (3-46) spun the England Lions out for a mere 102 all out, Haseeb Hameed offering the only resistance with 48.

Yes, Googs, them getting excited, conveniently forgetting that another of our teams are playing in a prelim for the World Cup for the first time ever....

The West Indians secured a 3-0 clean sweep when they crushed the England Lions by 212 runs at the Viv Richards stadium. Chasing an unlikely 408 for victory, the Lions meekly succumbed to 195 all out, Haseeb Hameed topscoring once again with 26. They were once again mesmerised by the left-arm spin of Jomel Warrican, who took 5-55.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH lord this place is like Fox News when Obama won to rhatid!!!..why unnu so SAD? :lol: :lol: :lol: I understand why massa bitter, because we just BLACKWASH him country and him husband Killa just get burried, but POOgley? Why you mad? I thought you was a REAL CARIBBEAN man? :? OOPS, me almost forget that Warri and Jimbo's performances now means that BISHOO IS ON DI CHOPPING BLOCK!!!..no-wonder di man MISERABLE!!! :D .

Look duncies, let's put my affiliation with di board and PM to one side, can anyone argue that this isn't a great step In the right direction for our cricket? Let us remember that England have all the advantages. They have more money, better cricket schools, better cricket clubs, better training facilities, a first-class system hailed as one of the best and have the luxury of sending their A-team and youngsters to Asia to training in foreign conditions etc. And what has happened? We've absolutely taken them apart from start to finish.

IMO this should be a watershed moment for our cricket like that famous "no mas" game against India at bina when we used four pacers. Two spinners, two quicks and one allrounder who can bowl pace and bat at six should be the way forward for us AT HOME. Bangladesh have figured it out and this has given me confirmation that it can work for us too. The only difference is we have much better pacers than Bang, SL etc.

I believe Keemo Paul could be our own Stokes in years to come, so it was great to see him get a few wickets on his debut. Now he needs to spend time in the nets working more on his batting. He is the type of all-rounder I'm hoping can come through along with Sharmer Springer. Reifer did well too tbh.

In-terms of the batting. Reifer, Hamilton and Dowrich all did Ok. Was disappointed in Powell and Campbell. That opening spot will remain an issue until someone steps up and grabs it.

In closing the key to a brighter future is to learn how to win at home first. For too long we've had no identity. We keep looking to the past where our tracks were fast and we had incredible pacers. But when we think about it how many brilliant pacers have we produced of late? Roach on his day has been top class, but apart from him who else? Fidel? I have faith in Joseph but right now he's injured. The fact is our tracks our like the Sub-Continent now, so we need to stop fighting against it and make sure we produce better spinners to take advantage of our conditions. This is how we will be able to beat the likes of England, NZ, Aus and SA at home, and play India, Pak, SL and BD at their own game. It's actually the India philosophy. They win all their games at home, get the odd away win In SL, WI, BD etc, and lose In England, SA, Aus and NZ, but although they'd like to win on the road, this strategy gets them to number one in the rankings. I think this is the way to go right now and then we can evolve and seek to win on the faster tracks.
