    Windies 74-5 in reply to 277, they’re going to have to work to get out of this one.

    Are teams having a battle on who can make Moen Ali look the best? How he gets so many wickets is beyond me

    Ali will be easily the worst bowler to take 200 test wickets.


    And some on here are reckoning Lillee, Marshall and Ambrose might struggle for wickets now adays lol.

    TBH, Didn't expect much from the WI this test

    First two tests probably drained some of their batsmen, they also probably celebrated long and hard with this unexpected series win. Plus no captain in Holder

    Changed his legal name to Moeen Marsh after seeing our selectors inability to drop either of the idiots with that surname.

    Genius move Moeen.

    FROM THE LINK ABOVE


    Shannon Gabriel, the West Indies fast bowler, has been charged with an ICC Code of Conduct breach after making an apparently homophobic remark in an exchange with the England captain, Joe Root, during the St Lucia Test.

    Stump mics caught an interaction on the third afternoon of the Test between Gabriel and two England batsmen, Root and Joe Denly, which ended with Root saying: "Don't use it as an insult. There's nothing wrong with being gay."

    In a tweet, the ICC confirmed that Gabriel had been charged with a breach of Article 2.13 of the Code of Conduct: "The charge, which was laid by match umpires, will now be dealt with by Match Referee Jeff Crowe. Until the proceedings have concluded, the ICC will not comment further."


    Article 2.13 applies to use of "language of a personal, insulting, obscene and/or offensive nature", with a range of charges covering different levels of seriousness.

    Thought Root's response was classy TBH... at the end of the day he could have laughed it off, ignored it, or as some would make a big scene... he just calmly said more or less exactly the right thing

    Pretty harsh on Gabriel. Shouldn't have even gotten a single game suspension based on what was said
