Our poor luck in the field continues.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

It’s not luck if one of the fielders drops a howler!

If England can keep this within 50 or so then I think we'll win.

Aside from us fielding like turds, the Windies have done well to avoid wickets going in a flurry by buckling down and batting solidly. Not sure our batsmen are capable of hitting 25 off 100 odd balls.

Windies batted very well, that last session is what test cricket is all about and will probably clinch the series for them.

350 and we've got a decent chance of winning. But the chances of getting that many is slim, Denly looks shot already (not an autocorrect).

Not sure what's worse, England's batting or Balla's contempt for the GR mockers.

Definitely England’s batting.

Joke of a team. Dock every single one of the batsmen 100% of their match fee.

Just strawberry float off, ECB. Of all the players that deserved to be dropped, they've gone for one that didn't.

I thought he was injured. Nope. Really quite annoyed with that.

Not a great position to be in when you're getting dropped because other people aren't doing their job properly.

West Indies win the toss again. What goes around and all that. Blackwash incoming.

Jennings is not a test level batsman. Roy or Hayles would be a significantly better option.
