Geez that was poor by Haddin, should have finished with a not out. Pretty much sums up this innings though, a basic training session with both sides going through the motions.

Lol Gayle CBA anymore, 5 wides it and ends that match.

The only team that would have lost chasing 105 is the Windies anyway.

Steven Smith official awarded MOTM. Great to see the youngster getting the award so early in his career, should do his confidence the world of good.

Should have played Roach!!!

Not really to be fair. The windies where always going to recall Miller on that slow surface to try & restrict AUS, via targeting AUS little weakness againts spin. Since the windies tactic to win was always likely to evolve around batting first (preferably) - setting a challenging score - then backing the spinner to tie down AUS.

The senior pacer in Taylor was always going to get the nod over Roach.

I was just making that comment because of the bounce Gayle got when he bowled that half tracker.
