I am quite happy with the way our bowlers put in the efforts after Ambrose's injury. Damn, he would have been a handful in the final but luckily we have the best replacement for him the big Jamaican - Michael Holding and this time I am not holding back against the Aussies. Last time we were just about half the strength but in the final we will go with our best lineup:

:bat: Desmond Haynes
:bat: George Headley
:bat: Brian Lara
:bat: Sir Everton Weekes
:wkb: Clyde Walcott :wk:
:ar: Garry Sobers :bwl:
:ar: Frank Worrell :bwl:
:ar: Malcolm Marshall :bwl: (1)
:ar: Andy Roberts :bwl:
:ar: Michael Holding :bwl: (2)
:ar: Joel Garner :bwl:

lol our #11 has a FC hundred to his name and our #6 bowler has 13 fivefors to his name against the quality of the WI players of that time.

Maco, Andy, Holding and Garner, reliving the golden era!!

Lara was welcomed to the crease in this manner

Mcgrath was all over Lara

Because of the pressure built by Mcgrath, Lara was clean bowled in the next over by Lillee

West Indies have lost their three early wickets.

So it is Walcott again standing up for us. Hopefully we will bat good in second innings. We have got the bowling and they got to bat last. This is on.

West Indies have a healthy lead of 102 runs. Can they build upon it or Australia would make a comeback.
Stay tuned for the Second inngs.

I told you we have got a much better lineup. TBH, with the way things have progressed, the pitch dished out to us seems more like Sabina Park of the '80s or the one at WACA at its best. Our players, both batsmen and bowlers should love it because our cricketers of the time were quite used to play one such wickets. If we do not follow suit of Australia and score what we did in the first innings, the match should easily be in our bag.

It's gonna take something monumental to turn this around now. We've got Bradman of course, but it's still quite doubtful. Hoping we go down with a fight in typical Aussie style.

Australia need 457 runs to win and this is not going to be an easy task. Can Australia rewrite History ?

Australia need 82 runs to win and West Indies need 5 wickets to win the match on day 5.
Its matter of nerves and pressure.

Can Australia rewrite History books by chasing a record total or West Indies bowlers going to add glory to their Cricketing History.
Stay Tuned for Day 5

There are tasks which are Herculean and then there is another level chasing 450+ in fourth innings against Windies attack of the prime.

Presentationwise I thought Lara's innings could have been presented. I never knew he crossed 100 run mark until I saw picture captioned 'Warne's takes an extraordinary to dismiss Lara for 186 runs'. May be a picture of Lara celebrating a hundred somewhere in between would have eased the flow you know.[DOUBLEPOST=1448693058][/DOUBLEPOST]Darn it! Aussies are such owerpowered in the sim. No way any side could have chased it against that attack but... I almost feel like reporting it to childishthings as a bug. :p

We really could have done without that needless run-out. With Bradman at the crease, chasing 82 on the final day would have been only too easy. Great innings though. Well played by Morris, Hayden, Chappell and Border too. We've still got Gilchrist, Miller, Lindwall and Warne coming in. It could still be anybody's game.

My money's still on the Windies. They're capable of taking those 5 wickets in 5 balls.
