Match Notes

  • That was not West Indian!

    You could use all of those familiar sayings to describe the events at Kensington Oval on the last day of the third Cable & Wireless Test: like cricket is a game of glorious uncertainties and it's a funny old game

  • Lara throws a party

    There was fight and a final, thrilling flourish from Brian Lara

  • To the victors, the kudos

    It was wonderful while it lasted, but it probably was too much too late, or too little too late, whichever way one wants to take it

  • Up to you, Lara

    South Africa are closing in on victory in the fourth Test that has been as good as theirs since the first hour of the third day at the Antigua Recreation Ground

  • Don't hold your breath expecting the West Indies to survive

    Nicky Boje, South Africa's left-arm orthodox spinner, who has been getting considerable turn from this four-day old pitch, probably holds the key to the final day
