West Indies took 14.4 overs to reach their target, one which England crawled to in 41.3 painful overs. The man of the moment, of course, is Chris Gayle whose extraordinary 80 from 43 balls completely devastated England. The combination of audacious belief and sheer talent makes him an irrisistable batsmen when chasing such paltry, weedy little totals. So, West Indies are 2-1 up and England have everything to do if they're to claw back anything, least of all the respect of their splenetic fans who are increasingly fed up of such limp performances. But what fun it was. Do join us on Sunday for the fourth match but, for now, it's goodnight.
