For the 3rd time in this series, when the time came for SL to step on throat and take control of the game, we didn't! And we keep doing this time and again. I presume this is what differentiates the good team - give then an inch and they take control. We were simply brilliant to have them 50/5 - what about some of those slip catches but then went to sleep to let them in.

This is a tough wicket I feel and 200 could be a decent score It's already up and down and it's day one so we'll know how good the wicket is when we bat but I was surprised Windies batted first on that wicket but then again they don't need to win the game.

Our lads will surely struggle on this track when they bat.
