In front of a very strong England team and it's batsmen, not just West Indies, any team is hardly finding an answer. Another Wright and rest special has almost killed the chase. This is the third consecutive game that this had happened.

Congrats to my teacher Richard and his team! It will be very tough to beat England both in Stumped CWC 2019 and in ICC CWC 2019.

West Indies will look forward to the other upcoming clashes with a renewed strategy. Good batting by our lads, but England's batting is simply the best of all Stumped teams, which is very tough to eclipse. Looking forward for our next one.

Warm Regards,
Stellar Ram.

Our lads did well for a bonus point at least. Getting the same number of English wickets (7) and dragging the game till 47th over are late positives.

It was an exciting game, especially in the closing stages. Good job by our batsmen, great show by our fielders, except for two important dropped chances which had hurt our chances of winning, and 'a lot to be pondered' kind of bowling effort.

Hopefully, we correct our mistakes and come back stronger in 3 days time in our next outing against Bangladesh.

Congrats to England once again!

Warm Regards,
Stellar Ram.

Cheers for the game guys.

Run outs tried to take us down but we held on for the win. Wright is on to 370 runs in 4 games. Crazy

Sri Lanka vs Australia from an Australian perspective

Sri Lankan Innings

Wesselius winning the toss and opting to bat Australia out of the game with a low wear pitch seemed like a poor decision at first with Allrounder Smee getting 2 early wickets to put Sri Lanka in trouble early. But a strong partnership lead by Wicket Keeper de Silva that brought Sri lanka back into the game with 300+ looking very likely until Traynor bowled Derinyanagala after dropping him the over before and the middle order struggled to hold it together with Smee coming back for a late spell and doing damage again. Some resistance by the tail meant a score that was competitive was still made but well short of what Sri Lanka looked like getting. Smee the pick of the bowlers (after having a quite season so far with bat and ball) with support from Melville and Traynor.


Australian Innings


Set 287 for victory Australia would need to do it without in form batsman Thorndyke and Bowden. A cautious but effective start from Ward and AUstin got Australia off to a start with Austin looking like he may play himself back into form in this innings with the top order once again not firing and Australia were in trouble with Laker and Vincent who have both been match winners are the crease, once again the reliance on this middle order is an issue. But fortunately, this has been one of Australias strongest middle orders to date with a fine unbeaten century from Laker with nice support from Vincent again to guide Australia almost home with Glenister and Hartrup assisting to get the final runs. With 4 games in a row with only 3 days apart and coming away 3 wins from 4 games we're pretty happy with more rest time between games for the rest of the world cup.

Looking forward to coming up against Bangladesh soon.

India and Pakistan tonight. India might be the favourites but Pakistan had a really strong warm up and I know Sufy knows the player well so I am expecting an upset tonight. We'll see though.

I get a bit tense watching Australia play so it's nice to watch a game and not be so invested in the result.

Good luck to both

Congrats to the Indian Stumped NAT team for their fantastic victory against our arch rivals Pakistan. We've easily chased 205 and did not fret or sweat. Good bowling backed up with purposeful batting.

Hoping for the same result to repeat, albeit defending 336 in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as well, to make it a doubly special day for us, the Indian supporters.

Warm Regards,
Stellar Ram.

India crush Pakistan by 89 runs via DLS method in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, riding on the back of 'Hitman' Rohit's Big Daddy century, Virat's classy innings and some collective effort in the bowling lead by Kuldeep Yadav and Vijay Shankar.

That's 7-0 and the unbeaten record is still intact. Happy for both the Stumped and ICC CWC wins as predicted. All power to India! :thumbup:

And happy Father's Day too! ;)

Warm Regards,
Stellar Ram.

Stellar performance from both the virtual and real Indian teams last night. Looking dangerous at this stage.

Definitely keeping an eye on Bangladesh as they are our next opposition. Probably games going their way at the moment but that could change if West Indies can get a good partnership going. Aldis is settled so he will be the key to a win here.
