2-0 with games finishing on 3rd day.

Our group which has been going to the Adelaide Test for over 20 years have opted to miss Windies Test as it will be so one sided as was last years.

Actually quite good to see a no-frills West Indies give the Aussies a decent match (so far). :thumbup:

Two great finishes in the last 24 hours, and showing that test cricket is still the best form of the game.

PS - I bet GIAE is itching to post again on FN. ;-)

test cricket alive and well, not sure having Cam Smith in is the right choice either, i get Smith made runs in the 2nd dig but for mine I think he is better suited at 4 and bring in a specialist opener.

Kudos to the Windies and their bowling attack, fantastic to watch
