West Indies fighting hard

I'm amazed at the determination of the West Indies to go down fighting in this Test Match. Yes, England have dropped catches and not helped themselves, but the fight that West Indies have shown has been a delight to see given the capitulation at Headingley. No-one could have predicted at the start of their innings that they would have reached lunch on the final day requiring just 76 runs with 3 wickets in hand. An exciting game was much needed in this series, but as an England supporter I can only hope that England still come through to win.

It's going to be a time-consuming task updating the "real" averages and "wrong" decisions pages after this Test Match - rumour has it there have been a few bad decisions and there have certainly been some dropped catches - it will be interesting to see how the various individual's real averages change.
