Yeah, good to see Munro back in the runs, 2 50's in 2 innings.

Always a pleasure to watch DM Bravo, such a talented batsman that the WI sadly need back.

Baz looked horrid for 10 balls, then started smashing 6's following DM Bravo's lead as they brought up 223.

Strong Kiwi influence in this game, with Rossco, Phillips, Munro and the former Black Cap Baz.

Narine has totally remodelled his action but can still get the ball turning sharply from leg to off (with a straight arm).

Didn't get a close up of if carrom ball, but wow it turned big.

Did you see Gayle's 114 while chasing 222? In CPL or so

Gayle opens. Dre Russ walked out 41/5 chasing 224. RRR close to 14 - and does it easy.

Brathwaite 40(13).

Treat to watch him after Dre Russ yesterday.

Yeah bats are bigger but they weigh what they always did.

Dre Russ and Carlos are built like pro-wrestlers.

This Ali Khan seems half decent, especially for an USA cricketer.

I don't think that is quite what he meant givemeahug. Besides, StarSportsHD is cricketing Asia only.

I think there's a lot of cricket fans in NZ who would go with Starsports over Sky. I know I would.

Starsports should enter in overseas market now because they will showing Asia cup in 31 days live,i do not think Maleshiyas Qualifiers
(for Asia cup) any one can see any part of earth involving Maleshiya,
Nepal,Singapor,hongkong,UAE and Oman.--- I can count on UAE or Nepal might go with original Asia cup teams--
India,pakistan,Srilanka,Bangladesh,AfgHanistan and 6th team from above (Qualifiers will be play from Aug 29 in Kulalampur)

This year India host Asia cup in UAE.

yeahhhhh. What you're oblivious to is that sports broadcasters owned by Fox like Star are in the business of telecasting someone else's product by region.The product like intl cricket isn't their own. They buy regional rights. Whenever Fox can expand beyond Aus, then USA and then Indian sub continent profitably - it does.

Star Sports rupees make the Murdoch family fair dinkum rich, cobber ;)

Or put more simply - Aussies own Fox which own Star sports.

Glen Phillips BLK cap star, seems to me Good player.


He's no star, he went hero to zero last season. He's young, some fans reckon he has great potential, some reckon he's just a slogger. Latham has the ODI job locked down for now. Watling is the test keeper, and Blundell his test reserve. So Glenn is battling for a t20 spot at best with Seifert and whoever else.

He does run very fast for a wicket keeper, though. Especially to fine leg, third man or "long stop".

Wow - so I missed Cornwall's innings. That irks me.

But DM Bravo - what a champion. Easily the classiest batsman in the WI - and really should be topping the world group chasing the Big 4 by now.

Such a very classy batsman, in any format. I wish he'd return to intl cricket.

Believe it or not - Munro is the best batsman in the CPL's history now, outshining Pollard and even Gayle.

62.28 this year at 148SR.

Easily the best this year.

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine ... tournament

Career 43.85 at 143.

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine ... ype=trophy

The CPL last year got Munro back into the NZ team as an opener after having been dropped. He had a rough time in IPL, and in ENgland Blast too.

But he seems to love it in the West Indies where many more high profile batsmen do far worse.
