    I'm going to bet all my money on England just so that Murphy's law will make them lose/draw.

    Indeed.

    Squashy also said it was the season for whitewashes. If England win this test it will be the 5th whitewash England have been involved in over the last year, 6 if you include the India ODI's in England last year, which we won 3-0.

    Yeah that.

    These are these are the whitewashes involving England:

    India, Test Series, Won 4-0
    India, ODI Series, Won 3-0
    India, ODI Series, Lost 5-0
    Pakistan, Test Series, Lost 3-0
    Pakistan, ODI Series, Won 4-0

    I wonder what odds you could have got on some of them. I reckon us beating Pak 4-0 in the ODI's would have been very friendly odds.

    I highly doubt Gayle will play. I'm not sure you're aloud to bring players into your squad unless there are injuries, like in this case with Roach and Narine.

    Pity Roach is injured. WI have basically lost their best bowler to gain one who SHOULD be good but will be on debut. And England usually play spin ok in Eng.

    That's debatable... Rampaul has been the better bowler over the last year.

    True Rampaul was better, until he got Dengue fever and became the size of a hippopotamus. He's not better now. Roach has progressed, Rampaul, while still decent, has regressed.
