WI, surely they must be one of the favorites to take the World Cup this year, on current form and luck, they should make the final or at least a semi final. Playing really great cricket ATM

To me the Windies are like the French rugby team. If the right team rocks up on the day, they can destroy anyone. But they can be equally diabolical the following match. I still think on balance England and India should rightly consider themselves favourites. They're just so balanced. But yeah, if they play to their potential, they can definitely challenge for the title.

Very true, it will be very interesting next year to have the same conversation, considering Chris Gayle is retiring after this years World Cup. WI = CG

Madness. If he is in this form come the CWC, opposition bowling attacks better beware. He makes bowlers and pitches alike look decidedly ordinary

Think a shared series is a fair reflection of the series as a whole. Both teams gave as good as they got. Doubt either captain will be too disappointed.

In all honesty, WI and Chris Gayle have had a excellent run this series with coin toss, luck and form, if it continues during and beyond the World Cup, then I will surprised.

For today’s match, well played WI.

Well If Gayle still has this form at 39, I cant see whats AB's problem & he should un-retire himself, he still has 4 years left at least :p
