It was absolutely a peach of an innings. The two straight sixes at 14* and 20* were worthy of Gale. He looked good. Couple of ‘hoicks’ worthy of yours truly. Loved the gem. Meant nothing in the context of the game but it cheered all and asunder. Even the few scattered NZ supporters were on their feet cheering.
Thanks Shane. It was his highest score. Never scored a Test 50 prior to that.
Lets also NOT forget ‘Man of the Match’ Mark Craig hitting his very 1st ball in Test cricket for a very, clean 6. Wow. Talk about a dream. I am in awe.
Said it before, will say it again, even if my beloved West Indies lost, this was one cracker of a game with some beautiful innings and some inspired bowling. Thanks guys. Can’t wait for the 2nd Test.
