Comments on Previous Day
Brathwaite: It was a good achievement. I don’t think my captain ever takes my bowling seriously. I just try to stick to the basics.
Herath: We wanted to get as much runs as possible. The pitch has not much for batsmen, it has more help for the spinners. Anglie and Milinda did well.

It was a sequel to an earlier film, where the two made a trip back to 1955.
Some of what writer-director Robert Zemeckis prophesied has materialised (video chat is real, cars run on alternative fuel, thumbprints can open doors and pay bills, and while the Chicago Cubs may not be at long last baseball’s World Series champions, they are in the final playoffs). Others (flying cars and skateboards, and – West Indians will be amused to learn – the banning of lawyers!) will have to wait for Back to the Future III. Read the rest of this entry ?
