Lord Superior, the epitome of Caribbean flair and calypso rythm- FOR CRICKET
In the cricketing world of Australia and the dominant nations the Triangular ODI series in Zimbabwe between Zimbabwe, West indies and Sri Lanka passed without notice. Such partialities in the world are par for the course. But the course of that series was hardly, well, par – hardly sedate. Apart from rain interference and no result matches, there were three tight matches – very tight in fact because the result was not known till the last over.
The West Indians sustained their recent reputation for unpredictability. In recent years they have revealed a capacity to win T20 matches from nowhere with remarkable batting in the death overs. But, in Zimbabwe, they managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the 6th Match after previously ending up tying a game which had seemed in their bag – again with Zimbabwe.
