West Indies always seem to raise their game against us for whatever reason. Holder's bagged 2 match winning hundreds against us now in the last two tours.
It's very disappointing, I don't personally buy the argument put forward by some pundits that this West Indies side is any better than what they've had for the last decade or so. That said, Holder himself is a fantastic captain and all round decent chap.
We're just a shambles. Joe Denly, 200 first class matches and he's playing that shot?
England have bowled some good stuff and the Windies are riding their luck.
We are in big trouble if we concede a three figure first innings lead. I don't have much optimism that our batsmen will cope with the Windee quicks any better second time round than they did first up. Another big defeat is looming unless we pick up wickets quickly.
