WI lose fight


Share post:

THE WEST?INDIES batsmen did not go down tamely and a festive Windsor Park crowd loved them for it.
But Australia still completed a 2-0 win in the Digicel Test cricket series yesterday.
Australian captain Michael Clarke completed his second five-wicket haul in Tests (23-1-86-5) to see his side to a 75-run win. But not before his counterpart Darren Sammy and last man Shane Shillingford provided spirited resistance.
In a boundary-filled last-wicket partnership of 49 at better than a run a minute, they gave life to a dying cause and provided a spectacle worth paying EC$10 (BDS$7.40) to watch.
Sammy told the media afterwards: “We were thinking that (we could win) all the time, all the time. I was speaking to him (Shillingford) in creole and we just kept telling each other, ‘we gonna do it as long as we bat’. He was saying to me if I faced 90 balls, we gonna win, and stuff like that.”
