THEY CAN BE TRULY called the “Win-dies”.

The Caribbean’s cricket team came up big yesterday, quieting 8 000 flag-waving English fans en route to a series-tying five-wicket victory at Kensington Oval.

Jermaine Blackwood and Darren Bravo were the heroes of the day, combining for a match-winning 100-run stand that saw the West Indies to victory before adoring home fans.

After Bravo departed with the light fading, Blackwood struck the final nail in the English coffin as the Windies reached their target of 192 without having to seek an additional half-hour of play.

Here, these fans in the Greenidge & Haynes celebrating after the victory was secured. (BA)
