It start­ed well enough, as I went to the beach in the com­pa­ny of my beau­ti­ful grand­daugh­ter, who made me do any­thing she want­ed; and be­fore that, I had looked at In­dia strug­gle against Afghanistan.

Then I saw the West In­dies grab the ear­ly ini­tia­tive against the Ki­wis in a must-win en­counter for the Caribbean side.

WI legends slam fast bowlers' poor tactics

De­spite tal­ly­ing 321 runs, their high­est to­tal so far in the com­pe­ti­tion, the West In­dies were beat­en all over the ground by Bangladesh all-rounder Shak­ib Al Hasan, who hit an un­beat­en 124 to lead his team to a win with al­most 10 overs to spare.
