The 4th ODI is today in Brian Lara's home. BCL has been in pretty Tendulkaresque form recently but can he turn it around for what may be his last ODIs in front of his home crowd?

According to cricinfo the likely teams are...

India 1 Rahul Dravid (capt), 2 Virender Sehwag, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Mohammad Kaif, 6 Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), 7 Irfan Pathan, 8 Ajit Agarkar, 9 Ramesh Powar, 10 Harbhajan Singh, 11 Sreesanth

West Indies 1 Chris Gayle, 2 Sewnarine Chattergoon, 3 Ramnaresh Sarwan, 4 Brian Lara (capt), 5 Marlon Samuels, 6 Dwayne Smith, 7 Dwayne Bravo, 8 Carlton Baugh (wk), 9 Ian Bradshaw, 10 Fidel Edwards, 11 Corey Collymore

A win here for the West Indies will seal what has turned out to be a very hard fought and exciting series.

At the beginning of the series most people predicted it to be 4-1 or 5-0. It will be 4-1 BUT for the Windies.

We've had three games so far and all have been decided in the final over. Will we have another nail biter?

Hash
26th May 2006, 18:58
I'm hoping for a Brian Lara special. I mean something really special........if he gets 150 or something. Not another tight finish please- just a nice, easy and comfortable win for the Windies!

i hope chris gayle scores a century , and so does brian charles lara (century atleast) how about sending both gayle n lara as the openers ;) with sarwan to follow :D

I think this one will be another nailbiter, its going to be tense for the Indian fans, theirs a good chance Lara will treat his homecrowd big today, and I'v got a feeling that the Windies will win the series today, I hope India wins today.

There is a good chance we will win today, since its been our middle order that failed us last time around, and primarily because yuvi was absent and as a result raina played higher up the order. If these two i.e. dravid and sehwag can whither the storm for the first 10 odd overs, we are going to post a challenging total.

besides, our bowling has been better than expected in the last two games. so no complains there. just need to post a bigger total.

WOW! just checked the score and i think we did well! Contrary to what everyone here might believe or be hoping for, India do have a fighting chance. Rope in the openers and then Bhaji and Powar can really apply tighten the noose. However, we seem to have falters in the past 3 matches in the death, and need to be weary of that, coz if we get of to a good start i.e. "fake" pathan, or whatever that means, nails an opener or two, this is gonna go down to the wire.

So surely I would be jealous of the West Indies then not India? And if I was jealous of them why would I be happy that they are winning?

Your logic is half baked nonsense.

Trust me....as a supporter of a cricket team which has just won 3 series in a row (including giving you a wopping along the way).....there is NOTHING for me to feel jealous about.
