Suffering Windies cricket and T&T football fans

I have had some won­der­ful Sat­ur­days but my good­ness, Sat­ur­day, June 24th was def­i­nite­ly a day to for­get.

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.

UPDATE: Brian "fine and watching the cricket"

Brian Lara is said to be "fine and watching the cricket" after being taken to hospital after complaining of chest pains on Tuesday.

The Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency said quoting a source close to the player that the 50-year-old was rushed to the hospital after complaining of discomfort during a promotional event.

Lara was in Mumbai to take part in events organised by Star Sports, the official broadcasters of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup in India.

Malinga burst stuns England

Veteran pacer Lasith Malinga produced his best bowling at the ICC World Cup as Sri Lanka pulled off a stunning 20-run upset of pre-tournament favourites and hosts England at Headingley, Leeds, Friday.
Defending 232 in the second innings, Malinga returned figures of four wickets for 43 runs as England were skittled out for 212 - their second loss of the tournament.
Malinga removed the heart of the England batting order in two spells, including the scalps of Jonny Bairstow (0), James Vince (14), Joe Root (57) and Jos Butler (10).
