ENGLAND - For two sessions, West Indies, debilitated by the IPL, were routinely preyed upon by England. Six wickets down for 138 shortly before tea, their plight was there for all to see.

PHILIPSBURG - Just two weeks to go will this year’s Boardwalk Triathlon and we have a few teams looking for swimmers and runners.

ENGLAND - Six minutes before tea on the fourth day, Shivnarine Chanderpaul finally cracked. Another Test innings of monumental patience ended when he swept at Graeme Swann and Marais Erasmus raised his finger for the lbw decision that England begged.

PHILIPSBURG - It was a realization of part of his dreams in 2003 when Arnold Henry received a full basketball scholarship to the United States where he played for five different schools, namely Massanutten Military Academy, the University of Vermont, Carl Albert State College, University of North Florida, and Edward Waters College.

Now that he has freed himself of his commitments to Somerset for later this summer, it is inconceivable that, barring injury, Gayle will not be part of the West Indies squad for the limited-overs segment of the current England tour.
