Testing times

G'morning all. The expected annihilation of Bangladesh well under way; but the one I'm looking forward to today is the Pak-Windies match up.
Way too much riding on that one, for both sides. For Pakistan -- and coach Bob Woolmer -- it is crucial to maintain the momentum of the recent past; for stand-in captain Younis Khan -- who, IMHO, was way more inspirational than the laid back Inzy during the recent series against India, a chance to spread his wings in the Test arena, and underscore the point that he deserves the captain's mantle at some point; for Woolmer and the bowlers, a chance to prove the point that a team effort by a bunch of less talented, but more committed, bowlers is way better than solo stars singing their own tune.
And for West Indies? Simple -- survival. Each successive defeat is an added nail in the coffin of Carribbean cricket -- the team simply can not afford to lose this one.
With all this and more at stake, should be a cracker -- can't wait. Meanwhile, just got in, have to do the morning-work thing -- but will be back on here in, oh, I'd think an hour and a half, with more items of interest.
