Second Test at Queens Park Oval

Arriving into Trinidad ready for the second test of the series against the West Indies, I actually missed Day 1 due to illness, but listened from the hotel room through streaming radio. Tentatively back on deck for Day 2, I am not one to miss Chick Pink Day! I caught the bus in with the Waving The Flag crew, and then followed them all the way upstairs to the second level of the BG T&T/Scotiabank Stand. A great view of the ground, we settled in for the days play.

We watched Hussey bat through to a gallant 73, before a rain delay took us too and past lunch. But then a cracking start by our Aussie bowlers had 3 quick wickets, which managed to swing the momentum of the match back into the balance.

Today has been a fairly slow day for Australia, with the West Indian batsmen scoring steadily throughout the day, and through another lengthy rain delay.

Finally, a breakthrough was made, followed by 3 more in close succession, and again the balance of the game seems to have returned to a neutral setting.

We have managed to dance up a storm tonight at the All Out Bar at the Member's Pavilion at the ground, having a great night. So much fun, which such a great group!
