England worked themselves into a winning position despite strong West Indies resistance in their second innings on the fourth day of the first Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Thursday.
A recurring back injury will certainly keep Chris Gayle out of the upcoming home Test series against England, but the destructive West Indies batsman insists that he is not retiring from any format of the game.
India's pace battery have looked awry since the four-match Test series against Australia and the bad form has continued in the ODI series too. With the World Cup starting in February, pundits and fans alike have cited India's lack of good quick bowlers would hurt them in the coveted event to be held in Australia and New Zealand.
Suresh Raina's time at the crease in India's second innings against Australia in the fourth Test at Sydney, lasted only three deliveries as the southpaw scored a second successive nought. For a player who made a comeback to the Test team after more than two years, his misery in the longer format of the game was a sight very similar to his Test struggles earlier.
