West Indies start with a win

It was a Dwaynetastic victory for the West Indies over Pakistan. Dwayne Smith - he of the 93 ball hundred on Test debut - hit 32 off 15 balls and then took 3-36. His co-Dwayne - Bravo - took 3-42.

Of the two, we rate Dwayne Bravo the better player. At 23, he's integral to the West Indies future plans, but Smith's certainly an exciting batsman. The pair of them could start a rich Dwaynasty.

It's notable as well that the Windies, who are of course on home territory, featured five seam bowlers and didn't turn to Chris Gayle's spin once. Is this significant, or is it just that seam bowling was working and why change a winning formula?

We're pleased because we put three whole pounds on the Windies to win this tournament. We also went for Sri Lanka.
