Still not a big 20/20 fan, but, wow, what a finish.

Wish I'd been able to stay up and watch it, sounds like a pearler.

If you were a West Indian, why would you bother with Test cricket? Seems like their future, sadly, is in T20.

Loved Samuels slamming Shane Warne.

What a horrible blow to a very promising career. Poor guy.

Also, what's up with that third-last paragraph that at 5'6" Taylor was possibly "too short" to play international cricket? Where does that leave Sachin Tendulkar, who's an inch or two shorter still? Or Brendon McCullum, who's barely an inch taller? Yeah Sachin and BMac clearly needed a few more inches to make it at international level. Come on.

Agreed wholeheartedly. Or Warner. Hell, let's talk about Aravinda de Silva who was 5'3. Cricket is a sport where height should matter relatively little.

If anything, being tall is a disadvantage in getting no ball calls. If you're a seven foot giant, the bowler's got to actually try to bowl a full toss above the waist or repeated bouncers above head height! If you're five foot, every second delivery from a wayward bowler trying for a yorker is going to be a free hit.

Also, if you're 7 foot tall you can't really field, see Mohammad Irfan.

Surely he should just be put right on the boundary and told to catch sixes.

Like remember that amazing one-handed screamer Vettori took in the World Cup? That was probably about chest-height for Irfan.

Incredibly harrowing read. We are very lucky to still have him.
