West Indies: Cricket victory over India

Today Trinidad and Tobago hosted the fourth match in the current West Indies vs India One Day International cricket series. Francomenz didn't make it to the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain to watch the match, but she followed it on the radio. “Too exciting!!!” she wrote when West Indies captain Brian Lara made a half century. When Lara was caught out, she wondered if she'd jinxed him. But in the end the West Indies won the match and the series; Francomenz explained just why this victory is so important.
