"At this level performance revolves more around self-belief than around talent or potential," Webster said. "Worrell and Lloyd did one thing that lifted West Indies cricket to greater heights: they were able to get the players to change their self-image and to start believing in themselves. Their self-belief was so firm and strong that nobody could beat them."

Webster presented a ready example to justify his claim. "If you look back at West Indies they were in a similar position in the late 90s. Remember we went to South Africa and got beaten very badly. And then played Australia at home and almost won the series. Everybody said we were improving. And then see what happened subsequently. So, although we have performed better in the last two Test series, it does not mean that we have turned the corner."

Broad to Barath,FOUR,good length, defended forward off a reasonably guided outside edge, runs down towards the third man fence where the slide wasn't quite in time from Anderson

Broad to Barath,FOUR,driven off a genuine outside edge this time but this runs all the way into the rope at third man

Just two down at lunch would represent a very good morning for the West Indies, many backers on more than 3.5 wickets in this session...still time though but Barath looking good and Bravo settling...

Broad to Barath,FOUR,full and tighter to off stump and again, Barath plays a delicious cover drive, this one more conventional, a checked stroke but perfect timing and placement down to the mound stand

We'll have Jimmy and his swingers from the other end. Conditions still look ripe for seam bowling
