Top 10 Windies strategies for rest of the series by Anil, 13 Nov '02

10. Neither of deeply religious players Hooper or Jacobs will be asked to captain. They will contribute by doing what they do best: praying for salvation, just outside the boundary line.

9. Dillon will be asked to lead the side. But he will be discouraged from adopting his only known strategy: instructing all fielders to follow his cue in picking their noses after every ball, in a calculated attempt to get the batsman off the field from sheer disgust.

8. Chanderpaul and Ramnarine mysteriously dropped from the team for "poor performance", joining East Indian teammate Nagamootoo on the bench.

7. Windies team, walking out to the field in Ahmedabad to loud boos from the stadium crowd, to return to the dressing room and refuse to come out until there is pin-drop silence.

6. Any boundary fielder who trips over the rope in a futile attempt to stop a four should stop play immediately and submit strong complaint to match referee about objects on the field.

5. 12th man, after every drinks break, to throw empty plastic bottles at spectators on way back to dressing room.

4. If a fielder is hit by a Sehwag shot, complain to referee about being "attacked by missiles". Refuse to take field until the ground is cleared of all Indian batsmen.

3. Chanderpaul, Ramnarine, and Nagamootoo to enter stands, blend in with Indian spectators, and throw plastic bottles at fielders when Windies are heading towards sure defeat. Hooper or Jacobs to interrupt prayers and help as needed, if they miss.

2. Catch up with payments to Asoka de Silva. He failed to give an LBW against Ganguly in Rajkot.

1. Strengthen pace attack by bringing in free agent Ajit Agarkar as spearhead.
