Why WI clinched the series

I am NOT a cricket fan, but Brian Lara's comment just could not be missed. He attributed the Windies' win to Indian coach Chappell's sly remark:

India coach Greg Chappell had said at the start of the series that West Indies could not be underestimated and were a team, who could quickly turn things around, but... “At the moment, they probably seem to have forgotten how to win.”

West Indies skipper Brian Lara took offence to the comment and after clinching the five-match series against India 3-1 yesterday, he chose to respond. “It was a sly remark. The guys took notice of his comments and turned the tables on India. He (Greg) may be right but he was not right in the last two weeks,” said Lara with the obvious intention to rub it in.

As is the Indian wont, now Ganguly would begin to be sorely missed. He, who was everyone's unanimously decided on villain would now be the blue-eyed boy, the only one who can rescue India against the evil combine of Greg-Dravid.
