    Reckon the pitch will be really dry and abrasive. Only a madman would go in without a spinner.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Compton done beautifully in the air and off the pitch by Agar. Haddin completes the stumping. Great to watch. #cricket

    it's destiny

    Just no way this will happen surley?

    Either way, your favourite chin in cricket is going to greatly improve his record at his home ground next week.

    ha never heard of that one.

    Be interesting to see what would happen if the pitch at trent bridge is unusually spin friendly. Two pretty woeful sides at playing spin, but it would surely play into England's hands more given Swann.

    Didn't know where to post this exactly but I've just been watching the T20 game between Middlesex and Essex at Lords and I hope the Test pitch has more life in it. I've never seen a Lords pitch so slow and dry.
