    England u-19 in India

    The English lads are currently touring India.

    Here's the first test scorecard, with India having won by 293 runs.

    Who are the promising players to watch out for on either side ?
    I know English leg spinner Mark Lawson is rated very highly.
    In 1995, 16 commandos of the GRU Spetsnatz went
    head to head against 16 US ARMY Rangers in Alaska in ten tests of physical strength and endurance.
    Final Result: Spetsnatz 9 US Army Rangers 1

    RIP Vladimir Belyanov (d December 24 1942) Tamanskaya Division (Taman Guards) - Pitomnik Airfield, Stalingrad

    Apparently Ben Harmison (Steve's little brother) is playing for England u-19
    and Mayank Tehlan, Virender Sehwag's cousing for India u-19.

    England look to have been horribly outplayed there.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Rayudu is rated very highly by just about everyone who's seen him. He'd be one to look out for there.

    Can't imagine the pitch would've been like anything most of 'em have played on before.

    Rayudu is excessively overrated. Young talent......teenage prodigy........budding Sachin.....blah..blah..blah...all after some good form shown in England, getting louder after 200 runs in not too many balls against a weak Andhra attack, maybe in a tiny club ground. Then he gets out for 0 and 1 against a full-strength Mumbai attack. He's struggled for a long time, and when he played in the Challenger Series, the Kenstar Trophy and a triangular in Nairobi, he had no proper shot selection, no power, no technique- is THIS an India prospect?
    Who are the promising players to watch out for on either side ?
    From the India U-19 side-
    • Gaurav Dhiman- Nippy medium-pacer who can swing the ball and also hit the ball hard coming in at 7 or 8
    • Harvinder Singh- Off-spinner from a Mumbai school who can also get lots of runs
    • Hardevender Singh- Second-placed in the Scorpio Speedster, a hunt for India's fastest bowler, in 2003-04.
    • Abid Nabi- Rated very highly by journalists, the J&K pace bowler is over six feet in height (some Indian 'fast' bowlers are well under) and bowls regularly at 140+km/h.
    • Mayank Tehlan- He's played for Delhi in Ranj a few times

    Twenty20 used to be boring.

    Steven Davies (Captain)
    Ben Harmison
    Adam Harrison
    Mark Lawson

    Are probably the most well known of the squad.

    Mark Lawson is by far the best leg spinner at this level in England, but probably crap compared to Indias young spinning prospects.
    Ben Harmison is no where near the pace of his brother...he's more an medium pacer. His batting shows more promise.
    Steven Davies is a very talented keeper / batsmen (yes im bias :P) he did well in the u-19 world cup.
    Adam Harrison is a promising bowler from Glamorgan.

    Will he get a run now Rhodes has finally been pensioned off? Or is it gonna be Pipe?

    I read interview with Davies in The Guardian where he said he was looking at getting a place in your CC side as a batter. How useful is he? Have to admit I've never seen him.

    Last i heard it was up in the air. But a friend of mine who lives next to the ground says he saw him in the gym this week wearing Worcestershire colours. So i guess we can take it as he'll be staying. I'm not happy with that cos i think he's a bit pap myself but ho hum

    He's a left handed bat. Highly rated by everyone at Worcs.
    TBH with how bad our batting was last year if he doesn't get regular games he'll consider himself extremely unlucky.

    I think the best batsman in the indian side is Shikar Dhawan, no doubt. Very stylish and talented and if he's willing to work hard, he'll definitely get somewhere.

    I don't, but then again all I've read about him has come from the keyboard of Hinton.
