    I assume you mean NZ beat India 5-2 last time, cos I cant recollect NZ beating Australia 5-2. Bravo. I wonder if India prepares square turners when NZ visit next, what kind of result would we get? Flat tracks where scores of 300 are par for the course offer considerabely less advantage to home teams than Hamilton type pitches.

    the fact that nz pitches best for seam bowlers and are sometimes difficult to bat on is just like indian pitches are mostly in the favour of batters and spinners
    that's nz advange when india come to nz and have to bat on green-tops
    like nz seam bowlers have to bowl on flat-tracks in india

    I actually think it's good for the game that NZ pitches offer something different to every where else. As long as the pitches aren't doing all the work for the bowlers, then I think its ok.

    India can complain all they like about that 5-2 series. But the fact was that NZ were never in any form at that stage either and had India actually worked hard in that series they could have come out with a good result.

    The difference is that anyone can bat on flat tracks, but not everyone can bat on seaming wickets. You seem to have confused turning tracks and flat tracks. Spinners arent as effective on flat tracks. Seamers are effective on seaming tracks.

    I'm sorry, my bad. I assumed that with the "And you have what, iffy situations to back that up ?" you were referring to India, not Australia.

    Problem is when you do, it can go a bit too far (4th Test, India vs Aus!)

    He mean't biggest media-hyped series when he said "biggest". Aussie have often talked England up before the Ashes series in recent years. As professional cricketers its in their interest that there is great interest and hype before the Ashes. I remember both Mark Taylor and Steve Waugh making the same sorts of statements in the past and then thumping England.

    The last two Ashes series have actually had a pretty big build-up in the English press though, from what I understand. Leading in to both of them the English side was supposed to be the best in some time, and the best chance in a long while for England to regain the Ashes. Someone more familiar with the English sporting press can correct me on this if I'm wrong.

    Anyway, this situation is probably pretty similar. The hype is genuine and based in the fans and the media and not just spin from the cricketers themselves, but whether or not that will translate into actual results is yet to be seen.

    It looks a good series. Does anyone know if it will be shown in England?
