    Predictions for England winter tours in IND & PAK

    I will assume these will both be 3 test series? I am not sure what order they are in so that could influence my predictions.

    However, for now I will go with.

    India to win 2-0, Pakistan to win 2-1.

    Thoughts?

    Do you think they will bowl effectively in subcontinent conditions?

    Would you use the current attack or make any changes?

    if india play like they are playing right now, england has a very good chance, however if indian batsmen get back in touch and harb and kumble are in good form and the wickets favour spinners, england will find it extremely tough to conquer the conditions, i am of course talking about tests, one dayers are anybody's game.....

    as for pakistan, it is very difficult to predict what they will or will not do, they have the ability to blow england away in home conditions or be blown away depending on the attitude of the team that takes the field....

    We should get the ashes finsihed first really but i think England will win both series. Jones and Flintoffs ability too reverse swing will be vital and i think the batsmen will get a lot of runs against india especialy

    yeah i do, with the likes of Flintoff, Harmison & Jones 3 quick bowlers will be very handy with the use of the reverse swing over their along with Gilo who is a proven performer in those conditions. So yeah i think England have an attack that can be very effective in the sub-continent.

    Only possible change is Hoggard for a second spinner.

    Would definitely back us to defeat Pakistan, but India - especially if the pitches are big turners - wll be difficult. There's no way I'm counting us out but it'll be tough.

    I agree in the india seires it will be the England pace atack is miles better than the indian one and although the indian spinners are obviously better i still think engalnd as a unit will have the edge. I really like India especialy the batsmen but England open pair is stronger because india still havnt found an efective second opener and while dravid and tendulkar are clearly amazing i think england have 6 quality batsmen and will have the edge in what will be a vey tought series.

    I wonder if they'll stick with Batty. They probably will because there aren't any obvious candidates crying out to be picked.

    But I'd like to see them try someone else because Batty hasn't looked threatening. Because no one else is outstanding with the ball I think they'll go with Batty because he can "supposedly" bat and Fletcher wants runs from his spinners.

    How many one dayers will there be, six, seven?

    If so I'll go with 4-2 or 5-2 to Pak.

    Eh ???
    Since when did Flintoff become a quality batsman ?
    And Bell ? he is even more unproven than a virgin before her prom night...
    I dont think England will even draw the series, simply because England doesnt know how to bat against spin.
