    Yup, much more likely. In any case, I will back [Insert Indian Random Batting Order] against Swann in India every day. If they win, it won't be on Swann's back - though he could be valuable to keep things tight and maybe a wicket or two.

    Well, unless he happens to outbowl Warne, Murali and a bunch of other spinners who've toured. Which is not probable and would only happen on a massive dustbowl...and then I'd back the two Indian spinners anyway.

    AWTA. I'm convinced that none of the teams today stand a chance against India at home until the fab 3 retire.

    I expect a load of horrible abuse now so go ahead with it...
    Haha nah, you can hate him all you like. Just don't try to pretend he's not awesome at cricket .

    I like him because he's really underrated so I find myself sticking up for him a lot. And because he's such a sick fielder. Not too fussed about his off-field persona, evangelically Christian so I suspect I might find him rather annoying in person, but I really like him as a cricketer.

    Not really concerned about the fab three in India. Outside India, the fab three will be a big loss and that's going to be a huge huge concern.

    Inside India, you can insert a whole boatload of Jaffer-esque replacements and you'd get double centurions left and right.

    Sure, if Udal is your main spinner, I suppose you've got more problems. The reason the top spinners do worse in India is because the team is prepared and just doesn't take risks. Sometimes they have a brain farts against mediocre spinners because try to go after them way too much (esp. if thats the only real weak link). If you look at some of those wickets, the shots they played they would never play against a Warne, or even a Swann.

    Nah, forget Udal, this is much worse for India:



    I'd back England to win if they somehow came with him as their frontline bowler .

    Meh, India have a shot at winning but it might lead to injuries. Need to keep Zaheer nice and fit for the English tour so I can bump this thread....

    Reckon Clarke is better than Udal tbh. Just like North being better than Doherty, ie.

    Hey, Michael Clarke did it.. also he was pretty decent in his debut series when he wasn't half the spinner he is now.

    I wish they'd just produce those post-apocalyptic wastelands every match.

    Beat you to it . And yes, if you come with Michael Clarke as the frontline spinner, I'd back England.

    Why would I come to India with Michael Clarke as my frontline spinner?
