Strauss's England team put the rest of the world to shame
Haha didn't expect Burgey to make this thread exciting. Expected the English fans like GIMH to get emotional here.
"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

The delivery from Ashwin to take out Compton was gold standard. Wonderfully flighted, lured the batsman forward and then dipped, pitched and viciously turned inward between the smallest of gaps between bat and pad to take out the stumps. Brilliant stuff!
Tomorrow's opening session decides the series, if England battle back they have hope of being competitive at times, if not then it looks odds on there will be a 4-0 scoreline. Fortunately they currently have their 2 best bats in and their best player of spin (Prior) to come. I'd be tempted to send Prior in next as Bell is usually a walking wicket against decent spin bowling.
If I was Fletcher I would give him a target now of over 30 with the bat and under 30 with the ball after 50+ tests. Has the talent to do it and if he gets close then India have a great player to build their team around in the future.

And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
It's not the first time Burgey has tried to troll and it's backfired on him, resulting in him tweaking his initial stance on the topic and biting. Makes for good entertainment.
If England were to get bowled out relatively early tommorow, should Dhoni enforce the follow on or keep batting?
I suppose conventional wisdom says to enforce it, but how awesome would it be if the English bowlers had to bowl again so soon after spending almost 2 days in the field

Burgey's insane ramblings about the best thing about this match.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
At what point does Trott's place in the side come into question? Been utter pish for a year.
