I don't really care what wicket india prepare just all this bull**** about they did this, so we're going to do this is really childish.
    Maybe you do not care mate, but people like Vaughan and Bumble have been crying about India A not playing any spiinners even though we have the like of Yuvraj and Raina lest we forget who are more than capable of giving England a few heacaches in the warm up game.

    Kohli was simply stating what we ae doing is fair and to be honest we are being up front that we will be playing you on rank turners there is no doubt about that!

    It is refreshing to see Kohli be so up front, that to me is great sportsmanship something perhaps our opponents on this tour will learn from one day.

    Should probably appoint an extra mod or two for this series. Things are about to get heated.

    But hey, I'm not complaining! I've got my popcorn ready.

    Yeah mate I dont know what is so funny, frankly the team and fans are all on board to give England an absolute whipping in this series, as I say they will be playing on rank turners, but the fact they have been warned about it shows sensational sportsmanship on our part to be quite honest.

    The fact is England are a b grade team against any kind of spin bowling in sub continent conditions.

    Kohli fan, I don't think anyone is saying India don't have a right to produce rank turners against England. But for Kohli to imply that England went out of their way to produce flat pitches against India in the warm up game, and then prepare green tops in the tests, then he's quite simply delusional.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Yeah look mate if you look back at those games last year the decks were flat in the warm up games and veyr green come the test, whether that was by accident or planning thats for you to decide and if it was planned England are in their rights to do that, just as we are to play a rank turner as you say.

    Well as has already been mentioned India were bowled out on those flat pitches, and to call the Test Pitches very green is pathetically partisan, and not exactly top sportsmanship, considering England did alright.

    Kohli's clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed if he thinks the Poms deliberately gave India flat pitches in the warm ups last summer. Having said that, they did play a pathetic side in the tour game and also disallowed Monty from bowling to Tendu in the nets. Michael Vaughan likes trolling on twitter. He's lost the right to say anything against anyone after the murray mints fiasco.

    Whats this pathetic side in the tour game then, the one who bowled India out for 200 odd.

    What Murray mint fiasco? Any rules broken.

    I will be unpopular for saying this, but this English team is the most overrated team in recent times. Apart from beating an Australian side beleaguered with problems and an injury hit Indian side (who are traditionally crap travellers anyway), what have they done? Lost to WI in early 2009 (WI!), lost to a bottom ranked Pakistan side 3-0 and even managed to lose a test to Sri Lanka post Murali. We are definitely a much more deserving number 1 and our tussle with the crims should be make for much better viewing. Aside from the horrible Ashes loss, Australia haven't lagged behind anywhere/ On the contrary, they beat SL in SL on rank turners and demolished a full strength Indian side at home.

    Yeah because teams are breaking rules if they choose not to play certain types of bowlers!

    If by some minor miracle, England are outplayed by this joke of an Indian A side in the tour game that wouldn't make it any less pathetic a side. To rate a team based on that is daft.

    WTF, I've not even talked about India's team or selection, couldn't give a monkeys. Was just suggesting what you said about India's tour here was total BS. You talked about pathetic teams first. Can't fathom your problem really.

    I actually think producing raging bunsens is going to be counter-productive for the home side. As last winter showed England don't need to ball to be ragging square to struggle against slow bowling.

    A normal Indian pitch that takes a little slow turn as the game advances is India's best bet. A track that spins like a top from day one is going to nullify the Indians' advantage in playing spin as the game becomes more of a lottery. It also brings England's second, third and even fourth spin options (Pietersen, Root and Patel could all conceivably play) into the equation, where they'd just be fill-in fodder on a trad Indian surface.

    But as for England producing green tops in 2011? Huh? The kind of scores we racked up don't suggest overly sporty decks. Virat's on drugs, IMHO.
