Your post actually got me to go listen to the song again, via youtube.

The 90s, yum. Always thought the lead singer looked like Rod Quantock, he of Captain Snooze/Australian comedian fame.

Cricket Web's current Premier League Tipping Champion

tactical genius here from the BCCI.
In an attempt to make England feel completely at home, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is going that extra step. First, they decided to have no spinners play in the India ‘A’ team and now it seems that the curators have been instructed to prepare green tops for all the practice games.
Sources in the BCCI told the Indian Express that all the three matches will be played on green tops. Around a week ago, chief curator Daljit Singh was instructed to prepare pacer friendly tracks.
The Cricket club of India, which will host the first game, has always had the reputation of being a track that gives generous assistance to the seamers.
DY Patil stadium, which will host the second warm-up game, will also get the express treatment. Abey Kuruvilla, cricket-in-charge, told the Indian Express, “It will be a good cricketing wicket which will have grass and bounce on it. The pitch will certainly help pacers more but any batsman who manages to stick around can score runs.”
The third warm-up game will be played at Ahmedabad’s Motera B ground against the Board President’s XI.
But the reasoning given by the BCCI for the green tops is that they want to test out their own batsmen in tough conditions.
“England has a quality pace attack and we want to exploit it,” they said.
Exploit it to India’s advantage that is.
For once, I'm actually liking what the BCCI's doing here. The perfect treatment. Would love to see their players and former players whinge some more.

Considering what the Indian players, board and fans seem to think green tops are, I'm expecting 3 dust bowls.

I am a member on other forums but thought it would be a great time to join this one right now with the england series around the corner. So hi to all!
Anything less than 3-0 to us will be disappointing. The way you guys played v Pak and even SL shows how hopeless you are once you're on an unfamiliar pitch.
Well, at least there's one thing that makes us similar....

Prepare green tops for visitors having proven totally incapable of producing one thus far. Can't see it been the Indian Trent Bridge.
