    Still remember the Aussie TV putting the heat-sensing camera on him and Pietersen during the last Ashes in Australia and Cook barely looking as if he was breaking a sweat on the heat-cam during one of his epic innings - whilst Pietersen looked a mass of red-heat. That must be a huge benefit for a batsman who values his wicket and may help explain some of his success in India (if he can stand the heat a lot more than his counterparts)

    I think someone from the England camp's definitely leaked something about Morgan playing to the travelling press. Stephen Brenkley mentioned his cack-handedness being a factor in today's Independent.

    Hope to god it's a red herring.

    You might as well give Johnny a go at it, he ones of the future batsmen for England and he'll have to play on the SC sometime.

    I'm with Dhoni on this one.

    It's not about "rank turners" so much as it is about offering decent bounce and the chance to get the slips in play.

    It's also about making sure that winning the toss is the most important part of the match.

    agreed!

    bounce brings all bowlers into play.

    Rank turners? The pitches need to help the bowlers roll the visitors out between 250 and 300, so that the Indians are assured of a win. While rank turners may give Swann and Panesar an advantage against the Indian side, India can compete if they bowl better. They can't compete on a flat deck when facing a massive first-innings deficit- they lost in Bangalore in 2005 and Nagpur in 2010, and almost lost against NZ in Mohali in 2003. Those were typical win-the-toss-win-the-match pitches, and I'd back the Indian batting on bowler-friendly decks a lot more than Indian bowling on flat decks.

    Well there's no reason you shouldn't believe it, as he was always the likely one to get the job. Whether you agree with it is another matter, but I think it's good to see a bowler get given the job.

    i doubt we'd see 'dustbowls' 'rank turners'. there hasn't been one of those for a long time.
    however we may finally see wickets that provide a better spectacle.

    Some more bounce would be good for both sides but from what I've heard we're gonna be playing on a pitch that got used for a game a few week back.
