Vimes tells it how it is:
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.

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.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
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.
"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."
- Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)
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.

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.
