    harby as replacement would be quite handy if the pitch is really not a slow and low type and has more bounce.

    Yadav's doubtful? Oh ****.

    Don't tell me we're gonna bring Dinda in for him now. That kid is useless. Worst. Bowler. Ever.

    Thing is, India's mastery over spin is absolute. You'll get one instance in a decade when spinners have had good series against India.

    These are the series averages of the main spinners against India in last few years:

    Ind-NZ 2012 :- J Patel (35.14)
    Ind-Oz 2011-12 :- N Lyon (41.57)
    Ind-WI 2011 :- D Bishoo (62.28)
    Ind-Eng 2011 :- G Swann (40.69)
    Ind-WI 2011 :- D Bishoo (32.58)
    Ind-SA 2010-11 :- P Harris (64.25)
    Ind-NZ 2010 :- D Vettori (36.57)
    Ind-Oz 2010 :- N Hauritz (65.00)
    Ind-SL 2010 :- S Randiv (34.90), BAW Mendis (57.66)
    Ind-SA 2010 :- P Harris (59.50)
    Ind-SL 2009 :- Murali (65.66), Herath (48.81)
    Ind-NZ 2009 :- D Vettori (52.28)
    Ind-Eng 2008 :- Panesar (50.50), Swann (39.50)
    Ind-Oz 2008 :- C White (68.40)
    Ind-SL 2008 :- Mendis (18.38), Murali (22.23)
    Ind-SA 2008 :- P Harris (51.00)
    Ind-Oz 2007-08 :- B Hogg (60.12)
    Ind-Pak 2007 :- D Kaneria (52.33)
    Ind-Eng 2007 :- M Panesar (50.37)

    I disagree with this.

    An average of around 35 is a very adequate return on flat wickets where teams are consistently scoring 400+ . I've highlighted the ones that I think are more than acceptable. I really doubt that the seamers have done much better in Indian conditions against India.

    It will still be advantage india, I'm not doubting that, but it will place far less importance on the toss.

    the pitch is likely to have more help for the spinners, as it's already somewhat worn out apparently
    Darn, despite us losing he was probably the highlight of the test for me, bowled very well at pace on a dead pitch for pace men and looks a real prospect. Hope it not serious but if he is injured I hope we don't see him again this series and he is allowed to get over it properly (please send Finn home) and come back when ready.

    That may well be the reason they are doing this in the first place. We may not always get lucky with the toss on tracks like this first test one.

    Hello world!

    Being English... I had a bet on the series being a 2-1 win for england.... The 1 loss is out of the way now. Bring on the big odds bet gamble!

    Predictions -

    KP to hit a double century facing only left arm slow.
    Cook to get bored of being "safe" and hits 2 back to back overs of 6's
    Bresnan to bowl well for 2 overs in a row
    Ian Bell to shave his head
    The commentators never to mention KP's exile from the England squad ever again.
    The decision not to play Monty Panaesar (Who ive met... and he is a dick) in the first test, will never be mentioned again.
    Oh - England to win the next toss, put up a modest 375 all out, then to bowl India all out twice for 180 + 145, and win in just over 2 days.

    I dunno why people are getting worked up, India hasn't produced a rank turner since 08, and before that was Mumbai 04.

    Not to mention Dhoni simply asked for pitches that aren't slow and turn from day 1 instead of day 4 and 5. Which is something he's been asking for a while.

    Anyways losing out on Yadav is a big blow, he's been pretty solid for us since his debut last year. Hopefully the Mumbai pitch is more sporting than the one using in Ranji trophy. LOL@Dinda though, apt article for such a situation must be said

    It's such bull**** that he isn't even picked in the India A squad. Really gotta feel for the guy.

    He could go play abroad in the offseason, might well help him but you know India's selectors are a bit dim it seems.

    Is Yadav 100% out or is he 'doubtful'?

    Apparently he is having back trouble. One gets the feeling that he might come back as a 120 km trundler
    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
