    I'll tell you one thing, I reckon every Aussie spinner looks at English pitches envious. I know I do.

    I think the small grounds is an issue that doesn't help; young spinners can beat a batsman, have him miscue sixes quite easily, and you can't blame the captain for not keeping him on when it happens a number of times. If the boundary was bigger, he could have three fa. Plus the lack of bowling restrictions in many leagues, which can make the standard better, does encourage your medium pacers that can get through 15+ overs straight.

    Those damp wickets allow the ball to turn, even if it is slow turn, and keeps the spinners in the game.

    There's just two of them doing it atm ffs. Out of so many Indian posters on this forum, just two.

    Yeah but they'd probably make up over 50% of the Indian posting population if we didn't have a ban button.

    Cribb posting twice means he thinks they'd make up 100%. WAC.

    India A bat first. Pity there's no proper coverage of the game.

    Hmm, no Bairstow. Looks like Samit could be playing the first Test if he makes a decent fist of this match, as I'm sure they'd not just decide to 'rest' Bairstow from this one...

    I reckon this will be the side they go with for the first test, with Broad in for Bres. Could easily change depending on what happens in the warm ups though.

    Samit shouldn't play if they are considering him as bowling option in tests.
