    Reminds me of a friend of mine, who told me he was "slightly worried" about Hurricane Sandy, as we chatted on the phone the other day. (The storm was just approaching, and he was stood totally exposed on the roof of a New York skyscraper with a tasty view of the Atlantic, at the time). Bell's time is up. The birth of the kid and (I'm sure) his zealous desire to do the modern thing and fight mommy for the right to change nappies...forever presents an ideal opportunity to bow out gracefully and save face. He should grab it.
    "In 2009 he lost his old, faded India cap, when it was stolen from a ground. He was very, very upset about it. It was dear to him and he was extremely proud to wear it."

    I shall do what I usually do, watch Sky while listening to TMS.

    There's a slight delay between commentary and action but that helps to ensure that I don't miss anything.

    Me too but we will really be watching Star TV on the SKY channel while listening to TMS. I like being able to hear what is happening a few seconds before seeing it.

    Personally think Sky's commentary has really nosedived this past year or so. Athers is really the only one worth listening to now and Coney will be great value when England tour NZ.

    Agree with this. Still the best lot out there but it was painful to see Nasser etc becoming cheerleaders during the last summer.

    General thought - As an Indian fan, the batting line up must be a concern. Only Pujara, Kohli and Dhoni got any runs at all against New Zealand. Against a stronger unit, that's too thin a lineup going into the series. Hopefully one of the seniors (openers and Tendulkar) hit form, and we get a better #6 than Rain.

    Raina must be retained at all costs for ****s and giggles.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Not sure if you follow the domestic scene, but Tendulkar just hit a better than run a ball hundred. So I think he's in some form. Not much can be said about the openers, as both of them flopped in the Ranji Trophy matches. Kohli had a bad game but going by his form I think that's just a one off. Pujara is coming off a stellar Challenger Trophy, and Yuvraj just followed up his double hundred with a half century and a fifer against the touring Englishmen. I don't think Raina is going to play.

    Isn't it more England's modus operandi to let the weather bat for them?

    Wicket for Root just before lunch. Bowling before Patel, oddly enough.

    How did this Root chap end up on tour? I just clicked on his cricinfo profile, and his recent form is appalling. Mainly 20/20, granted, but the recent first class performances are as bad if not worse.

    Sehwag is sporting an external injury and has not opened for Delhi in their second innings.

    Young and an opener.

    But I was surprised too.

    I think Dusty and co, being basically good eggs, saw the enormous potential in his surname for puns for lazy hacks, so he's an investment in the future.

    Write themselves, pretty much:

    England on Root for victory.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
