    Write themselves, pretty much:

    England on Root for victory.

    Pulled up by the Root: Joe saves England

    Joe Root's the opposition: a ton for Tyke opener
    Really it'd be criminal not to have Cook, Root and Onions in the same side

    Then Mustard in for Prior, and you're set.

    Beer as the spinner?

    Basically he has stepped up nicely into the Lions squad and scored a ton against WI last season. Add in the fact he is basically the best young opener we have and that is the reason he is on tour. Even if he doesn't play now this is a fantastic learning development for his career. A case of when he plays rather than if.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

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.
    Interesting how you can write off one performance from Kohli as just a one-off yet use another one-off relative to recent form as "being in some form"

    A single big score is of far more significance than a single small one.

    Caught Mustard bowled Onions a regular form of dismissal at Durham. Think it might have happened to Cook recently.
