    More fitness worries

    News slightly more encouraging on Finn, but they'd be mad to risk him for the First Test, IMHO.
    Do I contradict myself?

    As far as I can tell only the top 3 Haryana batsmen can bat and two of them scored fifties, one of whom is currently not out. Bresnan says the pitch is the best for batting that he has ever seen though, so there's that. Can't read too much into the game imo, yeah the spinners got 8 wickets for <200 but it seems most of those were when the lower middle order onwards were on a cbf mode with 500+ already on the board.

    Most importantly however -

    Poor Prior was obliged to make two emergency dashes for the bathroom, but England's initial request to use a substitute wicketkeeper from outside their playing XI was declined by the umpires and match referee. While the convention in English domestic cricket permits a substitution on the grounds that the ECB believes that county cricket could be lessened as a spectacle by the use of a make-shift wicket-keeper, the Laws of the game (Law 2:3 specifically) actually forbid it. Ultimately, however, the BCCI, in an admirably magnanimous gesture, were contacted and made a special dispensation towards England. Jonny Bairstow took the gloves and Prior retired to a dark room.
    BCCI doing something good

    Is it wrong of me to wish Meaker get's a Test ahead of Onions, just to see Scaly's reaction?

    You'd probably see some angry Geordie bloke in the crowd by the first test ranting about it tbh.

    Warney's a freelance commentator; just does things game by game. Not actually a permanent part of either team.

    Yeah, he does radio over here. They rotate him, Vic Marks, Tufnell and Vaughan as summarisers.

    One bonus, no Vaughan this series as he is dancing.
