    Patel plays imo because England think he is in their top 6 batsmen in these conditions. I wouldn't disagree. On a seperate note he isn't a good fielder but he is lightyears ahead of Monty.

    If England win the toss (and bat) they have a chance. If they don't they almost certainly lose imo.

    Indeed.

    It's all getting a bit circular this argument.

    Hey what's new. I'm 95% certain of what the side will be. It's got a decent balance, but I guess the Patel pick is critical, because he gives us that balance, but ihe could very possibly be useless.

    Five bowlers is silly IMHO, as our batsmen where what failed in UAE, two seamers leaves us stretched if the ball starts reversing and doesn't spin much. 3 seamers with JB means we only have 4 bowlers with Swann not playing in a bit, or Broad carrying an injury.

    They'll go safe, they'll go Samit. They do believe him to be a good player of spin, we'll see over the next two matches.

    Should be said that in his last Test Match Patel bowled 41 overs at just over 2 an over, and certainly helped create pressure for Swann to win the match.

    Really don't see the value of picking two spinners if its gonna turn square then KP and Patel will be able to do the damage with Swann. IF its not gonna be a rank turner then there's not much point playing 2 frontline spinners either because India play spin far better than they do pace.

    Bresnan Broad and Jimmeh will be the seamers with Swann as the frontline spinner I reckon.

    I don't disagree with your point VT it is just with the fitness doubt over Broad they may consider an extra spinner instead of Onions coming in. I'd be surprised now though if we don't go in with the attack that beat India over here of Anderson, Broad, Bresnan and Swann with Fatit and KP adding extra spin options as and when needed.

    Prediction Time::

    If India bat's first we may score around 340+/- for 5 at the end of the day

    If England Bat's first it may be something like 290+/- for 3
    Love You India

    the gambhiring has actually begun in earnest...
    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

    Planning to watch from the start, but watching in bed means I won't be on-line. Going to have to force myself to get up I think, coffee will be needed and I have to leave early (by 5.30) in any case.

    Just came across this stat - India has not lost an home test series for eight and a half years since last beaten by the all conquering Australians in 2004. I know this might not be an all-time record or anything but it's an amazing feat for a test nation which not only plays a solid amount of test cricket but also one which has been for most of those nine years one with many glaring loopholes.

    Looking forward to catching the start tomorrow, Can only watch three days after which I have to fly to Delhi and then work begins for the next 30 days and the Supreme Court lawyer under whom I am working told me that he has three ground rules - 1. There are no timings in litigation, 2. There are no sundays in litigation, 3. There are no sick leaves in litigation. Sounds very fun.
