    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

    Unadkat will be one to watch. He's doing well in ODs, with a good strike-economy combo, but needs to get either aspect better just a bit. Not outright quick, but very tall, and gets good bounce, and moves it a little bit. He'll be very productive, if not lethal, on a green-top or hard-top, but on a featherbed, he'll get smashed around for Umesh Yadav economy rates and be lucky to get a wicket or two, and will keep a decent economy but struggle to chip on a turner. However, with Umesh being seen as a Test specialist, this bloke may be the man to turn to during limited-overs games. It just remains to be seen how much India's ODI side will miss Umesh on flat decks when they struggle to see off Johnson, Starc and Pattinson even as their own get whacked or patted around.

    This is a piss take, surely? I know he's unfit, but he's only been in the job three months. HTF do you need to rest up in those circumstances? He'd get more rest in a 5 star hotel in Mumbai than he would having to do the house work at the behest of his missus anyway. Stupid **** he is.

    Make that Johnson, McKay (average of 22 in 50 ODIs squeezes to average of 18 against India, and he chips a lot of wickets against them) and River (although he's a little new, he seems to do well on flats).

    It's just so ironic that a bloke who wants to pander to the masses and refuses to acknowledge that rotating players is part and parcel of modern cricket is resting himself after one series.

    Wonder how long it is because Australia go down the England route of one coach for tests and one for the rest.

    I would have loved to see Cameron White in this ODI side. But I don't blame the selectors for not picking him.

    A big Ryobi tournament for him and he could really push Voges, Ferguson, Maxwell for middle-order place. After watching the Victoria-SA match the other day White looked a lot better than Ferguson.

    should've been played instead of the 4 test series at the start of the year imo.

    BK-JDU-Shami-Mish-Ash for the T20I match. Anybody's guess what the bowling for ODIs will be. We'll see BK-Ish-JDU bowling together, but spin may be rotated heavily, with Yuvraj back but not bowling so much, Mishra doing decently in the patches he got, Ashwin not so much, and Jadeja not at all in the CLT20 without getting much runs. Batting picks itself, with Rohit-Dhawan-Kohli-Raina-Yuvraj-Dhoni for all the games, barring injury.

    These seam-up blokes are better for ODs than Umesh Yadav, but will they survive the flat decks of this series? JDU is the best of this bunch.
