    ***Official*** India in England 2014

    WE WILL HAVE REVENGE

    Thu 26 - Sat 28 June: Three-day game v Leicestershire, Grace Road

    Tue 1 - Thu 3 July: Three-day game v Derbyshire, Derby

    Wed 9 - Sun 13 July: First Investec Test Match, Trent Bridge

    Thu 17 - Mon 21 July: Second Investec Test Match, Lord's

    Sun 27 - Thu 31 July: Third Investec Test Match, Ageas Bowl**

    Thu 7 - Mon 11 Aug: Fourth Investec Test Match, Emirates Old Trafford

    Fri 15 - Tues 19 Aug: Fifth Investec Test Match, Kia Oval

    Fri 22 Aug: Fifty-over game v Middlesex, Lord's

    Mon 25 Aug: Royal London One-Day Series 1st ODI, Bristol

    Wed 27 Aug: Royal London One-Day Series 2nd ODI, SWALEC Stadium

    Sat 30 Aug: Royal London One-Day Series 3rd ODI, Trent Bridge

    Tue 2 Sept: Royal London One-Day Series 4th ODI, Edgbaston

    Fri 5 Sept: Royal London One-Day Series 5th ODI, Headingley

    Sun 7 Sept: NatWest International T20, Edgbaston

    Mon 8 Sept: India team departs UK




    Indian Squad (Tests): MS Dhoni (capt), M Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishwar Pandey, Ishant Sharma, Stuart Binny, Varun Aaron, Wriddhiman Saha, Pankaj Singh

    So Zaheer is out, at least partially due to injury. Gambhir is back which is pretty gun imo. Pankaj Singh really deserves this call up, good on him.

    Would have been a pretty inoffensive squad (even ignoring the inclusion of Aaron) if not for Stuart ****ing Binny. In the Test Squad. What a ****ing joke.

    Why have they named the squad so early?

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    India Test squad announced. Gutted Zaheer Khan has not been picked. I know he hasn't done as well last couple of tours, BUT he almost single handedly won India the test series when India won 1-0 here 4 years ago.
    His record in recent tours to England is fantastic, and he would always be a threat in English conditions. Indian media are not very happy as well with him being dropped for the tour.

    Gambhir is the only back up batsman in the whole squad as its the bowlers who would be chopped and changed.
    Starting team in my opinion and I normally get it right

    1) Dhawan
    2) Vijay
    3) Pujara
    4) Kohli
    5) Sharma
    6) Rahane
    7) Dhoni
    8) Jadeja
    9) Aaron (Indias fastest ever bowler lol, who has to play imo)
    10) Shami
    11) Ishant Sharma (ffs!)

    Bowling line up could cost India the chance of winning the series, not that there is much hope.
    Confident England fans?
    My prediction is 3-1 to England in the 5 tests.

    Bhuvi will almost definitely play ahead of Aaron imo. Other than that it looks right.

    I still remember how in an interview he said he didn't bowl too badly in England, while pointing to his one 4wh at Lords. Just couldn't believe the audacity.

    If Yadav is fit then his exclusion is a joke. Second best quick India have.

    Seam attack doesn't look much, and big series for Ashwin as he needs to start bowling well away from home. Batting line up looks superb though.

    MS Dhoni (capt. & wk), M Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishwar Pandey, Ishant Sharma, Stuart Binny, Varun Aaron, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Pankaj Singh

    That's the squad for the tour. Mixed feelings, really. Glad Zaheer has been shown the door, and that Pankaj Singh finally gets a go. I wanted Gambhir in the squad after the SA tour because I thought Dhawan would be useless overseas but he proved me wrong in NZ, so don't know how to feel about that. Dropping Yadav is bull**** but realistically only one of him and Pankaj could get in with Ishant being Dhoni's bff.

    But Binny? Stuart ****ing Binny? Can't believe this ****. What has that little **** done to command a spot in the squad apart from being related to a mediocre former Indian crickete who bowled pathetic dibbly dobbly mediums. The bloke is a rubbish cricketer who is useless in all disciplines of importance on a cricket field. If he's in there to make the other guys in the squad feel a little better about themselves and think " Well we may get blanked 5-0 but atleast I'm better than this joke of an 'all rounder'" then bravo, selectors. Bravo.

    Edit: Wait Aaron is in the squad? Yadav is surely better than him tbh, but whatever, atleast a young guy gets a chance
