    don't forget we were fairly competitive last time down under - the team has only improved...I'll expect something like 2-1 in Australia's favor

    Why is India playing 3 test series against WI? On the other hand, why is England paying only two test series against Pakistan and NZ? This is such bullshit!

    We should be grateful we're getting a 2- Test series against England and be thankful they haven't decided to swap one of them for 3 meaningless T20s....

    WestIndies and Bang still get the odd 3-Test series...clearly NZ is even a poor cousin to them these days

    Depressing as ****.

    Shami, Bhuvi, Umesh, Ashwin and Hardik will take 14 wickets. Smith will declare with 1 hour to spare on day 4, setting India a target of 375. Kohli and co. will chase with one hour to spare on day 5.

    I think that's highly debatable. The only game that was a close contest at all was Adelaide and that's because Australia declared generously twice.

    I don't think Smith will be as generous with declarations as Clarke was, he seems to be developing into a more conservative and sensible captain

    All I am saying is India may win one out of 4 test matches. I'm not saying India will win the series or anything. It seems feasible because last time we came very close to winning one.

    I wouldn't put it past them at all. It will depend heavily on the types of pitches served up and India are a real wild card. They haven't played overseas (WI and Asia don't count) in like 2 years and no one knows how they will go.

    Well Clarke won that test. Smith might let us get away with draws if he gets defensive.

    That's a very good point, but it could so easily have gone the other way. And it would have looked pretty silly if India went 1-0 up in the series despite being outplayed.

    Australia are fools and will serve up pitches to suit India like last time. I can only dream that they would serve up 4 fast bouncy pitches. It's not India ever give Australia anything but what they are **** on. I can see India pulling off a win in Sydney, and securing draws in Melbourne and Perth because Perth wont be fast and bouncy. It will be a perfect for batting and getting 5 days of play in because the new stadium won't risk having a 3 dayer. Adelaide will be our best chance for the win.

    Edit: oops. In the poll I am one of the idiots who said India will win 3. I thought it was how many will they lose.

    Edit edit: Double Doh. We have given the Indians Adelaide without guaranteeing it to be a day nighter. Bet you it is a day game which means India have a chance there too.

    (don't mind me - India piss me off because they have such big heads on the back of 9 series wins on the trot - the 3 away ones being sri lanka, bangladesh and windies. I just want to see their heads roll like they should have last time before the unfortunate incident made bouncers out of vogue for a season.)

    India didn't win in Bangladesh, that match and series was drawn. Only away wins were in Lanka and the Windies.
