    I want a SA win,but my gut feeling says that England will show up for this game.I'd love it if they don't though,and get molested left,right and center.

    We haven't seen SA choke yet, maybe this is their day. England have been a laughing stock so they'll be determined to put on a good show.

    Harsh on England. They're a good side, and this is anybody's game.

    I think the selection of both sides for varying reasons is going to be very interesting.

    The pitch will play more of a role for SA's selection but England may have to bring in poor form to their selection tables... i.e Anderson

    All I know is, Chennai is another road. Its where Sehwag scored a triple century against SA as the ball did absolutely nothing for the quicks i.e. no lateral movement and no pace and evenish bounce. I think it might offer something to the spinners though.

    So I think SA may go in with the batsman light against England and play 3 spinners, because you only need 6 top-order batsman on these sorts of pitches.

    I see you're new to the forum. Please don't make these sorts of posts, it's trolling and all it does is cause problems with other posters.

    That was three years back. It's still likely to be a road, however.

    Chennai pitch produces results not exactly roads

    Tests played - 30
    Results - 18
    Draws - 11
    Ties - 1

    It is like everyone says "anybody's game" but of course one team needs to choke for spectator entertainment.

    The worrying comment that I've heard since the Ireland game is that England's fate is still in their own hands. Given their inability to hold onto anything on Wednesday, is there any worse place for England's fate to rest?

    As for Sunday, if SA take a few early wickets, then England won't reach 150. Even if England to make some sort of a score, their bowling's so out of sorts that SA should win by a country mile.

    What would the Indian fans prefer? An England win - to knock South Africa further from the favourites tag and help India win the group? Or a South Africa win, to keep an England elimination alive?
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
