The hour is almost upon us. I'm really excited about this, more so than the new football season which is something I never thought I'd say.
Should be a fascinating series with several great Indian players essentially bowing out soon after, Strauss under a bit of pressure and the World number 1 status up for grabs.
Interesting that India have made a stink about using technology mind. No hawk-eye or Leminy Snicket (will the Tv coverage still be allowed to use them out of curiosity?), meaning a lot of pressure on the umpires to get it right. Given Harper's annoyance at India's 'bullying' tactics on field - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/14193219.stm - it'll be interesting to see how it goes.
So what are your predictions? And who can make the difference?
