first india test kicks off thursday woohoo
not sure how much you can take out of it given the bcci has declared a moratorium on spin bowling but nearly everyone's been making runs in the warm up games. compton looks likely to get the nod opening, samit's done enough with bat and ball to be the second spinner despite a) being shit & b) nobody liking him.
less promising news on the bowling front with seemingly the entire attack straining to strain something/buggering off back to england at the last minute. ah well.
i think we're going to get hammered but i always think that so who knows. cricket!
