Apologies for starting this thread early, but England (and Wales) might be facing a national crisis as aging strike bowler James 'Jimmy' Anderson is under investigation for abusing Jadeja in a walking off the field incident in the first test. If the all-rounder is found guilty, he could be banned for up to 4 tests, potentially leaving him really, really fresh for the first or maybe even second test against everyone's number 2 team, the Windies next spring.
Elsewhere, India's new talisman, Binny, might not even make the 11 for the second test, as will he/won't he mystery move the ball specialist, Ashwin might be brought back into the team, if the pitch is as utterly useless as it was last week. However early reports from @aggerscricket suggest the pitch looks genuinely green, giving us hope that Binny might once again play a role. we have seen green pitches at Lords already this summer, for about 5 minutes before the toss in the match against Ceylon, after which the green green grass of the home of cricket quickly cooked off to pancake.
