England have the best allrounder and the best bowler in the world. I'd also much rather have Geriant Jones to Parthiv Patel.
India will win - it's a no brainer.
And by the way "munna", India don't match fix. I believe that was some Pakistani fans' lame excuse when India beat earlier this year
I neva said that they did it last time. I said they might do it this time as they wouldnt wanna disappoint indian fans on their home ground. We all know how indian cricket fans act like babies when their team is not winning, they start throwing tantrums. This match is held on an important occasion in INDIAN CRICKET so it might be decided. Its also known as friendship fixing.
Get a grip Pakistan can't win, they just don't have the team, India beat them in both the Test and ODI series in Pakistan. No hard feelings though!
Hash: Finally someone talks sense. Btw even though England did win, the number of times Australia have thrashed them over the last few years doesnt make up for it!
Alex H:Well Harmisson is 'currently' ranked 1st, but that doesnt mean he IS the best, im sure most people would say McGrath, Pollock, Gillespie (just fast bowlers) etc, are better.
And is that all you can come up with?? Geriant Jones, is just the wicket keeper and doesnt even add much to the team.
England have in my honest opinion:
Trescothick & Strauss - exciting an profitible opening pair.
Butcher - Solid number 3. Averages over 45 in last 3 years.
Vaughan - World Class player and top captain
Thorpe - World class
Flintoff - Number 1 allrounder in the world at the current time without a doubt.
Jones - Promising Batting wicketkeeper. Needs to improve his glovework. Averages 100 partnerships with Flintoff for the 6th wicket.
Giles - OK spin bowler and has become a bit of allrounder with much improved batting
Hoggard - Has come on leeps and bounds in the last 12 months. Great hat rick in WI and his batting has improved
ANOTHER BOWLER - In my view this is Englands weakness. They mess around with Anderson and Jones but need another quality seamer to challenge for the Ashes.
Harmison - Top quality bowler. Currently number 1 in the world in the rankings and in the top 5 anyway
Also John ,what is your love of India and apparant dislike of England. I presume your English so get behind the English team! Its the best team we've had in a while and they need your support!
Anyway hampshire derby tomorrow.....wooooo! Time for pompey to get that battering
Here's hoping they'll NEVER do this at Fratton Park.
Although I am slightly bemused that pompey are not in that list as I dfinitely think we're relegation contenders! (due to our unbelieveably CRAP away record).
WBA. Norwich and Blackburn
To the Indian fans who were certain of their victory - think twice when you open your mouth (or let your fingers flow) next time! sure, there was a while when it seemed like a close match, but it was a strong finish for the pakistanis. well, at least you can say that it was definitely not match-fixed!(the 'friendship fixing' that munna was on about.)
To the football fans - you're on the wrong thread, silly!
