ENG v IND Test Series

Post by Frank Costanza »

Cracking series so far.
I immensely dislike both teams equally but there's been some great test cricket over the first 3 tests.
Kohli clearly the best batsman in the world but with conditions favouring the England bowlers it's making for a great series.

Test cricket isn't dead

has been a great series, If you drop so many catches though, you can't win a test as England found out in this one.

2-1 up, 1 to play.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

IMO opinion the commentators are brilliant as well, great coverage.

India continue their pathetic away record, but well done to England

4-1 is going to flatter England, India have played well. 3-2 would actually be about right.

Either way, England ashes odds will be shortened. I actually think the poms will do us easily next time and India will give us a decent run on our decks too.

Of course you didn't, you had David Wagner's "tape" then.

Who's Wagner? Tape? Haven't you enough straws to cling on to?

4-0 is 4-0 - its a belting.

Worry about the return series next year (which I think you'll probably reverse that score)

Wagner, I think he's David Warner's pseudonym. He uses it now as he made a mockery of the other name.

Come on, it's pretty obvious that it didn't just suddenly happen in that one test in s africa.

Really? You assuming again? Better off looking at other captains/teams as well that where there was actually evidence of ball tampering.

I'm sure he just can't afford to buy sugar, that's why he was loading it into his pockets. :lol:

Oh and today, Anderson should go past McGrath as well as the leading fast bowler.

It was a type of salt - helps with cleaning the whites apparently (so the cleaning lady said).

To be fair, the cleaning lady probably has more integrity that the australian cricket team.

She could have probably hit a few runs against your bowling attack too.

Do you mean the 4th= (until about 12pm GMT) and 8th leading wicket takers of all time?

Maybe you should stop doctoring all your pitches to not do anything except bounce.

So you don't want the ball to bounce? That's absurd. We tried a grubber once and all hell broke loose!
