All set to go! [#281]

Injury hit English will face off a tough and pumped up Indian squad. England has not won a series yet in India for past 2 decades now. Indian team has many new faces, Yuvraj out injured hence Raina might get a test birth. And well! I feel he deserves it.

Bottom line, India has a formidable batting line up; I would be real challenge to deal Harbajan Singh and Anil Kumble at home. With Dravid hinting to have a young guns picket, I feel we have enough fire power to win the game, my only concern area is our pace attack, this is very unpredictable until the first over; hey! On the other hand, if Baji or Piyush or Kumble could do the trick, pacers task would be limited to cast the new ball “old”. Having said this, I don’t want prefer to underestimate the English team, underdogs usually rise to the occasion. So Dravid is still on the pressure stand. Except in Pakistan, England has been playing good cricket for past 12 months. If the current second fiddle English team could beat India, I would consider their effort to be bigger than their recent hyped ashes victory. Players to watch out: Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla and Middle order Batsmen Suresh Raina. Mostly Wasim Jaffer would open with Viru.

Dish Network’s program guide displays India England Tie! Hence we do have a live coverage via Dish Network. The cost is still a mystery. Anything more than $100-$125, I would think twice before ordering it. Usually the first day's play is offered free, so make sure you tune in tonight [457/461], who knows we might get a see a Viru bashing for free;

Good day!
