The Empire Flies Back

The English cricket team to India had come with a lot of fanfare and the cricket loving crowds were expecting a keenly contested series.One week into the tour and the Englishmen have turned turtle without a ball being balled.Half the team is on the injury list.Skipper Vaughan is out,Trescothick is home,Simon Jones is injured(whats new??) ,and if rumours are true even Duncan Fletcher is not well.Well two things come out from this ,one - How in the name of Christ could England send such an unfit squad and two,we are in for another "Brown wash" .I am betting my last ruppee that England will lose 3 - 0 .I am waiting for the series to begin and see the Indian batsmen wallop the English attack and our spin twins wreck havoc in their batting line up.This series will see India lay claim to be the true challengers to the Untouchable Aussies.The only good thing about the Poms is that my favourite player Andrew Flintoff gets to lead the side for the first time. Way to go Freddie!!!!!

Trescothick went home because of family troubles, not because he is unfit. Vaughan was thought to be fit. Jones had an injury in warm up which is just poor luck. As for 3-0, looks like the first test will be a draw by now. Everyone has scored so slowly....
