England all out for 0

A fictitious account of how the England cricket team plans to honour its agreement to play the two-Test series in India.

It's thought that this will entail England allowing themselves to be bowled out for 0, in order to give the hosts a chance to wrap up victory inside the first morning.

Go here to read the rest.

You are correct, it hasn't rained this month.

It is raining today... though I think it will clear up before the match but I wonder if the teams will be able to practice before then. I too am wary of taking a day off from work for this reason - lest it is followed by a pink slip :)

RS,

It looks like rain is going to have the last laugh. A truncated match is on the cards.

The pink slip. :)

Yuvraj recalled in the test team

I'm so glad Yuvraj Singh has been recalled in the test team! He's been a dynamite in the ODIs and is in great shape. He sure will get himself a permanent place in the Indian test team. I'm no selector on the board but in my fantasy cricket team Yuvi will always have a place for sure. I played the India England ODIs on Indian Fantasy League and did well – Yuvi did not let me down and I hope for the same in the India England test matches!
