What nationality then?
I as an honest Indian fan beleive England stand no chance, we have Sreesanth the next Malcom Marshall, Irfan Pathan and RP Singh the next Akram.

This coming from an honest Indian fan.

Agreed. It's good to see the bowling looking good, but the batting is still a BIG worry. But they're only just off the plane, it was a warmup. So a good start to the tour.

I REALLY want to see KP and Freddy knuckle down and get some runs though. We HAVE to see more consistency in the top 6 if we are gonna really try to become world #1. If we do, I think we have every chance.

A lot of truisms there RS but i would expect someone to pour cold water on this win.
It is still a good effort to blast out a side in 25 overs though in the first match on tour.

I just wish there had been more time for the build up and a third warm up game as this would have given everyone some more precious time at the crease. Another game could have given us a more of a idea about the realistic abilities of the slow bowlers on these wickets.

Whatever happens in the next game i still feel we will be underprepared for the first test.
We beat a very average team today so all the excitement that England are back seems a little premature to me.
Far be it from me to pour cold water on all the optimism, but I'll wait until after the first test to pass jusdgement.........................

Let's wait and see eh?

As a not so honest indian fan, i only wish that the series shall not be decided by just tosses. And they shall not be so boring as we had with Pak. Indians are playing well, and hope they keep it up.
England has good chances as long as they don't listen to woolmers free advises. Who thinks that Tendulkar has probelms and the guy makes 237 runs against his team (in series).

I think you will see KP amongst the runs very soon. I am not sure FF is going to bat that well in the near future.I was most impressed with Simon Jones's first outing since last summer and it shows how much he was missed in Pakistan. I think he will have a major influence on the tour if he continues to bowl well but the Indians are an extremely good team on the own turf so we must be careful not to get complacent. Could be a very good month ahead for International cricket.

Good point, but lets look on the flip side, would the Indians have been dancing on every dead Englishmans grave had they won ?

Far be it from me to pour cold water on all the optimism, but I'll wait until after the first test to pass jusdgement.
We obviously bowled quite well, and there were promising signs with the bat (Tresco), but I think that this win should be viewed as more of a chance to get used to the conditions and pitches.
Let's wait and see eh?

I created an Account solely to reply to one of the dumbest messages that this message board has seen. I have seen some bright stuff from ozs but this one just wins the award hands down.

Just goes to show that an Average Indian Fan has an IQ of 20...(Or am i bit positive)

It worries me very much that we keep using the quicks for these matches - yes they do have to be gotten match fit, but spin is the one area where we don't know who to pick - we must give Panesar, Udal and Blackwell more of a bowl

Fletcher has the brain to formulate a plan on needs to be done to counter Indian Batting and he has the bowlers who will execute that plan to perfection. So in tests i am going to back England if..... (a Big IF actually) the english batsmen handle knumble and Harbhajan well.. If they manage to see them thro then the Indian Pacers ( a misnomer considering that most of them bowl at mid seventies) will give more than ample scoring chances. With carefully executed plan India COULD BE CONQUERED.

PS: Sreesanth the Indian Akram hardly manages to clock 85 mph

So what happened to his brain when they played in Pakistan?

Leave it at the pub in Basingstoke....?

England is going to get whipped like never before. Yes, the Ashes win was a fluke...get over it.

So were all your test wins in the past. You should admit, there aren't many (especially, outside India):-)
