India Vs England : The much awaited cricket series

The England versus India Test series is without a doubt the most awaited series this year.  And the high profile series has all the necessary things to make it a cracker of a contest.

100th century?
  • For starters it’s another chance (maybe his last) for Sachin Tendulkar to finally get his name up there at Lords by scoring a century.  So during the Lord’s test if Sachin is in the 90s, you can expect the entire world to stop and watch the proceedings.
  • Another reason would be that India – the number one team will be taking on their colonial masters in their backyard hoping to prove to the world that they are indeed the World Champions.
  • Also there is the celebration of the highest form of cricket – Test cricket as the 2000th Test will be played in the series.
  • Watching how the Indian batsmen tackle the English pace attack on green tops with bounce and overcast conditions is something everyone will be looking out for.
  • And finally watching the Indian bowlers go about their business will be interesting to watch. They struggled against Somerset at Taunton, picking only three wickets in the first innings.  This is a certain worry.  Watching how over-weight players such as Sreesanth go about their business would indeed be interesting to say the least.  The pacer’s belly looks more lethal and likely to pick up wickets!
Sree and his belly!

So with all these reasons and tons more, the series is sure to be great!  I so can’t wait for 21st, when the series kicks off!
