Default India tour of England 2011

Sports
Friday, June 24, 2011Sports
India announce Test squad for England July 2
Pti, Mumbai

The Indian squad for the four-Test series against England, which is the first part of their forthcoming tour, will be picked on July 2, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sources said on Thursday.

"The squad would be picked in Chennai on July 2," BCCI sources told this news agency.

Incidentally, July 2 is the last day of the scheduled second India-West Indies Test in the current series and would be played at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Two members -- Surendra Bhave and Narendra Hirwani -- of the five-man selection committee, headed by Krish Srikkanth, are currently in the West Indies watching the Test series and are expected to join the discussions via tele-conference along with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and coach Duncan Fletcher.

The Indians conclude their visit to the Caribbean with the third and final Test scheduled at Roseau from July 6-10.

Quite a few key members of the Indian team that won the World Cup on April 2 are missing from the touring party in the West Indies.

'England are ready for India' - Boycott

Andrew Miller in Southampton

June 21, 2011
Comments: 187 | Login via | Text size: A | A


Geoffrey Boycott believes England are ready for the challenge of taking on India, the world's No. 1 Test team, who arrive in the country next month for the start of a four-Test series. Speaking to ESPNcricinfo after the third Test against Sri Lanka had finished as a draw, Boycott said the form of captain Andrew Strauss was the only major concern in a side that was otherwise brimful of confidence, and added the height, pace and accuracy of Chris Tremlett was sure to provide India's batsmen with a formidable challenge.

"I think we're ready for India," Boycott said. "England are in a good position. Everyone but Strauss is playing well, so unless we get serious injuries, we're ready. Strauss's place is not in jeopardy. He's the captain, and he's got a terrific record. But he needs to get runs in the middle because he didn't get any against Sri Lanka."

though this will be interesting, i think England will be in for a full fight. India's batting is far superior to Sri Lanka's, and their bowling is stronger too. England did win a match against Sri Lanka, but they have to do far better to win against India.

Indian batting line up doesn't have much to prove, but it will be interesting to see if they can dominate England in all departments.

anticipating a very exciting series.

Without Tendu, I don't think so. Laxman's time is up. UV is not suited for this form anyways. Dhoni is being exposed at WI.

Tendulkar is not playing? Still, lets compare both batting line ups (India & Sri Lanka)

Sri Lanka in my eyes have 4 very good/good batsmen (Dilshan, Jayawardene, Sangakkara, Samaraweera) , plus other potential batters.

India's full strength batting line up boasts 6 great/very good/good batsmen (Sehwag, Gambhir, Tendulkar, Laxman, Dravid, Dhoni) plus potential batters like (one of these guys) Yuvraj, Raina, Murali Vijay.

if India does not play their full strength, or half of it is missing, the back up people are still better than the potential batters of Sri Lanka. That is why unless the conditions favor England overwhelmingly, we will have the Indian Batters dominate most of proceedings.

In England it won't be so easy for India. We could see the great batting line up in West India in first Test. Their batting couldn't do better. Even they couldn't win unless WIndies bating do a little better or Rahul Dravid didn't stand second innings.

On the other hand English batting is far better than West India. Even bowling also better and condition won't favoure to India.

I hate both these teams, and I hope at least one player on both sides get injured. Then they'll both use that excuse if they lose.

England batting line is not much less than India. With Cook, KP, Strauss, Trott, Bell their batting line up is strong enough to cause some serious problem for India. But over all India has the batting advantage, while England has the bowling advantage. It should be a good fight.

Strauss has a weakness against left arm fast (well, anything 75 mph+) bowling. Zaheer Khan is the world's best left armer.. Zaheer + Swing = -strauss

Trott and Cook are extremely slow, they will kill the pace of the england innings.

England doesn't have any weakness this time. Look at the average of their top 6/7 batsmen.
Their bowling is very strong. Tremlett and Anderson are in good form.

Well it does make a difference between winning and drawing. Against Sri Lanka in the 3rd test, they couldn't up the tempo.

Well its better then getting out cheaply. True they shouldve upped the tempo that match but that's the way England is.

Well, they scored 377 at 4.06 runs per over in the 3rd test, which is very fast in test match cricket. For comparison, Sri Lanka scored at 2.86 rpo in the first innings and 3.21 in the second.

Also, in the last 3 years England have scored at 3.48 rpo in all test matches, which is 2nd only to Sri Lanka's 3.56.

England's goal is to be the N01 test team in the world and i am sure that they are capable of achieving this by the end of 2012.
