India v England ODI/T20 Matches
« on: January 09, 2017, 01:56:29 AM »

It seems to have been a long break since the Indians showed how to bat and bowl well in the Test series on their home wickets - hopefully a lesson learned!!

And next week the shorter formats start. We all know that India are going to be strong on their home wickets with the amount of talent they have.
Interesting to see how we get on in these formats! Any predictions?

Think the ODI's will be a lot closer than the tests, depends on which England turn up but I think we have a chance

Not really got much interest in the limited over stuff but read India have called up some 19 year old for the T20s dubbed the new Sehwag so should be interesting to see what all the hypes about.

we are going to need to play spin very well to get anywhere. we seemed to be getting better in the Bangladesh series, players like Stokes(especially) looked like they were more comfortable.

Hales I don't think will have a Scooby but Butler,Stokes,Morgan are getting better

Jason Roy not sure he's faced pace most of the time, a good test for him.

I just hope we compete in some games. It's gonna be tough.

I think it's pretty even if England get the team right

I know we can only have 11 on the pitch but somewhere this series we have to have a proper look at Billings

this guy is very highly rated and has been around the squads for a while now.

I would even unbalanced the side to get him in if necessarily, i.e. leave a bowler out we know about(willey)

ICC mini world cup here this summer we need to go into that with our very best players. Might be some tough calls with the amount of good one day guys we have

I feel bad for Billings, he's a quality white ball player, needs to bat top 6 though so who do you drop out of Hales/Roy/Root/Morgan/Buttler/Stokes?

Isn't Billings labeled as being our best player of spin?
If that's the case surely he has to play, doesn't he?

I know.....as I said you might need to unbalance the team just to get a look at him. if we left out a bowler he could be shoe horned in and one of the others drops down.

we got to be looking to win this tournament in the summer over here. we were a fag paper away from our first one day trophy in the T20 last year.

anyone old enough......me......went thru the whole of the 90's watching us play some very average cricket. We had a good side 1987 world cup and 1992 world cup-apart from that the cupboard has been bare.

we got to nail it now with the new young guns.

If billings is the real deal we got to get him in somehow, at the moment we don't know.

I don't have an issue with Billings opening but you'd be dropping Hales purely due to missing the Bangladesh tour (he hit 171 3 games ago) which I don't think the selectors will do.
