Just read that Michael Vaughn has written in the telegraph that England should call Sam billings, now for me it's not a bad call I just don't think it's the right time!! We have a squad that can win in India! It just needs the correct selection (hammeed at 2, duckett at 4) however I'm not sure that will happen. I will be cheering on and supporting whoever walks out for the first test with the 3 lions in their chest no matter who that is!!

Is Billings represented by whatever agency Vaughan is involved with? Ah.

Interesting this from Duckett on twitter - getting very mixed reaction!

One guy said a few more Ben's should be selected for India - I'm available ;)

Well said.Vaughan has an agenda for everything he writes or says in the media.
Yes yes i cried(with joy) in 2005 when the bails were removed at the Oval.
But...
2005 in the past

And....what captain would not give for the attack we had then?

FYI Bell has played 8 Tests in India, averaging 27.

It didn't take Piers Morgan long to shove his tongue up Duckett's starfish either, irritatingly he replied.

Fair play to Duckett for backing himself, you just hope it doesn't come back to bit him

I really don't think we'll do that badly in India. That team that was nearly the best in the world a few months ago hasn't disappeared overnight- it certainly won't be 5-0. We just need top order batsmen to score runs. Cook had a great tour of India last time around.

Are you sure? I'm not saying it is going to be 5-0 but 3-0 or 4-0 seem pretty likely. I don't think Kohli and Rahane et al are that worried about our spinners and I think Mr. Ashwin and his buddies are licking their lips at bowling to our boys. I hope that the English lads prove me wrong but I really fear the worst  :(

Don't think India's batting line up is as good as people think. NZ pushed them all the way and on a number of occasions they were in trouble.

we do need Anderson thou, I know some on here think he is only good on green seamers but he has bowled well last time out there and in UAE. basically he is class and that's the commodity we are short of.

We will need Broad fit and firing too......

batting wise is tricky now.

Of the choices available Balance out of the firing line and I think England will gamble on Butler at number 7 maybe...

I'd rather have Jeetan Patel than any of our spinners to be fair.
