You mean no one wants to see the Manchester Indians?
What about

 Royal Challengers Brighton (& Hove)?
You forgot the chennai super birmingham bears

also the row over expenses continues as the BCCI cannot pay the pilot to transfer the England team around the venues and have made made a formal request one of our players, thought  to be Adil Rashid flys the plane.

the ECB have rejected this request saying they cannot possibly predict where they would land.

Com'on, Adil at least lands most of the deliveries when compared to Imran Tahir (in tests)

Jimmy A ok for the second test which is great news if you support England!

The wickets might not be ideal but we need his quality and experience...

Wonder if we will go with four seamers and just two spinners for most of the series.
I would rest Anderson, and go with Woakes, Ball, Adil, Moeen, Ansari, Stokes. Call Jimmy, if the quicks fail.

having seen Steyn break down in the SA match with a shoulder problem, im sure England will be making sure Jimmy is def 100 per cent fit before clearing him to play

bowlers his age could be just one injury away from retirement

as for Imran Tahir, he does bowl some buffet stuff...BUT has the uncanny habit of picking up hatfuls of wickets sometimes!!!    as his wicket celebrations are fantastically silly

Looks like Sam Billings has joined up with the squad, nothing 100% official but it looks like him in this picture they've tweeted with the caption 'Who's hiding behind the medicine ball?'...

Never seen a pitch in Rajkot with so many cracks on it before the match has even started...
