India v England 4th Test

You's know the rules, pick 5 players, most points win..

1 run = 1 point
1 wicket = 25 points
1 catch = 5 points
Runout / Stumping = 25 points

Pick one player who gets double points.

This will be a tough one.. I have a feeling the batsmen will run riot on a road but could be wrong..

So many injuries have affected selection this series.

Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar (had to prove fitness in first class), Rahul, Saha

Hameed, Anderson, Woakes, Broad

Might have missed a few out too.

To be fair when was the last decent Indian pace bowler? Zaheer Khan? And he averages over 32 with a strike rate of 60. And in India his average was 35! So that leaves touring pacers to get the wickets and who in the last 20 years has decent returns in India as a fast Bowler?

Walsh has good stats, 7 matches and a bowling average of 18. Bob Willis averaged 22 over 10 tests. But they're both way way down the list of most wickets taken in India.

Weird to see that Warne averaged 43 with the ball in India.

What a piss poor showing, only 5 participants.

Disapointing is a understatement.
