BCCI tour of England 2018

Postby raja » Wed Jan 31, 2018 6:33 am

I know the tour is stil some months away but if there's news that affects the tour, worth having one thread for it.

Here is news that Pujara will prepare for the tour by playing county cricket for Yorkshire.
He was unsold at the IPL anyway, so he has plenty of time to prepare for England.

I've a feeling BCCI will do well this time.
Main reason being the Test series starts only on 1st Aug.
That is proper summer in England, the wicket should be batsman-friendly.
Had they played in May-June, chance of rain & pitch assisting swing would be much higher.

Good chance for Kohli to repair his reputation of not getting runs in England.

We’re still scraping ice off our cars in the mornings here. I can’t even remember what summer is like. :(

Weather is the biggest unpredictable in England, according to my dad.

here in USA it snowed in freaking texas and other goddamned southern states. Florida saw record lows for decades. My friend went on a bahamas cruise and he was really mad that he could not even step out on the ship deck for the entire cruise WTF.
