A chance for any russian primadonnas to go and see the GOAT doing what he does best - especially if they are not doing anything else during wimbledon finals....

Sehwag had to find a way to England in case India needs him I see.

I imagine Finch and Read must be fairly excited to be part of that team.

Will be great if we could see Sachin and Lara together at the crease.
And Warne and Murali bowling from two ends.

I expect ROW to win this easily. They have the much better side, though MCC has Chanderpaul.

I see Tamim Iqbal in the ROW side.
That's one smart way of getting the large number of Bangladeshis in England interested.

Could've got a Saffer in there too. Seems to be the only country missing out.
Maybe Ntini in place of Tino Best.

Ajmal is spoiling the fun by taking too many wickets. :-)
Sachin should just remove him from the attack. For now.
Let the score at least get to 150 or so.

Lee just made Cook the happiest man in this world.

Maybe Warne should have worn long slevees for some extra protection.


Lee has been known to bowl intentional beamers maybe that was one too.

293/7 then. Very good score, thanks to Yuvi. Decent support from Collingwood and Siddle.

Dravid took a sharp catch in the slips. Was really good to watch. :-)

his lateral direction is ok, not so much the vertical direction
Tait is the opposite

no surprise this match was dominated by current players

just shows the level of drop off when even great players retire
