It’s not that we’ve got nothing to say ahead of the Kolkata Test, it’s that we’ve already previewed the match.
You want more than that? You want something timely? Okay, how about whether Steven Finn should play? We’d say that if he’s fit, he should play, because Stuart Broad seems to have turned into England’s “go-from guy”.
That’s not a very exciting opinion, is it? That’s what everyone’s saying. How about if we argued against it by talking about the length of England’s tail?
Well, we don’t really want to do that, because we tend to think that these lower-order pseudo-batsmen aren’t going to get any runs against spinners anyway. England’s lower order ‘batsmen’ are only really good for runs in familiar conditions or when it’s flat and if it’s the latter, they shouldn’t really be needed anyway.
Please take up the slack today and leave interesting comments. The force isn’t with us today.
