    Anyone but ...

    I can relate to most of Dileep Premachandran's thoughts. Like him, I felt a sense of revulsion when I saw England celebrate at 'The Oval' last September.

    I haven't yet read Mike Marqusee's "Anyone but England" yet though.

    Apropos of nothing, it is my firm belief that cricket is without equal among sports in its ability to produce journalists who like nothing better than to indulge in pompous social commentary.

    I dread to think of your reaction if India contrive to lose this series.

    One Sunny day does not make a summer make. Many of the matches with Australia were close and the English team was behaving as if one series win would enable them to become world beaters overnight. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    Hey, I've been saying that the series will be quite close. I'm more than happy to anoint England favourites. The two sides are quite well matched. Like Australia [and South Africa] have shown, you can win in India even without having an awesome spin bowling lineup. England have the fast bowling resources to rattle India. They have batsmen with experience. India have not yet sorted out Sehwag's opening partner & who replaces Yuvraj in the middle-order for the first test. So regardless of my not liking England, while I do hope that the series will be won 2-0 [or better] by India, I won't over-react in case India do lose the series.

    Shocking to read such opinions on cricinfo. England beat Aus and thats the reality. Accept it or don't, its not going to change anything.

    If we want to make a point about England, we must make it on the cricket field. Use whatever inspiration you want from our history, geography, economics, sociology, anthropology whatever...but beat them on the field.

    Thats what matters

    Else stop writing such articles.

    Srini - No one is in denial of England's victory, except perhaps Australia.
