Breaking/Brief news

    Bye bye, Australia. Welcome, England!

    It is an indicator of how much gap there is between most tours nowadays that Australia & India, who've just finished a series, start off on new campaigns against New Zealand and England with just about enough time to catch their collective breaths.

    England & India play 7 ODIs and 2 tests while Australia & New Zealand play 2 tests, 6 ODIs and 1 T20 game. England actually landed in India 4-5 days ago, but it was almost as though they sneaked in through the backdoor. No one really registered their presence, what with the India-Australia series reaching the finale at Nagpur.

    After being thrashed by a Mumbai second XI, people will now register their presence. In 2006, the last time England played a one-day series in India, they were thrashed.

    Now, they're playing under a new captain who wants his side to play aggressive cricket. The quick bowling department, with Harmison, Broad, Anderson, Flintoff & Sidebottom, looks good. The batting though looks frail, with far too much hinging on Pietersen, Flintoff & Collingwood.

    What will the result be this time around? Vote in the poll!

    My first task will be to bring the current Micro Mentor website into the 21st Century with cutting-edge interactive technologies like social networking and user-generated content. Think of it as a cross between Linked In,, and focused on pairing thousands of emerging business owners with successful entrepreneurs from communities across the United States.
