Ind-Eng India has the upper hand(-worma)

India gained the upper hand on the first day of the test against the English squad coming fresh from their Ashes success. Yes, its women's cricket, but still a significant news...since Eng women's team is on a high.

And sorry for taking you for a ride with the headline :-)

  • btw guys in india, please watch fair and lovely 4th umpire. its the best anyalys i hv ever seen in my life. they have very good knowledge of the game. the panel comprises of charu, srikant,mohinder amarnath and wasssn.
    its a top class tv program and worth watching. starts abt 90 mins before the match

  • sgbw....hope this is not some kind of a joke....Atul Wassan is out to speak diametrically opposite to what Srikkanth says and Jimmy speaks in support of Srikkanth and in between all this, Charu Sharma comes out with some nonsensical statements....Not worth the time.Wld anyday prefer Sunny,Harsha,Boycott and Shahstri(inspite of his tilt towards Agarkar)

  • Charu, Srikkanth, Amarnath and Wassan? Oh, no! Ek se badkar ek!

  • Way to go ladies. I wish people actually bothered more about the women's game in India. I'm sure the ladies could make us all proud with some good performances. And I think it would be terrific for young Indian girls to have more sporting heroes to look upto. Maybe then, the stereotype that sports is solely a man's domain will be removed.

  • Poised, I'd say. India marginally haead.

    Have any of you guys ever been to see a Women's Test Match? My better half and I went a couple of years ago to see England Women v SA Women.

    The cricket was unexciting, but a beautiful sunny day and picinic at Shenley is memorable with or without exciting cricket.

    We'll go again if the women get a sensible ground for us, but if you think England v India itineraries go to obscure places in India, just see the itineraries for the women in England. ;-))

  • and in India its not even marketed properly! Its tough to know the schedules in advance.

    Atleast in England you're giving them some of the due credit...weren't the women's team part of the Ashes victory parade? Our team came back from the World Cup as runners up...and nothing of note happened here!

    Btw..about the standard of cricket..atleast I followed scores of some of the WC matches...seemed to be interesting enough. Watching one on the ground may be a diff issue...but I would definitely try to watch one in England next summer. Any idea of the schedule, who're they playing?

  • Took some rummaging - it's England v India - would you believe it!!

    Some attractive venues in there, including Shenley again for a WODI.

    Daisy and I might well take an August day off to see one of those - Lord's or Shenley probably. I'll have to ask her indoors later.

  • Or perhaps you want to challenge the itinerary.

    Derby?

    Leicester??

    Tauton???

    What an insult.

    ;-))

  • ged: LOL...I had a inkling that it might be India...kind of return tour. But atleast we are playing 2 tests instead of the 'one-off' here in India.

    And there's Lords also mate...why're you cribbing :-)...I thought it was the prerogative of the tourists to complain about venue. Lets see...so which was is not 'touristy' enough? ;-)

    But thx for the details...I guess I might plan something as well. August is far off though.
