It'll be difficult because of the conditions and because India are playing at home. The pitches are tailor-made for guys like Harbhajan and Kumble so the absence of Giles is a worry but perhaps Panesar will grab his chance with both hands.

I'm not confident for England's chances but who knows?

Vaughan and Trescothick definitely out of the first Test, which means Flintoff will get the captaincy.

Yuvraj is out for India, which is defintely a blow, but they haven't got the problems England have.

And may I just say I find all the Gangu-love a bit perplexing. He's only posted moderate scores in Pakistan and he destabilises the team because quite frankly he's nothing but a prima donna.

England 393 all out, that looks pretty good after 246-7.

India are 136-1 at the end of day 2 though. lets hope for some early wickets on day 3.

I was quite disappointed Dhoni didn't stay long though.

Good day's work for England, especially after breaking that mammoth partnership between Kaif and Kumble.
