Strauss to bed in. I think, in the third match, England will be at high esteem if they will able to win first or two test matches. Cricket fans hope that on the field England will show good start as Petersen is a batsman who has good partnership performance with Shah. Shah is very good hitter as he performs well to advance action and credentials for spinners. I hope that Flintoff will be fit for second and third match; it will be a great disappointment for his fans if he will sit out of these match series. But he seems confident that he will be fit early as he is an essential cog in balancing from England side.
Warm up match situations give us some hints that this tour has started with broken cable, as England receives a shock of missing Flintoff in the first test series. Cricket sports are based on chances and performances of experienced players. I think it is good strategies to catch up new players, coaching them in desired mode to make a good team. Many cricket critics think that West Indies v England- one of the classical confrontations in international test cricket that will continue up to four test matches series. Huh! Great news for cricket lovers, they do not need to wait more, February is at your door step, and first match will be started from 1st February.
