Finally Cricket to Resume In India

Its final now England cricketers are coming to India for two match test series. Some people will say it may be due to the financial clout of BCCI that England is coming back so early but I feel life is much bigger than money and I salute to the cricketers that they are coming back in full strength.

ECB managing director said :
"This is a very brave and courageous decision which will be respected around the world,''

I totally agree to what he is saying, Its not easy for them after what they saw and some of them including Vaughan had a narrow escape as they were schedule to stay in Taj hotel from the next day.

Some people were saying this is not the time to play as sports are played for enthusiasm and we should be with those who have suffered, I respect this point but I feel we shouldn't let life come to a standstill and let those terrorists win, they want us to stay indoors always and life a life in which we are afraid every time.
No cricket should resume and other sports should also resume. Cricket as a sport will win in these two matches no matter who wins the series.

Successful and peaceful culmination of this series may lead to Champions League T20 being taking place in Jan.

India and England have played 97 Tests prior to the start of this series. India has won 18, lost 34, with 45 ending in a draw. I believe we may take our victory stats to 20 in the coming series.

Squad Details:
Kevin Pietersen (captain), Tim Ambrose (wkt), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook, Andrew Flintoff, Stephen Harmison, Amjad Khan, Monty Panesar, Matt Prior (wkt), Owais Shah, Andrew Strauss, Graeme Swann.
First Test: December 11-15, Chennai
Second Test: December 19-23, Mohali
