    depending on the pitch and if harris can get his act together then I will go with 2 spinners. I am not sure if the selectors see duminy as a spinner yet.

    dunno about you all, but I am not a McLaren fan, he is as much a good all-rounder as Flintoff.

    Not surprising. You need two spinners for a sub continent tour. But unless we get a really poor pitch they will probably only play harris with duminy as the second spin option. But if india are 1-0 expect a massive turner at eden gardens.

    I expect only chance for the 1st test barring injuries is harris in place of mcclaren.

    Would have liked to see someone like rossouw or vandiar pick to go as an extra batsmen to gain some experience of touring a place like india.

    I'll put my cock on the block right now and say Harris is going to smacked all over the place in India if and when he plays...

    Was it a coincidence that the test we finally win against England was with an all pace attack? Duminy is more than capable of bowling a bit of spin on day 5 but Harris in India is going to get pummeled...

    not so sure, the Indians usually make their pitch turn that extra bit when we have good seamers,

    Noticed something about the odi side which is an absolute horrific decision by the selectors. Amla has been dropped in the odi squad for bosman. No offence to loots and his fans but the man hasn't done a thing in the pro 40 while hashim has averages 45 in odi cricket and was one of our best batsmen vs england in the odi series. No problems with gibbs being back in, he has been superb for the cobras in the pro40 and deserves getting back in.

    And I'll quote this just so you can't remove it!

    But please can we define what "smacked all over the place" means so that you cannot get out of this. Give us a runs per over figure to work with. Also once your cock is on that block what action are you going to allow to take place? Putting your cock on a block is not daring in itself.
