    TV coverage of this tour will be sorted out tomorow with it being more likely that the series won't be on Sky but will be on pay per view tv instead. Negotiations between Nimbus who have the rights to the series in India and Sky ended at the weekend.

    Pity that would have liked to follow this series, with all Indian series being on PPV would have made a change to get to see them live.
     
  4. It's going to be on PPV? Nightmare!

    Well it's not been confirmed yet but it's looking that way, would have liked to see this after missing the Pakistan series.
     
  6. You didn't miss much in Pakistan!

    Yeah the only thing England really did that was spectacular was Trescothick's 193.

    Still no news on the tv situation, Nimbus say they have concluded their dealings but aren't offering any specifics.

    Read an article on the Times site which said it was likely that Sky would still get the rights, don't know what's going on.

    Hadn't realised as well that in the past tv deals were yet to be sorted right up until the day before the series started so nothing new here in that regard then.

    So the series will be on Sky but in addition to that all future Indian series up till 2009 will also be shown live on Sky after they agreed a deal with Nimbus

    More problems for England ahead of the first test, apart from losing their warm up game, and the numerous injury problems now Marcus Trescothick has pulled out of the tour due to family reasons, no other reasons have emerged just yet but with Vaughan a possibility to miss out with his knee injury, Andrew Flintoff could captain England in Nagpur.

    turning into a farce now first Giles cant play then Trescothik goes home for 'personal reasons' now Vaughan and Simon Jones are going home with injuries and could miss the whole series!

    There are also doubts over Pietersen and Collingwood with their bad backs, and stand in captain Flintoff is gonna miss the last test for family reasons so god knows what the team will look like by then. :wall:

    I hope England get there **** together before the ashes

    I wanna see a competitive series next summer, along with the world cup its all that cricket has left........ the rest is rather boring.

    Yeah, we really are buggered up in India at the moment. Still hopefully young Ali Cook from Essex will get to have a go.

    I've watched hm a few times at Chelmsford and he has impressed me, I hope he gets a go.

    Flintoff has decided to stay for the entire test series, he said he'd stay and that he'll go back to England and see the family in between the test and ODI series.

    well thats a relief but on those wickets its still gonna be a whitewash epecially with our best player of spin gone (trescothick) and strauss in awful form too
     
  16. An Tarbh

    An Tarbh Guest

    and if Flintoff's form suffers under the burden of captaincy then you could be in more trouble.

    England won the toss and decided to bat and are 89-2 at lunch on day 1.

    Strauss the first to go for 28 after racing to a 50 partnership with Cook, who has started really well and remains unbeaten on 44. Dravid took a good catch to dismiss Bell cheaply enough giving Harbajan his first wicket.

    Turning into a good day for the Indians after they picked up another 2 wickets in the afternoon session, currently 157-4 with Flintoff and Collingwood at the crease, Flintoff lucky with a couple of edges finding the gaps. Sreesnath could be in trouble though, been warned twice for running on the wicket.

    Would also be nice if we could get the pictures for the whole final session as well.

    Are you watching it An Tarbh? Just seen Jones given out LBW and i swear it hit the middle of his bat no pad at all! must need my eyes testing

    Didn't see a problem with Jones' dismissal, thought Flintoff was unlucky as it didn't look like it was hitting the stumps. Now Blackwell's gone, playing on, England in serious trouble.

    yeah fair enough just seen a close up replay, but flintoff definately unlucky sliding down the legside, the rest of them have just got themelves out rather than good bowling getting them out
