It's time for Revenge.....

This time Diwali is going to be special as India vs England Test Series is going to start from 15th November. Every Indian still remembers the defeat of the Indian Team last year in England. After winning the ODI world cup, Team India was looking to be No.1 in Tests also but England defeated India 4-0 in the 4 match test series. But that defeat was on English soil with Team India not being able to handle the English pacers very well.

Now England have come to India to play a 4 match Test Series. English Team are well known for not playing the Spinners well. In India were most pitches are spin friendly and with quality spinners in the Indian team it's not going to be easy for England team to emerge victorious on Indian Soil. Meanwhile, a controversy is also going on that BCCI and Selection Committee have not picked any Spinner for practice matches that England play before the all important test series. I completely agree to the fact to not allow any spin practice to the England Team because whenever Team India tour's abroad we see only fast bowler's and bouncy pitches for Practice games. So, It's all fair to not allow them any spin practice.

New Selection Committee has also picked the test team and it's very nice to see Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh back in the Squad. Ishant Sharma is also back and he should prove his talent in this series after coming back from an injury. So let's see what happens when the action starts. England team will have to rely on Kevin Pietersen as he plays spin really well. Indian Team have got good spinners and most importantly the support of the Home Crowd.
