Pakistan chased a good total down under lights last year so we cant just think its easier to bat first, but I'd have to think Indias chances of chasing a big total second are probably better than Englands.
Bit of rain around lunchtime which could mean movement early on & I've always thought the Rose Bowl to be a bit of the slow side in its brief history.
India have lots of part time slowies but no big name spinner with Powar giving hope to all fat club players everywhere
India start favourites which if you look at the WC seems strange but England arent great in this format although the WIs series will have helped Collingwood enormously.
England have the edge bowling wise I feel with the withdrawal of Sidebottom tempered by the return of Freddy. India have Agarkar to back up Khan & Singh but those 2 have already bowled a lot on this tour & Englands attack looks fresher to me. Therefore I'm tempted with the evens on England for this game. I'm backing Yuvraj in both the series & the match, & Bell as I like his price & I feel if he can see off the openers he can cash in.
In all previous ODIs here, there have never been more than 4 match 6's

I was a cricket fan years ago, but rugby took over later.

I'm considering getting into rugby. I always swore if I had a son, I'd get interested in football so I'd have something in common with them as they aged. It turns out, rugby is the sport over here, so I'll be 'pretending' to love that instead now. :D
