My predictions have been a bit off lately!! But...


Have a chat to David (Citizen of the World) and he'll regale you with a catalogue of failed sporting predications. However back last year I said that Alistair Cook should have replaced Andrew Strauss instead of Paul Collingwood on the tour to Pakistan.

Having said that Cook's century this morning against a decent Indian attack (and importantly on foreign soil - moreover sub-continental foreign soil)was the second of the match following Collingwood's NO 134 in the first innings and considering Collingwood's form in Pakistan, maybe I'm not the next Duncan Fletcher.

Anyway well done that boy, he's destined for great things and really starts to make our top 6 look competitive.

I was worried when Cook was out LB to Pathan in the second innings- when he played for the outswinger and it came back in. The commentators compared him to Nick Night, saying that the way his head fell across was a potential weakness which the two shared.

It's obviously to early to tell, though. IMO, he simply was expecting an inswinger.
