Brilliant by India. Can't help it I detest the Aussies.

West Indies are an absolute push over in the ODIs without their big hitters.

See a bit. Maxwell and Smith batting really well. Kohli done his shoulder in fielding and was off for most of the day.

Anyone know of any clubs in the Glasgow area who'd be willing to take on someone with next to no playing experience? Was a keeper when I played football, so I can at least catch a ball. Always quite liked Cricket, and was thinking it might be a good thing to take up the sport. I'm 24 though, so not sure if that would be too old to start?

Go to Pollok mate. Your first year is half price and they have teams with varying levels of ability. You can go along to the training sessions then get involved in matches if you feel like you want to make the step up. They give everybody an opportunity and they will have equipment and kit you can use so you don't have to buy your own (except your own box/cup of course). 

If you go somewhere like Clydesdale they'll laugh at you. Other clubs are more welcoming - Pollok, Ferguslie, Prestwick, Weirs.

You have to give the Aussies massive credit for bouncing back after the humiliation of Sri Lanka and defeat by South Africa.

I pretty much wrote off the Aussies but they've proved me wrong no matter what happens in the final test against India.

Just been reading about the changes. I think the ECB need to do something to rival the IPL and BBL. The T20 blast isn't doing it. 

I think its worth a try for that reason, hopefully get more of the big hitters coming over to play in England over the summer. England is in trouble of being left behind buy the Aussies and India in terms of support for the sport.

Never seen much on the final test but seen on SSN this morning India won the series 2-1. At least the Aussies gave them a run for their money at times.
