Borde has been watching TV

Apparently, as part of his preparation for the tour of England, Chandu Borde has been watching the England Vs West Indies Test matches on TV and making some notes.

Great. There is hope after all! 🙂

He has observed that the ball is “swinging quite a lot”. I think we will win with timely insights like this! He thinks Kevin Pietersen and Paul Collingwood are good. He has been “following them on TV for a long time”. He has even taken the trouble, amidst his busy schedule, of making “some notes on them”. And the best insight that he has obtained is that “Andrew Strauss is also not a bad batsmen, although he’s had a lean patch of late.” And, in his view, Michael Vaughan is “injury-prone and thus susceptible to scoring less.”

Forget doing well in England. With these superb pearls of wisdom, the series is already in the bag guys!

What Ford Gate controversy? Bring it on, I say 🙂
