The England Tour

England will tour India for their brief two match Test series. This is great news for England, England fans, and most importantly, India. Britney Spears is even getting in on the action by donating her big, burly bodyguards. There is Christmas spirit after all.

The only downside is that England will most definitely lose. And on top of that, will lose badly. But this is not the point about these games. These games now represent defiance, stiff upper lip syndrome and comradery.

So, when Thursday comes and England are out for 100 and India have posted 1693-3, fans can remind themselves that cricket is more than just a game and it's about more than just winning (or in England's case losing).

Nightwatchgirl has one more thing to add: cricket rules all.
