Re: Australia-India 1st test (Adelaide Oval)

All the top sides are of a similar level I think.

No team is constantly hitting 400 plus scores to stand out. Lots of decent bowling attacks and not so disciplined batsman around.

Like any team, England need the top order to fire then we can compete with any team.

Only 5 PL signings so far

Info supplied by CTs sticky thread.

17 days into the window and only 5 incomings, with only one looking like a first team starter.

Is it simply there's not much dosh about or should it have been in February this year with the late start to the season?
