GLASGOW SUFFER FROM WIND - RENNIES ALL ROUND ON MONDAY
First things first. My first sighting of a Glasgow Warriors supporter on Sunday was a Scot wearing a kilt. My sister in Scotland is passionately proud of our Highland heritage, and her wardrobe includes no fewer than three versions of the many, nine or ten, variants of the Gordon clan septs, as the tartan patterns are correctly called. One of her plaids is Dress Gordon. So, when I saw a Scotsman wearing the pattern, I said “Nice to see the Dress Gordon.” Cue misunderstanding and a cold weather front, because he heard me say “Nice to see the dress, Gordon.” Not to worry, I escaped the dreaded Glasgow Kiss, and moved swiftly on to see the end of the warm-up drills.
Well, in the end it was a win, and, come the end of the season that is all that will have mattered.
Ajinkya Rahane to Lead India A versus England Lions
Good to see BCCI investing in the future of Indian cricket, not just making oodles of money from it. Last year they sent 44 players to England, they also sent the A team to NZ ahead of the Australia tour, and now they are hosting the England A team, i.e. the England Lions. The importance given to domestic cricket by not picking players from teams in Ranji semi-finals... is also very heartening. The influence of Rahul Dravid can be sensed here. Indian cricket since he has taken charge of the India A and Under 19 teams seems to be brimming with talent. The talent, probably always existed, but now it has proper structure and guidance to flourish.
Player Ratings MotM Rambo Muscles Chelsea Aside
Great win. Lots of chances, pressing and intensity in the first half. Managed the second half well. Really happy with that clean sheet. Looked much more like ourselves. Let's hope we can push on.
Another Derby Shocker
How very appropriate that the team that fielded two proper strikers scored two goals while the team that played no genuine centre forwards scored no goals. Although Chelsea 'enjoyed' an abundance of possession, they typically looked incapable of scoring a solitary goal against Arsenic. I hate this team right now and the people who are ruining the club with their awful recruitment policy. On the field, Chelsea are clueless in the final third. This is the same club that boasted Flo, Hughes, Vialli, and Zola in the same squad. This is the club that played Gudjohnsen and Hasselbaink in tandem. This is the club that had Anelka and Drogba playing together. However in recent years, the lone striker lark has been a serious drag. We've sought out misfits like Falcao, Pato, Giroud, and sulky Morata. We need to go back to two up top.

Australia Get Pantsed at SCG
Pantsing is where one pulls down the shorts or trousers of another, much to the victim’s embarrassment and to the general hilarity of all and sundry, and especially the puller. That is exactly what’s happening to Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground at the hands of Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja and most of all the young superstar in the making the appropriately named Rishabh Pant. For India who have never won a Test series in Australia, to win one in this manner feels like payback for the umpteen times they were the ones being embarrassed by the hosts Down Under.
History Beckons at SCG
As the celebrations surrounding India’s retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the New Year’s fireworks over the picturesque Sydney Harbor fade, Virat Kohli and Team India have a tryst with destiny at the venerable Sydney Cricket Ground, where they will attempt to become the first Indian Test side to win a series in Australia going back to the very first Indian visit right after Independence in 1947-48.

George has spoken of his desire to not only compete against Robert but also to return the Williams team to higher up the championship after a 2018 season that saw them finish last.
