    Match Thread: 1st Test, Rest of the World v Asia, at Lords

    World Greats Prepared for the Biggest Challenge

    Match Facts
    May 16-20, Lords London
    Start Time: 3:45pm GMT

    Big Picture
    It's been a long time coming, but the big boys are finally in town. The greatest players from both Asia and the Rest of the World have arrived in London ready to battle out to decide cricket's big question; who is stronger; Asia or the Rest of the World. In arguably the most anticipated test of all time, there may not be national pride involved, but their is certainly regional pride involved, and no doubt the supports will make sure everyone knows who they're supporting tomorrow.

    This is, however, a strange spectacle. The thought of English and Australian's joining forces to tackle a team containing players form both Pakistan and India certainly has it's criticizers, and a number of members at Lords have claimed that this contest is nowhere near as important to them as an Ashes test. In fact this series almost might not have happened had the Indian and Pakistani governments not come to agreement to let the ICC take the project forward.

    One thing is for sure though, the quality of the cricket will not be of poor standard.

    Players to watch

    Less than a year ago Stuart Broad was fighting for his place in the England side. His bowling was wayward, too short and unthreatening. Since then he's demolished India, taking over 20 wickets at 14 against them, has blown away Pakistan in the UAE and made a few runs along the way. The ROW selectors made a big call picking him in-place of Vermon Phillander, it's now up to Broad to perform to his now high expectations.

    He's never got a 100 at Lords, and when he left last year many thought he had missed his last chance. However, the creation of this series has left Sachin Tendulkar one last chance to fill the final blank in his otherwise spotless CV. In fact even a 50 would be good for Tendulkar, for he has never passed the 30's at the home of cricket; and if Stuart Broad can get his hight arm above the Sightscreen, he probably won't pass 30 this time either.

    Quotes

    "Asia is SCREWED we already won"
    ROW selector Piethepker, tells everyone his feelings bluntly

    "No doubt we hold the edge in the bowling department"
    Michael Clarke, ROW captain, says what everyone is thinking

    "No way will Flopdulkar make a 100, he'll be lucky to get to double figures."
    Sky pundit CSB doesn't mind the world knowing his opinion

    "A top 4 featuring Cook, Trott and Kallis; I might actually be supporting Asia in this one."
    Youtuber Robelinda vents his frustration at the ROW's team selection.

    "This a stupid series, designed by the jealous Rest of the World who will do anything in their attempt to prove themselves as good as Asia. They are jealous of our Premier League's, Jealous of our wealth of spinners and Jealous of Tendulkar."
    The World facepalms, as Ravi Shastri makes a fool of himself once again.

    "No doubt the Asian team have a few Donkey's in the field"
    Nasser Hussain isn't worried about treading in dangerous waters, despite problems within them before.

    Me and Pie have done the ROW team, and I've posted it. You need to finish the Asia team by 2:45pm GMT tomorrow.

    Yeah, I wish all of England's players snubbed the media every time we lost, and then spoke again after they scored some **** runs against Bangladesh that ultimately cost our team the game.

    ****

    The match has been delayed by rain, apologies.

    The match was scheduled to start 45 minutes ago, but there's a damp outfield.

    The umpires are inspecting the pitch now, Afridi will reveal the results of the inspection as soon as he find out.

    There are complications with the team sheets. Should be sorted in 10 minutes.
