    Wonders if he was not comfortable with a target bit higher than that he might have thought we might fall in our own trap ;)

    England will probably make two changes against Pakistan, Jimmy and Broad in for Dernbach and Finn?

    England XI vs England Lions , What kind of target was that?

    Lions scored 96 and XI had to chase 230 ? What was that?

    Yes, the reason why was because England needed some good limited-overs practice before the ODI series. The management requested they be given a tougher challenge, but not "enough" of a challenge, so they asked for 230. 230 is a 'tough task', apparently

    Wow, thought that the Lions would have done definitely way better, because something is wrong when Dernbach gets 3 wickets @ RR 2.62.

    Its not like they broke any rules or something. They only REQUESTED the Lions team and any team would be stupid to not take that offer considering the score they originally got out for.

    I don't think anyone would have a problem with India or any other nation doing something similar. It was a tour match, just for practice.

    How is wanting to get match practice and to get fit for games sissy?

    Do you expect them to sit in their 7 star hotels and smoke pot all day and then somehow be match fit for the ODI series?

    Honestly, why didn't they go for 300 as the revised target? Surely that would have provided better practice...
