The England cricket team wins hearts...
The return of the English team to India's troubled shores must be welcome with the highest form of respect. The team first had to convince their loved ones and ensure that everything is safe. A lot of voices were raised- some for the tour and some against- but better sense finally prevailed.
The England team then went ahead and donated 50% of their match fees from the 1st test to Mumbai's terror victims. This gesture surprised the Indian public forcing them to sit up and take note of the human side of cricket. The England team has definitely won a lot of hearts and fans!
The 1st test has finally started and Strauss began with a splendid century. I wish the England team the very best!
