The struggling Indian tourists are looking forward to the arrival in England tomorrow of star opening bat Virender Sehwag.
India look to be in disarray after being blown away by England in the second test at Trent Bridge. They have not been helped by injuries to key players.
Sehwag had surgery on his shoulder in May and is now fit to resume duties. Secretary of the Indian Cricket Board , N Srinivasan said: "Sehwag will fly to England early tomorrow to join the Indian cricket team."
However, ideas that he wants to play yet are, apparently, misguided. A source who once worked in the post room at Wisden said: "Forget it. He's coming over to see some old mates at Leicester. You know, hang out, chill and have a few curries - you can get some great curries in Leicester.
"Come on! He's just had his shoulder done. Give him a break. Time for a little curry!"
