Mumbai: Expect the unexpected. Very few in cricket may understand these three words better than Omar Henry.

While on the 'expect the unexpected' subject, Henry doesn't expect the touring Indian team to enjoy the kind of batting success the India 'A' team had on a tour to the Rainbow Nation in August when the wickets were more friendly to batsmen.

India won the first 'A' Test at Rustenburg by an innings and 13 runs followed by a loss in the second 'Test' at Pretoria. However, India won the tri-series one-day competition that also involved Australia.
