India v England Test Series 2016: An England fan Speaks

The first test of the eagerly anticipated India v England test series starts on 9 November. James Morgan, who runs the fantastic Full Toss blog, gives us an England fan’s perspective. What do you guys think? 

The last time Alastair Cook’s team toured India, England supporters had a rather pleasant surprise. Cook batted beautifully, Kevin Pietersen played a great innings at Mumbai, and Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar spun us to victory with 37 wickets across the four tests. It was an unexpected victory and an extremely sweet one.

Unfortunately, things have gone pear shaped since. Swann fell foul of an elbow injury, and Monty’s career has disintegrated faster than England’s second innings in Dhaka, and Pietersen’s career is deader than a mummified dodo. Alastair Cook will have to have the series of his life (again) for England to be remotely competitive.

1 Tip 1 Hand meets Nasser Hussain!

The Royal London One-Day Cup Final takes place at Lords on Saturday, the 17th of September. Eighteen teams have been jousting since June and the last teams standing are Warwickshire and Surrey. Warwickshire were runners-up in 2014 and Surrey came second in 2015. With this bound to be the last game of cricket for both these teams before winter sets in, the sides (featuring international players Sangakarra and Ian Bell) will be itching to get their hands on the trophy – something we have already done!
