England's schedule is completed by a five-ODI and one T20 series against Pakistan in May, which will serve as a warm-up for England's World Cup campaign, which begins with an opening fixture against South Africa at The Oval on May 30.

The boost of consecutive, unbeaten ODI hundreds can be carried over into the game's longest format as England look to make their recent record - six defeats in eight Tests under Root's captaincy - a thing of the past.

And it is in his favour at the moment because the ball is not swinging. Lord's was a bit of wake up call for India as well. You play against the same team over and over again, it can present different challenges - that constant improvement has been brilliant since Trent Bridge. India's two big match-winners at home, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, were retained.
Swann said India's middle-order problems are an offshoot of their in-form top-order, including the struggle of MS Dhoni, who didn't bat well during the last two ODIs.
"It's going to be an incredible opportunity for cricket supporters in the North West to come and watch the greatest players from around the world performing at Emirates Old Trafford".
