No Trent Bridge Ashes Test as England confirms schedule

  • India announced test squad

Ideally England would want him to play too to get some red-ball cricket under his belt before playing in a Test match against the world's best players of spin. Root had the wherewithal, the soft hands, the time to play the ball late and an array of strokes to take advantage of any errors in line and length.

India skipper Virat Kohli held on to his No.1 spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI player rankings for batsmen, but had a new man just after him with England Test skipper Joe Root vaulting to the No.2 spot at the end of the three-match rubber.

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. They are two very good sides, batting deep and possessing clever wicket-taking bowlers.

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. "Not liking the trend of wrist spinners getting ahead in race for spots in Tests based on their limited-overs performances", Manjrekar said on Twitter.




"There is nothing more important to England cricket fans than an Ashes Series". Since the climate in England is hotter than usual times, the pitch will be seen more dry and will favour spin especially during the later sessions of the 5-day test. With the added element of being England's first Test series in the new World Test Championship, it's a hugely exciting prospect and we anticipate unprecedented demand for tickets. 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".
