Pakistan to tour England for ODI, T20I series before World Cup 2019

Lord's will play host to the game

All-rounder Ben Stokes looks set to play in England's first Test against India - even though it could finish 24 hours before the start of his court case. 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.

On account of his stupendous performance in the limited-overs fixture against both Ireland and England, wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav managed to grab a spot in the 18-member Indian squad for the first three matches of the five-Test series against England. At the post-match presentation after losing the ODI series 2-1, Kohli said the selectors and the team management did not need to take any hard decisions. Rashid-Ali have been doing very well for England and have been taking those wickets in the middle parts of the overs. "I encourage anybody who is looking to join us next year to sign up to our Ashes Ballot for the best chance of securing their tickets".

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.

Swann said that the pitches will be bereft of any assistance and this should help the Indian batsmen to dig deep and pile on big scores which would then help the spinners.

England's bid to regain the Ashes next year will begin with the first Test against Australia at Edgbaston, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Thursday. This is the first time since 2014 that they are touring the country for a Test series.

Looking back at the ODI/T20I series, the former worldwide said that these two are the best sides in this format at the moment. England, however, have not lost a home series since 2001. Lord's was a bit of wake up call for India as well. "Instead, that will play into India's hands to be honest because 80 percent of the batsmen haven't played against Kuldeep yet", he added. You could have said the same about India as well.

Meanwhile, in ICC ODI Team Rankings, number-one ranked England has moved to 127 points after gaining one point, while India have dropped one point to finish on 121 points. Jos Buttler, too, had recently been picked for England on the basis of his white-ball form, and the returns were great for England.
