Test cricket emerges from shadow of the Hundred as India eye England glory again


It’s a battle of two top bowling attacks, but both teams are still mulling their top-order combinations

Big picture

It’s funny to think that a series of this magnitude – with these teams and these players – has flown under the radar over the last month. Relatively speaking.

Trent Bridge was doused in the Hundred’s branding a couple of days ahead of the first Test, and even when it’s not on, the IPL has influenced cricket scheduling across the world, including pushing an England tour of Bangladesh 18 months into the future. That the ECB’s and the BCCI’s premium products will hold sway in this day and age is understandable, perhaps, but it is hard to imagine this series won’t be front and centre when it kicks off on Wednesday.
