England lock in Aussie, Indian home series

Marizanne Kapp was outstanding for the Surrey Stars in England's domestic women's T20 competition

Number one-ranked Test side India arrive for three Twenty20s and three one-day internationals and then only their second five-match Tests series in the United Kingdom in 59 years.

The former West Indies captain congratulated West Indies team for the recent win over England, in the second Test match at Headingley, which was the Caribbean side's first in 17 years on English soil.

The Middlesex seamer has taken 14 wickets in three Tests this summer including a sensational 5-57 in his first appearance in England colours.

Edgbaston will host the first Test from August 1, Lord's, Trent Bridge, Ageas Bowl and Kia Oval will be the respective venues for the other 4 Test matches.

Lara delivered the annual MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord's on Monday evening, and as well as speaking about the decline of West Indies cricket and his pride at their unexpected win at Headingley, he used the occasion to say how he felt the game should be played.

Root suggested as much when asked if a fully-fit Woakes or Roland-Jones was his preferred choice for the winter. "It is very important for the guys coming through and it is important it is someone who can prepare them for playing Test cricket".

Holding, alongwith Courtney Walsh, Curtley Ambrose and Malcolm Marshall was part of what is regarded as one of the most of the blistering bowling attacks in the history of the game.

If you have encountered crashes during the Destiny 2 beta on the PS4 then it will likely be the same in the full game. Once they've conquered the launch day content, Destiny 2 fans don't have to wait long for their next great challenge.

But that was not the way of the team and that was not what we were proud of as examples of how the game should be played. However, he said that at times he felt "embarrassed" by some of the tactics used by the Windies.

Fifties for Stoneman and Malan at Headingley might just about have done enough to see them book their places for the trip down under but Westley's spot at number three appears to be less stable after four successive single digit scores.

England pacer James Anderson was expected to bag his 500th Test wicket but went wicketless in the second innings to remain three short of becoming the sixth bowler to reach that mark. "We've got a chance to win this series so we are going out in this last Test match to win it".

'I think it was great that we sent a big humble pie for Nas to go and chomp on in the commentary box.

ENGLAND will start a Test match on a Saturday next summer for the first time in 63 years.

This has been all the more true of the current series, with the Lord's match England's last Test before they begin the defence of the Ashes in Brisbane in November.
