England lock in Aussie, Indian home series

A big cheer returned among the global lovers of West Indies and Test cricket when the Caribbean team defeated England in the second Test of their ongoing tour at Headingley, and among them was batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, who messaged his friend and fellow legend Brian Lara expressing his happiness. 'But to be honest, I do try to put it to the back of my mind.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have confirmed England's schedule for the summer of 2018 as they will face four different nations in a span of three and a half months.

Root's England take on West Indies on Thursday in the deciding Test match - Chris Woakes has been dropped from the side with Toby Roland-Jones called up to play after impressing against South Africa.

He referred to the 1988 series against Pakistan and said that a string of poor umpiring decisions helped the team win the series which had the likes of Imran Khan and Abdul Qadir in top form.

England advertised last week for a new bowling coach and it would be unusual if Anderson was not consulted on a replacement given his vast experience, although he has firmly ruled himself out of the running for the job.

"It was truly embarrassing", he said.

"There is a long long way to go (before he gets close to Tendulkar's record) but he is certainly a great batsman", said Holding.

Speaking about the India series, ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said: "A five-Test series against India is at the heart of next summer's worldwide programme".
