England begin a busy summer of international cricket with a two-match series against Pakistan. The first Test takes place at Lord’s from Thursday 24th May, and Joe Root and his men will be determined to lay down a marker against talented opponents.
England, Australia and New Zealand will slug it out in what promises to be a captivating T20 tri-series this February, as three of the most destructive batting line-ups in world cricket go head to head to head.
England finally stopped the rot in Melbourne as a drawn fourth Test ended Australia’s push for a 5-0 Ashes whitewash, and now they will be desperate to get a win under their belt in the last match of the series.
The players have not even sat down for their Christmas dinners yet and Australia have already reclaimed the Ashes, but the big question now is whether they can go on to seal a 5-0 whitewash or whether England can salvage some pride in the remaining two matches.
