Video - Five-Test Series - Good For The Fans, Tough For The Bowlers - Cricket World TV
In the latest of their England v India discussion videos, John Pennington and Chetan Narula discuss the rarity that is a five-Test series between the two sides.
Chetan recalls the last time he can remember India playing a five-Test series against anybody before analysing whether who benefits most from five Tests in 42 days - if anybody.
Both he and JP consider that it is toughest on the bowlers, can be brilliant for batsmen if they get in form, interesting if rivalries develop but most of all, that it is great for the fans.
India lead the series 1-0 after a draw at Trent Bridge and a 95-run win at Lord's - their first at the venue since 1986.
The third Test gets underway in Southampton on Sunday 27th July.
