Video - 'Mega' Series In Store Between Teams In Transition
In their latest video looking ahead to the England-India Test series, Chean Narula and John Pennington look at some of the background to the match-up.
After recalling some recent dramatic series including Sourav Ganguly's shirt-waving at Lord's in 2002, India's Test series win in England in 2007 and England's 4-0 success in 2011, Chetan predicts that this time around, the series will be 'mega'.
He makes the point that both teams are in transitional phases with India coming off the back of tours to New Zealand and South Africa while England hve recently lost series against Australia and Sri Lanka.
Furthermore Alastair Cook is under huge pressure as England captain.
