So whilst the rest of the world have been playing a pointless ODI tournament, England have been diligently going about their business back in Blighty preparing themselves for their forthcoming test series to the West Indies.
April 6-7 - 2-day warm-up, St Kitts
April 8-9 - 2-day warm-up, St Kitts
April 13-17 - 1st Test SVRS, Antigua
April 21-25 - 2nd Test Grenada National Stadium, Grenada
May 1-5 - 3rd Test Kensington Oval, Barbados
Last few days I’ve noticed the English journalist start to speculate on the squad details which should mean squad selection is nigh. Possible selections being mooted by journalists include Jonathan Trott, Mark Wood and Jonny Bairstow.
For the West Indies it’s hard to know what kind of team will turn out and where their heads will be given their current problems and the IPL.
