    Hopefully India will be playing at some point, too :lol:
    A Test and 3 ODIs vs Zimbabwe in June, before 4 Tests against the Windies in July.

    They have a home Test against Bangladesh at some point in the summer, too,

    I saw the Windies tour announcement yesterday (I think), but didn't know about the series against Zimbabwe or Bangladesh.

    England and Australia should be coming to India towards the end of the year too, I suspect.

    It won't be closely fought.

    Yep. England and India playing five Tests, five ODIs and a T20 in India in November.

    Australia are playing four Tests against India in India in March 2017.

    The usual England, Australia and India series every year. Pathetic from the ICC/Big 3.

    Agreed. Seems to me that the logical step to include associations/smaller nations is to create more tri-series. That way, teams don't have to travel more or necessarily fit in more fixtures.

    For instance, rather than playing five Tests and five ODIs against each other, why don't England and India invite Bangladesh along for a tri-series? Likewise, when Sri Lanka face South Africa in SA come Christmas, why not get Zimbabwe involved?

    It may not be closely contested at the start, but how else are teams expected to grow?

    With India playing away, you never know.

    Really looking forward to the India vs England test series already! Should be a good hard fought series.

    As expected, Pandey comes in for India. The last time he played, his hundred steered them to victory.

    Sammy has said the Windies are facing "the whole of India" tomorrow. He's not wrong.

    As a neutral, I can't wait.

    Big game today. The only change for India will be Pandey, with him replacing Yuvraj. Interesting, because you'd imagine the Windies bowlers - especially Badree - are relishing the chance to bowl at somebody who hasn't faced a delivery in the tournament thus far.

    Indeed - but I'm talking about the World Twenty20. With no games or appearances under his belt, Pandey represents something of a target for the Windies you imagine, regardless of his form last time out with the bat.

    Excellent analysis of Pakistans WT20 failure.

    West Indies bowling first.

    Rahane and Pandey in for Dhawan and Yuvraj. Happy with that, I would say.

    C'mon West Indies! Probably a flat track so chasing 130-145 shoud be ideal, especially for this WI batting order.

    Badree to take 3 wickets.

    Defending won't be easy, especially with the dew in Mumbai, but hopefully we can put enough runs on the board. Come on India!

    Fielding was rubbish tbh. Gayle will get out and pressure will build and thus a collapse.
