Blink and you’ll miss it – England’s summer Test match schedule that is.
It seems like only this morning Alastair Cook was leading his side out at Lord’s on June 12 for the first Test against Sri Lanka.
Fast-forward two months and we are edging closer to the final five-day contest of the English summer.
A dramatic turnaround in the last couple of weeks has reversed England’s fortunes – a side that couldn’t buy a win are now on the verge of winning their Test series against India.
After losing 1-0 at home to Sri Lanka, Cook came under increasing pressure, but it has been so great to see how he – and his side – have bounced back so resoundingly to gain the ascendency in their current series.
While not every player has been at the top of their game at all times, individual performances have carried both England and India throughout this series.
And with just one Test to go, it is worth recalling some of the most important and integral individual showings that have lit up English cricket ground this summer.
So without further adieu, here is a countdown of the top five performances of the England – India series thus far.
