Aren't they going to India in February?surprised to learn that England's next international fixture after this tour is in June 2021
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly confirmed the schedule for the series planned in February-March while speaking at an online event. "England is touring India for four Test matches, three ODIs and five T20s
That's because BCCI hasn't confirmed dates. Once they do, they will appear on the ECB website.I had a look at the ECB website, and it says they have host:Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan in their home months of June ,July and August 2021.
Can't see anything where they have India in Feb.
it would be fair to say South Africa had a special generation before this current crop in Steyn, ABdV, Morkel, Graeme Smith, Kallis......unfortunately this current crop is nowhere near their class. Losing players to Kolpak doesn't help as well.
I've never been to South Africa but how big an issue is the quota system in South Africa?I'm a big supporter of the quota system, or at the very least the logic behind it, but after reading that the numbers are set to be bumped up further I'm starting to wonder just how much damage it is going to do in the short to medium term.

I'd assume it a bit like if the Australian cricket team didn't have a minimum number of NSW players in the setup, the people in NSW would be whingeing and complaining.
I couldn't ever seen for instance, the Australian cricket team, requiring a minimum number of indigenous in the match squad setup. Could you imagine how the Australian public would react if there had to be a minimum quota applied to the Australian national cricket team? I think personally it would create a bigger divide, in a country I feel is more unified than say 50 years ago.
Hard to believe it's been ticked off by the referee and even harder to believe a captain would actually agree to do it IMO.Interesting seeing the fall-out from the correspondence between the captain and the dressing room via coded signals.
Surely that's going a bit far.
Agreed. Absolute lunacy.Hard to believe it's been ticked off by the referee and even harder to believe a captain would actually agree to do it IMO.
But it’s vastly different. A Drs review is very time limited and a video feed can dictate whether it’s worth reviewingGiven the uproar there was when Smith once asked the dressing room about a DRS review in India (fair enough criticism too) I don't see how this is much different.
