LONDON: One of the oddest cricket seasons India has played in England gets under way next week with the start of the World Test Championship at the Aegis Bowl cricket grounds in Southampton. India have been net practicing around the grounds increasingly over two weeks now past all the testing and wait periods in between. Over those two weeks the New Zealand team that got in before India, have played one Test, and would have completed the second before they meet India in the WTC Test from June 18.

It is usual for a visiting team, and it has been usual for the Indian team visiting England, to play a number of county matches and other matches to get some match practice in ahead of the first Test they play. This time India go straight into the game that matters, to play a much tested and Test-ready New Zealand.

And so with the women, preparing for their four-day Test against England starting Bristol. Most of the English women players have been playing busily through various league matches. The Indian women go more or less straight into it with their Test.
