Tight schedule frightens England cricket team in India
Tight schedule frightens England cricket team in India

England cricket team has left Bangladesh on Tuesday after a disappointing defeat against the home team. Next, they will be coming to India for a long tour. The tour will consist of 5 Test matches, 3 ODIs and 3 T20 internationals. The team is looking quite frustrated with the busy schedule as they need to play 5 test matches over a span of 6 weeks and that too without any break in between.

It's been long for the English team to visit Indian sub-continent.

"It won't happen again under our watch," Colin Graves, the chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, told The Daily Telegraph "It was not our decision. We have -inherited the future tours programme that was put together four years ago. It has a massive impact on players, coaches and families.

"There cannot have been much thought put into it. You have to balance the schedule out so it is not overcrowded, ensure the travelling is reasonable and look at the workload for both players and coaches. They have their own lives and families and that is what we have to take into account in future."

Ahead of the series, English team has asked former Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq as their spin adviser or coach for being handy on Indian pitches. How this all is going to work, we will be seeing as the game progress. So stay tuned for the action and updates.
