England's McGrath moment?:confused:

McGrath was injured during the morning of test not during a test that's almost wrapped up with a week to go until the next one.

Edgbaston, The Oval (end of summer) and Lords should be guaranteed tests.

I was thinking about the series against South Africa in 98 :blush:

I have to admit some nostalgia for that series given what came before and after.

England went from the absolute low of 46 all out in Trinidad 1994 to winning in Barbados in the very next test; and that was a great West Indies team.

Or am I simply clutching at straws?

What makes...

Bell is one of the most anonymous England cricketers in my lifetime. Few if any of his innings stand out. And he's played more than 100 tests.

Even his 100s down under in 10/11, don't stick in the...

There was definitely one in 1991 against West Indies, during the 3rd test, which coincided with the Wimbledon's mens final. But that was a one-off in that series - every other test was 5 consecutive...

Has there ever been such a turnaround in fortunes from one test to the very next?

Perhaps Perth in 2010 but then England have rarely ever won there.

Headingley in 09 also, although Australia had...
