Summary

  • London: Wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow said England will look to carry forward the momentum of their come-from-behind ODI series triumph against India into the Test arena when the first game gets underway August 1.
  • The 28-year-old said: “There’s an overlap of players between the Test and the ODIs so coming off the back of a series win is going to naturally boost your confidence.”

  • Eoin Morgan’s ODI team have won their last eight series but it’s been a different story for England’s Test side who are ranked fifth in the world and have failed to win any of their last three series with just one match won.
  • Test captain Joe Root starred with the bat in the ODI series against India and hit the headlines for his ‘mic-drop’ celebration after scoring a match-winning century at Headingley.
