England-India series could be remembered as one of greats, says Chris Silverwood

England head coach Chris Silverwood believes his side’s current battle with India has the potential to go down as a classic series in the vein of the 2005 Ashes. The first three matches have had a little of everything – a rain affected draw at Trent Bridge that both teams felt they could win, a fifth day raid by the tourists at Lord’s and a resounding comeback at Headingley, where England levelled things with an innings victory. There has been plenty of on-field niggle too, though Silverwood’s men made a conscious attempt to take some of the heat out of proceedings on their trip to Yorkshire.
