England will visit West End from August 30 - September 3 for their first Test on Botley Road since beating India by 266 runs in July 2014.

While the day-night match against West Indies last month went well, hosting one against India would have pushed the timings further away from their market and the Pakistan series is too early in the season. Root's team is otherwise unchanged, meaning Tom Westley is retained at number three despite averaging 20 in his first four Tests.

India was defeated 3-1 in its last Test series in England (2014), but was a 4-0 victor when the teams met on the subcontinent past year.

'I think it was great that we sent a big humble pie for Nas to go and chomp on in the commentary box.

The home side came unstuck against the West Indies in seam friendly conditions at Headingley exposing the flaws of a team that relies heavily on its allrounders.

"I'm immensely proud of the boys.to come out and produce what they did was an awesome turnaround", the Australian said.

They also need to forge chains of interconnected development and seek strength in unity, the Chinese president continued. Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold bilateral talks on Tuesday.

Yet despite being set over 300 to win in the fourth innings following a declaration by England captain Joe Root, the West Indies won by five wickets.

But having gone wicketless in the second innings of England's surprise defeat by the West Indies in the second Test at Headingley - a result that left the three-match series all square at 1-1 - Anderson was philosophical about his chances of joining the "500 club" at Lord's. We bowled, in one hour, seven overs. "I thought we showed great character last week, coming back into the game after a poor start". It was dark and Graham Gooch had to call his troops from the field and the West Indies grabbed a draw.

He further said that he had received a text message from Indian legend and his contemporary, Sachin Tendulkar, who had hailed West Indies' recent triumph as "a success the entire world needed".

As expected, ther ewill be no day-night Test next year.

"You're always trying to win Test match series", he told Sky Sports News on Tuesday.

He also referred to events in the 1990 series against England suggested that seeing his heroes behave in such a manner was "one of the saddest moments in the world". "We thought we could build on that and close out the series at Headingley".
