As you’re reading this we will be preparing for the first Investec Test against the West Indies starting on Thursday. The West Indies certainly aren’t a team to be underestimated, but playing in our home conditions we hope to continue the high standard of cricket that we’ve been playing over the last 2-3 years. Hopefully the rain will stay away and we will be able to play a competitive Investec Test series and get the summer off to the best start.
As always your support means everything to us. The following we had throughout the tour to the UAE and Sri Lanka was amazing and we know the support back home has been brilliant as always. We had a tough test abroad this winter, but I feel we have learnt plenty from our experiences away from home and this England team is going to be better after playing in subcontinental conditions.
On behalf of the team I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and hope to see you over the course of the summer.
