A changed England side will be looking to put the ghosts of Sunday behind them against the Kiwis at the Oval.
On Thursday in a new concrete bowl 25km outside of Pune a motley collection of young English cricketers, under the leadership of Eoin Morgan, take on a much more experienced India team still smarting from their Test-series defeat. This may have passed you by.
England omitted Eoin Morgan from their tour of Sri Lanka with the usual encouraging messages that they see this as an interruption, rather than a termination, of his Test career.
