England will relish chance for a rematch with India – Chris Silverwood

Chris Silverwood, England’s head coach, says his players will relish the opportunity for a rematch with India in their own conditions this summer, but added that he was proud of their efforts on tour this winter, despite coming off second-best in all three formats.

After losing the Test series 3-1 last month, and the T20Is 3-2, England completed an unwanted set on Sunday evening, as they fell agonisingly short in their pursuit of 330 in the ODI series decider, despite Sam Curran‘s career-best 95 not out from 83 balls.

It means that England still haven’t won an ODI series in India since 1984, having also lost the corresponding campaign 2-1 on their last tour in 2016-17, although their emphatic six-wicket victory in the second match of the series does at least preserve their No.1 world ranking for now.
