English cricket

Is the current England side the country's greatest?

Carlyle Laurie

England’s fast bowler James Anderson recently said he wanted the current side to be one of the greatest England teams there has ever been. Andy Bull, writing in the Guardian, says that the next two years will decide whether they are the best England side in history.

Over those next two years England play series at home to the West Indies and South Africa, away to India and New Zealand, and then to Australia at home and away. If they stay unbeaten through that run, they will have earned that legacy Anderson says they hunger for, as one of the greatest XIs England has ever had.
