Former England captain, Michael Vaughan, writing for the Daily Telegraph, says that a victory for England in the Test series against India would be bigger than the Ashes.

Everything will be against England in this series, and India will be desperate to show how good they are on home soil. We have already seen Duncan Fletcher's effect as India's coach in keeping spinners away from England in their warm-up matches. Their players will also want to pay England back after losing 4-0 in 2011. They remember grudges: recall Sourav Ganguly waving his shirt around at Lord's after Freddie Flintoff had done it in Delhi.
