This week’s edition of The Cricket Paper…

A first ODI series scoop over India in seven years means England have now beaten the five teams below them in the ODI rankings, maintaining their spot at the summit.

There is plenty of reflection in this week’s edition of TCP on how victory over Virat Kohli’s side boosts England’s acumen as 2019 Cricket World Cup favourites.

But that is not the only talking point we focus on this week given Ben Stokes upcoming trial in court, Ben Raine’s century for Leicestershire Foxes, and Australia turning towards having a frontline spinner who can bat in Ashton Agar.

Here’s a deeper look at what features in Friday’s TCP:

  • Derek Pringle questions whether Virat Kohli is capable of adapting as his team’s captain when things don’t go to plan
  • Chris Stocks brings you his player rating from England’s 2-1 ODI series win over India
  • Peter Hayter takes a look at the vastly different careers of two players who made their England Test debuts 12 years ago
  • Alison Mitchell discovers on the eve of the new KSL season England head coach Mark Robinson has set benchmark for the batters to try and reach
  • County Championship previews across Division One and Two, including Lancashire v Yorkshire at Old Trafford
  • Isabelle Westbury outlines why there is still so much to be done for cricket to become a sport for all
  • Derek Pringle has his fingers crossed IPL star Rishabh Pant will be given a chance to shine in the Test arena
