English batsmen are having problems on the Indian pitch as they have no technique against the spin. It is better to implement Sunil Gavaskar's approach- It never hurts to remind them of that fact. The first match win might have boosted the morale of England but they failed to make a big score for India to chase in the 2nd match. Even Root, who had been playing spin for the preceding month, found it difficult to play the spin.
The main concern is that England refuses to produce any spinners for their own team. Fortunately, they have a chance to teach India a lesson or two when they come over to Blighty this summer. As everyone knows India hasn't got any fast bowlers to worry about… for now?
Organizing cricket tournaments have posed a challenge for all the host countries. Taking all the pandemic precautions and hosting matches successfully proved to be a hard nut to crack for Pakistan.
If Pakistan Super League had put as much thought into biosecurity as they did for securing a tea brand on their TV coverage, things might have gone better. Even Sri Lanka Cricket, with its low bar for the administrative system, managed to pull off hosting the Lanka Premier League.
It is also quite interesting to see a good un-retirement! Shahid Afridi made a post-playing career out of these. It seems Chris Gayle taking a similar path. Gayle returned to the West Indies against Sri Lanka declaring himself available to fill "whatever role they want me to play". He also added: "If it's opening, I'm ready, No. 3, No. 5 - I'm pretty much flexible. I will still be the best No. 5 in the world, best No. 3 in the world." Well there is still a lot to see in the cricket world in this time of new normal.
