    Will series defeat in India be a wake-up call for England?

    Will series defeat in India be a wake-up call for England?

    Ben, Michael and Phil reflect on England's heavy fifth Test defeat to India, which saw the series end 4-1 in the hosts' favour.
    After such a promising start in Hyderabad, we ask where it all went wrong in the following four Tests for England and if lessons need to be learned given the nature of the defeat.
    We discuss England's struggles facing spin bowling and what needs to be done to correct that ahead of the summer, and if there needs to be some changes to the squad to freshen things up.
    We also take a look at the positives from the series in the form of the emergence of Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley after the two spinners announced themselves on the international scene, and the Telegraph's Chief Cricket Correspondent, Nick Hoult, checks in for the last time from on the ground in India.

    Former England batsman and coach Mark Ramprakash joins the show to discuss the series and where the line is between winning and entertaining. Is the modern England fan more interested in exciting performances rather than winning Test matches?

    India take series win with Ryan Sidebottom

    India take series win with Ryan Sidebottom

    Michael, Phil and Ben reflect on the fourth Test between India and England which saw the hosts clinch the series with a now unassailable 3-1 lead.
    It is the first series defeat for Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes since taking charge nearly two years ago, so we ask if England are still progressing, especially given the emergence of young spinners Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley.
    Former England seamer Ryan Sidebottom joins the show to offer up his thoughts on the series and to discuss how he would feel being a bowler in the current England setup and the criticism of Ollie Robinson following the defeat. Sidebottom also explains why he believes there is a distinct lack of left-arm seamers available to England right now.
    We also check in with the Telegraph's Chief Cricket Correspondent, Nick Hoult, who joins us from Delhi.

    Can England still win in India?

    Can England still win in India?

    Michael, Phil and Ben reflect on a sobering third Test for England which saw Brendon McCullum's side thrashed by 434 runs in Rajkot.
    We dissect the defeat in detail and ask if the England team will carry on with their unadulterated 'Bazball' philosophy or tweak their tactics to ensure they do not suffer another heavy loss.
    We also get stuck into the form of Joe Root, who came in for heavy criticism for his dismissal in the first innings, and we also ask if it is time for Jonny Bairstow to be taken out of the side after another poor showing.
    Plus, we check in with the Telegraph's Chief Cricket Correspondent Nick Hoult to get the latest from India and the England camp.

    Ben, Michael and Phil look ahead to the third Test between India and England in Rajkot. England's bowling line-up has taken a hit with Jack Leach ruled out for the series and the question marks over Rehan Ahmed's availability, after he became the latest player to encounter visa issues, also disrupted preparation. 
    England and Yorkshire spinner Dom Bess joins the show to discuss his current form and his hopes to break back into the England setup. He explains how Bazball has affected how he plays county cricket and gives us his opinion on how England should approach the rest of the series, having played in India last time around in 2021.
    Plus, we check in with the Telegraph's Chief Cricket correspondent Nick Hoult from Rajkot, who provides an update from the ground ahead of the action on Thursday.
