There are three highly attractive games in the County Ground, Taunton – a knowing, west country venue that is getting used to the big time again.

Memories of Richards and Botham launching the ball into the River End will come flooding back if the big-hitting Australians get their way. They will face Pakistan in a monster of a contest that will no doubt enthral a capacity 8,500 crowd. And with a day-night game between New Zealand and Afghanistan and a final match between Bangladesh and West Indies, the cider will be flowing at this most famous of cricket grounds.
