This is great. A lot of matches packed into one month. 5 3day games and 4 one dayers.

I'n sure some of the players from the main team will stay back in England after the Tests and ODIs to join the A-team. Can anyone tell me if this A-team will pretty much be the same as the one in ZIM or are they trying to give new players a chance?

Good job with the A tour. Five 3-dayers and three one-day matches against the counties will be plenty of good practice, plus there is the warm-up game against Brit Universities. Also, we are playing some of the better sides in county cricket: Surrey, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Kent. Excellent, BCB is doing quite well with the tour scheduling.
