Episode notes

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.
