London: July 21, 2014
England‘s 95-run defeat by India in the second Test at Lord’s on Monday made it 10 successive Test matches without a win for the team — their worst winless streak in the format for 21 years.
Since beating Australia at Chester-le-Street in Durham to go 3-0 up in last year’s Ashes in England, Alastair Cook‘s men have failed to record a solitary win, achieving three draws and suffering seven defeats — all by large margins.
