The England cricket team came very close to qualifying for the inaugural World Test Championship Final. Unfortunately, Joe Root's men could not defeat India in their last series. As a result, they had to settle for the fourth position in the table.
England recently lost a home Test series against New Zealand. Hence, the English side's confidence will not be at the highest level when they begin their new World Test Championship campaign.
Joe Root's men are scheduled to face heavyweights like India and Australia in the new WTC cycle. On that note, here's a look at England's complete list of series.
