I have to agree. Having the Dukes ball and different conditions at each of the Test grounds must make it one of the best countries for Tests. Then in the summer we have the longer daylight hours. We also have the fastest draining ground at Lords and the hovercover at both Lords and Old Trafford plus all the history.
