Cricket on an outrageously cold and wet rainy day in England can be reduced to a mere waiting game. And when Team India strolled into the Trent Bridge ground in Nottingham expecting to get a decent practice after the great Lord's escape, the weather gods cried foul again.

After a bit of grief for the team at Trent Bridge, where no indoor facility existed, they found shelter 20 miles away from Nottingham where, tucked up in Loughborough University, there exists England's modern nursery of cricket - ECB's National Cricket Academy.

"It is the best cricket academy in the World," said academy manager Dr Guy Jackson as the Indians made way into the practice facilities at the centre.
