Back to test matches then. With such limited fare on offer, you'll forgive me if I pine for better things, and largely ignore the "contest" such as it is.

Expected MarginEngland by 301 runs

Needing to play every side, England have started opening their season with the lower ranked teams, taking advantage of their own green wickets and their opponents fragile batting. In the absence of anything better to play for, or anything better to take an interest in, the expected margin for this series is 301 runs, or an innings and some for England. Bangladesh might do well to beat even that, particularly with two of their best batsmen under an injury cloud, and no seamers worth the name.

Shaded teams have played fewer than 2 games per season. Non-test team ratings are not comparable to test ratings as they don't play each other.

Impressive Stuff
There is some serious work gone into this! And I don't imagine your win margin will be too far wrong either. An innings in both tests I reckon. Do you have a page somewhere detailing how you have worked all this out?
Thanks, Bradders

Bradders, there isn't, but there should be now that the methodology is fairly settled. I'll put something together shortly.
