Series level 0-0 Ian Blackwell(Eng), Alastair Cook(Eng),
Monty Panesar(Eng) and S Sreesanth(Ind) made their debuts in Test cricket.
When Swann retired midway through England's Ashes debacle in 2013-14,
debilitated by elbow trouble, Panesar should have been ready to step in.
In the second innings, only a dogged 5¾-hour 74 from Paul Collingwood and tail-end contributions salvaged a draw for England,
with final pair James Anderson and Monty Panesar left to block out the final 11½ overs of the match.
As well as this, stand-in captain Marcus Trescothick flew home for"personal reasons", not wishing to divulge further, leaving Andrew Flintoff, who missed the birth of his son, to take on the title of skipper for the first time having to captain two maiden international cricketers on the English
side: Alastair Cook and Monty Panesar as well as Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Piyush Chawla and Munaf Patel for the home team.
