The chilly air that rolls around the Himachal Pradesh CA Stadium in Dharamsala does nothing to detract from the beauty of probably the most breath-taking cricket ground on the planet.

With brightly coloured seats and stands, the tight stadium feels like a cricketing Disneyland before the jaw-dropping backdrop is taken into account. The snow-capped mountains are awe-inspiring, providing stunning scenery for the thousands of England fans that have made the pilgrimage to the foothills of the Himalayas.

Dharamsala is a bucket-list destination, but for England there will be no shot at a bucket-list result. The venue might be perfect for a decider, yet for the second marquee series in a row, England have not given themselves the opportunity..

Two days before the group is to leave, Mary's husband puts his foot down and tells her she isn't going.

Mary's friends are very upset that she can't go, but what can they do?

Two days later, the three get to the hotel only to find Mary drinking a glass of wine in the bar.

"Wow, how long have you been here, and how did you talk your husband into letting you go?"

"Well, I've been here since last night... Yesterday evening I was sitting on the couch and my husband came up behind me, put his hands over my eyes, and said ‘Guess who?"

I pulled his hands off to find all he was wearing was his birthday suit. He took my hand and led me to our bedroom. The room was scented with perfume, had two dozen candles and rose petals all over... On the bed, he had handcuffs and ropes! He told me to tie and cuff him to the bed, so I did. And then he said, "Now, you can do whatever you want.

So here I am."
