The Saturday start - in the third Test against India at Trent Bridge on 18 August - will be England's first since they took on South Africa at The Oval in 1955.

While 23-year-old Hope had always been recognised as a talent within Caribbean cricket, there were a couple of moments at Headingley when Law was impressed by his composure under pressure and his hunger for further success.

England and the West Indies clash in the third and final test at Lords.

But no one takes 497 wickets in 128 Tests simply by starring on home soil alone and Anderson's career has featured many memorable away successes - notably when he led England's attack during their 2010/11 Ashes triumph in Australia.

The first appearance by the West Indies team came in 1928, where R K Nunes captained a team which toured England to play three Tests, the first coming at Lord's - which was also the first Test match between the two nations.

"It would be great to win the series in England, but there's a process towards going about that", Holder said.

Lastly, the hosts will take on a touring India, who will play a three-match T20 series, a three-match ODI series and a five-match Test series that is set to be concluded on 11 September.

Anderson, who insisted any talk of himself assuming the role was tongue in cheek, said: "It is [an appointment] for the next generation - me and Stuart Broad could probably finish off our careers without a bowling coach in the side".

"There is a long long way to go (before he gets close to Tendulkar's record) but he is certainly a great batsman", said Holding. "That's God's honest truth.(and) he went out and won the game".

"I am a bit of a believer in fate so if it's meant to be this week, then it will happen", said Anderson, speaking before his 129th match for England.

'He doesn't want to stop where he's at now - he wants to keep going.

Lara was quoted as saying, "I grew up at a time when West Indies dominated the world. I know I am talking about it but I really don't want to think about it". "Before the series, I told the players to make their own history, to chart their paths and to make a statement to the world that we can compete with the best".

"We just hope the islands it is going to affect, the people prepare well and hopefully they are not hurt too badly". "But I hope those doubts are now well and truly put to bed and they can start flourishing".
