Been decent hasn’t it.
Spin’s working well!
What's the highlights situation for this tour. Daughter is getting well into cricket but is it just on Sky?
Sky indeed, commentary on TMS as well. If you have a VPN and change your location to SL then can you can watch on Sri Lanka Cricket's Youtube channel
Bess with 4!
This is utter shithousery
Best worst 5fer ever
Two batsmen out to reverse sweeps on the first day of a Test Match.
If I hadn't 'just' got up, I might need to go for a lie down.
Calling it club cricket would be an insult to all the decent clubs out there. Its making me really want to go back to Sri Lanka though, such an amazing place, unfortunately there wasn't any cricket on when I went a couple of years ago.
Aaaaand it begins 😂
Weird to have no Burns, Pope or Stokes in the team. I know there’s still the India test series to come in the summer but I’d like to see them looking more settled for the Ashes.
This isn’t test cricket.
Bairstow and Root have settled it down and its starting to feel like 'proper cricket' again. We'll probably lose them both next over now I've posted that...
Bairstow doing much better than I thought. I don't think this bowling attack is capable of showing up his weaknesses.
Slow outfield and spin bowling makes for a dull watch. Good performance though. Don’t think I’ll bother getting up at 4.30 tomorrow.
Cautiously optimistic for a 1st innings lead.
What a strange day.
One upvote for BBC Sounds app.
Was listening to the TMS (distanced) coverage,
when a mate called me on WhatsApp,
(yep I know, I have suggested he also downloads Signal).
Call finished and I brought the BBC Sounds to the front and clicked on the play button.
Didn't realise it had paused my coverage,
was expecting to have missed the intervening commentary,
so just enjoyed an 'as Live' finish to the day's play.
Caught up with the morning's session, lovely day-boo from Lawrence, looks à shoo in for India the way he plays spin.
Pitch is showing signs of wearing so I think England will want a 250+ lead and hope to only bat once.
Really feel for Mendis at short leg against Mr Sweep
He’s soldiering isn’t he, looks like that hand is agony.
