England bowled out for 81. Achieving their lowest total in a Test in India 😢. So far in the day - less than 2 sessions - there’s been 127 runs scored and 17 wickets taken. India need 49 runs to win. Don’t think this is going to last long. 🏏
Joe Root bowling in the first session this morning - 5 wickets for 8 runs in 6.2 overs. His first five-wicket haul. I have been glued to watching the India v England third Test; was meant to be switching to radio coverage so I could get on with some home DIY 😉 🏏
It means the first Test in Chennai starting in the early hours of Friday morning will be the first live Test cricket on free-to-air TV in the UK since the iconic Ashes series in 2005, which was also on Channel 4.
Up early enough to see the final 25 overs of the fourth Australia v India Test match. Rishabh Pant just got his 50 and looking strong; India should surely get at least the draw they need to keep the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Definitely an exciting finish ahead. 🏏
Pleased that Test Match Special is still broadcast on 198 kHz Radio 4 Long Wave and not just on digital/DAB channels. Enjoying tense finish to the 3rd England v Australia ODI on an old radio. Maxwell impressive! 🏏
England v Pakistan first T20 match is underway at Old Trafford. Really surprised that the weather has stayed good enough - there was no hope for the Glamorgan v Worcestershire Rapids Vitality Blast T20 here last night. 🏏
Glamorgan’s first home game of the recently started cricket season - Glamorgan v Gloucestershire at Sophia Gardens in the Bob Willis Trophy. No spectators, but at least there’s live streaming on YouTube. 🏏
