Today’s plan:

Morning 🏏
Afternoon 🏉
Evening 🎵

Fourth Test, Day 1. England survive the first day to reach 302-7. A patient Joe Root worked hard to get a well-deserved century. A lot more than I expected after the morning session. A good day’s cricket 🇮🇳🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏏

🇮🇳 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Ravichandran Ashwin dismisses Zak Crawley to reach 500 Test wickets. Rapid century for Ben Duckett - 102 off 88 balls 👏🏏

Awake at 4:30am so of course I decide to get up to watch day 4 of the India v England second Test. England chasing 399 to win 😬🏏

Travelling to Bristol to help my son move flat. Cricket on the radio 🚘🏏

From ESPN CricInfo 🔗🏏

“Neither Rehan nor Bashir was born when Anderson made his Test debut at Lord's in May 2003, while his own Test cap number - 613 - is a full 100 caps shy of the 713 cap that Bashir will receive before the start of play on Friday. At the age of 41, Anderson is about to enter his 22nd year as an international cricketer, but Stokes had no qualms about bringing him back into the fray.”

Jimmy Anderson with blonde highlights - 😮 - takes a wicket! 🏏

Second Test between India 🇮🇳 and England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, day one. Missed the 4am start but did get up at 5am, just missing the first wicket, Rohit Sharma dismissed by Shoaib Bashir on debut. Hope this is going to be as interesting as the first Test 🏏

A lot to like about that First Test between India and England, enjoyed it immensely. Twists and turns, outstanding individual performances from Pope and Hartley and an unexpected victory for England in the final over of the fourth day 🏏

Now there should be some play on Day four of the Test 🏏

At least there was something worth waking up ridiculously early for. A brilliant century for Ollie Pope on Day three of the India v England First Test in Hyderabad 👏🏏

Time for a small Lagavulin. Just realised it’s Burns Night 🥃

Had to buy a new kettle. Our drinks preparation area now looking quite high tech ☕️😊
