Dug out an old DVR recorder that hasn't been used for over a decade to record the cricket that is on terrestrial and starts at 4am which they don't upload to Catch up after (only highlights)

4am been killing me this series.

A spoiler would have been most welcome so I didn't have to watch that rubbish Laughing out loud

Game over for England already thanks to a wicket that turned even Indias average spinners into prime Shane Warnes.

1-1

All the moaning about the pitch from Aggers just sounds like sour grapes.

"Oh no, we don't know how to bat on pitches like this, it shouldn't be allowed"

Agree - Agnew, Vaughan et al come across as ridiculous when a No.8 just scored a rapid 100. Much like seaming pitches, this deck looks easier once you're through the new ball

Craziest first over of an innings I've seen in a long time.

Lovely knock by Kohli today. Matched by Buttler though who has won us the match. Cool

The age factor may help him, but (as an ethnic minority) it doesn't exactly endear me to the England team.

Plus him reading out his apology was pretty poor. Didn't come across as sincere at all. Like a schoolboy being forced to read out something prepared for him.

Decent bat by him when everyone else falling apart. Lots of space to stretch legs today. Smiling

Not a surprise, especially in the current climate. Feel a bit bad for him tbh, but the internet never forgets

Sri Lanka 12/3 after 4 overs. This is just embarrassing from them now. Need this mini-tour over with already.
