India v England 4 match test series is on Channel 4. Plus ODIs, plus T20Is.

Day 1 is underway, England are batting.

I tell you what, those Indians do love their cricket, not only do they start playing really early in the morning, but in the middle of winter too.

Lovely getting to watch it in Channel 4, even if the last minute nature of the coverage is a bit obvious.

Joe Root is rather good at this.

Been following on BBC, had no idea it was on Channel 4, that's exciting. Hearing Lou Bega's Mambo #5 at half ten in the morning was the highlight of many a summer back in the day.

England going very well at the moment, 235/2. Should be posting a 500 plus score from here, which they will if Root stays around. He's in the form of his life.

Root gets his double hundred with a six. Been watching for about two hours now and hes not put a foot wrong. He must be knackered

9 hours at the crease in 30 degrees cannot be comfortable

A lovely win in the first test. I think that is 6 wins in a row in Asia?

Is there anything left unsaid about just how good Jimmy Anderson is?

It's one of those endless debates. I don't think Anderson's peak was as high as a lot of bowlers, but very few touch him for longevity and sustained excellence - maybe Courtney Walsh or Richard Hadlee.

It's a fair point, how to judge.  It's like in the NFL, the adjusted best season ever is Joe Namath, but very few would argue he's the best of all time.

Looking a bit more like I was expecting this series to go today. Not sure we've even done much wrong, India are just good at batting at home.

Wish this test started a couple of days later. I'm not holding out much hope of catching any Saturday morning, got a horrible feeling India have got their mojo back and might wrap this up quickly. Really hope I'm wrong
