One brings two! :D

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Kohli's expressions when he's out are some of the funniest things in cricket.

That ball from Moeen though :datass: Absolute jaffa.

Stone on for Moeen please, if only to dry up an end.

Why is Root so reticent to throw the ball to Stokes? Or is there something else going on?

Ended the last game with something of a knock

He didn't bowl much in that game either. I wonder if Stokes is carrying some kind of semi permanent injury that means they can't have him bowling too much because he risks breaking down and not being able to bat either.

I remember a while back that he was going to have surgery on his knee but I dunno if COVID prevented it

Why didn't they go back and look at the right part of the footage?

Two dodgy decisions there but got both wickets shortly after which is fortunate

Yeah it was.

India's day overall considering how badly this pitch is likely to disintegrate. We're going to have to bat bigly in our first dig.

Yeah, I'm not quite in the Michael Vaughan 'we're doomed before tea on the 1st day' camp but I don't see us winning batting last on this pitch. We need quick wickets tomorrow and then bat long.

Yep, England are going to have to bat even better than they did in the last test just to get 250 here with the way the pitch is going already.

Could get ugly, but you never know with England.
