    England v India - Only Test - Bristol

    England have made a good start - 84/1 at lunch.

    I gather it's on Sky Sports Cricket.

    Local interest, Georgia Elwiss of Sussex CCC is in the England team.

    Early days, but if it goes well it may turn out to be the only test match an England side win for a while.

      Well I'm interested, even if nobody else is

      Regardless of what England team you follow, a collapse is never far away:
      From 230/2 finished at 269/6

      Also, despite the larger proportion of overs bowled by spinners, they apparently still can't get the overs in. Which show what bollocks the idea of fitting more overs into a day during a 4 day test is.

      More concerned about the use of an active wicket. Poor show.

      I've had shedloads of work today so I missed keeping an eye on this - only caught bits of the Wales match.

      Work should be banned in the summer when there are test matches and football tournaments (and that's before the Lions tour)

      Agree. The ECB should give themselves a suspension for the sexist action of providing a wicket played on for 39 overs. Inclusion and diversity my arse.

      Shame the mini-collapse spoiled what was otherwise a good day for England with the bat. Hopefully we can push on tomorrow morning.

      Junior is off to watch this (Fri I think) as part of a weekend on the lash. Weather doesn’t look very hopeful for the rest of it though.

      I went to a day of the test against Australia at Taunton a couple of years ago. I'd say my lack of specific memories is 50/50 between the amount of beer drunk and England's generally underwhelming performance in that game. I eventually found somebody willing to give me pints of Tribute from the cupboard rather than the fridge.

      As a day out it's pretty much the same as the men's game, barring the lack of genuinely fast bowlers, but for less than half the price.

      Thought when England were 140/1 (or thereabouts) how much Joe Root must be cursing the fact he has to put up with his openers instead of some competent ones

      Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      I've been to a few women's internationals - but only the whizz-bang stuff, not a test. The best one was a game against NZ 17 years ago. It was the day before Pride and the whole County Crowd seemed to be filled with drunken lesbians making lewd comments. It was quite an atmosphere (as the game, Isa Guha took a four or five-fer to win the game for England)
