TNT are showing all 5 of the India v England Test series. 
First match starts 4am Thursday 25th January.

They have a streaming presence on Discovery+, but it's often hard to find out which membership level gets you what, or sometimes what they are even showing at any given time.

The Discovery+ app is as bad as their website.

I got discovery+ to replace gcn+ for cycling. It is a really terrible app to use. Hopefully SL+ are taking note of which apps to emulate and which ones not to.

Yes, I got Discovery+ for Track Cycling. But it's not always on there; sometimes it's on the UCI YouTube channel and keeping track is a pain in the Lee Anderson.

Well done the Windies! I wasn't expecting that.

Tenuous RL connection. Stokes being the son of a former RL coach is well known, but who knew that Simon Hartley is the son of Bill Hartley, former sprint coach/  conditioner at Widnes and Wigan?

A lot of people, myself included, will need to do some eating of words.

Excellent.

I am afraid I was one of those who was saying that Ben Duckett was living in cloud cuckoo land after the first day, when India were 120 runs behind with 9 wickets left of their first innings.  He said England were in a good position! 

Well what do I know? In my defence, I know that India really do not lose games at home from that position.

First time they've lost from that position at home, I believe?

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Do try to catch a clip of the Stokes run out - one of the greatest pieces of fielding you'll ever see.

Edit - Like this one:

Very surprised to see Hartley take 7 in an innings against India. Given his returns in first class cricket I figured he might take one or two in the match but not really be a threat. To be fair, didn’t think he’d get carted around like he did in his first spell either. Incredible effort. You would’ve got long odds on Pope scoring 190 odd in the second innings after the first innings as well.

Jaiswal scored a double century, with the next highest Indian score being 34!

England all out for 253. I think we're going to see the series levelled unless something astonishing happens.

Early wicket for England against India after tea leaves them on 228-7 with a lead of 371 on day 3.

Alastair Cook on TNT hoping for a quick mopping up session of the Indian tail.

2 days to make 400 on a pitch that’s still doing a bit?  Would be glorious, but surely we couldn’t, could we?
