Collapsed to 8-528

Doing better than last time we were in Chennai. Scored 477 runs and still lost by more than an innings!! Karun Nair I think had played a couple of tests and scored 300 not out. He scored a mammoth 374 runs in only 6 tests in his career. Probably retired as he was never going to do any better. I think he came in at number 6 or something ridiculous like that.

210 not out.
Only the sixth player to make 200 on debut.
Not a bad effort. Only Bangladesh but they can't be easily dismissed any more, especially at home. They have beaten both Australia and England in the recent past.
Also a re-modelled West Indian team after alot of senior players refuse to tour because of Covid-19.

Some interesting Tests going on right now.
Pakistan v South Africa might yet be the best of them.
South Africa 1-127 chasing 370 with a day to go.

4 - 72 in the second dig, track playing tricks, over 300 in front though.

Will be an interesting finish. 6/145 ahead by 386 is a great lead. If England can bat till either the end of the day or maybe until 10pm our time, they might get 20 mins at India tonight.

168-8, over 400 in front, can Bess & Leach bowl India out? Wicket looks like a sandpit.

Good battle on day 1 of the second test. India 3/147 with Rohit Sharma 100 not out.

Three top dismissals. Olly Stone with a late in-dipper to Gill shouldering arms, Stokes making a tough catch low to his left at slip off the spinner look ridiculously easy, and Ali bowling a corker to get Virat for a duck through the gate, Kohli standing there like WG Grace refusing to believe he'd been bowled for a quack.

Tough pitch looks like it will break up so if India can get 300+ the Poms will struggle.
