Oh dear. I’ve just discovered that this is happening, on Channel 4 TV:
You don’t need a jet to screw up your sleep patterns. Interesting television at 4am will do the job just as well.
I was just looking for daily highlights. Instead, I discover the whole thing.
For some reason this bit of computer graphics refused to allow Gadwin, my screen scanner, to scan it. So, I photoed it. “Rating 7”. Bloody cheek.
The game I’m now watching is this one. The very first thing I saw was Stokes getting out. Pujara nearly dropped it, but he didn’t. England now 431-4, with Root approaching his second double century in the space of three test matches.
And Root now has his two hundred, going to it with a six. 440-4. The stadium is empty, but he won’t care.
