Live chat of the first Test between England and Sri Lanka
So, the first Test of the summer gets underway this morning. Half of England’s first-choice XI are either covered in bandages or hobbling on crutches; chances are they’ll have their feet up and will be watching on TV. That’s if they subscribe to Sky, of course…
This is the first summer that the first Test hasn’t been available on terrestrial TV which, being a non-Sky subscriber, I’m peeved at. I don’t doubt Sky will do a great job, but it’s back to TMS for me on my days off. Or the pub.
UPDATE 10.36 England win toss and bat. Sajid Mahmood (debut) and Monty Panesar to play. Ian Bell and Jon Lewis miss out.
