I get the rotation due to bubbles, quarantines and the like, poor Chris Woakes had been in bio secure bubbles in South Africa, Sri Lanka and India since December and hadn’t played a single match of any format!

But resting players so they can play IPL? Those that pay the piper call the tune, I suppose, but then you can wave goodbye to winning Test series in India when you have players, with no games under their belt, flying in and out and then chucked in to the side against a top team and expecting them to immediately perform on bloody tough pitches.

4th Test starts in the early hours of Thursday morning from Ahmedabad, coverage from 3.50am.....

England need a win to draw the series.

That's 10.50 am here which is just about perfect.

It's a shame it will only be for 2 or 3 days.

England will need one player to play an extraordinary innings - like Root's in the first Test - to break the bunker mentality and mindset.

I think defeat is inevitable. Which is more depressing at the moment - England cricket, England rugby or Rovers?

Hard one to call Jim. There are days when I wish I'd never got interested in sport as a lad. My drinking chum is blissfully unaware of anything sporting at all.

There has been a sickness outbreak in the England camp. It's not clear who has been affected and whether anyone will be ruled out of tomorrow's game but I guess that's quite possible.

It's not as bad as the sickness outbreak on this board. We're all sick  !
