First Test LIVE from Lord’s – Morning session update

What better way to see the action than first hand? Both of your loyal bloggers have wandered down to the home of cricket to sit around shivering and bring you the news as it happens! We’ve even been spotted by Sky in our ridiculous blazers. See if you can too! So here’s what’s happened this morning:

Bloomin’ ‘eck it’s chilly today and it’s no wonder that it’s not really swinging. All the quicks have bowled good spells but Broad seems to have attempted a return to his ‘enforcer’ role by bowling half-trackers at Marlon Samuels, although to be fair, Samuels initially looked about as comfortable against the short ball as a certain Suresh Raina.

Chanderpaul’s stance is even stranger in real life – 2D telly really doesn’t do it justice. However, he’s batting like the worldbeater he is (jinx jinx…).

England need to make quick inroads with the new ball – Swann’s been carted to all parts and doesn’t appear to have got much turn.

If you’ll excuse us, we’ve got several scotch eggs, sausage rolls and a decent bottle of red to get through…
