The Over: England v West Indies – Third Test, Day 1

There we were, all set to be fascinated by the key issues at play when we woke up this morning. Would Finn and Onions play? Would Jimmy Anderson sit around with his moody face on? Would Bairstow get bounced out again in the absence of Roach? Would Sunil Narine be any good, or would he be another Ajantha Mendis? (Somerset fans know what we’re getting at here…) So with all that to look forward to, here follows a full and in-depth report of the first day’s play:

It rained.

A hell of a lot. When it’s bad enough that one of your humble scribes, who works in a cellar, could guess when the rain really hit its stride, you know has to be pretty bad.

Back tomorrow. Hopefully with some cricket to talk about, but failing that we’ll give the tried and tested anti-rain dance a go. And keep our fingers crossed.
