#PoliteEnquiries: Is this a four-Test series or four-toss series?
What better way to start the day than a fresh, hot injection of George and Raunak into your eyeballs?
9.20am: Signed, sealed… delivered?
Hello again, folks. Day three is often moving day of a Test – but you sense this one has already unloaded the van and is getting comfy in its new surroundings. Pretty much everything India have touched has turned to gold this time around in Chennai, and they will be backing themselves to wrap up a series-levelling win at some point later today or tomorrow. England, barring Headingley-plus-plus miracles, know this game is probably beyond them… but there’s still a series to fight for, battles to be won and lost.
