    Joe Root's masterful century reminds us of his greatness & Akash Deep impresses on debut | India vs England | 4th Test Day 1

    Joe Root's masterful century reminds us of his greatness & Akash Deep impresses on debut | India vs England | 4th Test Day 1

    Yas Rana and Phil Walker reflect on a thrilling first day in Ranchi, headlined by Joe Root's 31st Test century.
    Akash Deep made an immediate impression on debut, dismissing England's top three in a stunning new ball burst, before Bairstow and Stokes both fell to spin to leave England 112-5 at lunch.
    The afternoon belonged to Root though, who knuckled down and cleverly crafted one of the best centuries of his glittering Test career in tricky conditions.
    Ben Foakes played brilliantly at the other end for his 47, while Tom Hartley and Ollie Robinson also offered important resistance.
    England finished the day on 302-7, with Root unbeaten on 106*.

    Weekly show: Bazball's worst defeat? India hammer England by 434 runs in Rajkot

    If day three was bad for England, day four certainly wasn't any better.
    Phil Walker, Ben Gardner and Yas Rana react to India's thumping 434-run win against England in Rajkot, a victory that puts them 2-1 up in the five-match series.
    India piled on the runs in the morning session - Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring his second sensational double century of the series - before the declaration came with England set 557 to win.
    The visitors never got close, crumbling to 50-7 before ultimately being bowled out for just 122.
    Mark Butcher also joins the show to review the third Test.

Vichael Maughan ,

Best cricket podcast there is

I have listened to a LOT of cricket podcasts, and this is comfortably the best. Fantastic insight and journalism, and very well-rounded coverage. Too many sports podcasts descend into generic waffle and jokes, and stray from the topic, but these guys actually talk seriously about cricket!! Especially enjoy Yas and Katya’s insights! Keep up the good work 👍

Terrific sports podcasts

I love the enthusiasm and passion combined with detailed knowledge. Mark Butcher is as good a broadcast journalist as anyone out there and the bar in cricket is high.
