Roooooot!

Thanks to Channel 4 showing *live cricket*, I was able to see Joe Root get a century in his hundredth Test. It was a joy to watch. So unfortunate that Sibley, playing so well, was out at the last minute. India are a better side than Sri Lanka, so I wasn’t expecting such a good day.
Talksport had the rights to ball by ball commentary for this match but after much fiddling with the radio, I could only find people droning on about football. Any advice?
