India vs England 1st Test Highlights Chennai Day 1

Scoreline: England 229/5. Strauss 123. Cook 52.

Unfortunately, the highlights for Day 1 are not available. Day 2's Highlights and all remaining Test Series (full) highlights are available at Cricket Online TV.

Even if you're an England supporter, I can assure you, you didn't miss much due to the non-availability of highlights. Watching Cook and Strauss in the morning session was as riveting as watching an Anti-virus scan.

Zaheer got his old pal Bell. Pietersen looked horrible scratching around for 4 (33) and was out trying to force Zaheer. Collingwood got a poor decision from, who else, Billy Bowden - around 6 inches gap between ball and glove. Matt Prior was given a rare boost when James Anderson was sent ahead as night-watchman. He got a reprieve first ball off a bat-pad. Even-an-out-of-luck-Collingwood is not equal to Anderson; nevertheless, a decision apiece for either side. Flintoff was playing a for-the-team sort of game, and hopefully he can inject some joy into this game tomorrow.

Prematch: After a token rescheduling of venues, England's tour will kick off once again on December 11. The Indian team will be pretty much what played Australia, with Zaheer-Ishanth alongside Harbhajan-Amit Mishra. Yuvraj Singh will be back to usher in the only likely change from a month's back cricket vs the Aussies.
