England v India: fourth ODI live!

Guardian Sport - 16 hours 55 min ago

10.08am BST

Hello world!

So Ive just got back from a family holiday in a remote part of the world that for all its fine beaches and promise of outdoor fun lacks a mobile phone network to speak of, certainly offers absolutely no prospect of roaming data access, with just occasional, glorious glimpses of wifi to succour the 21st-century traveller. I was left with no source of information on this series but newspapers actual ones, made of paper and bought from shops. It was like a step back in time. Still, Norfolks a fun place and Im sure Ill be back. And as a bonus I have been able to keep myself almost entirely ignorant of Englands travails in these ODIs.

9.52am BST

Simon will be here shortly. In the meantime have a read of how Vic Marks thinks England should approach the match:

It is not much consolation for England to learn that they are now taking on the No1 one-day side in the world. The latest calculation from the ICC takes into account Zimbabwes defeat of Australia as well as Indias victories here. So India are top while England are loitering at No5. This is not encouraging.

The pattern for English ODI teams in recent years is that they win more than they lose when playing at home in familiar conditions, in which their seam bowlers can trouble visiting batsmen. Away from home on browner surfaces they tend to lose more than they win, which does not bode too well for the seven-match series awaiting the side in Sri Lanka in November and December.
