    Meanwhile, out in Colombo we’ve got one of the great sporting rivalries as Pakistan and India face each other in the Asia Cup.

    Pakistan won the toss and put their opponents into bat. Openers Rohit Sharma and Shubnam Gill are unbeaten on 42-0 after seven overs.

    In the meantime, five County Championship games have got going with teams fighting for promotion and relegation towards the season end.

    Join our colleagues there.
