India v England: fourth Test, day one – live!
Live over-by-over updates from the action in AhmedabadThe pain for Australians having to support England against IndiaAnd you can email your thoughts to Tanya or tweet @tjaldred 10.59pm GMT Incidentally, other members of the Indian team have been more critical than Kohli of the pink ball, with a member of the Indian team management telling the Indian Express”“The problem when facing the pink ball is that it skids much faster compared to the red ball. Muscle memory makes batsmen believe that the ball will come at a particular speed after pitching, like they are used to when playing with the red ball. But the pink ball comes much faster. This is a major issue. Also, our players are not keen to play Day-Night Tests because the pink ball has too many variables, including difficulty in sighting the ball.” 10.34pm GMT The alarm rings shrill but there’s a hint o’spring and a dash o’song in the March night. In Ahmedabad, however, there is little relief for England, groundhogdayed at the scene of their two-day thrashing, the pitch set to spin, the sun set to shine hot, and getting hotter - 37 degrees by noon. A sickness bug has beset the England camp - I wasn’t expecting to read about Paul Collingwood’s dicky tummy in quite such detail - as well as end of tour-itus starting to drift heavy. But there have been no naughty boy nets for England’s batsmen who, with five successive totals under 200, have endured their worst run with the bat since 1888. Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel, 42 wickets and counting, watch and wait.It’s time for #pitchwatch, a couple of days before the fourth #INDvENG Test in #Ahmedabad... pic.twitter.com/6zIE7haZ2G Continue reading...

Guantanamo’s highest-value detainee and the guard who befriended him
Mohamedou Ould Salahi was once Guantánamo’s highest-value detainee, but during the 14 years he spent behind bars he was never charged with a crime. Salahi and his former guard Steve Wood reflect on their time at the prisonOne evening in November 2001, an electrical engineer named Mohamedou Ould Salahi was visited at his home in Mauritania by plainclothes intelligence officers. They wanted him for questioning. Salahi was taken from Mauritania first to Jordan, then to Afghanistan, and finally to the Guantánamo Bay detention facility in Cuba, where he would be held without charge for 14 years – an experience he wrote about in his 2015 memoir Guantánamo Diary, which has now been adapted into a film, The Mauritanian.In the first of two episodes about his story, Salahi tells Anushka Asthana about the torture he experienced in detention, and the series of events that brought him under suspicion in the first place. Salahi’s former guard Steve Wood describes how he formed an unlikely friendship with Guantánamo’s most high-value detainee, and reflects on how that friendship led him to question his job and the entire “war on terror”. Wood’s friendship with Salahi is the subject of a new Bafter-nominated Guardian documentary, My Brother’s Keeper. Continue reading...
