Since I was watching the afternoon and evening sessions of the first day while puffing my way up a random hill on on of my gym’s cycling machine, I missed whether Warnie – Sky’s heralded new boy in the commentary box – actually turned up.
Shortly before the start of play I heard a wry David Gower lamenting that he was expected and would be joining the crew later, but didn’t hear his voice through my tinny headphones.
So, where was and indeed, is, Warnie? Was he stopped on route by a well-timed text. And are there any nurses in Cardiff wearing a strange smile on their faces?
