Legend Monty Panesar, who was a key player in England’s most-recent tour win in India in 2012, has thrown his support behind the brekkie campaign.
Panesar said: “After a year with so little live sport, it has been fantastic to be able to watch such an exciting test series.
“With the result currently 2-1 to India, cricket fans all over the UK will be up early to watch the finale.
“What better way to start the test in India than with a taste of India.”
