    ENG 300/6 in 73 overs

    Bumrah into the attack. Angling in to the stumps, Pope flicks it through the leg side for another boundary. Looks like a bit of cramp for Bumrah. Physio out to check on him. Full outside off from Bumrah, beats Rehan’s attempted drive. 

  • January 27, 2024 16:17
    ENG 295/6 in 72 overs

    Pope pushes a full ball to the left of long off to get a couple. England now with the lead of 100.

    Rohit takes a catch at slip and appeals but looks like it came off the pad. Pitched way outside leg stump so no danger off LBW as well. Rehan looks to go inside out. Doesn’t get it out of the middle but falls short of Ashwin at deep cover.

  • January 27, 2024 16:11
    ENG 289/6 in 70 overs

    Good tight over from Axar. The last ball turns and bounces off a length, beating Rehan all ends up. 

    Jadeja with his 23rd over. Turn again, beats Pope as he prods forward to defend. Full on leg stump, Pope laps it over his own head and gets it behind for a boundary. Now he brings out the reverse sweep but will only get a single.

  • January 27, 2024 16:00
    ENG 281/6 in 68 overs

    Axar continues. Pope brings out the paddle sweep to loft it over Rohit at slip and to the boundary for four. WICKET!!! Straighter one from Axar, keeps low and Foakes sees the bails dislodged. That kept very very low.

    Rehan Ahmed in at 8. Jadeja continues, beats Rehan’s outside edge with ripper. Four!! Wide this time and shorter, Rehan cuts it through the offside for a boundary.

  • January 27, 2024 15:54

  • January 27, 2024 15:49
    ENG 261/5 in 64 overs

    Change of ends for Jadeja. Turn again. Beats Pope outside off. Four!! Reverse sweep from Pope, finds the gap on the offside and gets a boundary. Dropped! Swept again uppishly, Axar jumps but can’t hold on to it. A four off the very next ball to cover to make matters worse.

    ENG 248/5 in 62 overs

  • January 27, 2024 15:27
    ENG 228/5

    Ollie Pope continues attempt reverse sweeps despite not being able to time most of them well. Indians continue to wait for one magic ball or England batters to make mistake. 

  • January 27, 2024 15:16
    ENG 219/5

    Siraj is here now. He too concedes eight runs in his first over of the spell although the boundary came as a four-byes. 

  • January 27, 2024 15:13
    ENG 211/5

    R Ashwin is back into the attack. England welcomes him with a 11-run over. 

  • January 27, 2024 15:11
    ENG 200/5

    Bowlers are making sure there are no lose balls. Although ground fielding hasn’t been that great today. 

  • January 27, 2024 15:03
    ENG 197/5

    Bumrah getting the ball to reverse into the right hander just a tad bit. Bowlers will need to work hard for wickets here. Still a decent enough pitch to score runs. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:51
    ENG 191/5

    Jasprit Bumrah is back into the attack. Not much movement out there. Plan is to attack the stumps. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:50
    ENG 191/5

    England has now taken a lead. How far can it be stretched? Ollie Pope is the perfect person right now who can answer this. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:44
    ENG 186/5

    Five runs in the last two overs. The pitch is slow so length will be key here for the Indians. Back of the length might not work here for Axar and Jadeja here which they have been bowling in this session so far. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:36
    ENG 181/5

    Jadeja from the other end. Ashwin’s misfield in the deep gets Pope a boundary on the second ball of the over. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:32
    ENG 177/5

    Axar Patel to begin proceedings. Pope takes a single on the first ball. Foakes ends the over with a boundary. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:30
    Evening session

    England is five down and still trails by 18 runs. How much can it add from here? Pope is there and playing well. 

  • January 27, 2024 14:08
    ENG 172/5 in 42 overs

    Jadeja continues. After a few fuller ones turning away from the right-hander, Jadeja gets one to straighten and hit the pad, but it was going down leg. Tea Break!!

  • January 27, 2024 14:07
    ENG 172/5 in 41 overs

    Axar replaces Ashwin. Keeps it on an off-stump line with the odd ball straightening. Dealt with well by the batters. Maiden over. 

  • January 27, 2024 13:57
    ENG 170/5 in 39 overs

    Jadeja gets some turn and bounce, beats Pope’s outside edge. Shorter in length to close out the over, Pope goes onto the backfoot and is beaten on the edge again.

    Ashwin has a fielder right behind him for Pope. A fuller length ball is pushed to his right and Pope comes back for the second. Pope gets down to sweep, is beaten in the flight and the ball thuds into his body.

  • January 27, 2024 13:49
    ENG 163/5 in 37 overs

    Jadeja gets one to turn and keep low. beating Stokes on his attempted reverse sweep. TIght over, just two runs from it.

    Ashwin continues from the other end. Pope miscues his attempted sweep, hangs in the air but falls well short of the fielder in the deep. WICKET!! Cleaned him up!! Stokes is gone. Full on leg stump, turns and removes the off pole. 

    Stokes b Ashwin 6(33)

    Foakes in at 7. A straighter one first up, beats him on the outside edge.

  • January 27, 2024 13:44
    ENG 157/4 in 35 overs

    Jadeja to Stokes, full, reverse swept to deep backward point for a single. Quite an open field for Stokes but he’s quite happy to play the defensive game for now. 

    Ashwin continues to tighten the screws on Stokes. Maiden over for the offie.

  • January 27, 2024 13:35
    ENG 154/4

    Pope continuing on in the same vein after his fifty. Four!! Jadeja goes full and Pope sweeps through midwicket for another boundary.

    Ashwin with a beauty against Stokes. Turn and bounce to beat the batter. Bharat removes the bails in a flash and the umpire sends it upstairs for a stumping check. Very very close that but the umpire gives it not out. Stokes gets a leading edge but the ball falls well short of the man at 45. 

  • January 27, 2024 13:26
    ENG 149/4

    Full toss from Ashwin, Pope steps down and flicks it through midwicket for a boundary and brings up his fifty in the process. 

  • January 27, 2024 13:21
    ENG 142/4

    Jadeja now!! Bairstow is shocked. The ball didn’t turn. Jadeja’s last ball turned, beating Bairstow’s outside edge. Next ball, same length, Bairstow lets the ball go and watches it crashing into the off stump. Superb bowling. 

    Ben Stokes walks in. 

  • January 27, 2024 13:15
    ENG 136/3

    Axar Patel into the attack now. Pope comes down the track and smacks Axar for four over the head. 

  • January 27, 2024 13:10
    ENG 131/3

    Bairstow and Ollie Pope have decided to play out Bumrah and try to open their arms against Jadeja. Pope attempted two reverse sweeps off Jadeja in this over: one went for four, he was beaten on the other. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:58
    ENG 122/3

    Ravindra Jadeja is into the attack now. Two runs from the over. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:57
    ENG 120/3

    Suddenly the run rate has dried up. England probably waiting for this Bumrah spell to finish. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:46
    ENG 117/3

    Bumrah strikes again! This time it is Root who departs. Came back into the right hander and hits the front pad. Umpire raised the finger immediately but Root thought there’s an inside edge and reviewed immediately. However, there was nothing on the ultra edge and the ball tracking suggested umpire’s call. A terrific spell by Bumrah this. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:34
    ENG 115/2

    Now Mohammed Siraj is into the attack. Looks like India wants to extract as much movement as possible. Two runs in that over. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:31
    ENG 113/2

    Bumrah strikes! That came into the left hander. Duckett was in no position to defend it and the off stump goes for a toss. Bumrah is pumped up. Two boundaries earlier in that over have all been recovered. Team India in a huddle after that wicket. 

    Joe Root in at number four. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:18
    ENG 97/1

    Jasprit Bumrah from the other end. A huge appeal for LBW against Duckett. Ball came back in sharply for the left hander but umpire isn’t interested. A discussion in the Indian camp but no review taken. 

  • January 27, 2024 12:13
    ENG 94/1

    R Ashwin to begin the proceedings with Pope on strike. A single on the first ball. Five runs in that over. Pope and Duckett have now added 49 runs in 40 balls.

    ENG 89/1 in 15 overs

    ENG 80/1 in 14 overs

    ENG 49/1 in 10 overs

    Wicket slowing down quite a lot now. Axar’s first ball of the over is punched through extra cover for three. Duckett turns one to the legside for a single. Was very close to the short leg fielder.

    WICKET!! Ashwin gets one to go straight with the angle. Manages to catch Crawley’s outside edge and Rohit has an easy catch at slip.

    Crawley c Rohit b Ashwin 31(33)

    Ollie Pope in at 3. Gets off the mark with a couple. Tries a reverse next ball but only manages to sweep it into the keepers pads.

  • January 27, 2024 11:00

    Six!! Crawley steps down and lofts Axar right back down the ground for six. Positive footwork from the opener. Four!! Duckett connects his reverse sweep and gets another boundary.

    Axar into the attack. Duckett attempts a reverse sweep but the ball bounced a touch too much and he misses his swipe. Two runs from the over.

  • January 27, 2024 10:48
    ENG 11/0 in 4 overs

  • January 27, 2024 10:45
    ENG 10/0 in 3 overs

    Ashwin starts from the over end. Gets the inside edge of Duckett first ball. Trickles past short leg and he gets a single. Four!! Crawley brings out the reverse sweep right after almost being caught at short leg.

  • January 27, 2024 10:13
    IND 436/9

    Root strikes! Jadeja has been trapped in front. Umpires raises his finger. Jadeja reviews though. Looks like the ball has touched both bat and pad at the same time. Will be a very tough call to be made. Wickets and Impact both umpire’s call and Jadeja walks back after scoring 87. 

    Jasprit Bumrah is the new man in. OUT! Golden duck. Through his defence and cleans up the stumps. India is suddenly nine down.

  • January 27, 2024 10:04
    IND 427/7

    India in no mood to take any risks. Looks like Axar and Jadeja have been asked to bat as long as possible, accumulate as many runs as they can to completely bat England out of the game. 

  • January 27, 2024 09:56
    IND 427/7

    Just one ball has troubled Jadeja so far today. Root turning it away and almost taking the outside edge off Jadeja’s bat. 

  • January 27, 2024 09:48
    IND 425/7

    Just two runs coming in the last two overs. Root and Wood are right on the money while Jadeja and Axar are happy to take their time this morning. 

  • January 27, 2024 09:38
    IND 423/7
