Welcome to the highlights and scores from Day 4 of the first Test between India and England in Hyderabad. 

  • January 28, 2024 17:36
    England takes 1-0 lead

    In the five-match series, England has now taken a 1-0 lead after the first game. Ollie Pope’s 196 and Tom Hartley’s seven wickets in the fourth innings were the key. A great match. India did come very close with R Ashwin and KS Bharat’s fightback. Even Siraj and Bumrah gave an outside chance. In the end, England was too good, at least in the last two days. 

  • January 28, 2024 17:29
    IND 202/10

    India needs 29 runs to win. 

    Tom Hartley is back. OUT! Siraj comes down the track and is stumped. All over. Hartley finishes with seven wickets in this innings. England wins by 28 runs.

  • January 28, 2024 17:24
    IND 202/9

    Mark Wood into the attack. Batters take a quick single although Wood kicked the ball directly to the stumps. Another single. And another single. Three runs from the over. 

  • January 28, 2024 17:18
    IND 199/9

    Siraj slog sweeps Hartley for a four towards midwicket. 36 runs more to win. Siraj is in full mood to hit Hartley coming down the track. Eight runs in that over. 

  • January 28, 2024 17:16
    IND 189/9

    Stumping appeal against Bumrah. After failing to score a shot, Bumrah jumped in frustration. Lucky for him, Foakes removed the bails just when his foot was back on the ground. 

  • January 28, 2024 17:01
    IND 182/9

    India needs 54 runs to win. England needs two wickets. 30 minutes more to play. 

    OUT! Hartley strikes again and Ashwin is gone. Ashwin comes down the track, attempts a slog, misses the ball and is stumped. Ashwin falls for 28. 

    Siraj the last man in. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:56
    IND 176/8

    Hartley gets a fifer!! Bharat is cleaned up! The ball turned miles away from the leg-stump and crashes into the off-stump. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:46
    IND 173/7

    Jack Leach is back. Two consecutive balls to cut: Ashwin hits a double then gets a boundary on the next. Nine runs off the over.

    More defensive field for Rehan now. Bharat hits it over mid-on for a four! Six runs off the over. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:31
    IND 153/7

    Half-tracker by Rehan and Bharat smacks it past covers for four! And another boundary over the slips! Bharat left the ball, but it bounced off the toe end of the bat and over the slips! Nine runs off the over. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:25
    IND 144/7

    Rehan Ahmed is into the attack. Will Ashwin attempt to attack him? Nah, just a single in this over. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:23
    IND 143/7

    Ashwin is very much tempted to punish Hartley’s long hops but somehow isn’t able to. Wood from the other end is getting the ball to reverse a bit into the right handers. 10 more overs left in the day. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:12
    IND 141/7

    Tom Hartley is back. Ashwin and Bharat attempting to play out the day here. Just pushing through the singles whenever they get an opportunity, otherwise it’s all about the defence. 

  • January 28, 2024 16:07
    IND 138/7 in 50 overs

    Wood returns for a spell. Batters push the ball either side of the wicket and take two runs from the over. Root with his 17th. Two runs off the over. 19 runs and 1 wicket in the last ten overs.

  • January 28, 2024 15:47
    IND 134/7 in 48 overs

    Slightly short from Leach. Ashwin goes back and cuts, beats Rehan at cover and runs away for a boundary.

    Root in for his 16th. Appeals for LBW against Bharat. Not given and England decide against the DRS. Bharat steps down and attempts a loft. Doesn’t connect well but gets a double.

  • January 28, 2024 15:46
    IND 125/7 in 46 overs

    Bharat and Ashwin happy to smother the full balls and look for the single. Just three runs off the last two overs.

  • January 28, 2024 15:35
    IND 122/7 in 44 overs

    A single from Leach’s 7th over. Hartley motors on from the other end. Only one from his over as well.

  • January 28, 2024 15:20
    IND 120/7 in 42 overs

    Leach replaces Root. WICKET!! Shreyas edges to first slip and England move one wicket closer to victory. Ashwin in at 9. 

    Hartley continues. Big appeal from the keeper and the close in fielders. Umpire says no. England review. Flat line on UltraEdge. Ashwin survives.

  • January 28, 2024 15:11
    IND 119/6

    WICKET!! Direct hit at the non-strikers end as Jadeja tried to steal one after miscuing a full toss. He’s gone!! What a blow to India’s chances. Stokes the man with the throw. Bharat in at 8.

    Hartley with his 16th. Beats Bharat’s front-foot prod. Repeat of the previous ball. Two maidens in a row. 

  • January 28, 2024 15:04
    IND 119/5 in 38 overs

    Root again. Jadeja gets a quick single to mid on. Pope drops one at leg-slip. Might have come off the glove before hitting the pads. Ball keeps low, Jadeja just about manages to keep it out.

    Hartley bowls one full on the pads, Shreyas drives through midwicket for a boundary. 

  • January 28, 2024 14:57
    IND 112/5 in 36 overs

    Root continues. Shreyas pushes one to deep mid to get off strike. Just a single from the over. Three singles from the Hartley over. 

  • January 28, 2024 14:46
    IND 108/5 in 34 overs

    Root misses his line again, Shreyas lookes to turn it behind and it runs away to the boundary for four. Leg byes given. WICKET!! Rahul is given out LBW! India take the review. Height a factor in this one. Three reds and Rahul is gone. India has lost 5 wickets. Jadeja in at 7.

    Hartley continues. Low bounce on most deliveries but Hartley is getting some turn. India will need these two to take it till stumps. 

  • January 28, 2024 14:38
    IND 102/4 in 32 overs

    Root with his tenth. Fires one down leg against Shreyas. Left alone. Full on the stumps, Shreyas turns it leg side and gets off the mark. 

    Hartley continues. Turn and bounce first up as it beats Shreyas. Turn again but this time it keeps lower. Four byes as the ball rolls under the keeper to the boundary after pitching.

  • January 28, 2024 14:33
    IND 95/4 in 30 overs

    All set for the final session of Day 4. All eyes on Rahul and Axar to eke out a partnership and get India closer. 

    Hartley with his 11th over. WICKET!! Axar pushes one straight back to Hartley and England pick one early! Shreyas joins Rahul at the crease.

  • January 28, 2024 14:09
    IND 95/3 in 29 overs

    Joe Root for probably the last over before Tea. Rehan only gets one over. England probably wanted to more control going into the break. Given how Rehan was hit for three fours, Stokes went for Root for this over. A maiden. 

    Tea break. 

  • January 28, 2024 14:03
    IND 94/3

    Rehan Ahmed for the first time today. And Axar Patel smacks him for four three times! A straight drive, then towards covers, and finally a pull towards square leg. 

  • January 28, 2024 13:53
    IND 81/3

    Rahul unleashes his sweep shot twice in two balls against Hartley and finds boundaries on both occasions. Target is now 150 runs ahead. 

  • January 28, 2024 13:45
    IND 73/3

    Mark Wood is back. Stump line bowling. Indian batters happy to defend. Still doesn’t seem like a very difficult wicket to bat. 

  • January 28, 2024 13:41
    IND 72/3

    Change of ends for Tom Hartley. He’s pitching it in the right areas and controlling the turn of the ball. Threatening. 

  • January 28, 2024 13:34
    IND 67/3

    Leach continues. Full on the stumps, Rahul pushes to short mid off for a single. Two runs off it. 

  • January 28, 2024 13:26
    IND 65/3 in 20 overs

    Leach continues. Rahul sweeps but hits it straight to short fine. Full, Axar gets off the mark with a single to long on. Joe Root is back from the other end now. Maiden over.

  • January 28, 2024 13:16
    IND 63/3 in 18 overs

    Four!! Rohit brings out the reverse sweep. Root pre-empts in first slip and moves across but its beyond his reach and runs away for four. Another reverse another boundary for Rohit.

    Hartley with his eighth. First one keeps a bit low. Rohit does well to keep it out. WICKET!! Rohit is given out LBW! Rohit reviews. Three reds and the India captain departs. Hartley picks up his third.

    Now now, Axar Patel walks in at number 5.

  • January 28, 2024 13:03
    IND 53/2 in 16 overs

    Leach again. Beats Rohit’s front-foot defence with a peach. Beats his edge again on the fourth ball. Maiden over. Pope takes a blow to his helmet after Rahul cuts one off Hartley. Concussion check going on. Four!! Hartley bowls one full on leg, Rohit sweeps to fine leg for a boundary.

  • January 28, 2024 12:56
    An almighty shock at the Gabba!!

  • January 28, 2024 12:55
    IND 48/2 in 14 overs

    Jack Leach into the attack. Tight over, just a single conceded. Hartley continues from the other end. Four!! Rahul rocks back and cuts, the fielder at cover misses the ball completely and it runs away to the boundary.

  • January 28, 2024 12:50
    IND 42/2

    Hartley gets Jaiswal! He comes down the track and hits the ball straight to short leg. It wasn’t a comfortable stay for him having to block the ball. He goes for 15. First wicket down for India. 

    Shubman Gill in at number three. And he’s out on the second ball! Straight to silly point. What an over this! India two down. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:42
    IND 35/0

    Runs are coming for India, but England hasn’t bowled poorly so far. The target is now less than 200. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:35
    IND 27/0

    One can sense a big shot coming from Jaiswal. Perhaps a get-out-of-jail shot. England hasn’t bowled a lot of loose balls so far. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:24
    IND 24/0

    A huge appeal against Jaiswal off Hartley for LBW. Umpire hasn’t given it but England reviewed it. The ball is spinning and missing the leg stump according to the ball tracking and Jaiswal survives. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:16
    IND 17/0

    Tom Hartley replaces Wood. Jaiswal vs Hartley will be an interesting battle to watch here. Two singles in that over. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:12
    IND 15/0

    Jack Leach is back in the field. He’s heavily strapped in the left knee. Full toss by Root and Rohit Sharma drives it for four. Root continues to trouble Jaiswal. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:08
    IND 10/0

    Mark Wood from the other end. Rohit gently guides the first ball of the over towards deep third for four. Dan Lawrence in the field for Jack Leach currently. England is one spinner down right now. Rohit ALMOST edges the ball to the second slip but just falls short and it goes for four! Nine off the over. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:04
    IND 1/0

    Rohit Sharma at the strike. Joe Root opening the bowling for England.....! Comes round the wicket to the right hander. Rohit takes a single on the third ball to get the first runs on the board for India. One run in that over. 

  • January 28, 2024 12:02

  • January 28, 2024 11:10
    ENG 420/9 in 102 overs

    Change of ends for Ashwin. WICKET!! No bounce at all and Hartley is castled. India finally breaks the partnership. Wood in at 10. Testing five balls but Wood survives.

    Jadeja returns to the attack. Pope misses his reverse sweep and is rapped on the pads. Umpire says no and India take the review. Wickets missing and Pope survives. WICKET!! Wood prods forward to defend and Bharat completes the catch behind the stumps. 

  • January 28, 2024 11:05
    ENG 419/7 in 100 overs

    Tight over from Siraj. Manages to find Hartley’s under edge as he looked to cut. Goes on the bounce to the keeper.

    Axar into the attack. Four!! Full outside off stump, Pope drives through the covers for another boundary. Vicious turn again, beats first slip after taking the flap of Bharat’s glove. Byes. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:53
    ENG 412/7 in 98 overs

    Four!! Siraj goes short. Hartley pulls it behind square on the leg side for four. Follows it up with a yorker down leg. Good over from Siraj, but India needs a lot more to remove Hartley.

  • January 28, 2024 10:44
    ENG 401/7 in 96 overs

    Siraj continues. Pope gets a double to deep cover off the first ball. Four!! Full again, driven down the ground past a diving mid off for a boundary. Dropped! Rahul drops Pope at slip. Was a shorter ball and Pope got an edge trying to cut. Easy chance spilled.

    Ashwin continues. On the stumps, Pope turns it to deep fine for a single. 400 runs up for England. Gets one to turn a mile from the stumps. Comfortably beats Hartley’s drive. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:39
    ENG 390/7 in 94 overs

    Ashwin to bowl his 26th. A wide ball is cut by Hartley to deep point and that brings up the fifty partnership between the pair. Pope pushes a full one to the bowlers left and sets off for a single. England’s lead touches 200.

  • January 28, 2024 10:31
    ENG 388/7 in 93 overs

    Ashwin beats Pope all ends up but the ball races past the keeper for four more byes. Partnership nearing 50 now.

    Siraj comes in for his first spell off the day. Three runs from the over. 

    First instance of Ashwin and Jadeja both conceding 100 runs in the second innings of a Test in India. Pope and the others have managed to counter India’s main strike bowlers!

  • January 28, 2024 10:26
    ENG 375/7

    New ball hasn’t stopped the ease at which England is scoring runs. Nine runs in the last two overs. India awaits a magic ball. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:21
    ENG 366/7

    India takes the new ball in the 89th over. Jadeja bowls first with it. However, not much has changed. Batting hasn’t been tough today and England take out five runs off the over including a boundary. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:10
    ENG 353/7

    Turns out Jadeja has a change in ends. He replaces Bumrah now. Three runs in that over. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:06
    ENG 350/7

    R Ashwin replaces Jadeja. England takes three runs off that over and goes past 350-run mark. 

  • January 28, 2024 10:04
    ENG 347/7

    England is milking runs off Jadeja and not taking many chances against Bumrah. The lead has gone past 150 now. 

  • January 28, 2024 09:52
    ENG 339/7

    And Bumrah strikes! India’s faith in the old ball pays off. Rehan Ahmed edges one to the keeper. A much-needed breakthrough for the host. England seven down now. Bumrah was taking the ball away from the right handers and finally found the edge. 

  • January 28, 2024 09:46
    ENG 333/6

    India hasn’t taken the new ball yet. Bumrah bowls the 81st over with the old ball in search of reverse swing on offer. Pope and Rehan playing at ease. 

  • January 28, 2024 09:33
    ENG 324/6

    Jasprit Bumrah from the other end. Hint of a reverse for Bumrah. Pope takes a single and gets to his 150 in 212 balls. Terrific innings this. Overpitched and driven. Three runs off that shot.

    ENG 318/6
