    STUMPS, DAY 3 - England 67/1, needs 332 more to win

    England chops off 67 runs off the massive 399 target that stood in front of it. Ben Duckett and Zak Crawley were off in their usual fashion and played their shots. Ravichandran Ashwin was called in to break their partnership and he did so with the help of a sharp catch from Bharat to remove Duckett. Rehan Ahmed did his job as night watchman and he will walk out with Crawley to push England closer to a victory and a 2-0 lead.

  • February 04, 2024 16:44
    ENG 67/1 in 14 overs

    Axar Patel in to bowl the final over of the day. Rehan Ahmed faces him. Makes room and cuts him away for one run. Crawley gets a single drive to cover. FOUR! Rehan charges down but it is only an inside edge that flies past mid wicket. Edged and FOUR! A wild slash which runs wide of the slip fielder. 

  • February 04, 2024 16:41

    ENG 53/1 in 12 overs

    Kuldeep to Crawley, the ball turns into the right hander, takes his gloves and runs down to fine leg, allowing the batters to collect two runs. Another single off the fourth ball makes it three runs in the over.

  • February 04, 2024 16:32
    ENG 50/1 in 11 overs

    Ashwin comes into the attack. And the reverse sweep is out from Duckett. He is not quite in control but still gets the boundary. WICKET! Ashwin gets Duckett. He leans in for a defence but an inside edge onto the pads throws the ball up in the air. Bharat with a dive gets under it.

  • February 04, 2024 16:19
    ENG 39/0 in 8 overs

    FOUR! Duckett continues to attack Kuldeep. Slog sweeps a full one, there is a deep square leg for that shot but this one beats him. Duckett rocks on the back foot and glides it away to fine leg for two.

  • February 04, 2024 16:18
    ENG 33/0 in 7 overs

    Mukesh to Duckett now. Swipes the second delivery to fine leg for a run, it is a No Ball too. Crawley shuffles across to work a ball towards the on side but gets it on the pad. Half an appeal from India which does not take long to die down. FOUR! Crawley makes use of the full length and leans in for an on-drive. Another boundary! On the pads and Crawley flicks it away through mid wicket.

  • February 04, 2024 15:55

  • February 04, 2024 15:27

    Ashwin smacks Rehan for a SIX and a four to get India’s lead close to 400. Not a lot of run scoring opportunities coming but Ashwin cashing in on everything that he thinks he can hit. 

  • February 04, 2024 15:17
    IND 244/8 in 75 overs

    Two runs in the last two overs. Rehan and Hartley have been bowling tight lines, not allowing any of the batter to open the arms. 

  • February 04, 2024 15:09
    IND 242/8 in 73 overs

    Ashwin has found two balls and he smacked it for four and a double on that. Runs aren’t coming that easy for India now. Bumrah and Ashwin happy to defend though. 

  • February 04, 2024 14:58
    IND 233/8 in 70 overs

    Evening session

    KS Bharat and R Ashwin come out to bat with an aim of taking India’s innings till tomorrow. India leads by 370 runs. England requires four more wickets. Will they be able to bat today? 

  • February 04, 2024 14:14
    TEA - India 227/6; leads by 370 runs

    India has pulled ahead in the contest courtesy of the century from Shubman Gill. Axar Patel played a vital 45-run innings too as the duo built up a partnership worth 89 runs. But their wickets in quick succession has given England a glimmer of hope. How much further can India take this lead to is now upto Bharat and Ashwin.

  • February 04, 2024 14:11
    IND 227/6 in 64 overs

    Hartley to bowl. FOUR! Finally a boundary for Bharat. He gets to the pitch and punches down through mid on and beats the fielder. 

  • February 04, 2024 14:07
    IND 222/6 in 63 overs

    Bharat might be in trouble. Rehan bowls a wrong one and strikes Bharat on the pad. The DRS shows the turn takes it down the leg stump. Another maiden over.

    IND 222/6 in 62 overs

  • February 04, 2024 13:54
    IND 220/6 in 58 overs

    The runs drying up since the fall of the wicket. Bharat not willing to do anything other than blocking off the deliveries. Axar Patel too resorting to a similar approach. He might be in trouble, he misses his swipe off a delivery which keeps low. The umpire denies the appeals but England has gone up. The DRS shows three reds and Axar has to walk bat.

  • February 04, 2024 13:43
    IND 218/5 in 57 overs

  • February 04, 2024 13:38
    IND 211/5 in 56 overs

    GILL DEPARTS! He perishes trying to reverse sweep Bashir. Misses the shot and takes the glove for Foakes to pouch it. England reviews the on-field call and gets the decision. A big wicket for Stokes and his side.

    Shubman Gill c Foakes b Bashir 104 (147)

  • February 04, 2024 13:33
    IND 209/4 in 55 overs

    FOUR! Axar Patel spots Ben Stokes come up from the usual mid on spot and he charges down against Rehan to tonk the ball through the region. The ball did not beat the England skipper by much.

    IND 201/4 in 52 overs

    Bashir to Gill, two runs with a clip to deep square leg. That’s the 200 for India. HUNDRED! A tap to deep square leg again. Gill has his moment in the spotlight. He breaks the 12-inning century drought. And it could not have come at a better time. He gets to it in 132 balls.

  • February 04, 2024 13:05
    IND 186/4 in 49 overs

  • February 04, 2024 12:58
    IND 183/4 in 47 overs

    The pitch is still good enough to bat long here. Gill and Axar playing comfortably. 

  • February 04, 2024 12:49

    And the 300-run lead comes up for India in style! SIX over long off against Rehan. He follows it with a slog sweep for four towards backward square leg. And another boundary, this time from the right of mid-on. 14 runs from the over. 

  • February 04, 2024 12:34
    IND 151/4 in 40 overs

  • February 04, 2024 12:23
    IND 145/4 in 38 overs

    Right, so Anderson is bowling in by hiding the shine of the ball. England expecting the ball to reverse at this stage. Not much movement right now though. Just a single in that over.

  • February 04, 2024 12:14
    Afternoon session

    Anderson begins the proceedings. Gill and Axar have a task on their hands. India effectively 273/4 at the start of this session. How much more can they add?

  • February 04, 2024 11:35
    LUNCH - India 130/4, leads by 273 runs

    102 runs at the expense of four wickets. England session! James Anderson started with his usual best, swinging and moving the ball to get Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal. It was then the rebuild by Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill that got India’s run rate going, taking the lead past 200. But Ben Stokes pulled off a blinder to remove Iyer before Hartley accounted for debutant Patidar and swing the match wide open once again.

  • February 04, 2024 11:20
    IND 126/4 in 33 overs

    Four singles in the Hartley over. Axar Patel gets off the mark too. Rehan Ahmed then follows with a maiden over. Axar has a favourable match up against the leg spinner, but given the flurry of wickets, he decides to play it safe.

  • February 04, 2024 11:12
    IND 122/4 in 31 overs

    FOUR! Rehan again misses the length. It is pitched short which allows Patidar to free his arms and cut it away. His first boundary of the innings. OUT! Patidar is gone! He gets a faint inside edge and Ben Foakes pulls off another low catch.

    IND 96/2 in 24 overs

    FOUR! Iyer picks up an over-pitched delivery from Hartley and glides it through the on side with brilliant use of his wrists. Runs starting to flow now. Taps the final ball down to long off for a single.

    IND 91/2 in 23 overs

    Three singles from Hartley’s over.

  • February 04, 2024 10:39
    IND 79/2 in 21 overs

    Gill and Iyer getting the field placing to pick singles at will. They’re simply knocking the ball around and rotating strike. Four runs from this Bashir over.

  • February 04, 2024 10:33
    IND 75/2 in 20 overs

    The first thirty minutes of the day belonged to England, but Gill and Iyer have fought back well in the last half hour. India’s scoreboard is ticking now with regular strike rotation and boundaries. India is now 218 runs ahead of England. 

  • February 04, 2024 10:26
    IND 66/2 in 18 overs

    Gill has assumed the aggressor role here. Although he was lucky again as his edge went JUST past the first slip for four. The next ball, he gently guided it towards fine leg for another four. India’s lead has gone past 200 now. 

  • February 04, 2024 10:23
    IND 57/2 in 17 overs

    Indian batters have opened up now. The strike rotation is there and Gill just finished Bashir’s over with a SIX down the ground! 

  • February 04, 2024 10:14
    IND 46/2 in 15 overs

    Shoaib Bashir into the attack. Gill and Iyer have decided to charge Bashir. Both have come down the track in the same over; haven’t able to find the fence though. 

  • February 04, 2024 10:09
    IND 40/2 in 13 overs

    Hartley and Anderson continue to ask questions to Indians. Tight lines. Both Gill and Iyer unable to break free. 

  • February 04, 2024 09:59
    IND 35/2 in 11 overs

    It’s appeal for LBW against Gill again, this time against Anderson. Decision is not out this time. England takes the review. Ball tracking shows umpire’s call and Gill survives again! 

  • February 04, 2024 09:50
    IND 34/2 in 10 overs

    Two right handers in, Tom Hartley is into the attack now. Gill is off the mark with a short-arm jab for four towards midwicket. OUT! Gill is given LBW. He has taken a review, but it is very close. Well, that was a good review in the end, as ultra edge finds an edge off the bat. Gill didn’t know. He took a while to take that review. 

  • February 04, 2024 09:45
    IND 30/2 in 9 overs

    And another! Anderson strikes again and this time its Jaiswal who has to walk back. Bait delivery, driving length, Jaiswal went for it, gets the edge straight to slips. India two down very early in the morning. 

    Yashasvi Jaiswal c Root b Anderson 17. Shreyas Iyer in at number four.

  • February 04, 2024 09:33
    IND 29/1

    James Anderson from the other end. WOW! Rohit Sharma is gone! Beauty by Anderson and the off stump goes cartwheeling. Angling in, seams away, Rohit plays line and ball goes past outside edge and crashes into the stump. 

    Rohit Sharma b Anderson 13. Shubman Gill walks in.

  • February 04, 2024 09:31
    IND 28/0 in 6 overs

    All set

    Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma walk into bat. England begins with spin: Joe Root. 

  • February 04, 2024 09:23
    Day 3 pitch report

    Overnight dew on top of the surface, says Eoin Morgan. Dinesh Karthik reckons cracks have expanded and pitch will start playing tricks slowly. 

  • February 04, 2024 09:20
    Bumrah on pitch yesterday

    “The wicket is not doing a lot. There’s no demons in the wicket. Yes, the odd ball might turn, yes the odd ball might swing. Even with the new ball, nothing much was happening. It felt like you’d rather bowl with the older ball than the new ball. But I feel the wicket is really good.”

  • February 04, 2024 09:08
    What’s to look forward to today?

    - India’s batting. It hasn’t really come alive apart from individual performances. Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, and Shreyas Iyer have an opportunity to get back into groove. Till the end of day 2, pitch has been pretty decent to bat. 

    - Which brings us to our next point: pitch. Coming into third day, expect the pitch to become slightly slow and aid more turn. It has already shown signs with irregular bounce in some areas. 

    - England will aim India’s lead doesn’t go past 350 since it has to bat last on this pitch. Expect extended spells from Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley. 

  • February 04, 2024 08:31
    Day 2 summary

    - Yashasvi Jaiswal scores a double hundred; India adds 60 runs and finishes the innings at 396. 

    - England starts well and was 114/1 at one point. Jasprit Bumrah takes six, Kuldeep Yadav picks three after Axar Patel gave breakthrough. England bowled out for 253. 

    - Bumrah completes 150 Test wickets in the process. 

    - India bats again, plays five overs adding 28 more to the 143-run lead and is effectively 171/0 starting today. 

  • February 04, 2024 08:17
    In case you forgot.. Jaiswal scored a double ton too yesterday!

    IND vs ENG: Jaiswal scores double hundred, 3rd youngest Indian to record 200

    At 22 years and 37 days, Jaiswal is only behind Vinod Kambli and Sunil Gavaskar on the list of youngest double centurions for India.
