Welcome to Sportstar’s HIGHLIGHTS of Day 4 of the 2nd Test match between India and England being played in Visakhapatnam.

    WTC 2023-25 Points Table

    WTC 2023-25 Points Table after NZ vs SA 1st Test: New Zealand jumps to top spot, India in 3rd place

    India also defeated England in the second Test match in Visakhapatnam and picked up its third win of the WTC 2023-25 cycle.

  • February 05, 2024 14:17

    The series is all square at 1-1. A result was expected by the end of Day 4 and we it inside two sessions. England did not give up till the final delivery. Tom Hartley and Ben Foakes put in a last-ditch effort to get it closer but Jasprit Bumrah was in sizzling form and came through for India.

  • February 05, 2024 14:14
    ENG 292 all out

    Bumrah gets the final wicket! The delivery moves away slightly after pitching and that is enough to beat the bat of Hartley and crash into the stumps.

    Tom Hartley b Bumrah 36 (47)

  • February 05, 2024 14:13
    ENG 291/9 in 69 overs

    Ashwin comes back to the attack in search of his 500th wicket. Anderson’s reverse sweeps entice the idea but does not quite come through for the off spinner. His length off the final delivery is too short and Hartley cracks it away through point.

  • February 05, 2024 14:03
    ENG 285/9 in 68 overs

    Mukesh gets his man! Shoaib Bashir gets a faint edge and Bharat completes the catch. 

    Shoaib Bashir c Bharat b Mukesh 0 (8)

    James Anderson is the final batter for England. He plays an on drive to pick a boundary of the final delivery. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:54
    ENG 279/8 in 66 overs

    Mukesh concedes four byes down leg. The very next ball he beats the outside edge of Hartley. India even goes up thinking there was a noise but no spike shows up on the UltraEdge and Hartley continues. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:43
    ENG 275/8 in 65 overs

    Foakes throws his arms at a wide delivery from Bumrah, gets an edge and sees it sneak between gully and second slip. WICKET! Caught and bowled! Ben Foakes with the softest of dismissals one can see. He taps it straight back to the bowler and Bumrah makes no mistake. It was the slower delivery that induced the mistake.

    Ben Foakes c & b Bumrah 36 (69)

  • February 05, 2024 13:35
    ENG 269/7 in 63 overs

    Hartley is given! He goes for a reverse sweep but the ball pops up into the air off his arm and Rohit dives in to take the catch. He goes up for a DRS and the UltraEdge shows it did not take a glove on its way. Now there is some controversy here too. The third umpire checks for an LBW as well but with an umpire’s call of ‘Not Out’. It is the umpire’s call that saves him. Rohit is a little confused as to why the on-field call was put as ‘Not Out’ instead of ‘Out’ for the leg-before check. He has a word with the umpire and the decision is finally is overturned. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:29
    ENG 261/7 in 62 overs

    Hartley goes to defend a delivery from Kuldeep but gets an edge. It keeps very low and sneaks underneath Rohit at first slip and runs all the way to the fence.

  • February 05, 2024 13:21
    ENG 254/7 in 60 overs

    Kuldeep to continue. Hartley cuts and manages to beat the fielder at backward point. A single off the final delivery makes it seven runs from the over. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:18
    ENG 247/7 in 59 overs

    Ashwin’s wait for the 500th wicket goes on. Hartley nearly has his off stump crashed when the ball grips and leaves the bat. Two runs from the over.

  • February 05, 2024 13:12
    ENG 245/7 in 58 overs

    Kuldeep keeps the attack on stumps. Runs are coming in for England but only three wickets left for them to play. Still 154 to win. India has gained an advantage in the first hour of this session. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:07
    ENG 242/7

    Ashwin to Hartley, an appeal for LBW but umpire says not out. Ashwin is interested and convinces Rohit for a review. Close call as it seems ball is clipping pads first but ultra edge doesn’t show any spike. Not out. Hartley then charges down the track and hits him for four towards long on. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:03
    ENG 238/7 in 56 overs

    Foakes still in the mood to take the game deep. But Kuldeep bowls a half-volley on the pads and he gets an opportunity to slog sweep it for a SIX. 

  • February 05, 2024 13:00
    ENG 232/7 in 55 overs

    What will Foakes do now? Well for Tom Hartley, its still an opportunity to flex his muscles as he steps down the track and hits Ashwin for a SIX over long on. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:50
    ENG 220/7 in 53 overs

    And there’s run out appeal and Indians are celebrating! Quick run, direct hit, and Stokes is GONE! Shreyas Iyer is the man behind the throw from short midwicket. Replays show Stokes running casually from the non-strikers’ end. 

    Ben Stokes run out (Iyer) 11

  • February 05, 2024 12:46
    ENG 217/6 in 52 overs

    Foakes and Stokes are in block mode currently. Still very much achievable target for England from here. One of these two will need to stay till the end. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:42
    ENG 216/6 in 51 overs

    R Ashwin into the attack now. Two runs off the first over. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:34
    ENG 210/6 in 49 overs

    Bumrah induces a thick outside off Foakes’ bat but it goes in the gap between slips and gully for four. Indian bowlers keeping the batters tentative. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:24
    ENG 203/6 in 47 overs

    Bumrah tries to bring the ball into Foakes, overpitches and gets hit towards midwicket for four. Required runs are now below 200. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:22
    ENG 198/6 in 46 overs

    Kuldeep troubling Stokes by varying pace. There’s a variable bounce in the pitch as well. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:16
    ENG 196/6 in 45 overs

    Bumrah vs Stokes, again. Around the wicket, taking one in, then away from the left hander. Bumrah targeting the cracks around the good length area outside off. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:12
    ENG 195/6 in 44 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav from the other end. Stokes is off the mark with a single. Kuldeep right on the money, challenging both the edges. 

  • February 05, 2024 12:10
    ENG 194/6 in 43 overs

    Ben Foakes is the new man in. Ben Stokes is yet to face a ball as well. Foakes plays out the remaining two balls of the Bumrah over. 

  • February 05, 2024 11:37
    LUNCH - England 194/6, needs 203 runs to win

    India has come roaring out this morning. It did not seem to be the case with Zak Crawley and Ollie Pope picking up boundaries at will. But Ashwin produced the wickets of Pope and Joe Root in quick time to get India going. Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah then piled the pressure on England by removing Crawley and Jonny Bairstow, respectively2. England lost five wickets in the session and added 127 runs. India now just four wickets away from levelling the series.

  • February 05, 2024 11:26
    ENG 194/6 in 42.4 overs

    Bumrah again. Bairstow is gone! Bunmrah gets another one. The ball nips back in to the right-hander and beats his inside edge. The umpire gives it in India’s favour but Bairstow reviews. The ball-tracker shows it is clipping the leg stump, and Bairstow, with dropped shoulders walks back.

    Jonny Bairstow lbw b Bumrah 26 (36)

  • February 05, 2024 11:19
    ENG 194/5 in 42 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav for the first time on Day 4. Crawley’s expansive sweep thuds into Sarfaraz at short fine which keeps the shot down to a single. CRAWLEY IS GONE! He goes on his backfoot and is done by the turn. The ball looks like it is going down leg and the umpire thinks so to. But India’s review shows the ball going on to hit the leg stump. Crawley cannot quite believe it. Brendan McCullum is checking the replays in the dug out. 

    Zak Crawley lbw b Kuldeep 73 (132)

  • February 05, 2024 11:12
    ENG 192/4 in 41 overs

    Jasprit Bumrah back for another spell. He has two slips and a gully in place for Bairstow. FOUR! Bairstow goes a fraction too full, allowing Bairstow lean in for a cover drive. FOUR again! Square drives this and breaches the rope again.

  • February 05, 2024 11:07
    ENG 184/4 in 39 overs

    Ashiwn to Crawley. FOUR! Right on cue, Crawley uses his feet and drives down the ground to collect another boundary. FOUR! Now Bairstow with a boundary. Slaps this short-length delivery past covers.

  • February 05, 2024 11:03
    ENG 174/4 in 37 overs

    Bairstow cuts the tension building up over the last few overs with a sweep shot for FOUR off Ashwin. Crawley has curbed his instincts a bit and playing to the situation.

  • February 05, 2024 10:56
    ENG 166/4 in 35 overs

    Ashwin beats the outside edge of both Crawley and Bairstow in that over. Both playing for turn only to see the ball go straight. Bharat has a quick shot at a stumping but Crawley’s foot is just about down to keep him safe.

  • February 05, 2024 10:52
    ENG 165/4 in 34 overs

    Bairstow tries to step out against Ashwin but does not quite get a hold of the spin. The ball luckily goes onto his pad and not the keeper.

    FOUR! Bairstow pushes forward and drives Axar through covers. A desperate dive from Mukesh in the deep is not enough to prevent the boundary.

  • February 05, 2024 10:46
    ENG 156/4 in 32 overs

    Jonny Bairstow gets off the mark in this Axar Patel over which gets England just two runs.

  • February 05, 2024 10:41
    ENG 154/4 in 31 overs

    Crawley tucks a delivery angling down leg from Ashwin to fine leg and picks two. GONE! Root perishes trying to tonk the ball over the on side. He gets a leading edge and holes out at short third man.

    Joe Root c Patel b Ashwin 16 (10)

  • February 05, 2024 10:36
    ENG 151/3 in 30 overs

    Root steps out and clears the long off boundary against Axar. This is some serious aggression from Root. He then survives a DRS scare. The ball thuds onto pad before he can get his bat down for the defence. The impact saves him and the on-field call of not out stands.

  • February 05, 2024 10:28
    ENG 140/3 in 29 overs

    OUT! Ashwin strikes for India! Pope departs. Pope goes for a hard push towards off, gets an edge, and Rohit grabs a brilliant reflex catch at first slip. 

    Ollie Pope c Sharma b Ashwin 23

    Joe Root, who injured his finger yesterday, walks into bat at number five. And he hits his first ball for four via reverse sweep!! And another one after a gap of one ball. Eight runs and a wicket in that over. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:26
    ENG 132/2 in 28 overs

    No turn for the spinners so far. Both Pope and Crawley using their feets and sweeps well! Indians unable to control the scoring rate. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:18
    ENG 125/2 in 26 overs

    Fifty for Crawley as he hits Axar over mid off for four! And now Pope sweeps towards square leg for four. And another boundary! Drifting on the pads, Pope just guides it past fine leg. 13 off the over. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:13
    ENG 112/2 in 25 overs

    R Ashwin into the attack for the first time today. Pope charges him and chips the ball JUST wide off the short midwicket fielder. Pope then attempts a reverse sweep, misses it, and Indian fielders appeal for caught behind. But umpire isn’t interested and Rohit doesn’t take a review. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:11
    ENG 109/2 in 24 overs

    Pope takes out his reverse sweep early in his innings and it gets him a boundary as well. Not much turn out there for Axar. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:08
    ENG 105/2 in 23 overs

    A double and that’s 100-up for England. It now requires less than 300 runs to win. Now Crawley pushes Bumrah’s length ball past mid-on for four. 

  • February 05, 2024 10:02
    ENG 99/2 in 22 overs

    Rehan ALMOST edges to the first slip. Rohit Sharma dives to his right but can’t grab the ball and it goes for four! OUT! This time Axar gets it. A quick ball, straight, and Rehan is given LBW. 

    Ollie Pope walks in at number four. Gets off the mark with a four on the first ball. Brilliant drive towards covers. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:57
    ENG 91/1 in 21 overs

    Crawley has tackled Bumrah really well this morning. He’s playing him on the up. Waiting for Bumrah’s full ball. Eight runs from the over. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:54
    ENG 83/1 in 20 overs

    Just one run in the last two overs. Bumrah is consistently hitting the mark around fifth stump on length. Axar isn’t getting any turn so far. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:50
    Update: Shubman Gill not to take field today

    IND vs ENG, 2nd Test Day 4: Shubman Gill not taking field due to finger injury

    Shubman Gill, who score a brilliant hundred in the second innings of the second test against England on Sunday is not fielding today due to a index finger injury.

  • February 05, 2024 09:46
    ENG 82/1 in 18 overs

    Rehan is taking on Axar Patel. Consecutive boundaries: one charging down the track and hit towards midwicket, then a cover drive. Nine runs off the over. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:42
    ENG 73/1 in 17 overs

    Bumrah is right on the money. Testing Crawley’s patience outside off stump; and outside edge as well. Slight full and Crawley latches on to it; four to end the over. Superb drive. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:37
    ENG 69/1 in 16 overs

    Axar Patel from the other end. Rehan tries to loft the first ball he faces and it falls just short of the mid on. Rehan is here with the intention of attacking. Two runs off the over. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:32
    ENG 67/1 in 15 overs

    Jasprit Bumrah to start the day. Bumrah aiming for the crack on length right in front of the Crawley. A maiden. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:29
    All set!

    Indian team in a huddle. R Ashwin is doing the talking today. Crawley and Rehan Ahmed at the crease. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:15
    Day 4 pitch report

    Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan say there are a few huge cracks near middle of the pitch, a few cracks right under the right hander’s eye as well which will interest spinners. 

  • February 05, 2024 09:09
    Shubman Gill on pitch after day 3

    “Not an easy kind of wicket to hit on the rise. Have to apply yourself because the odd one is turning and odd one is keeping low. Morning session will be key. We’ve seen there is moisture in the morning and help for fast bowlers and spinners.” 

  • February 05, 2024 09:06
    What to expect today?

    - A finish. England has made its intentions clear about going hard for the total. Highly unlikely that the game will move to fifth day. 

    - 399 is a big total, and given the slowness of the pitch, won’t be an easy chase. India will start the day as favourites. 

    - Watch out for first 45 minutes, early morning mist troubles the batters here. In all likelihood, Jasprit Bumrah will be bowling the first over the day, or at least the second. If England manages to tackle this phase, match could go very close. 

  • February 05, 2024 08:44
    Day 3 summary

    - India begins at 28/0; effectively 171/0. Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal removed within 20 minutes of start by James Anderson. 

    - Shubman Gill is lucky early in the innings, surviving two LBW calls. Shreyas Iyer departs after a start, Rajat Patidar falls cheaply. 

    - Gill and Axar Patel build the lead. Gill scores Test century after a 12-inning drought. 

    - Tom Hartley picks four as England bowls out India for 255 and set itself a target of 399. 

    - Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett begin well. R Ashwin removes Duckett late in the day. England finishes day at 67/1, needing 332 runs to win. 

  • February 05, 2024 08:26
    Ashwin nears milestone

    While England will attempt a chase of the 399-run target, Ashwin will be eyeing three more wickets to get to 500 wickets in Test cricket. He will be only the second Indian bowler after Anil Kumble to achieve the feat. He already accounted for Ben Duckett and the pitch on the fourth day will be conducive for him to conjure up some magic.

  • February 05, 2024 08:10
    James Anderson on England’s chances

    James Anderson bullish on England’s chances of pulling off record chase on fourth day of Visakhapatnam Test
