It was a session that summed up the Test match. For a moment, you may have felt that England were in control, but then India would hit back. But, one would say that India are in control having set England a target of 319. At tea, England are 18 for one, having lost the wicket of Sam Robson just before the break.

The star of the session was undoubtely Ravindra Jadeja. His combative knock of 68 followed by the wicket of Robson has put India in this position. India started this session at 267 for seven. Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar were batting then and were trying to extend India’s challenge. And, they put up a spirited stand with Jadeja playing a very aggressive knock. He raced to his fifty off 42 balls and continued to attack.

Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar was solid and played some classical shots, to continue from where he left in previous knocks. Jadeja, was dismissed for 68 when he top edged a pull and was taken. Bhuvneshwar went on to get his fifty and then they were bowled out for 342.

England then started their run-chase of 319. If they get there, it would be their second highest successful run-chase. However, they went in at the loss of Robson as he was trapped leg-before by Jadeja. Gary Ballance and the under pressure Alastair Cook are in the centre.

Brief scores:

India 295 (Ajinkya Rahane 103, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 36; James Anderson 4 for 60, Stuart Broad 2 for 79, Ben Stokes 2 for 40) and 342 (Murali Vijay 95, Cheteshwar Pujara 43, Ravindra Jadeja 68, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 52; Liam Plunkett 3 for 65, Ben Stokes 3 for 51, Moeen Ali 2 for 28) lead England 319 (Gary Ballance 110, Liam Plunkett 55*; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 6 for 82, Ravindra Jadeja 2 for 46) and 18 for 1 (Jadeja 1 for 2) by 300 runs.
