Nagpur: Dec 17, 2012

India will be desperate to take quick wickets and push for a win, while England will be aiming for a draw on the final day of the Nagpur Test on Monday.

Earlier on the fourth day, India batted for one hour in the morning before declaring their first innings at 326 for nine, four runs behind England, but could not make sufficient inroads as England reached 161 for three at close of an absorbing fourth day’s play.

The hosts needed quick wickets but the fourth day track at the VCA stadium did not show any signs of deterioration as England batted out the day without seeming to be under any major discomfort.

Trott (66) and Ian Bell (24) were batting at stumps, with England having an overall lead of 165 runs.

With just one day let in the game, a draw appears to be the likely result though all four outcomes, an Indian win, England win, tie and a draw, can still be possible.

India will need to dismiss England as quickly as possible on Monday and score the required runs to entertain hopes of a series-levelling win. England will be quite content with a draw which would be enough to give them their first Test series triumph on Indian soil in 28 years. The David Gower-led England team had last won a series in 1984-85.

Indian captain MS Dhoni kept shuffling his bowlers in a bid to break through the England innings but the English batsmen applied themselves well to keep the hosts at bay, much to the disappointment of a seizable holiday crowd.

Brief Scores: England 330 & 161 for 3 (Jonathan Trott 66*, Nick Compton 34; Ravindra Jadeja 1 for 27, R Ashwin 1 for 34) lead India 326 for 9 dec. (Virat Kohli 103, MS Dhoni 99; James Anderson 4 for 81, Graeme Swann 3 for 76) by 165 runs
