Kolkata: Dec 8, 2012

India trail by a further 121 runs in the second innings as openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir provided India a steady start in their second innings, scoring 86 for no loss at lunch on the fourth day of the Kolkata Test against England on Saturday.

At 509 for 6, and 193 runs ahead of the Indians, England seem to be in a position where they cannot lose the match, while the hosts need to gear up for a grim fight for survival. With the four-match series now locked at 1-1, the winner at Eden Gardens will take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the four-match series.

Matt Prior (40) and Graeme Swann (21), who so far have stitched together 56 runs, were at the crease at the close of play.

Cook (190) fell ten short of his third double hundred when he was run out for the first time in Tests, and that too in a bizarre manner. The left hander took evasive action and the ball hit the stumps while he still was away from the crease. The incident brought some cheers for the home crowd who had nothing much to applause till the dismissal.

Buoyed by the return of Cook – the highest run getter in the series so far – the Indians bowled well and tasted success, taking three English wickets.

Ian Bell (5) edged Ishant Sharma behind the wicket, Mumbai Test Man of the Match Kevin Pietersen (54) was trapped in front by offie Ravichandran Ashwin after completing a half century, while Virender Sehwag juggled before latching on to a thick edge offered by Samit Patel (33) off Pragyan Ojha.

Brief Scores: India 316 (Sachin Tendulkar 76, MS Dhoni 52; Monty Panesar 4 for 90, James Anderson 3 for 89) & 86 for no loss (Virender Sehwag 49*, Gautam Gambhir 33*) trail England 523 (Alastair Cook 190, Jonathan Trott 66, Kevin Pietersen 54, Matt Prior 41; Pragya Ojha 4 for 142, Ravichandran Ashwin 2 for 183) by 121 runs.
