After tea, Gary Ballance and Alastair Cook were solid and batted well. Jadeja kept asking them questions as the edges went past the fielders. It was quite bizarre to see that Dhoni had gone back to Jadeja. He wasn’t standing upfront as usual. It was almost as if a medium-pacer was bowling. Ishant Sharma then had his say when he bowled Ian Bell for a single in the next over. The ball had kept very low and Bell was castled as a result. Ishant wasn’t done there as he came from round the wicket to Cook a little later and he edged one to Dhoni. India were in firm command with England at 74 for four.

 

Moeen Ali then joined Joe Root. Though they had a few problems, they safely saw England through to stumps. Moeen is lucky to be out there as Jadeja had trapped him plumb in front, but Kumar Dharmasena gave it not out.  India would look to bowl England out as early as possible and register their first win in the ongoing Test series.
