Ravindra Jadeja won the exchanges with James Anderson, hammering his nemesis for a boundary and then just when he was looking set, Jadeja played a terrible shot and edged the ball to Chris Jordan at slip. The England pacer used his long hands to full effect as he pounced on the catch to give Moeen Ali his 18th wicket of the series. Ajinkya Rahane, after being heckled by Moeen Ali earlier on departed in a tame fashion. India’s batting lynchpin in this series so far was under considerable pressure and chipped the ball straight to the bowler and Moeen Ali had taken two wickets in two overs. India are in dire straits at the moment.

A couple of overs ago, Gautam Gambhir and Cheteshwar Pujara grew into the game with a few good strokes which yielded boundaries square of the wicket. Moeen Ali’s ineffective over saw Gambhir sweep behind square for  a boundary before James Anderson induced an edge of a wide delivery down the leg-side and was pouched by Jos Buttler. Pujara was just beginning to look good before Moeen Ali trapped him in front. Hawk-eye though suggested that the ball would go on to miss the stumps and Pujara had a bemused look on his face

India lost the wicket of opener Murali Vijay for 18 just before Tea on Day Three of the fourth Test against England at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday. Both batsmen were out early in the first innings but this time around they had fought hard to avoid unnecessary errors. India were off to a cautious start against England in their second innings. Anderson and Chris Woakes started the proceedings for England as Stuart Broad was unavailable due to injury. India were four for no loss after five overs.

England are missing their lead pacer Stuart Broad who went back retired hurt after being hit on the forehead while batting in the first innings earlier in the day.
