India vs England 2014, Day 4 of 3rd Test at Southampton: Joe Root says England are ready for final victory push

Joe Root believes early wickets on day five will be key to England’s victory push against India in the third Investec Test at the Ageas Bowl. He also expressed joy at the “good day” his side experienced and was also confident that they can take the six remaining Indian wickets on day five of the third cricket Test here. Chasing 445 runs, the visitors were placed in a precarious position of 112 for four at stumps on day four.

“It was one of the better days for us. You want to have such days as a team. We took two early wickets and then Alastair Cook set up the game for us with his second innings’ fifty. He drove the pace down to the tee and we were hoping for one last good session tonight. We wanted a couple wickets before stumps but we got four wickets. We are pleased to make inroads into that top order. It is good to see a lot of guys in form. James Anderson took a fiver here, Stuart Broad bowled well, Ian Bell scored a big hundred, Gary Ballance got one too. Cook has got fifties in both innings. Everyone has contributed throughout the game and it has been a good team effort,” said Root.
