Murali Vijay en route his 136 versus England IANS

India scored over hundred runs every session on Day Three, revived themselves from a minor collapse, and ended the day s play with a crucial lead against England in the fourth Test at Mumbai. Murali Vijay slammed his eighth Test century, while Virat Kohli raced to 147 not out, shattering far too many records. Jayant Yadav remained unbeaten on 86-ball 30. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid bowled most of the overs for England, but gave away 291 runs out of India s end of day total of 451 for 7. Let us take a look at the highlights from an intriguing day s play at Wankhede Stadium:

An early blow: India entered the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday morning wanting to carry on in the same passion from where they left on Day Two, but they suffered a massive blow early on. Cheteshwar Pujara might have been in red-hot form, but you never know, along the way what pops up to pull you down. This time, an old unwanted habit of getting bowled came to the fore when Pujara, shouldering a regulation delivery from Jake Ball, saw the ball crashing into his wickets. It was only the second ball of the day, England were elated, and India s sturdy stand for the second wicket remained at 107. England were on cloud nine after that wicket, but little did they know what the monster walking in next would do to them for the rest of the day.

Murali Vijay s century: We will talk about Virat Kohli the monster later. This is about Vijay, who, had so far in his career, gone at least 5 barren Tests between each of his centuries. He made one in the first Test, but the slump in form in the next three resulted in some questions being asked. And for the first time, Vijay responded sooner than what the trend has been. His first scoring shot in the day was a six over Moeen Ali s head, dancing down the wicket. Vijay continued to attack England bowlers, especially their spinners. Vijay made 136 and fell to Adil Rashid, not before plundering 40 runs off the leg-spinner. Moeen was not spared either; Vijay scored 58 off 110 balls he faced from the off-spinner. This was Vijay’s second hundred in the series, and third overall versus England.

India s collapse: When Vijay fell after a strong 116-run stand, Karun Nair walked in at No. 5. It was a perfect opportunity for Nair to make most of the opportunity, but he missed out. Nair fell to Moeen for 13, and soon, Indian lower-middle order collapsed. Parthiv Patel hung around for a while scoring 15, but the unluckiest was Ravichandran Ashwin. The right-hander was dismissed in a bizarre manner: a flick to the leg side went straight into the waist of the lanky Keaton Jennings, fielding at short leg. The fielder did not have to recover to collect the ball, as it got stuck between his two elbows and the waist. The soft signal was out, and after a brief intervention of third umpire requested by Ashwin, he walked back.

The ineffable Virat Kohli: The Indian captain walked out in the first over of the day, and remained unbeaten thereafter. He cheered for Vijay when the opener got to his eighth Test ton, and quietly, he moved on to his half-century. Post lunch, he lost Vijay, and soon there was a collapse which handed England all the advantage. Kohli watched helplessly as Karun Nair, Parthiv and Ashwin fell in quick succession; and he was visibly livid when Ravindra Jadeja threw away his wicket when India were still close to 40 runs behind.

If given a choice, Kohli would even have batted from both the ends and defied England. He remained the epitome for everyone out there, completing his second century of the career and 15th overall. There were other records as well: Kohli completed 4,000 runs in Test career, and became the third Indian cricketer and second captain ever after Sachin Tendulkar (1997) and Rahul Dravid (2006) to score 1,000 runs in a calendar year.

When Jadeja came in to bat after Ashwin fell for his third duck in Test career, Kohli wanted the all-rounder to bat the way he did at Mohali. However, Kohli was left fuming when Jadeja fell for a poor shot. In came Jayant Yadav, whose patience is as vast as sea. Jayant dug in too, and soon, by the end of day, Kohli steered India right back on top with a 51 run lead.

Adil Rashid s gift: He is England s best bowler on this tour so far in terms of wickets taken, but Rashid has given away at least 100 runs every time in this series when he has taken two or more wickets. On Saturday, he kept bowling outside leg for a very long time, and Kohli scored plenty of boundaries off them. Those deliveries outside leg, at a time when India were looking to revive themselves from a collapse, were nothing less than a gift. Rashid has so far bowled 44 overs, off which India have scored 152 runs.
