Nagpur: Dec 16, 2012

India will be desperate for quick wickets in England’s second eassy in the post lunch session of the fourth and final Test match at Nagpur.

India managed just 29 runs in an hour before declaring their first innings at 326/9, which left them four runs behind England, in a display of bizarre tactics on the fourth day of the fourth and final cricket Test.

The hosts, replying to the visitors’ first innings score of 330 and resuming at the overnight 297 for 8, lost one more wicket — that of no. 10 batsman Ojha for 3 — before applying closure to their innings.

Ojha, who had replaced Piyush Chawla after the latter was dismissed in the last over last evening, played on to left arm spinner Monty Panesar at the score of 317.

Ravichandran Ashwin remained unbeaten on 29, by adding 22 runs to his overnight score, off 65 balls and last man Ishant Sharma remained unbeaten on 2 after a 12-minute vigil.

Brief Scores: England 330 (Kevin Pietersen 73, Joe Root 73, Matt Prior 57, Graeme Swann 56; Piyush Chawla 4 for 69, Ishant Sharma 3 for 49) & 17 for no loss (Nick Compton 14*, Alastair Cook 1*) lead India 326 for 9 dec. (Virat Kohli 103, MS Dhoni 99; James Anderson 4 for 81, Graeme Swann 3 for 76) by 13 runs
