    And that’s stump. Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings go unscathed taking England to 23/0. England still 498 runs adrift of the target and they have two full days to have a crack at the total. India have two full days to bowl out England. Highest total ever to be chased at Trent Bridge is 287 so India bowling out England seems to be the liekly outcome. Virat Kohl once again led from the front with 103. That’s 200 run in the Test, the second time he has managed in the series. Cheteshwar Pujara was back in the thick of runs scoring 72. Hardik Panbdya made 52 to go with his five-for in yesterday.

    Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings ahve survived most of the that testing session. Six overs done and they are 20 for no loss. Target of 521 is still a long long long way away

    And it finally comes – the declaration at 352/7. India set a massive 521-run target for England. Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings – both low on confidence, low on runs, dropped catches – have a tough one hour’s play to survive.

    50! for Hardik Pandya, what a game he is having and off the next ball Mohammed Shami is holed out at cow corner and India still in the middle batting. Lead is 517 now

    And with SIX Hardik Pandya takes India’s lead past the 500-run mark yet they continue to bat. Pandya is on 44. Maybe waiting for his fifty. India 340/6

    WICKET! Top delivery from Adil Rashid, googly and Ajinkya Rahane misses it completely. He was on the back foot and tried to guide it to the third man boundary but the ball spins away past Rahane’s bat and on to the stumps. India 329/6, leady by 497 runs

India are aiming to keep the series alive

When India surrendered their last five wickets for 22 runs to be bowled out for 329 during the morning session of day two at Trent Bridge, it still felt like a very good total. When Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings reeled off 46 in nine overs before lunch, it felt like India could potentially let the advantage slip.

From 54 without loss, however, England crashed to 161 in one session to hand India a match-winning lead, thanks to Hardik Pandya’s maiden five-wicket haul in Tests – all in six overs, on the trot – and Rishabh Pant, who became the first Indian wicketkeeper to hold five catches in the first innings of his debut Test. With the freedom to attack after India gained a lead of 168, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul freed their arms and the result was two fifty-plus opening stands in the same Test in England since 1986.

By stumps, India’s lead had swelled to 292 with Cheteshwar Pujara batting on 33, his best contribution of the series, and Virat Kohli on 8. A 16-wicket day proved utterly enthralling, as has been the template all series
