    One brings two! Jasprit Bumrah livens this up. He traps Jos Buttler in front with a delivery that came back in, Buttler offered no shot. England took the review but it was the umpire’s call and Buttler walked back after a magnificent 106 off 176 delvieries. Then off the next ball, Burmah beat Jonny Bairstow all ends up. The ball was angled in, Bairstow lined up, but the ball straightened after pitching and rattled the off stump. England 231/6

    100! And he gets there in style! Maiden ton in Tests for Jos Buttler and what a time to get it. A special knock by a special player. Justifying his selection in the team. Shami provides a gift to help him get to that milestone. On the pads, Buttler flicks it through square leg and the ball races away. He takes his helmet off, raises his bat and soaks the applause from the crowd and his teammates. Also, Virat Kohli is seen clapping for him, good gesture from the Indian skipper

  • 7:43 PM IST

    Good shout by India. Ravichandran Ashwin operating round the wicket to left-handed Ben Stokes gets the ball to drift in, Stokes is beaten in the flight as the ball thuds on to the pads. Huge appeal, but umpire Chris Gaffeney stands his ground. India take the review. Impact is in line, but the ball is shown to be drifting down and umpire’s call on to the stumps. Stokes survives, and India keep their review as well. England 154/4

  • 7:31 PM IST

    Talk about battling it out. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes have done exactly that. Great resliance from the duo and the best part is that they have not been bogged down. Runs have been scored at a decent pace. Jos Buttler moves to 46 off 84 balls, Ben Stokes is on 33 off 85 balls. England 143/4

  • 7:10 PM IST

    Jasprit Burmah in a middle of a terrific spell. He has induced three edges of Jos Buttler, two dropped short of the slip cordon, one goes between the gap of slips and gully. Buttler who had looked assured, looking nervous now. But he is still in the middle. England 124/4

  • 7:02 PM IST

    100 up for England as Ben Stokes creams one straight down the ground off Ishant Sharma. England 102/4. Credit to Stokes and Buttler for they have not gone in to a shell in order to save the game.

  • 6:11 PM IST

India vs England, 3rd Test, Day 4
England have a tough task at hand

Hello and welcome to our live coverage from the fourth day’s play of the third Test between India and England at Trent Bridge.

Virat Kohli’s 103 off 197 deliveries, his fourth-slowest century in an overall tally of 23 from 118 innings, was the bedrock on which India marched to 352/7 declared on day three at Trent Bridge, and with it a lead of 520.

Having strode to the crease on the second afternoon, Kohli batted through the first and second sessions on Monday, adding 113 in 50 overs with Cheteshwar Pujara and taking India’s lead to the doorstep of 450 before he was fourth out. This was an unreal exhibition of batting from the batsman who four years ago averaged 13.40 in ten Test innings against England, and has put, with Pujara’s cussed 72 and Hardik Pandya’s run-a-ball 52 not out, India on course to obliterate England.

In the nine overs they had to bat before stumps, Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings took England to 23 without loss.
