    ALL OVER! England win by 118 runs. James Anderson picks up WICKET no. 564. What a handsome win for the home team. Alastair Cook walks out to a standing ovation. The Indians are out there shaking hands with the great man.

    OUT! Ishant Sharma is caught behind. Jadeja stranded at the other end. England just two away from win and there are 16 overs left. Mohammed Shami is not your man to block, but he will have to if India are to manage a miraculous escape here.

    OUT! That surely is it. Pant departs. Holes out to Moeen Ali at long off. Goes for 114 but what an innings it has been. With Rahul, he raised hopes of an improbable India win. But it was always going to be a tough task. Anyway, well played Pant. England now just THREE wickets away from victory.

    OUT! At last, a wicket arrives for England. KL Rahul is the man to go, one short of 150. It required a monster ball to get rid of him. Rashid pitched it into the rought and ball spun sharply to hit the off stump. Was this the opening England needed? How will Pant react. India’s next man in is Ravindra Jadeja. Another 86 from him will surely get India home. Could it be done?

    The final session resumes. India, needing 166, have started off with another six from Pant. This is soon going to turn into T20 batting. Stay close folks. This Test match is heading towards an exciting finish.

    What a compliment to get!

    Tea has been taken on the final day with India on 298/5, 166 runs away from the target. A wicketless session for India. Tremendous stuff.

    Maiden Test ton for RIshabh Pant. Gets there with a six. What an innings. India are motoring along here.

  • 7:46 PM IST

    Rahul is approaching 150, whereas Pant has entered the 80s. Will it be a maiden Test century for the 20-year-old?

  • 7:45 PM IST

    Well well well. What do we have here. We may still be away from the conclusion but is the possibility of an Indian win lurking here? The partnership between Rahul and Pant has surpassed 150 and India need another 190 to wn. They are scoring at over 4 in this session and England are just beginning to get a little frustrated here. Anyway, here are James Anderson and Stuart Broad back to make something happen.
