India, who looked set on Day Three heading for 98 for 3 with Virat Kohli’s fifty, was seen shaken by England bowlers on Day Four morning at Visakhapatnam. Kohli, who raced to his 13th fifty was gone for 81, disabling him from reaching his century. Adil Rashid was spot on his with delivery and got his second wicket with a sensational catch by Ben Stokes at slips once again. Kohli and Stokes go hand-in-hand as he was the one who caught Kohli in the previous innings for 167. Previously, Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for 22, failing to provide any impetus for India from the precarious condition they were in. Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 2nd Test at Vizag

Stuart Broad, who was injured and stayed away from game on Day Three, was back stronger as he got Ravichandran Ashwin, Wriddhiman Saha and Rahane in quick succession. India who entered at 98 for 3, were stuttering at 134 for 6 in no time. Kohli was the only hope to save India from this shackle, however, with fall of Kohli it all dropped down to newbie Jayant Yadav and India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. But Rashid joined the league of maximum wickets and also got Jadeja to to bring India near to their end. Rashid was on a roll as he got yet another wicket of new batsman on crease Umesh Yadav who had the potential to score big runs.

India are now leading by 362 runs and will atleast want to the innings with target of 400 against England. They do have lower-order batsmen with Mohammed Shami and Jayant still present on the crease, who was composed and gritty with his knock in the first innings.

If they do go beyond 400-run mark, the visitors do have strong players on their side with captain Alastair Cook, Joe Root, Moeen Ali who can pose threat.
