    “Ashwin is an intelligent cricketer. A real boost for Team India.” – Kohli.

  • 10:30 AM IST

    “It was here where we lost our momentum last time and went on to lose the series against England,” says Kohli. “There was bounce. Not many Indian surfaces have that. The turn was low.”

    Kohli praises Vijay and Jayant and goes on to speak about his “focus” and “hunger” to continue scoring.

    Dismal. They have such a long tail. Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match.

  • 10:26 AM IST
    England were 180 for 4 when Ashwin began his spell last evening. He was wicketless and honestly, Jadeja was looking more threatening. Two wickets last night and a terrible show from England’s lower-order handed India the win. Adil Rashid just threw it away. I am surprised that he has 10 First-Class hundreds.

    Cook feels had they taken Jayant Yadav’s catch. Things could have been different.
  • 10:17 AM IST
    India regain the Anthony De Mello Trophy. This is the best bowling figures by a spinner at Wankhede. 12 for 167.

  • 10:14 AM IST
    Ashwin now moves to Chennai. His home.

  • 10:12 AM IST
    Alex Tudor is spot on. But this was a listless show by England on fifth morning. Terrible application.
  • 10:05 AM IST
    …And Ashwin takes a six-for. Anderson flicks in the air and Umesh Yadav takes one at mid-on. Yes, India have won! Sehwag can go home early. India win by an innings and 36 wickets.

    OUT! James Anderson c Umesh Yadav b Ravichandran Ashwin 2 (6)
  • 10:03 AM IST

    R Ashwin has picked up his 24th five-wicket haul and 7th 10-wicket haul. He has joined Barnes, Grimmett, Lillee and Herath. What a bowler!

  • 10:00 AM IST

    Jadeja and Anderson having a chat with James Anderson. You can expect that. Umpires step in. Anderson’s comments after the day’s play yesterday did not please Kohli. Both, Kohli and Ashwin have a history with Anderson.

    Poor application. Rashid hands Ashwin another five-for. Flicks in the air and KL Rahul takes one at deep midwicket.

    OUT! Adil Rashid c KL Rahul b Ravichandran Ashwin 2 (7)
  • 9:54 AM IST
    All hail King Sehwag!

  • 9:51 AM IST
    England 190/8 (52) | Jos Buttler 4 (8), Adil Rashid 0 (1): That’s a strange shot from Buttler. It was another carrom ball, down the leg side, Buttler is almost beaten as he steps out. He manages a one-handed sweep for 2. Fifth ball is a tossed up one, inviting Woakes for a drive and cleaning him up in the process. Any off-spinner would be proud of that.

    OUT! Chris Woakes b Ravichandran Ashwin 0 (6)
  • 9:45 AM IST
    But that is Sehwag!

  • 9:42 AM IST

    It’s a carrom ball, squares Bairstow and strikes his left pad. Review man Bairstow does what is expected out of him, that is reviews. HawkEye shows 3 reds. it’s hitting the off-stump. Bairstow departs. Ashwin gets 3.

    OUT! Jonny Bairstow lbw b Ashwin 51 (107)
  • 9:39 AM IST

    Huge appeal for another bat-pad and that’s off thigh pad. Now Bairstow is given out leg before. Bairstow not surprisingly has reviewed that one 😀

  • 9:36 AM IST

    England 183/6 (49) | Jonny Bairstow 51 (101), Jos Buttler 0 (3): Sir Jadeja to Jonny Bairstow. Straight away turn. Loud appeal but that one pitched outside leg-stump. There’s good amount of turn and Bairstow is in clear discomfort. A run from the last ball.

  • 9:32 AM IST

    Ashwin starts for India. Completes his incomplete over. A slip, leg-slip and short-leg. Starts with sharp turn.

  • 9:29 AM IST
    An Indian win maybe around the corner but don’t forget this! Jos Buttler can well be the Chandimal.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog and updates for the fifth day’s play in the fourth Test between India and England at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. This is Suvajit Mustafi, and I will bring you the live cricket updates from the day’s play. India are on the verge of winning another Test and in turn the series, as England ended Day Four at 182 for 6, still trailing by 49 runs. Responding to England’s first innings total of 400, India scored 631. It was Virat Kohli’s 235 that led India’s reply, and he was well supported by Murali Vijay (136) and Jayant Yadav (104).

Kohli brought up his third double-ton of the year. He has scored a double-ton in the three consecutive series that he has played. First in West Indies, then against New Zealand at Indore and now against England. Prior to this year, Kohli had no double-ton in First-Class cricket. Not only he registered the highest score by an Indian captain but also the highest score by an Indian batsman against England. He broke a plethora of records, bringing India to the brink of another famous victory. India have lost their last two Tests against England at Mumbai, and therefore we can expect a refreshing change in pattern.

However, the other star of the day was Jayant, who is playing only his third Test. The Haryana off-spinner joined Kohli on Day Three at 364 for 7, and went on to add 241 runs for the eighth wicket. This is now the highest eighth-wicket stand in history of Indian cricket and Jayant’s 104 is the highest score by a No. 9 Indian batsman.

“Whenever you’re batting with Virat, things feel easier,” he said after the day’s play before adding that he is happy to continue batting at No. 9.

Later in the day, Jayant went on to claim the wicket of Joe Root, who was looking in a fine touch, scoring a counterattacking 77. Earlier, Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed debutant Keaton Jennings for a golden duck. The first innings centurion was trapped leg-before early in the innings.

Jennings’ opening partner and England skipper once again fell to Jadeja’s trap by playing across. The wicket helped Jadeja complete 100 Test wickets in his 24th Test. He joined the illustrious list of Ryan Harris, Jason Gillespie and Lance Gibbs, and only Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath took a Test lesser to get to the elusive mark.

While Jonny Bairstow continued the resistance, Ravichandran Ashwin went on to claim 2 wickets at the stroke of stumps to bring closer to the winning line. Ashwin now has 243 Test wickets, and has now gone past Bhagwat Chandrasekhar’s tally of 242 wickets.

England will have to produce a special show on a wicket that is turning square. The onus is on Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler. By all means, it is India’s game from here.
