    COMMENTARY

    That's a wrap to the first Test match. England have now stretched their winning streak to six matches away from home and it turned out to be a really special 100th Test for Joe Root. On the other side, after the high of Australia, India have come crashing down and will have to do a bit of soul-searching. You can expect a backlash from them when these two teams meet again in the second Test match in Chennai. It's starting on Saturday, 13th February. Do join us at 0930 local (0400 GMT) for all the action. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
    England captain, Joe Root is also the Man of the Match! Says that it was a crucial toss to win and it was a good wicket to bat on. Credits the bowlers as well for taking 20 wickets in very alien conditions. Adds that they knew it's going to be a good wicket and the first partnership was crucial to get them going and they carried on from there brilliantly. On his own batting, Root replies that if they want to win here, someone will have to score big, it was him this week and it could be someone else in the next week. Root knows that India will come hard at them in the next match. On his thought process regarding not declaring in the second innings, Root replies that the idea was to get to 400 and then speed things up but it didn't materialize. Further says that the most important thing for them was to make sure that an Indian win was out of the equation. On whether he did that due to the inexperienced spinners, Joe states that it was more about the bowling group to not worry about the run rate and just deliver its skills. He is happy that the boys handled that pressure really well. Speaking of James Anderson, Root calls him the GOAT of English cricket who consistently challenges himself and is still getting better and fitter. He terms Jimmy as a great role model for the rest of the group and hopes he continues for long.
    Indian skipper Virat Kohli is looking visibly disappointed. Says that they didn't put enough pressure on the English batsmen in the first innings. He tells that the pitch was on the slower side on the first two days as scoring runs and rotating the strike was easy. Feels the intensity in the field from them was not up to the mark but it got better in the second innings. Adds that as a side they are looking to improve things that weren't up to the mark and admits that England were the better team. Kohli mentions that you need your bowling unit to step up as a group which didn't happen. Also adds that there is a lot left to be desired with the bat. Tells that it was a hard grind and England were ready to do it and were more equipped. Regarding the toss, Kohli replies that losing it ended up being a reason which they didn't think it would be but the Indian skipper doesn't want to make any excuses and is looking forward to work on their mistakes. States that it's going to be a hard-fought next three Tests as they will not let things slip away like it did in this Test. Super V wants his boys to show good body language and understand the pace of the pitch well and at the end of the day, Kohli feels it's all about the mindset. Stresses that there will be hiccups but they are a side which always looks to improve. On Rishabh Pant's chirping from behind the stumps, Kohli smiles and replies that he is fun on the field and they want him to continue like this as his personality is really helpful to maintain good energy in the field. 
    To quickly summarize this Test match, we will have to start by saying that England outplayed India comprehensively in all the facets of the game. Joe Root's double century laid the platform as the touring team posted a gigantic total on the board. India were not at their absolute best with the bat in the first innings as they failed to save the follow-on. Although England didn't enforce it and came out to bat again. In their second essay, it was all about scoring quick runs and building on their 241-run lead however Root was criticized for not declaring the innings. Anyway, the English skipper knew what he was doing and his bowlers backed him by picking 10 wickets in the second innings as well. Stay tuned for the presentation...
    Jack Leach also comes up for a quick word. Says that it's his first time in India and he knew there will be pressure and is happy to pick a few wickets. On Pant, he jokes that he thought he is playing in the Indian T20 League and adds that he enjoyed that battle, just tried to stay strong and the English boys helped him a lot. Mentions that he had a long time without much cricket and bowling long spells in the heat of Sri Lanka really helped him. Shares that he just wanted to bowl consistently and not concede too many. He is glad to get the win and calls it a team effort.
    James Anderson comes for a quick chat. Says that it came out well and he got the reverse going. Informs that he just wanted to bowl in the right areas. Shares that it was important to get the movement in the air as the pitch was on the slower side. Tells that he is feeling great, enjoyed his time in Sri Lanka and has carried that form here. Says that it's exciting times to be with this group. Admits that it's been a tough wicket to work on and they would now look to rest well. Regarding Joe Root, Anderson says that he has been leading the team from the front and hopes that he continues with his form and others chip around him.
    Virat Kohli spent some time in the middle to stroke a half-century and his partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin provided India with some hope. But soon the inevitable happened as Ashwin got dismissed by Leach and Stokes went through the defense of the Indian skipper. An excellent win for the English team and they will be over the moon!
    Fantastic win for England! They have taken the lead in the series and also jumped on top in the ICC World Test Championship, swapping positions with India who slip to 4th now! The tourists were the favourites this morning but given India's recent form, all four results appeared possible. India started positively with Shubman Gill ready to play his shots and Cheteshwar Pujara offering good defensive solidity. Jack Leach though broke that stand and after that, James Anderson produced a masterclass of reverse swing bowling. He removed Gill and Aijnkya Rahane in quick succession and followed that up with the prized scalp of Rishabh Pant. Washington Sundar failed to repeat the heroics of his first innings and the writing was on the wall for the hosts.

Bizarre!
    What happened there? Is Ishant Sharma hit-wicket? The umpire is getting it checked upstairs. The replays show that the bails fall off without any contact from the batsman. Is it too windy there? Given as a dead ball as the bails were off even before the batsman had played his shot to a short ball.

    We're back! The players are also back on the field. India resume their fight for survival. Four wickets in the bank but they can't count too much on the last three batsmen. England would be looking to wrap things up in this session itself. Can they succeed? Let's find out. Jack Leach to bowl...
    ... DAY 5, SESSION 2 ...
    For India, all their hopes of saving this Test match are pinned on the shoulders of Virat Kohli. He has batted with intent and is on 45 at the moment but the Indian skipper will need support from the other end. Ravichandran Ashwin had a difficult stay so far in the middle and he is the last skilful batsman left for the home team. Can the current pair provide resistance? We will find out when the afternoon session begins at 1210 local (0640 GMT).
    Apart from James Anderson, the other England bowlers weren't consistent enough. Jack Leach did well to bowl good lines and removed Pujara but largely he and his spin partner, Dom Bess were not up to the mark. Jofra Archer bowled a hostile spell just before Lunch and England would be hoping that he will do the same after the break as well.
    A terrific morning session for England. They are looking like a happy bunch as they leave the field for the Lunch break. The day though started well for India. Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara batted positively at the beginning and the former also completed his half-century. But, the introduction of James Anderson changed things drastically. The English legend put on an exhibition of reverse swing bowling and removed both Gill and Rahane in quick succession, sending their stumps flying.

    A quick interview with James Anderson. The English seamer says that it is going to be a hard day for them and adds that they saw India showing good fight recently in Australia. Mentions that it will be a day of hard work. Tells that the surface is very abrasive and they are not far away from getting reverse. He is looking forward to work well in tandem with the spinners.
    Which team is on top? You will see the scorecard and say England. And it's true as well. But the way they were defensive in their approach last evening was bizarre. Before that, everyone waited for them to declare but they kept on batting and eventually got all out. Was the Pant factor playing too much in their minds? It appeared that they watched the Gabba Test too deeply and wanted to play it safe. Will that cost them a good chance to take the series lead? We will find out as the day progresses.
    Something for the Indian fans to feel confident! Famous stats man, Mohandas Menon has tweeted - 'On the fifth final day at the Chepauk in Chennai... In 1986 - India made 347 in 86.5 overs to TIE the Test against Australia. In 2008 - India made 256/3 in 69.3 overs to win by six wickets against England (target - 387). Today - India need 381 (with 9 wickets) in 90 overs.' Are we in for another miraculous result for the home team?
    Greetings, everyone! After four days of engrossing action, here we are waiting to find out the result of the first Chennai Test. 9 wickets and 381 runs - that's the equation! Two results look more probable at the moment - England's win or a draw but after what happened at the Gabba, you have to give an outside chance to India as well. Having said that, to score these many runs on a turning Chepauk pitch is next to impossible. Whichever way you slice it, one thing is guaranteed - A fascinating day to cap off this Test match. Stay tuned for more...
    ... DAY 5, SESSION 1 ...
    Right then. It has been an intriguing 4 days of Test cricket and this game is heading right into the wire now. 381 needed for India to win. England needs 9 wickets to take the first Test and let's not forget, that a draw is also on the cards. A wonderful final day of the Test cricket beckons and with everything on the line, it will be interesting to see which team comes out on top. So join us for Day 5 at 0930 local (0400 GMT). Until then, stay safe and cheers! 
    Ishant Sharma is in for a chat. He starts by saying that it has been a roller coaster ride but adds he has enjoyed it. Tells there are a lot of mentors in his life who have taught him how to bowl in the subcontinent and abroad. Smiles and says his body is a bit sore as he has played just shorter formats and bowled 35 overs. Tells if they get a good start on Day 5, they can chase it down as they have a fearless target. On how he felt of the pitch, Ishant smiles and says he felt like they were playing on the road in the first two days. Tells the ball started to spin after that. Ishant feels they bowled well and did a good job to restrict them on the first day on a flat-track.
    A day with which England will be very happy. This is exactly what their plan was - to bundle the Indian tail quickly before the Lunch break, then come out and add some more quick runs and ensure that their lead is a big, fat one and then have a go at the Indian openers right towards the end of the day and hopefully snare some wickets. The only thing that they will be slightly unhappy with is that they could only remove one Indian batter but they will still be happy with how things have panned out for them. Both their spinners, Bess and Leach were also making the ball talk towards the end of the day and the signs are looking good for the visitors heading into Day 5.
    The day started nicely enough for the Indians as the duo of Sundar and Ashwin battled it out for the first hour, but once Ashwin fell, the batting just collapsed. India came out with fire, with the ball, and were just phenomenal as they were right on the money right from ball one as Ashwin bundled Burns on the first delivery. India kept chipping away at the wickets while the English players kept trying to add to their massive lead. Led by Ashwin, who snared 6 wickets, they bundled the English Lions for 178. Coming out with the blade, they would have been hoping that Rohit and Gill could fend off the challenge until Stumps but Rohit could not hang around and the duo of Gill and Pujara ensured no more casualties occurred.
    Wow, what a brilliant day of cricket we have witnessed! Simply superb. Both India and England were ferocious in their approach and it is due to their efforts that this Test is going right to the wire. Sure, it looks tough and the total seems big to scale down for the hosts, but that's what was said about the final Test at the 'Gabba between India and Australia last month and we all know what happened in that game, don't we?

    COMMENTARY

    End of over

    IND192-all out (58.1 Ovs)

    We are back for India's innings. The two openers for India, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill walk out to the middle. James Anderson to start with the ball first up.
    Right! A big task ahead for the Indian batters. The third day wicket will certainly have some spin and bounce. England will look to strike early and make inroads in this game. Leach and Bess will key for them. India will hope big knocks from the openers. Indian innings coming shortly.
    It was a hard toil for Kohli's men! More than 190 overs for them to get 10 English wickets. They just couldn't go past Root's defense and had no answer to his brilliance. The wicket had absolutely no help for the bowlers. India had three spinners. The spinners bowled more than 126 overs in this game. Ashwin got 3 while Nadeem bagged 2. Bumrah and Ishant collectively took 5. So, overall, tiring day for the Indian bowlers. They'd now hope the Indians bat the way England did so that they get decent time off the field.
    Earlier in the game, England won the important toss. The openers gave them a perfect start. Sibley fell 13 short of what could've been a fantastic century. Root came! The man in form for England and he just kept going. 50, 100, 150 and then the double ton. A double ton in his 100th Test. A supreme knock from the English skipper. Stokes chipped in with a counter-attacking knock of 82. Pope, Buttler and Bess contributed as well and England have put on a massive first innings score.
    Right! 10.1 overs is what India take to get rid of the two wickets and close the innings. The Indians were once again frustrated for a bit in this little phase. Bumrah removed Bess with the third new ball. Pant made a meal of a stumping chance but Ashwin did't take long to get the last wicket and bundle England out.
    190.1
    Ravichandran Ashwin to James Anderson, out, OUT! Cleaned up! That ends England's marathon first innings. Ashwin gets the final wicket as England innings Tossed up around off, Anderson goes for the slog sweep but he gets beaten on the flight there. The ball though does not miss its target as it crashes into the middle pole. England BOWLED OUT FOR 578 RUNS!

    We are all set to start play on Day 3 as the two unbeaten batsmen from Day 2 for England, Dom Bess and Jack Leach walk their way out to the middle. The Indian players are also on the field. Two wickets is what India need to wrap the English innings. How fast they can do? Lets find out as Ravichandran Ashwin to start with the ball on Day 3. Here we go...
    Pitch Report - Nick Knight is out there for the pitch report along with Deep Dasgupta. Dasgupta says that it is a bit rough from yesterday and there have been footmarks outside the right handers off stump. He further says that the pitch will be on slower side with the turn and bounce. He ends by saying that the batsmen can manage with the slowness of the surface.
    Right then! England have still a couple of wickets left in their hand and both Dom Bess and Jack Leach can bat means a few more runs is what England would want to add. On the other hand, India would want to take the remaining two wickets as quickly as possible and then start their quest to overhaul the English lead and then get into the lead themselves. How long will the Indian team take to take the two wickets? What will be England's final score? Answers coming up shortly as the game resumes on Day 3.
    The moving day of the Test between England and India in the first Test is here. Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our coverage. Day 2 to saw a Root masterclass as he went past yet another double ton in Tests to put his team in a strong position at 555/8. Though he departed but the lower order continued the good work as contributions from Ollie Pope and Jos Buttler contributed to the England total after Root, Stokes and Sibley laid a perfect platform. For India, it was yet another day of toiling hard in the field as the bowlers were taken for a leather hunt. Despite that Ishant Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem and Ravichandran Ashwin Shared the honours of the wickets to fall on Day 2.
    ... Day 3, Session 1 ...
    What's up on the 'moving day' then? Nothing alarming, one would assume. India will aim to get the two wickets quickly and then bed in on a flat deck. There is turn and bounce but it is slow. The Indian batsmen would have watched it while fielding and will be fairly confident. England would hope that Sunday makes the pitch show some inconsistent bounce and their spinners get some help. They have probably got themselves into a position where they may not lose, but to win, they need to bowl India out twice, which will depend on how India bat in the first innings. Join us then, from 9.30 am local (0400 GMT) for all the action from Day 3. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
    Ben Stokes is up for a chat. On his first six off Ravichandran Ashwin early in his innings, Stokes just puts it down to instinct. On his attacking instincts, Ben says that in this innings, he saw Shahbaz Nadeem generate a few balls to bounce out of the rough, so as an individual, he decided to go after the bowling, preferring to hole out to deep square leg, rather than getting caught at bat-pad. Details that he discussed the same with Joe Root and he immediately agreed. On Root's innings and also as a teammate, BS says that you never know how good your teammates are till you actually play with them and relishes his partnership with his skipper. Is not too worried about missing his century and says that the only thing he might have done differently is try and hit it straighter. Feels that the deck has plenty in it for spinners but nothing much for the seamers, lauding praises on Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah and hopes that England's seamers do the same when they get their chance.
    Full marks to the Indian spirit. This is when character is defined, when things are not going for you. All the five bowlers used were excellent, landing the ball in the right areas but the pitch was very unresponsive and the batting, of higher quality. Except Sundar, who was unlucky not to get either of Buttler or Bess, every other regular bowler took 2 wickets each. No balls and fielding is something which the dressing room might want to talk about.
    It was a day of mental battles. India started well, keeping the run rate in check but then England fought that with patience. Eventually, the Indians started to tire out and the batsmen pounced. Ben Stokes played a wonderful knock. Apart from him and Joe Root, no other English batter could come to terms with the conditions. Still, they did not throw it away. As per Mark Butcher, England will look to bat on and get as many as they can but in our opinion, they will run out of time to force a result. Remember, the Indian batting is excellent and to take 20 wickets in 3 days, is not going to be easy.
    Another excellent day for England. They have piled on a huge total, on the back of skipper Joe Root's double century but meaningful partnerships have taken the score past 550. As many as 4 partnerships went above 50, while 2 more went above 30. If any, the only thing which looked surprising is why were they still batting with the tail. Might have well declared with 10 overs left and tried to take a wicket or two of India.

    169.2
    Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler, out, OUT! Arms are shouldered and the off stump is rattled! Misjudgement from Buttler and this is not the first time in his career. Anyone who followed the Ashes would remember the way the Aussies dismissed him in 2019. Keep it outside off, just a fraction wide and then make it come back in. Buttler feels this will not come back in enough or if it does, will go over. But to his horror, it comes back in at stump height and pegs the off stump back. End of a 48-run stand.
    169.1
    Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler, FOUR, EDGED, FOUR! Streaky. Short and outside off, Buttler looks to cut but without moving his feet. Gets an inside edge which shoots past the off stump, to the left of Rishabh Pant and into the fine leg fence.

    DRINKS BREAK. A bit of controversy before the break then. Sundar seems really disappointed and looking at the reactions of everyone around, there seemed to be a nick. May or may not have a big say, depending on how long Buttler or England bat. They have racked up 500. What is in their sights? Do they plan to bat out Day 2 as well? India have managed to stifle the run rate since the fall of Joe Root. New batsmen are finding it difficult to adjust.

Rishabh Pant immediately went up and Sundar too, joined in convincingly. Short leg, silly point, first slip, leg slip, all chipped in.

    We are back for the third and final session of the day! 33 overs left! The Indian players make their way out to the middle. Joe Root and Ollie Pope follow them. We might just see then up the ante in this session. Jasprit Bumrah to begin for India. Here we go...
    ... Day 2, Session 3 ...
    Stand up and applaud for Joe Root. He has batted nearly 5 sessions but still looks fresh. He continues to solider on but also is able to get partnerships around him. Ben Stokes played a blinder while Pope is struggling. But still, England have added 291 runs so far through the last three partnerships. Back-to-back century stands and this one is worth 67 as of now. Clearly, they are looking to bat India out of the game. Will they look to declare this evening? Only time will tell. 33 overs left in the day. Join us back at 2.30 pm local (0900 GMT).
    Tired bodies from India but they are doing well to maintain their smile. They have been out there for 147 overs and have really toiled. The afternoon session cannot be put down to lack of effort but nothing seems to be going their way, On a spinning track, the spin trio of Ashwin, Nadeem and Sundar have picked up 2 wickets but the economy rate is nearly 3.5 an over. That is the worry. India have tried to dry up the runs but England's patience has been supreme.
    It has been 4 fruitless sessions for India, out of the 5 to have taken place. Fruitless need not necessarily mean wicketless but in the context of the game, that adjective is used. 99 runs in 28 overs in this session, for the scalp of Ben Stokes. England are marching on.

    138.6
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Ollie Pope, no run, Pope survives a review from India! And with that, the hosts have exhausted all their reviews for this innings. Full and around leg, Ollie looked to sweep. The ball lobbed off something to Ajinkya Rahane at somewhere around leg gully. India appeal for the catch but nothing from umpire or even Ajinkya Rahane. Yet, Kohli goes for the review. Ball Tracker shows no spike when the ball passes the bat or glove. They check for the LBW but Ball Tracker is showing the ball to bounce over. Desperation from India.

    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, no ball, FOUR, FOUR! CLUBBED! A partner killer. Full and outside off, Root jumps down the track and hammers it straight back. Nearly takes Pope out of the way, who has to get down in a hurry. The ball races to the long on fence. Root moves to 181. 
    136.1

    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, no run, Landed outside off, Root goes back and defends.
    Ravichandran Ashwin is back on. 35-3-92-1 so far.
    DRINKS BREAK. India have managed to dismiss Ben Stokes but England continue to march on. They have touched 400 and will aim to get another 100. Of course, that is easier said than done. The ball is reversing, the pitch is offering turn and run scoring ain't going to be easy. India are allowing Joe Root to solider on and focusing on his partners. Ben Stokes played a blinder but Ollie Pope is not quite enjoying the conditions out there. On such pitches, you can never rule out a collapse.
    131.6
    Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope, no run, Around off, watchfully defended.
    131.5
    Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope, no run, Fuller, around middle, flicked towards mid-wicket. Short mid-wicket gets across, looks to stop but fumbles and lets it through. Pope looks for the single but there is mid-wicket mopping up. But that lackadaisical effort has not gone unnoticed. 'C'MON BHAI!' yells Pant. The response is an apology from the fielder.
    131.4
    Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope, no run, Fuller, outside off, swinging away, driven towards mid off.
    131.3

    131.2
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, 1 run, A short ball, outside off, Root goes back and comfortably pulls it all along the ground to deep mid-wicket for a single. 400 UP FOR ENGLAND. Something that Chris Silverwood wanted, England's head coach, when he took over - that England make 400 more often. It need not necessarily be a match-winning score but more often than not, it puts you in a dominant position.
    131.1
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, no run, A short ball, but wayward. Down the leg side. Root gets across and moves out of the way.

    129.3

    129.1

    128.6
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ollie Pope, no run, Ugly. Full and outside off, Pope reaches out, looks to sweep but misses. Nearly loses his balance.
    128.5
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ollie Pope, no run, There comes the arm ball again, on middle, once more Ollie is solid in defending.

    127.6
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ollie Pope, no run, Full and around off, OP drives it towards mid off.
    127.5
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ollie Pope, no run, That is a jaffa. On a good length, outside off, Ollie looks to defend. But the ball straightens and squares him up. Beats him and goes off something to the keeper. There is an unconvincing appeal for the catch but the umpire shakes his head. That went off the pad.
    127.4

    126.5
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ollie Pope, FOUR, FOUR! Pope opens his account with a streaky boundary. Short and outside off, Ollie rocks back to cut but the extra bounce induces an outside edge. It flies in the air, but is well wide of Cheteshwar Pujara at backward point, to his left.
    126.4
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ollie Pope, no run, Full and around middle, pushed back to the bowler.
    126.3

    126.2
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, no run, Full and around off, watchfully defended.
    Ollie Pope walks in at number 6, replacing Stokes. With the pitch turning, this will be a test of his character.
    126.1
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Stop the press. India have taken a wicket at last. Is this the one to open the floodgates? And even this one was nearly dropped. Full and around off, Stokes continues his counter-attacking style and goes for the slog sweep. Connects well but perhaps, gets more height than he would have liked. The distance is not there. Cheteshwar Pujara is stationed at deep backward square leg and it is a regulation catch. He takes it, but oops, fumbles. Luckily for him, the ball goes through his palms, hits his knee and that helps him take it on the rebound. Smiles sheepishly. No real celebration from the Indians, they understand the value of this innings. 82 from 118 balls. Wow. Take a bow,  Ben Stokes. Could well be the difference between the two sides. The 124-run stand has been broken.
    125.6

    125.5

    125.3

    125.2
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Around off, watchfully defended.
    125.1
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, 2 runs, Landed outside off, Stokes angles this behind point. Shahbaz Nadeem goes after it, slides near the boundary and keeps the batsmen to a couple. Stokes moves to 81 now.
    124.6
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, no run, Full and around off, smothered out.
    124.5
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, 2 runs, Brilliant batting. Root plays this against the spin, with soft hands, nurdles this through mid-wicket and even in this heat, runs back for the second. The stand moves to 121.
    124.4
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, 1 run, Full and around off, pushed towards cover for a single.
    124.3
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, 2 runs, Landed outside off, Ben punches it through the covers and runs very well for the second. But great understanding from Rishabh Pant. He sees a tired Ishant Sharma at the cover boundary, so himself goes after the ball.
    124.2
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, no run, Full and outside off, Stokes looks to play the reverse sweep but misses. Is hit on the pads and the ball lobs to square leg. 'JO KARNA HAI KARNE DO, HUM UDHAR HI DAALENGE, ' chides Pant. Meaning, 'Let them do what they want, we will bowl there only.' He is doing an excellent job to keep the Indian spirits high.
    124.1
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, 1 run, Landed outside off, Root goes back and pushes it behind point for a single.
    123.6
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Around off, pushed towards cover.
    123.5
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Short and outside off, seaming away, Ben looks to pull but misses. Both batsman and bowler smile.
    123.4
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, FOUR, FOUR! Not a bad idea, but not the greatest execution. Bumrah goes for the slower yorker, rolling his fingers over the ball. But it turns out to be a low full toss. It is on the stumps and Stokes is watchful. This is very important. Even though he is counter-attacking and has reached the 70s, he is not slogging wildly. Waits for the ball, spots it till the last moment and flicks it between mid on and mid-wicket.
    123.3
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Full and just outside off, watchfully defended towards short mid-wicket.
    123.2

    Jasprit Bumrah is back on. 24-4-57-2 so far.
    122.6
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, SIX, SIX! CLOBBERED! That is the way he plays. We have seen Ben Stokes come under pressure while playing spinners outside his off stump but his way to counter that is by being attacking. So far, it has been working for him. Flighted, wide outside off, Ben comes down the track. Gets to the pitch of the ball and plays it with the spin over long on. The stand moves to 110 and BS has scored 72 of those.
    122.5
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, 1 run, Dropped short, outside off, Joe goes back and pulls it to the right of Jasprit Bumrah at long on for a run.

    121.6
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, no run, Back of a length and on off, Root stays back and defends it.
    121.5
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, 2 runs, Fuller and on off, Root hits it back towards the bowler. Ishant does well to get down and get a hand to it. He takes some pace off the ball and hence, only two as mid off does the mopping up job.
    121.4
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, no run, Lands it on a length around off, Root pushes it to covers.
    121.3

    121.1

    120.6
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, 1 run, A single to end! This is angled into the pads, Root works it through square leg for one. The century stand is up between the two.
    120.5
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, no run, Better! On middle, nicely tossed up. Root blocks it.
    120.4
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, FOUR, FOUR! Too short and put away! Someone who is batting on above 150 won't miss out. This is short and wide outside off, Root guides it through point and bags a boundary.
    120.3
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, 1 run, A little too short this time, it is worked through mid-wicket for one.
    120.2
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, no run, This lands outside off, in the rough. Stokes looks to reverse sweep it by moving outside the line of off. He misses as there is extra bounce and is hit on the body.
    120.1
    Shahbaz Nadeem to Ben Stokes, no run, Starts off with one on the pads, Stokes works it to backward square leg.
    Shahbaz Nadeem to bowl from the other end!
    119.6
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, no run, Back of a length and on off, Root stands tall and plays it onto the gronud. A tidy start by Ishant.
    119.5
    Ishant Sharma to Ben Stokes, 1 run, Stokes walks down the track to negotiate the swing. It does work for him as Ishant shortens his length. It is worked towards square leg for one.
    119.4
    Ishant Sharma to Ben Stokes, no run, Length and outside off, Stokes does not fiddle with it.
    119.3
    Ishant Sharma to Ben Stokes, no run, Well wide outside off, swings away further. Left alone.
    119.2
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, leg byes, 1 run, Leg bye! First run of this session corutesy an extra! On the pads, Root looks to flick but misses. It hits the pad and rolls on the leg side. Leg bye taken.
    119.1
    Ishant Sharma to Joe Root, no run, Starts off with a back of a length delivery on off, Root plays it to gully.
    We are back for the afternoon session! The Indian players are out in the middle and so are the England batters, Joe Root and Ben Stokes who will resume their innings. Root will face the first ball after the break and he will be facing Ishant Sharma. Here we go...
    ... Day 2, Session 2 ...
    How do India get wickets? Well, with the pitch starting to play tricks, it really is going to be a matter of time. Once this partnership is broken, they can actually burst through the middle order. Having said that, Ben Stokes' innings could be the game-changer on this deck. Add to it, if Jos Buttler takes a cue from him, it will be a bit difficult for India to combat. Join us back at 12.10 pm local (0640 GMT) for the second session.
    India have not bowled poorly but things have not gone their way. The good balls have not resulted in wickets, the chances have either not gone to hand or not been taken while fractionally bad balls have been punished. In fact, they have bowled way better than yesterday and the pitch is aiding them too. This is where England will be very happy. They would want the pitch to behave indifferently because they are past 350 now. India are the ones to bat last on this wicket and the English spinners will be hoping that they get enough assistance. If any, the fielding was disappointing, because the shoulders were drooping. Stokes was put down twice in the morning while an easy run out chance of Joe Root was missed.
    Another excellent session for England. 92 runs in 29.3 overs and crucially, no wickets lost. There were a couple of half-chances but India could not quite grab those. Root has played beautifully, carrying on from last night while Ben Stokes has taken a lot of pressure of his skipper. The duo is involved in a stand of 92, of which, Stokes has 63. He has counter-attacked the bowlers, especially the spinners, not allowing any one of Ashwin, Nadeem or Sundar to settle. He made use of the inexperience of Nadeem and Sundar and kept playing brilliant attacking strokes.

    117.6
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no ball, no run, Full and around off, BS drives it towards mid off. That will be the end of the over. Or not. Because the umpire has his right hand stretched out.

    117.5
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Around off, watchfully defended.
    117.4
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, FOUR, FOUR! Third boundary in the last five balls for Stokes. Full and around middle, Ben just works it through mid-wicket and gets a boundary. It is not a bad ball, as if he misses, he is gone LBW. But he connects. Moves to 63 and takes the partnership to 90.
    117.3
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, no run, Full and outside off, very close to the sticks, left alone. Risky.
    117.2
    Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, 1 run, Angled in from outside off, pushed towards cover for a single. The best seat in the house right now. That is what Joe Root is saying to Ben Stokes. I will get to the other end and watch the fun while you bat.

    Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, no run, Landed outside off, dabbed towards gully.
    116.6

    115.6
    Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, no run, Ripper of a delivery! But exceedingly well played as well. This is why Bumrah is so dangerous. He is not about inswingers or outswingers. He fires a yorker, just around off. But Root is watching the ball like a hawk and digs it out perfectly. Excellent cricket all around.
    115.5
    Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, 1 run, Around middle, nudged towards square leg for a single.

    114.4
    Washington Sundar to Joe Root, no run, Ooh... that kicked up. Short, outside off, Root goes back to flick but the ball suddenly rears up, makes Joe lose control of his bat and hits him on the gloves. Root smiles because England are 337/3. But the pitch is starting to play tricks.

    109.3
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Ben Stokes, 1 run, DROPPED! Tough chance. Full and outside off, Stokes jumps out and looks to go over mid on. However, the ball lands on he rough and spins in. Hence, the leading edge is induced. It goes to the right of Ashwin who is moving to his left and hence, cannot quite react quickly enough. The ball bursts through his fingers and a single is taken.

    Shahbaz Nadeem to Joe Root, no run, Unfortunate for India. It never looked like going over. Full and around middle, Root lunged to defend but missed and was hit on the pads. Nadeem appealed but the umpire was firm. Kohli had a chat with Pant and one feels he says it might have gone over. Kohli goes for the review though. Ball Tracker shows the ball to be going over leg stump. Another review gone.
    Review time again! This looks a lot close. The umpire has not given Root out and replay seems to suggest that it is going straight on. Here comes Ball Tracker. Bouncing over the leg stump!

    107.4
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Ben Stokes, no run, India lose a review. Full and around off, Ben looked to play the reverse sweep. He missed and to the naked eye, it seemed like it lobbed off the glove, well wide of slip. Ashwin appealed for LBW, but there was no conviction. Strangely, Kohli went for the review. The first replay confirms it was glove. India lose a reviw but one feels it was tactical, just to slow things a bit.

    Drinks break. A fantastic first hour for England. Both Joe Root and Ben Stokes were largely untroubled as India tried hard to create a breakthrough. Both the Englishmen played some attractive shots and looked at ease. For India, the highlight was the toe-crusher by Bumrah which Stokes somehow managed to dig out. Apart from that, a few deliveries have gripped and turned but nothing threatening to make the batsmen think. 40 runs have come so far in the morning and England are comfortably placed at 303/3. The home team needs quick wickets otherwise it'll be a long day in the field for them.

    All in readiness! The players are on the field. Joe Root has a new partner in Ben Stokes. The latter has been off the radar for quite some time and could be a bit rusty. It's going to be Jasprit Bumrah to complete his over. Let's play...
    Pitch report - Beautiful conditions, the sun is shining bright. The surface is looking much better and 263 is a sign of how this pitch has played. The deck looks dusty and loose near the rough area outside off for the left-handers. Post Tea, it might just start to offer some turn. All in all, it's still an excellent strip to bat on.
    What to expect today? It's said that on Day 2, the pitch is at its best for batting. England would be looking to make the most of it and get a big total in the first innings, something Joe Root mentioned last evening. Given the unresponsive nature of this surface, it's going to be tough for the bowlers and India's plan will be to keep a check on the scoring rate if the wickets are not coming. The ball is still fairly new and the hosts would be hoping to make some early inroads this morning. A very crucial first hour coming up shortly.
    Warm welcome, folks! We're getting ready for the second day's action. It was a remarkable opening day for England as their skipper led from the front and set the tone for the series. Joe Root put on a masterclass and carries his magnificent form from Sri Lanka. His partner in crime, Dom Sibley, also showed good progress and put on an innings full of courage and skill. Together, they made India sweat hard for two sessions and put on a double century partnership. The tourists are in a commanding position but there is a still long way to go in this match.
    ...DAY 2, FIRST SESSION...
    Right then. A wonderful day of play, where the visitors came to foreign conditions and have shown their might on the very first day of the Test. The Indians will be tired, physically and mentally, after this day but they know that this is just Day 1 and there are four more days remaining for them to leave a mark on this game. They will be raring to come out and start strong on Day 2, whereas the English batters will want to pile on the runs and compound the misery on India. So join us on Day 2 at 0930 local (0400 GMT). Until then, take care and cheers!
    The man of the moment, the man who the day belonged to, England skipper, Joe Root is caught down for a chat. Root says he feels alright, he was cramping towards the end, needs to get some fluids. States they need to continue the good work tomorrow and make use of a very strong first day. Adds the surface played well, it is an unusual looking surface, there is not a lot in there, a little bit of reverse swing. Mentions they know they have had a good day but need to capitalize on Day 2. Also says more than anything he just wanted to get used to the bounce and the surface and as he got in, batting got easier and they just wanted to build a partnership and take it deep in the day. Also adds he is a firm believer that the best ton is the next one but it will mean more if they can get a result out of this game.
    A hard day at work for the Indians. Bowling and fielding in that heat out there in Chennai was never going to be easy but the way the duo of Root and Sibley have made them work, they will head back feeling extra tired. The Indian bowling was good starting off and they were rewarded as well as they scalped 2 wickets before the Lunch session. After that, they kept knocking on the door but the English batters did not allow them to come in at all and right at the stroke of stumps, a wonderful delivery by Bumrah saw him send back Sibley. Ishant, Bumrah, and Ashwin bowled well but did not reap much rewards for the same. Nadeem and Sundar were decent. Overall, they will be slightly disappointed with this effort.
    The day started off in good fashion for England. Their openers, Burns and Sibley started off in a gradual manner. They kept attacking the loose balls and respected the deliveries that they know could do them some damage. They almost saw off the challenge until Lunch and that is when Burns played a rash shot and lost his wicket. Lawrence followed him back shortly after for a duck. Then came the resilience by the duo of skipper Root and Sibley. They kept going at it from the post Lunch session and have battled it out until the end of the day, stitching a 200-run partnership. Whatever the Indian bowlers kept throwing at them, these two kept fending it off. Root, on his 100th Test appearance, went onto score a 100 as well. Sibley was well on his way to reach his hundred but fell right towards the end of the Day.
    What an intriguing day of Test cricket we have had. The first session of the day saw India and England share the session as both of them had their moments. But since then, England have shown their dominance and have absolutely made all the bowlers of India toil and work hard in the humid conditions of Chennai. Sibley will be gutted to depart in the final over of the day but the tourists will surely be the happier side with how things have panned out on Day 1!
    89.3
    Jasprit Bumrah to Dom Sibley, out, OUT! LBW! Sibley cannot survive the day! The review does not do him any favors and such a heartbreaking end to the day for Dom Sibley. He batted wonderfully throughout the day but right towards the end, with just 3 balls remaining, he has departed. A Bumrah special finally gets the better of Dom Sibley. These things can happen in the final over of the day. The batter looks to block rather than score and the defensive mindset and tired legs sometimes do get the better of batters. Yorker on middle, Sibley is late in getting his bat down in time. He misses his flick and gets hit flush on the pad. A huge appeal follows and the umpire raises his finger. Sibley has a word with Root and without much confidence but rather hope, he decides to take the review. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows flatline as the ball goes past the bat. Time for the Ball Tracker and it shows three reds. Sibley has to walk back and so do the other players.  But unlike Root, he will not walk out to bat tomorrow morning. STUMPS ON DAY 1!
    Sibley has been adjudged LBW but he has decided to take it upstairs. It looks plumb to the naked eye, has Sibley got some bat on this?

    DRINKS. It has been all England so far as they have dominated proceedings since the post Lunch session. They have continued the good work and have not stopped how they are accumulating the runs at the moment. Root is well on course to reach his hundred and Sibley is also playing well. Kohli will be hoping that he can break this stand, with the new ball atleast, when it is available and he will wish that they can end the first Day strongly.

    Right then. We are back for the third and final session of Day 1. The batters for England, Joe Root and Dom Sibley make their way out into the middle. They have played very well so far and will look to continue the same now as well. The Indian players too come out and spread out on the field. Ishant Sharma to begin proceedings with the ball for India in the final session. 
    ... Day 1, Session 3 ...
    Not much to talk about the Indian bowling. No no, it is not because they were bad but just because they were not able to break this partnership even when they were on top, right at the starting phase of this session. Ishant bowled really well but was not able to convert that into wickets. Ashwin and Bumrah bowled well too but they seemed tired at the end of this session. They will be hoping to come back fresh and break this stand. Will they be able to do so or will this duo continue on their merry way? Join us for the third and final session shortly.
    Starting off the session, the duo found it hard to find the runs as the Indian bowling was on top. They kept things tight and the pressure was mounting on the batters but after one point, both of them decided to flick that switch and then they started looking to keep the runs flowing, be it boundaries, or be it singles or doubles. In that process, Sibley also reached his half-century and Root is also closing in on his fifty and with the way these two are set out there, they will be looking to stay out there for as long as possible. 
    England's session, you would say, based on the way things have panned out in the second session of the day. They have added 73 runs to their total and have also not lost a wicket. The duo of Root and Sibley have kept going and have not looked back even once. Even though they lost 2 quick wickets at the end of the first session, they have not let that bog them down. 
    56.6

    55.5
    Ishant Sharma to Dom Sibley, no run, Beauty! Ishant has been brilliant today. Reverse swing on offer for him. Fuller outside off, it comes back in. Sibley looks to defend but is a bit late and luckily does not get any bat on it.

    54.5
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, FOUR, FOUR! This time through the off side. Too short, very wide, and Root is in too good a form to miss out on it. He gets on his back foot and punches it through covers. There is a huge gap there and the England Test skipper hits it in that gap for a boundary. Back-to-back poor deliveries from Ashwin. You seldom see that.  Is it the sign of the spinner being tired? 
    54.4
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, FOUR, FOUR! First poor ball from Ashwin and Root is quick to punish it. Short around off, too short and slightly wider from off pole. Root pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary.

    53.1
    Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, no run, Appeal for LBW but turned down by the umpire. Seems like it is going down leg and hence Kohli has opted to not review it. Slower delivery on middle and leg. Root looks to flick but misses and gets hit on the pad. There is an appeal but the umpire is not interested. Kohli, Bumrah and Pant have a chat but the latter does not seem too keen and the Indian skipper does not review it. Good call not to review it as Ball Tracker shows it to be going down leg later on. 
    52.6
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Dom Sibley, no run, In the air but off the pad. Floated outside off, Sibley looks to defend but misses. The ball hits his pad and lobs to leg slip, who takes the catch. There is a muted appeal but nothing from the umpire.

    We are back for the second session of play now. The batters for England, Joe Root and Dom Sibley make their way out into the middle now. The Indian players are in a huddle near the ropes as Virat Kohli is imparting some final words of wisdom before they look to spread out on the field. Jasprit Bumrah to operate first up to begin the second session of play. He looks ready and here he comes...
    ... Day 1, Session 2 ...
    The bowling by India was not poor but they were not rewarded for their hard work with any wickets. The pitch also was not assisting the bowlers all that much and it was slightly easy for Burns and Sibley to stroke to ball around to keep the scoreboard ticking. That is until Ashwin struck and broke this opening stand and Bumrah then sent Lawrence back into the shed for a duck. India ended the first session on top and will look to continue the same in the second session. Will they be able to do so or will Root and Sibley build something concrete? Join us for the second session shortly.
    The openers for England, Sibley and Burns started off nicely. They were watchful and attacked the loose deliveries they did really well to fend off the early challenge and were looking set to head into the first break unscathed but a poor shot from Burns meant that his stay out in the middle came to an end. Lawrence then came out and went back quick as he was out plumb for a 5-ball duck. Then, there was a run out scare for Joe Root but he was safe and Sibley and Root have since managed to negotiate proceedings until Lunch. 
    A very intriguing session of play which hangs in the balance, you would say, as England dominated the majority of the session but towards the last half hour of the session, two quick wickets for the Indians means that this session will be shared between both these sides. 
    26.6
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Dom Sibley, no run, Tossed up on off, Sibley manages to keep it out. That will be the final ball of the session. Lunch on Day 1!

    26.4
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, 1 run, NOT OUT! Frantic but in the end the England Test skipper is safe. A run out here would be nothing but disastrous for England especially right before Lunch. Short on off, Root turns it to square leg and takes a single. There is a slight hesitation but they go for it. The fielder scores a direct hit at the bowler's end.The umpire takes it upstairs and replay shows it is not a direct hit but Ashwin deflected the ball onto the stumps. Anyway, Root is well inside the crease and safe.
    26.3
    Ravichandran Ashwin to Joe Root, no run, Short around off, Root blocks it.
    The third umpire is called into play for this run out appeal. Have India got another one just before the Lunch break? They will certainly hope so. Replays roll in and Root's bat is grounded before the wickets are broken. The big screen reads a big 'NOT OUT'. 
    26.2

    25.4
    Jasprit Bumrah to Dan Lawrence, out, OUT! LBW! As plumb as it gets! Bumrah strikes for the first time in his Test career in India. This is a typical Bumrah delivery. Credit to Kohli as well. He has done his homework. Lawrence is a good player of spin and he easily could have continued with Ashwin after the spinner got a wicket but he introduced Bumrah and his strike bowler gives him the breakthrough. Fuller delivery pitching around off and jagging back in at pace. Lawrence looks to flick but is too late to get his bat down and the ball hits him on the backpad. Bumrah knows he has his man but puts in the mandatory appeal. The umpire has no qualms in raising the finger. Lawrence has a word with Sibley but he gets no support from him for the review. Good call because it looked plumb and the Ball Tracker later on proves it.
    Two quick wickets fall for the visitors now. The skipper, Joe Root makes his way out into the middle now.

    Ravichandran Ashwin to Rory Burns, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Ashwin gets the breakthrough and the budding, gritty opening stand has been broken. The bigger question is where has this shot come from, Rory Burns and was it even necessary in the first place? This is a Christmas gift for Ashwin from Burns which has come super early. Ashwin comes over the wicket for the southpaw and bowls a floated delivery on middle. Burns brings out the reverse sweep. The ball bounces a tad extra, kisses his glove and lobs around the stump. Easy catch for Pant who will not drop these even in his sleep. Jubilation for Ashwin and co. Disappointment for Burns.

    Jasprit Bumrah to Rory Burns, 1 run, DROPPED? Looks like it. Pant have to stretch but he does not take this one. Good effort from him. On a length and on sliding down leg, Burns looks to tuck this one but is only able to manage a faint tickle as Pant dives to his right, gets his fingertips to this but is not able to hold on. One run for Rory. 
    Who will bowl from the other end with the new ball? No surprises here as Jasprit Bumrah shares the new ball with Ishant Sharma.

    Right then. We are done with all the pre-match formalities as the action is all set to begin. The Indian players spread out on the field. The openers for England, Dom Sibley and Rory Burns follow them out now. They will want to provide a good platform early on. Ishant Sharma to speed in with the ball. Here he comes...
    Both sets of players along with the umpires walk out to the middle for their respective national anthems. First up it will be the tourists, England followed by India's. We are just moments away from the start of this exciting clash.
    PITCH REPORT -  Nick Knight and Deep Dasgupta are the pitch analysts for the day. Nick Knight says that the pitch looks fresh as cricket has not been played here for a long time. Deep Dasgupta reminds us that the last time India played a Test here was in 2016 and they scored 700 runs. He though adds this does not look like a 700-run wicket. There are a few spots on the deck and every time the ball hits these areas, it could behave slightly differently. Ends by saying that it could be a two-paced wicket.
    India (Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (C), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (WK), Washington Sundar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Shahbaz Nadeem.
    England (Playing XI) - Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Daniel Lawrence, Joe Root (C), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler (WK), Dominic Bess, Jofra Archer, Jack Leach, James Anderson.
    Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says that they would have batted first as well as the surface is a good one. Feels that it was an amazing phase as having a child is a different feeling and having the team won the series in Australia was the cherry on the top of the cake. Says that they have not thought about the WTC and that they focused on the process in Australia and it is important to focus on the present moment. 
    The England skipper, Joe Root, starts by saying that they will bat first and try to make the most of it. States that they will try to put up a good first innings total. Adds that he loves to play cricket in India and is looking forward to a great series. Tells that they need to play their best and they are confident.
    TOSS - We are all in readiness for the toss. The men who matter, Joe Root and Virat Kohli are in the middle. Up goes the coin and it lands in the favor of Joe Root. ENGLAND WILL BAT FIRST! 
    England, on the other hand, comes into this series, with a 2-0 win against Sri Lanka in the Test series at the Island nation. They showed that they have what it takes for them to show their dominance in sub-continent conditions but to do it against this Indian team, who have lost just one Test in the period between November 2015 and November 2019 at home, will not be a walk in the park. But with Root's form, the inclusion of Stokes and Archer and with the reliable duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad in their ranks, they certainly possess the tools to upset this Indian side. Will they able to pull a rabbit out of the hat or will this Indian team show their dominance on home soil and romp away to a victory? Join us for the toss and the team updates.
    Talking about India, they have been on fire as they went Down Under and very famously have won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020/21 with a very depleted squad. Doing something along those lines, that too with the squad that they possessed, must have given them so much confidence heading into this home tour. The return of Virat Kohli will be a massive boost to the hosts, and with the squad that they have, they will be gunning to start this Tour with a big win.
    Hello, folks! We are welcoming international cricket to the Indian shores on this occasion as it is time for the sub-continent to welcome England for a pretty long tour which consists of 4 Tests, 5 T20Is and 3 ODIs. But first, they will contest in the purest form of the game as the Tests are upon us. On that note, let us give you a warm welcome to the first Test between these two giants which is being held in Chennai.

    End of over

    IND192-all out (58.1 Ovs)

    Right then. England now have to come out and bat and with the lead of 241 to their name, they will look to come out, score some runs quickly and swell that lead up to a big number, so that they can have a go at the Indians with the ball again. India will be hoping to scalp a few quick wickets and peg them on the back foot. We might also see a change in the batting line-up of England as they look to be aggressive. Join us for England's reply with the bat shortly.
    England bowled wonderfully in the first innings. They bowled with intent and tested the batters well and their good work saw them peg four wickets very early on but were then pushed back by the duo of Pujara and Pant. But they came back strongly and removed them too and also saw off another fightback staged by the Sundar and Ashwin. Bess was the pick of the lot as he snared 4 wickets. Archer, Leach and Anderson scalped 2 wickets each to their name. Overall, just what Root would have wanted with the ball.
    The batting by India did not start off nicely. They tried to keep the runs flowing by kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were not able to stitch those valuable partnerships. They were struggling at 73/4 at one point and even their charismatic skipper, Virat Kohli was back in the shed. Then came the fightback from the duo of Pujara and Pant stitched a great partnership of 119 runs before both of them fell one after the other and Pant fell while on 91 as well. Ashwin and Sundar then tried their best again, with a 80-run stand but once Ashwin fell, the wheels fell off and India was bundled for 337.
    Good work by England after being pegged back in the first hour today has seen then bundle the Indians for a total of 337 and they also hold a massive lead of 241 to their name now and it has also been confirmed that they have not enforced the follow-on as well. 
    95.5
    James Anderson to Jasprit Bumrah, out, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! What a stunning catch from Ben Stokes at first slip. Bumrah is unable to negotiate the two balls he was tasked to and India are bowled out. Fabulous catch from Stokes. Anderson bowls a full ball on off, the ball shapes away from Bumrah. Jasprit Bumrah looks to defend but gets a thick outside edge and it flies low to the right of first slip. Stokes there dives and takes a brilliant one-handed catch. INDIA BOWLED OUT FOR 337! Trail by 241! 
    95.4
    James Anderson to Washington Sundar, 1 run, Good shot and they take a run. Length ball around off, Sundar punches it to deep point and decides to take a run. 2 balls for Bumrah to face in this over.

    93.5
    James Anderson to Ishant Sharma, out, OUT! CAUGHT! James Anderson gets his first wicket of the game and Ishant's fight comes to an end. Excellent bowling from Anderson. Sets up the Indian tailender brilliantly. Full ball, followed by another full ball, puts Ishant on the front foot. Then Anderson unleashes a short ball. It is well-directed and more importantly, the ball does raise off the surface. Not an easy thing to do on a subcontinental Day 4 pitch. It is a cross-seam delivery. Ishant awkwardly plays at it and ends up giving a dolly to short leg. Ollie Pope there takes a simple catch. Indians need 56 runs to avoid the follow-on.
    Jasprit Bumrah is the last man in for India.

    90.5
    Jack Leach to Shahbaz Nadeem, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Nadeem departs and Leach gets his second of the day. What a difference a day makes! He was hammered left, right, and center by Pant on Day 3 but today Leach has been fantastic and gets another one. Slightly shorter on off, not too short just a tad. Nadeem gets on his back foot to defend but the ball turns away and takes the outside edge.  It just about carries to first slip and Stokes there manages to take a good catch. The extra man at silly point made him uncomfortable. 
    90.4
    Jack Leach to Shahbaz Nadeem, no run, Tossed up on off, Nadeem blocks it uppishly. Lawrence at silly point is a bit away on the right. Had he been at traditional silly point, this could have been the end of Nadeem.

    DRINKS! A good hour of play. Ashwin and Washington Sundar were playing well before the former departed. The latter is looking really comfortable out in the middle. The question is can Nadeem hang around with him and see off the next hour of this session? England will look to wrap up the Indian tail before the end of the session. Another intriguing hour beckons us. 
    87.6
    Jofra Archer to Shahbaz Nadeem, no run, Goes for the yorker but ends up bowling a full toss down the leg side, Nadeem looks to flick but misses. A wry smile on Archer's face after this one. 2 off this over.
    87.6
    Jofra Archer to Washington Sundar, no ball, 1 run, A quick single. On a good length and on middle, Sundar clips this one to the mid-wicket region for a very quick run.

He strikes on the second ball and this stand which will troubling England so much has been broken. The extra bounce has done the trick. Flighted and on off, bounces more than what Ashwin expected probably. He prods forward and looks to defend but the ball takes the top half of the bat and lobs to the right of Ashwin. Stokes and Buttler both run towards the ball but Buttler is the one who runs and gobbles this one up. Ashwin stands for a few seconds and then starts walking back.

Flighted delivery wide outside off, Sundar leans forward and plays a beautiful drive through cover for a boundary to bring up his milestone.

    Hello and a warm welcome to Day 4 of this intriguing Test match between India and England. Against all the odds, the English Lions are on top after 3 days of play and are holding all the cards at the moment. First, they batted wonderfully, courtesy of a fine knock from their skipper, Root. Then they started very strongly with the ball and have snared 6 wickets and are leading by 321 runs. They will be looking to bundle the remaining wickets and enforce a follow-on whereas the Indians will be banking on Sundar and Ashwin to bat for as long as possible and take them to safer shores. Which team can achieve their goals? Join us as we bring you all the relevant updates...
    ... DAY 4, SESSION 1 ...
    Right! That's all from the moving day of the game. England still in command in this game with a lead of more than 300. Now, on Day 4, how will the wicket behave? Can England strike early in the first session and push the Indians on the back foot? India would want these two to bat longer? Another exciting day on the cards. The action starts on Monday, 8th February, 2021 at 0930 local (0400 GMT). Join us then. For now, it is goodbye from our end.
    England were pretty good with the ball throughout the day. It was Archer who gave them the breakthrough. He got the wicket of Rohit and Gill first and then it was all about Dom Bess. He got the big fish Kohli and then managed to remove Rahane too with Root taking a fine catch. He also got the wickets of Pujara and Pant. Overall, a decent effort. However, they would've loved a couple more on the day.
    Earlier in the day, India managed to get the remaining two wickets of England in the first hour of the morning session. However, in the remaining overs, they lost their openers. Both the openers were looking good but failed to get going. Gill looked really good but departed to a fine catch. India then lost Kohli and Rahane in quick succession. Pant arrived and took the attack to the opposition. He hit 5 sixes in his 88-ball 91 with Pujara doing his work. The duo added 100-plus and kept India in the game. However, they too departed in quick time. Pujara got out in an unfortunate manner while Pant was dismissed going for a big shot. After that, Sundar and Ashwin managed to see off the threat while playing over 100 balls.
    A battling day of Test cricket! A good effort from Sundar and Ashwin in this session to see off the threat. They have played over 100 balls and made sure England are not running away with the game. From 73 for 4 they have got to 257/6. However, they are still a long way behind in this game.

Yes, you read it right Pujara was out in an unconvincing way to hand England the advantage. England would hope that a wicket or two before the close would cap off a brilliant day for them. While India would want Pant and Sundar to play responsibily and see off the day for them. An intriguing hour of play to begin.

He connects it well. But hang on. England are celebrating. Burns catches it. What happened there? He nailed the pull. But the ball hits the back of Ollie Pope at shrot leg who is ducking to save himself. The ball hits his back and lobs to Burns at mid-wicket. This wicket is pretty similar to one India lost in 2001 at the Wankhede. It was SRT then who got out in a similar manner. He went for the pull to the poor ball by Mark Waugh. Tendulkar connected the pull really well but the ball hit ducking Langer, the current Australia coach, and went wide of Ponting who was at mid-wicket. Punter ran to his right and pull off a fine catch with a dive forward. He was unfortunate then, and Pujara now.

    Welcome back for the final session of the day. Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant walk out to the middle. England players too are on the field now. They would be eyeing the wicket of Pant now? Can they cut the fiery southpaw's innings short? Jofra Archer to get the session going with the ball. Here he goes...
    ... DAY 3, SESSION 3 ... 
    So, the way Pant has batted in this session, the final one is set up nicely now. If he can continue the way he has in one more session, England will feel the heat a bit. However, one wicket for England and they will be into the bowling all-rounders. So, the most important session of the moving day coming up. Join us shortly for the same.
    It was turning out to be a fantastic session for England with the ball. Bess bowled tightly and removed the Indian skipper cheaply. Rahane was sent packing, courtesy of a brilliant catch by England captain. Leach was smashed all over the park in his spell. However, England will be mighty pleased with their overall effort with the ball.
    India started decently with Pujara and Kohli knocking the ball here and there. However, Kohli fell and Rahane followed his skipper. Pant arrived and went bang, bang. He has raced to a fine counter-attacking half ton and Pujara has set himself for a big one as well. Now, England are well ahead in this game at the moment but Pant with his style of play will surely made England think.
    An entertaining session of cricket again! England struck twice after Lunch as the Kohli and Rahane fell early. Bess did superb stuff in this spell. Then came Pant and counter-attacked to make sure England are not completely on top of them.

The England players too are out in the middle and all set to begin. James Anderson will begin the session with the ball. Here we go...
    ... DAY 3, SESSION 2 ... 
    Pitch Report - Deep Dasgupta is down to share his insights on how the pitch will play post Lunch. He says that there is a little more rough on this wicket and the bowlers would try and use that against the right-handers. Adds that at the opposite, there are not many foot-marks and it is going to be interesting to see how the pitch plays post-Lunch.
    So, a big session ahead now. India needs to bat long. Their two best Test batsmen are in the middle and they will look to take the team to a good position. England will know that another wicket early and they would be on top here. This what they will look to do. A very important session coming up. Join us for the same at 1210 local (0640 GMT).
    Archer was brilliant with the ball in his first spell. He steamed in from start and got the reward. He bowled a few loose balls and Gill was quick to punish him. Archer got the wicket of Rohit first and then got Gill with Anderson helping him with a fine catch. They have not got a lot of support off the wicket and that can be seen with the scoring rate of India. However, with two wickets in the session with a big first inning score, they will be pleased with their performance.
    Gill looked really good in the middle. He played a few top shots during his innings but fell to Archer. Rohit poked at a ball that he should've left and saw his downfall earlier in the Indian innings. Pujara has shown good intent in the middle and is looking good. Skipper Kohli has joined him and the duo now has a massive task in hand.
    A fine session for England. Their overnight batters troubled the Indians for nearly an hour and scored 23 more runs before Ashwin removed the last man. And then Archer got both the Indian openers before they could get set for a big knock.
