  • MAR 05, 2021 09:51 AM IST

    WTC scenario

    If India are able to put up a big score in their first innings, their chances of making it to the World Test Championship final will be greatly enhanced. It would almost guarantee their place in the final against New Zealand as England batsmen haven't looked comfortable on this pitch.

  • MAR 05, 2021 09:46 AM IST

  • MAR 05, 2021 09:05 AM IST

    Pitch report

    The pitch on day one did not behave like the third Test. It came on nicely, yes it was spinning but it looks like a good pitch to bat. Ajit Agarkar says fast bowlers could have a say on day two. But England have only played one seamer. So can India make most of it?

  • MAR 05, 2021 08:29 AM IST

    India would target a big total

    India still trail England by 181 runs and they have nine wickets in hand. They would need one of their batsmen to stick around and score big. A big score in their first innings could be a death knell for the England cricket team.
