India vs England Highlights 4th Test Day 4: England ended Day 4 at 77/0 after being set a target of 368. Openers Haseeb Hameed (43*) and Rory Burns (31*) batted extremely well to play out overs without losing their wickets. An exciting day awaits us on Monday. Following fireworks from Jasprit Bumrah (24) and Umesh Yadav (25), India set England a target of 368 after being dismissed for 466. Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur forged a partnership of 100 runs, with both scoring half-centuries. Thakur scored the second fifty of the match, while Pant notched up his maiden half-century of the series. However, England struck in quick succession to dismiss both the set batsmen. Moeen Ali got the big wicket of Virat Kohli as England dominated the first session. The first 40 minutes of the first hour belonged to India but the last 20 belonged to England as Chris Woakes sent Ravindra Jadeja (17) and Ajinkya Rahane (0) packing in successive overs.

    STUMPS

    England ended Day 4 at 77/0 after being set a target of 368. Openers Haseeb Hameed (43*) and Rory Burns (31*) batted extremely well to play out overs without losing their wickets. An exciting day awaits us tomorrow

    UPPISH BUT SAFE

    FOUR! Siraj strays down leg and Hameed clips it off his pads for four. Th leg slip, which was there two overs back, was moved away before this over. The fielder is now back to the leg slip position

    FOUR! Hameed picks up another boundary in the fine leg region to move into the 40s. There was a leg slip fielder but Hameed being in good touch, he flicked the ball comfortably off his pads. 

    HOWZAATTT… NOT-OUT! BUT INDIA REVIEW! Siraj's nip backer strikes Hameed's back thigh pad and this does look out to the naked eye. 

    Ball-tracker shows that the ball was sailing over the stumps!

    Hameed survives!

    ENG are 75/0 after 31 overs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 11:06 PM IST

     LUCKY HASEEB!

    FOUR! When it's your day, it's your day! Siraj gets one to jag back in sharply to Hameed off length and the batter plays inside the line again. The ball runs past the keeper-slip gap after finding the edge of the bat for four. LUCKY!

    ENG are 67/0 after 29 overs, needing 301 runs to win

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:57 PM IST

    Interesting point. Do you agree?

    Virender Sehwag, on air, has just made a very interesting point. While talking about Jadeja's consistency with line and length with the ball, Viru said that Jadeja post injury hasn't shown the same discipline he used to before it. And going by his returns in England, it does seem to make some sense. 

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:52 PM IST

    EASY AS YOU LIKE

    FOUR! Easy pickings for Hameed. The pitch isn't offering to the pacers and the batsmen continue to make merry. A rank half-volley from Siraj and Hameed creams the ball through deep extra-cover on one knee for four. He is on 29 and Burns is on 27. More importantly for England, they are now looking very comfortable out there.

    ENG are 59-0 after 25 overs, needing 309 runs to wins

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:39 PM IST

    50-run stand

    50-run stand between the openers. What a start this has been for the home team. Just what the doctor ordered. The aim, now, would be to not lose their wickets before the close of play.

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:32 PM IST

    A maiden from Jadeja

    There is rough outside off for the left-handed batsman but Burns and Hameed are two men on a mission. They have batted brilliantly so far to make sure England haven't lost early wickets. Once again, nothing happening from the surface. What India wouldn't do to have Ashwin bowl on this deck?

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:25 PM IST

    Appeal against Hameed, but no harm done

    Ravindra Jadeja the bowlers and the fielder at silly point go up for a bat-pad appeal against Hameed. They feel the ball came off the boot after hitting the bat and into the hands of the fielder. The soft signal is not out and that's how it would remain. India though do not lose any review because it was referred to the third umpire. 

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:08 PM IST

    Drinks

    The players will now take drinks. ENG are 37/0 after 15, needing 331 runs to win.

  • Sep 05, 2021 10:02 PM IST

    Shot from Hameed!

    Four! He is a very good player of the backfoot, is Hameed, and has shown why this is the case. Back of a length delivery from Bumrah and Hameed latches onto it with a cracking drive through the cover-point region for four

    ENG are 34/0 after 13 overs, need 334 runs to win

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:57 PM IST

    A gift from Jadeja

    FOUR! Easy pickings for Burns. A loose half-tracker from Jadeja, Burns comfortably rocks back and pulls the ball into the deep square-leg gap for four. 
    ENG are 30/0 after 12 overs, need 338 runs to win

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:54 PM IST

    FOUR FROM BURNS

    FOUR! First boundary of England's innings and it comes off Burns bat. Umesh goes short and Burns swivels across quickly to pull the ball in front of square for four.

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:42 PM IST

    CONCERNING NEWS FOR INDIA?

    Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara will not field again for India at The Oval. Here's why!

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:37 PM IST

    First change, Jadeja comes in

    Smart move from Kohli early on. Brings in Jadeja after 11 overs as India look to exploit the rough patches on the pitch to make things happen.

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:36 PM IST

    Slow and steady so far

    Both Burns and Hameed are happy to play out most deliveries without having any urgency to score.

    ENG are 11/0 after 7 over, need 357 runs to win.

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:25 PM IST

    A quiet start from England

    After 5 overs, England are 6/0. Both batsmen are off the mark and so far, Indian batsmen have shown great discipline. 

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:09 PM IST

    Bumrah from the other end

    Bumrah is sharing the new ball with Umesh Yadav.

    He, too, begins with a maiden.

    ENG 0/0 after 2 overs, need 368 runs to win

  • Sep 05, 2021 09:04 PM IST

    England begin chase

    Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns have walked out to begin England's chase of 368. Umesh Yadav opens the attack

    He begins with a maiden.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:57 PM IST

    ENG'S TARGET- 368

    Right then! England have a little over day to chase down 368. One might reckon that India have done enough to avoid defeat. But this is Test cricket and one can never be sure. 

    Let's see how the English batters respond.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:56 PM IST

    INDIA ALL-OUT FOR 466

    OUT! India's innings comes to an end on 466 as Umesh Yadav is caught by Moeen Ali at covers. He looks to go inside out but ends up slicing the ball to the covers fielder off Overton. He departs for a well-made 25.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:52 PM IST

    THAT IS MASSIVE

    SIX! Umesh is now on 25 with a massive six into the stands. A slower ball from Woakes and Umesh clobbers it over long-on.

    IND 465/9 after 148 overs, lead by 365 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:45 PM IST

    Overton to Umesh: FOUR!

    AND NOW, UMESH GETS IN ON THE ACT. Pulls Overton in front of square for four.

    IND 458/9 after 147 overs, lead by 359 runs

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:42 PM IST

    OUT

    OUT! Bumrah departs for an entertaining 24 after he mistimes a lofted drive off Woakes. Holes out to Moeen Ali at mid-on.

    Mohammed Siraj is the new man in after a 36-run stand

    IND are 450/9 after 145.5 overs, lead by 351 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:40 PM IST

    INDIA LEAD BY MORE THAN 350

    FOUR! Goodness, gracious! Jasprit Bumrah, that is a shot and a half. Woakes, who is operating from the other end, whips the ball off his pads through mid-wicket for four. India's lead crosses 350.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:38 PM IST

    Hust the 1 run

    Overton's first over after tea yields just one run. 

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:28 PM IST

    Welcome back

    3rd session begins! We are back for the final session of the day! What target will India set England?

    IND are 445/8 after 144 overs, leading by 346 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:13 PM IST

    TEA

    Well, is it safe to say that the Indian bowlers are outperforming the Indian batters? India finish at 445/8 after 144 overs at Tea, leading by 346 runs. 

    The Bumrah-Yadav partnership for the 9th wicket is now worth 31 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:10 PM IST

    BUMRAH HAVING A BALL IN THE MIDDLE

    FOUR! Bumrah is carrying on the Pant-Thakur show. Takes the attack to Moeen Ali. Slog sweeps the floater over mid-wicket for four.

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:05 PM IST

    Chris Woakes is back with the ball

    Woakes is reintroduced into the attack

    FOUR! THAT IS STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOOK! Full face of the bat to an overpitched delivery and he drives the ball past mid-off for four!

    This p'ship is now worth 26. Serious batting

  • Sep 05, 2021 08:00 PM IST

    ROOT TO BUMRAH: FOUR (This is not a reversed equation)

    FOUR! Every single run will hurt England. Bumrah slog sweeps Root over deep square leg for four. This is going to hurt England, who will already be chasing a 300+ run target.

    IND 431/8 after 141 overs, lead by 332 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:55 PM IST

    Oh, hello there! 

    UMESH YADAV THUMPS A MASSIVE SIX! Well, he can hit a few long balls. Ali pitches the ball up outside off, Yadav unleashes a slog sweep and hoicks the ball over the cow corner for a massive six.

    IND are 424/8 after 140 overs, lead by 325 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:52 PM IST

    50 AND OUT!

    OUT! Pant throws his wicket yet again while playing an aggressive shot. Dances down the track to Ali's floater but fails to time it. Hits it right back to Ali, who does well to hold onto a difficult catch. 
    He's gone for 50.

    Jasprit Bumrah, the next batter in, plays out the last three balls of the over safely.

    IND are 414/8 after 138 overs, lead by 315 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:49 PM IST

    FIFTY FOR PANT

    50 for PANT! He will surely enjoy this. On the back of heavy criticism, he has hit an important 50. He needed and boy has he delivered.

    IND 414-7 after 137.1 overs, lead by 315 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:45 PM IST

    OUT!

    OUT! Oh, MY! That wicket has come out of nowhere! Completely against the run of flow. Root removes Thakur for 60. A well-flighted delivery outside off. Thakur looks to play it through covers but ends up nicking it to Overton at Slips.

    ANOTHER INNINGS OF MASSIVE IMPORTANCE COMES TO AN END!

    Umesh Yadav is the new man in

    IND are 412/7 after 137 overs, lead by 313 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:43 PM IST

    100-RUN STAND

    100-run partnership up between Pant and Thakur. 

    Is this the turning point of the match?

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:35 PM IST

    India's lead breaches 300-run mark

    FOUR! A straight drive off Anderson by Thakur takes India's 2nd innings total past 400 and the lead is now in excess of 300. 

    FOUR! Pant dances down the track, makes room and carves the ball over cover for four. He moves to 47.

    IND 405/6 after 135 overs, lead by 306 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:30 PM IST

    SECOND 50 OF THE MATCH FOR THAKUR

    SIX! DEPOSITED! DISPATCHED! Slower ball from Thakur, he picks it up instantly and tonks the ball over the bowler's head for a six. 

    FOUR! And now, Pant gets in on the action. Looks to defend the ball but finds the inside edge but it beats wicketkeeper Bairstow and runs away to the boundary. 

    FIFTY FOR THAKUR! What a comeback into the team this has been! He gets to his 50 off 65 balls. Twin fifties in the Test now. What a performance.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:24 PM IST

    Anderson to Thakur: FOUR!

    ‘LORD THAKUR’, ‘SCINTILLATING THAKUR’ OR ‘SHOWMAN THAKUR’ Call him whatever you may because this man is putting on an absolute show here. Anderson angles in a short delivery to Shardul's ribcage, who nonchalantly guides the ball behind point and wide of the fine leg fielder for four. He moves into the 40s. If anyone, it's Thakur who is making batting look very easy here. 

    NOT-OUT! Outrageous but very Pant-like. Attempts a reverse sweet against Anderson but is struck on the pads. Umpire gives it not-out and England do not have any reviews to refeer the decision.

    IND 383/6 after 133 overs, lead by 284 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:22 PM IST

    COMICAL INCIDENT INVOLVING PANT

    WHAT HAPPENED THERE? ENGLAND BOTTLE  A MASSIVE CHANCE! This is nothing short of comical. This is what pressure does to you!

    Coming to the delivery, Pant steps out and bunts the ball off his waist and takes off for a quick single. Shardul first said and then said no. Moeen Ali had enough time at mid wicket to run and hit the stumps but instead, he takes a direct hit. Haseeb Hameed, who was covering the throw, fumbles while attempting to run Pant out. Eventually, Pant scampers back on time. 

    CAN'T WRITE SCRIPTS LIKE THESE!

    IND 378-6 after 128 overs, lead by 279 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:16 PM IST

    Onto the honours board!

    Congratulations, Rohit Sharma!

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:15 PM IST

    Ashwin to replace Rahane in the next Test?

    Do you agree with this opinion?

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:12 PM IST

    DRINKS

    Drinks taken, the partnership between Thakur (36*) and Pant (37*) is now worth 63 runs.

    IND 375-6 after 131 overs, lead by 276 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 07:01 PM IST

    Anderson back into the attack

    James Anderson is back into the attack as Root and Co. are eager to break this partnership. He concedes three off the over. 

    IND 375-6 after 129 overs, lead by 276 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:49 PM IST

    THAKUR LOOKING  GOOD, PANT EVEN BETTER

    ANOTHER THREE! Thakur waits for the ball to come onto him, rocks onto the backfoot and punches the ball past the fielder at mid-on for three runs. Good, controlled that.

    FOUR! “TAKE THAT, WOAKES” I am pretty sure the swagger with which Pant played that shot followed by a long stare, that's what he would have murmured quietly. Short but not too wide of the off stump from Woakes. Pant gets his bat on time and slashes it in style for four. He is now on 36. What an innings this has been so far

    IND 370/6 after 126 overs, lead by 271 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:41 PM IST

    What a partnership

    50-run partnership up between Shardul Thakur and Rishabh Pant. A very important one for India. Shardul Thakur has been playing his shots throughout and Pant, who has now hit two boundaries, is feeding off Thakur's positivity.

    IND are 362-6 after 124.2 overs, lead by 263 runs.

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:32 PM IST

    250-run lead

    Thakur, on the backfoot, punches the ball to cover for a single to take India's lad past 250.

    FOUR! THAT'S MORE LIKE PANT. Ali floats it up around middle-stump line. Pant dances down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and thumps the ball over the Umpire's head for four.

    FOUR! Pant is now settled, eh? Shows pure timing with that punch through the covers. 

    IND are 358-6 after 123 overs, lead by 259 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:23 PM IST

     Thakur smacks another four

    FIRST REAL SCORING SHOT FROM PANT! Short and wide from Woakes, Pant smacks the ball into the gap through point. Hameed gives it a chase and saves a boundary but the batters run three. Pant has been very patient today so far.

    FOUR! Another wonderful shot from Thakur. On the up, he frees his arms through the uppish cover drive and finds another boundary. 

    IND 344/6 after 120 overs, lead by 245 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:16 PM IST

    Thakur survives

    IS THAKUR OUT? THERE IS AN UMPIRE REVIEW FOR A RUN-OUT!

    Thakur tried to steal a single but was sent back by Pant. He was slow on the turn but still managed to get his back behind the line on time. The ball rebounded and allowed India to steal a single. 

    IND are 336/6 after 119 overs, and they lead by 237 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:13 PM IST

    Welcome back

    Welcome back, folks! We are back for the second session of the day. How many will Pant and Thakur add? Let's find out.

    IND are 329/6 after 118 overs, and they lead by 230 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 06:10 PM IST

    Interesting time for this tweet to pop up

  • Sep 05, 2021 05:38 PM IST

    Stay tuned, we will be back soon

    Right, then! The first session belonged to England and they got what they would have planned to; three big wickets. India are 230 ahead but only have the last recognized pair out in the middle. Lots to play for. We will be back soon!

  • Sep 05, 2021 05:32 PM IST

    LUNCH- DAY 1

    India end the session at 329/6 after 118 overs, and they lead by 230 runs. 

    Thakur thumps Overton for a beautiful four with a straight drive. 

    He remains unbeaten on 11, while a cautious Pant walks back unbeaten for a 41-ball 16

  • Sep 05, 2021 05:30 PM IST

    Shardul Walks in

    Shardul Thakur, India's hero with the bat in the first innings, joins Rishabh Pant

  • Sep 05, 2021 05:29 PM IST

    KOHLI GONE

    OUT! Moeen Ali gets the better of Virat Kohli for the sixth time in Tests. Draws the outside edge and he is caught at first slip by Overton. 
    He is gone for 44

  • Sep 05, 2021 05:04 PM IST

    SIX

    FOUR OVERTHROWS! And Rishabh Pant has six! Pant dances down the track and bunted the ball to mid-wicket. Kohli, running to danger end, managed to squeeze in a double. England concede 4 overthrows. Kohli is ecstatic

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:56 PM IST

    Kohli into the 40s

    FOUR! SOO MUCH “OOOMPH” IN THAT COVER DRIVE FROM KOHLI! Punishes Overton for pitching it full slightly outside off. Kohli leans into the drive and creams the ball through covers. 

    With that shift, he has also crossed 1000 runs in England, at anaverage of 35.8.

    IND 304-5 after 109 overs, leady by 205 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:53 PM IST

    INDIA'S LEAD CROSSES 200

    IND 299/5, 108 overs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:47 PM IST

    Overton introduced and almost gets Kohli

    JUST SHORT! And he strikes almost immediately! Kohli nicks the ball but once again, it fails to carry to Joe Root at 1st slip 

    IND 298-5 after 107 overs, lead by 199 runs.

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:35 PM IST

    PANT IS THE NEW MAN IN

    Rishabh Pant is the new man in. He is off the mark right away byt collecting a double through the third-man region

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:31 PM IST

    RAHANE IS GONE, WOAKES STRIKES AGAIN

    OUT! Woakes strikes twice in two overs. Rahane is trapped LBW for an 8-ball duck.

    What a gem of cricketer Woakes is for English cricket. Root, in desperation for a breakthrough, turned to Woakes and his all-rounder did not disappoint. After removing Jadeja, he outfoxed Rahane, whose poor patch continues.  He wanted to review but Kohli told him it was out and they decided against it. 

    Players take drinks

    IND 296/5, 103.4 overs, lead by 197 runs

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:30 PM IST

    FASCINATING PASSAGE OF PLAY COMING UP

    A crucial passage of play coming up for India. Woakes is surely pumped and if England can take two or three more, especially in the first session, they know they would have a shot at bowling India out quickly. 

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:24 PM IST

    NOT OUT…RAHANE SURVIVES

    SCRATCH THAT! Rahane survives as ball-tracking shows that the ball was going to miss the stumps. What an over from Woakes. What a change in attack. What a cricketer Woakes is! 

    An exciting over comes to an end! 

    IND 296/4, 102 overs, lead by 197 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:23 PM IST

    OUT

    RAHANE SHOULDERS ARMS A WOAKES' DELIVERY BUT THE BALL JAGS BACK IN SHARPLY. England go up and he is given out. Rahane reviews and sicne there is no shot offered, they will only look at ball tracking

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:19 PM IST

    WOAKES STRIKES! JADEJA GONE

    OUT! THE BOWLING CHANGE WORKS STRAIGHT AWAY! A huge shout for LBW and Jadeja has been given out. 

    Jadeja reviews it just in time. Pitches on length and nips back in ever so much. Ball tracking shoes the ball was going to ram into the off-stump. 
    Jadeja has to go for 17(59)

    IND 296/4, 101.2 overs, lead by 197 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:16 PM IST

    Chris Woakes introduced

    Change in attack. Chris Woakes introduced for the first time today. 

     

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:15 PM IST

    SAFE…FOUR

    JUST SHORT OF BURNS and the crowd applauds! Robinson gets Kohli to edge the ball but it dies down on its way to the slip cordon. Bounces just in front of Burns. 

    FOUR! TALK ABOUT A RESPONSE! THAT IS DELICIOUS! Ollie goes full and Kohli, with a full flourish of the bat, produces a gorgeous off-drive and the ball races past mid-off for four. No need to run for shots like these! 

    IND 296-3 after 101 overs, lead by 197 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:13 PM IST

     Kohli's 71st International century loading?

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:10 PM IST

    WHAT A SHOT 

    FOUR! THAT IS MORE THAN A SHOT! THAT'S A STATEMENT FROM KOHLI! There is a cover drive and then there is Kohli's powerful cover drive. A rank half-volley from Anderson. Kohli leans forward, goes down on one knee and creams the ball through covers for four! 

    IND 291 for 3 after 100 overs, lead by 192 runs 

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:05 PM IST

    ANOTHER THREE- 50-RUN STAND

     

    IND 287/3 after 99 overs, lead by 188 runsANOTHER THREE! Another triple run by the duo of Kohli and Jadeja. Robinson pitches the ball outside off and Kohli gently opens the face of the bat and guides the ball to third man. The fielders clean it but the duo runs three.

    FOUR! A good over for India, the best of the day so far. Robinson strays leg side to Jadeja, who flicks the ball off his pads for four to the fine leg region.

    50-RUN STAND UP BETWEEN THE TWO BATSMEN!

    IND 287/3 after 99 overs, lead by 188 runs

  • Sep 05, 2021 04:02 PM IST

    So far, so good

    After the first half an hour, India have added 10 runs from their overnight score without losing any wicket. In the previous over, an awkward short ball from Anderson hit Jadeja's arm. Thankfully for Indian fans, no damage was done

  • Sep 05, 2021 03:43 PM IST

    Pitch report

    "Weather looks fairly good today. Still a bit cold and overcast. So, there will be swing but how much is the question.  The surface has now turned into an absolute belting track for batting. We saw that yesterday too. The grass has more or less died out and the heavy roller will only make it even more flatter." reports Dominic Cork.

    Can England strike early?

    The opening hour will be as important for England. They know that they take control once again if they can get 2-3 early wickets in the morning. Going by the form of Rahane and Pant, if the English batsmen get Kohli and Jadeja out cheaply, they will sense a strong finish

    How crucial will be the first hour be?

    The first hour of this 4th day is probably as important as an hour can get in Test cricket. Both Kohli and Jadeja know that they need to bat out the first session, especially the first hour, without losing their wickets. Should these two manage to do that while scoring, they will put England under immense pressure

    Kohli and Jadeja to take guard

    Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara's 153-run stand for the second wicket put India in the driver's seat. Soon after they were removed in the same over by Ollie Robinson, Jadeja and Kohli played out the last hour before bad light forced early stumps. 

    So far, Kohli (22*) and Jadeja (9*) have stitched a 33-run stand. They will be key to India setting a sizeable target today.

    It's almost as if a different Cheteshwar Pujara turns up for the second innings. For a second consecutive Test, the No.3 batsman was happy to play aggressive shots in the second innings. He scored a well-made 61 off 127 balls, at a S/R of 48.03
