    India vs England 1st Test Day 4 - LIVE!

    Hello and welcome to another exciting day of Test cricket. The third day of the game was enlightened by the knocks of Rishabh Pant (91) and Cheteshwar Pujara (73) as they put up a fighting 119-run stand for the fifth wicket. But the heart-breaking moment was Pant losing his wicket in 90s again on the home soil. Now comes the penultimate day of the match when the onus is on Washinton Sundar (33) and Ravichandran Ashiwn (8*). In response to England’s mammoth 578 for 10, India have scored 257 for 6 and are 321 runs behind.

    So, get ready for yet another roller coaster ride as we enter Day 4 of the first Test from Chennai.
