Real intent to make the best of the poor deliveries. Paul Reiffel was floored by a throw from the deep. That's 19th Test fifty for India captain and he is marshalling the chase with Ajinkya Rahane. Moeen off his pads, brings up the fifty partnership. There's another as Jennings prods it down the ground for one more. Curran, however, batted in a positive fashion hitting Bumrah for a couple of boundaries.
But if momentum could sway the eventual outcome, England had no business of losing the third Test. Jadeja finally reaps dividends for his efforts! He was dropped after failing to score a half-century in his first seven Tests in 2016, but was recalled for the tours of Australia and New Zealand last winter. India need another 173 runs to win with 7 wickets remaining. Off the mark down the ground for one. Pujara has gone after a start. Short, pulled by Cook but he doesn't connect properly.
Good length ball on off, shapes away a touch after landing. Curran has looked good both off the front and back foot. We understand how to react in tough situations. Not an ideal start, forcing him to go wider on the crease at this early stage. The early news is that Alastair Cook has again won the toss - for the third time in four matches - and that really should give England an advantage. Ashwin responds well, another leading edge but it goes quickly and darts past the infielders.
They need to hold fort and build a partnership here as the Indian bowlers have looked to bowl a tight line and length. Moeen Ali is the new man, and after a poor showing in Mohali the pressure is on at No 4. Stuart Board has a 50-50 chance of playing, and Keaton Jennings is all but assured of making Test debut for his adopted country. Measured aggression is the way for him to go. Umesh looked good against Jennings earlier and almost snared him outside off stump. Joe Root is the new man. Root is not wasting a review for it and walks off.
Cook lost his concentration, and came down the pitch only to find ball spinning through and he was left stranded. After a morale-boosting win in the third Test, the job is far from done for India, who are eyeing a rare Test series win in England. End of a fine knock by the Indian opener.

Moeen Ali comes back on the attack to replace Adil Rashid.
And they wonder why people don't watch Test cricket in huge numbers anymore. And Jennings recovered from a nervous start to show glimpses of real promise and justify his call-up ahead of other candidates like Sam Billings and Nick Gubbings. To keep the dream alive, India will need to do pretty much what they did in the third Test- bat well, build partnerships and take wickets. Tossed up beautifully outside off, drawing Jennings on the front foot. Cook, who's taken a back-seat recently, is beaten all ends up. Two balls later, Keaton Jennings offered a relatively simple catch to Cheteshwar Puajara, at gully.
He is literally getting the ball to talk here on the first day of the Test match. Buttler got completely deceived by it as he swung his arms in air but failed to connect it. He will feel a whole lot better for it. However, Joe Root played a handy knock to take his side out of trouble, getting good support from Keaton Jennings. England are on a roll here. Jennings gets forward and another one is run. But the first frame shows that is a no-ball.
And Jennings is off the mark with a a nudge into the leg side. First ball duck for Stuart Broad. He finds the boundary rope, hardly convincing, swiping at one outside off and it trickles away down to third man. Next ball, Jennings leaves alone but it stays straight and drifts past the stumps. Where did it strike him? Tossed up beautifully around middle, Stokes looks to defend it across the line and gets beaten by the turn.
