For a young guy to have such an influence is outstanding. It ended the 59-run partnership between Jennings and Root. Jennings beaten by on outside off stump. He whacked Nathan Lyon for a boundary to reach the milestone. The tickets of England vs India, 4th Test match will be delivered to you by international courier. Seems like he was a little late to start there India is the only side to declare in three consecutive innings against Australia. Earlier, India maintained upper hand during the first two sessions on Saturday.
Let's hope Haseeb Hameed is not too badly missed in these final two Tests. Buttler attempts a reverse sweep, hits the glove but bounces short of the infield. One more through the leg side and he moves to 44. Umesh looked good against Jennings earlier and almost snared him outside off stump. Once again angles it into the batsman first and then gets it to leave him. What time does India vs England 4th Test match begin? A great lesson to all batsmen in the series and tests in general.
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. Jennings should have been dismissed before he had scored when he was dropped by Karun Nair in the gully off Umesh Yadav but the escape seemed to galvanise him and he went on to take two fours off the last two balls of the over. Jennings prods a single, moves to 29. Pant moves to his right and takes a regulation catch. Not an ideal start, forcing him to go wider on the crease at this early stage. Kohli will have used that stoppage to chat with his team, they will remember how they got Moeen Ali out in Mohali against pace. Also Read- One the eve of the match, Indian selectors have to call Manish Pandey as out of form middle order batsman Ajinkya Rahane suffered a thumb injury during the net session.
Solid straight bat to the final ball. And, he just keeps on going. For the touring party, who are trailing the series, the Mumbai Test has become a turning point. But after that flurry of wickets in the evening session, they will perhaps be relieved to be just 12 runs short of 300 with five wickets still intact. This was a dream start for the South African-born Durham opener who was flown here from Dubai where he was playing for the England Lions to replace the injured Haseeb Hameed here. If he can farm the strike effectively then he still believes an Indian win is a possibility. Next ball, Jennings leaves alone but it stays straight and drifts past the stumps.
Their lower middle order has come through with flying colours once more. Ravichandran Ashwin lumbers up, so impressive so far in this series. Cook had earlier won his third toss out of four in this series and this time it is imperative England make the most of it after wasting their advantage in Mohali and with the series on the line in this penultimate Test. Cheteshwar Pujara looked solid as ever while even Rishabh Pant showed good stability since coming on. Replays suggested that he managed to get fingers under the ball, and Ali had to walk back. He's now calling for a new bat! Till then, it's a goodbye from us.
However, when Indian tweakers Ravichandran, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav will be dangerous, England too have weapons in their rank as leg-spinner Adil Rashid, off-spinner Moeen Ali, and uncapped Liam Dawson will pose an immense challenge to Indian batsmen.

Another good stroke gets him a single to deep mid on. Both Dhawan and Rahul have failed to make a mark in the series and Murali Vijay has already been sent home before the fourth Test.
India will have only pride to play for after going down in the fourth Test and losing the five-match series 1-3 against England who will see former captain Alastair Cook don the white flannels for the last time, in the fifth and final Test at The Oval. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. They get their reviews back on 80 overs so it's a purely tactical one. It goes up, but safely, and they run three. The former scored a fine fifty and though his partner failed to convert his start, the job was pretty much done as England's lead crossed 200 without much fuss. So this is a huge test for the 24-year-old. After a long series, we finally come to the last match of it.
Moeen Ali c Nair b Ashwin 50 104 Load More Hello and welcome to India. A moment to remember for Rishabh Pant! Here comes the declaration from the Indian Skipper. Coming to the bowling department, pacer Jasprit Bumrah could be rested keeping in view the Asia Cup beginning next week in the United Arab Emirates. Jadeja dances down the wicket and misses his lofted shot over long on. It doesn't matter though as Pant gets to his landmark.

Next up is a bouncer and Moeen ducks again. Shout for lbw against Jennings, Kohli is reviewing! Overall, England now have a competitive lead of 233 runs and it could be a tricky chase for the Indian line-up especially with the track being two paced where handling Stuart Broad could prove to be a difficult proposition. Key seamer Stuart Broad failed to play the third Test due to injury while young opener Haseeb Hameed, who impressed everyone with his temperament and technique, and rookie spinner Zafar Ansari were sent back home owing to a hairline fracture in the finger and twisted shoulder respectively. Umesh Yadav returns to the attack. This time too England are trailing the series 2-0 so this will be their last chance to turn around the fortune in their favour. Nasty blow and he's receiving treatment now.
