That's the coverage from this match! India have turned the tables with a victory here. The hosts are down 2-1 and will do everything to make it 2-2. Do join us for another riveting Test match, the last one of this series which will begin on 10th September at 11.00 am local (10.00 am GMT). But the build-up will begin much in advance. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match. He says that he wanted to be on the field as much as he could and that this hundred was a special one. He adds that after being down and out in the first innings and then going on to post 466 was an amazing collective batting effort. He says that it's his first away hundred and it's his best one yet and commends all the other players. He says that the bowlers did the job and the whole team is pumped right now. Also adds that he doesn't care much about big scores and is happy to score runs as required by his team. He also adds that batting in these conditions, specially at the top of the order is not easy and recollects the training at Durham. He says that the training helped them a lot after the WTC final and the results could be seen in this series. He ends by saying that he feels fit and it's just about what the physio says.
The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that he thinks the best thing about both the wins was how the team showed character. Mentions that they put up a good total on the board and it was going to be tough to chase. Adds that the bowlers were exceptional and it would rate this performance amongst his top 3. Tells that the bowlers exploited reverse-swing conditions perfectly today and they believed as a team that they could get 10 wickets today. Mentions that Bumrah was just outstanding. Informs that to give away 27 runs from 22 overs speaks volumes. Goes onto say that if England will give a chance to them, India will take it with both hands. Credits Shardul Thakur and says that his first innings made the difference and his fifty in the second innings was noteworthy as well. States that they focus on their job and do not look over stats and don't bother with the noise that comes from outside and they try to perform as a group. Tells that this win gives the team more motivation to go out and win the final Test as well. Says that the fans have been amazing as well.
The England skipper, Joe Root says, that when they came out to bat today, the match was there for the taking but they couldn't capitalize on the start. He then credits the opposition bowlers and mentions that they showed real skill. He also goes on to say that the bowling was world-class and they will want to improve on how to counter it. He adds that there will be swing at Old Trafford as well. He mentions that they need to be more ruthless and clinical and is disappointed with how the lead was turned against them. Mentions that they need big partnerships and not settle for starts and collectively need to put in a better batting performance. About the slip catching, he says that the players do practice a lot and it's just about being brave and taking the chances. He also adds that yes, they have had injuries but that cannot be an excuse and they need one big push in the final Test to level the series.
... THE PRESENTATION CEREMONY ...
England were in the ascendancy in the first innings. They had a nice lead of 99 runs but that's all it was. The lead was soon turned to dust and the hosts were out of sorts with the ball in the second innings. They did not get any movement and the visitors took advantage of a flat pitch. 368 runs still looked a good score to chase on a flat pitch and England started off well. The openers negated Day 4 and then continued to merry their way to put a 100-run stand. It was still fine when Malan got out but after that they had a collapse and lost four wickets for just six runs. Root tried to hold fort but there's only so much one man can do. Wickets kept tumbling and Root also departed. England crumbled under pressure and weren't able to show much resistance. They went on to suffer a heavy defeat in the end.
What a turnaround it has been from India. Who would have thought that after being bowled for 191 runs in the first innings, the visitors would go on to win by 157 runs? The batters, Rohit Sharma in particular destroyed the English attack in the second innings but was very well supported by Pant, Thakur and some handy contributions from the tail, which put India in the driving seat. The bowlers toiled hard late on Day 4 but couldn't get a single breakthrough. That however, changed on Day 5 and Shardul Thakur provided an early wicket to set the tone for the rest of the day. From then on, Bumrah and Jadeja were brilliant and after Lunch, they made short work of the hosts and all together the visitors picked up six wickets in that session. Umesh Yadav had a brilliant burst in the end with the second new ball to clean up the England tail.
What a victory this has been for India. Incredible scenes all around the stadium. Virat Kohli is pumped up, India are pumped up.
India have won the fourth Test by 157 runs and have taken a crucial 2-1 lead heading into the final Test. Incredible scenes all around the stadium. This cracker of a series just keeps swinging like a pendulum.

... Day 5, Session 3 ...
What a sensational phase of play for India. Jadeja started well and got Hameed very early after the break off the rough. Bumrah then showed his class and dismantled Bairstow and Pope and got to his 100th Test wicket in the process. Jadeja removed Ali as well for a duck and then Shardul Thakur again got the breakthrough removing the dangerous Joe Root. India are now just two wickets away and have as many as 37.5 overs to get that. Join us 4.00 pm local ( 3 pm GMT) for the final session.
England started the session with intent, Root reverse-sweeping off the first ball of the session for four but all that changed pretty quickly as Hameed was the first one to depart. England then fell like a pack of cards as they lost Bairstow, Pope and Ali pretty quickly. Only Root managed to stay solid and England would have banked on him to stay for long but that didn't happen as well. England need another 175 runs but that is way out of their reach and only have 2 wickets in the tank.
India bossed this session completely! The bowlers managed to scalp six wickets to put England on the back foot and are on the verge of a victory. England will have their heads down and will be pretty disappointed with how they played post Lunch.

OUT! DRAGGED ON! India do not take the new ball, gives Shardul Thakur a go before taking it and he has delivered yet again. He bowls a good-length ball on the fifth stump channel, Joe Root stays deep in the crease and looks to cut it away. He is perhaps a bit too late into his shot. The ball goes off the inside half of the bat and shatters the stumps. England lose their best batsman and India into the ascendancy now.
The second new ball is available for the taking but India don't take it just yet. Shardul Thakur has been brought back into the attack.

Mohammed Siraj To Chris Woakes
THREE LEG BYES! This one is angled in from outside off and comes back in a long way. Chris Woakes looks to flick but gets hit on the pads. Mohammed Siraj lets out a huge appeal but the umpire turns it down. The ball rolls on the off side and the batsmen sneak in the single. There is a shy at the bowler's end and there's no one backing up. The batters get two overthrows as well, resulting in a total of three leg byes.

We are back for the second session! The Indian players walk out to the middle. Joe Root and Haseeb Hameed jog out to the middle as well. Ravindra Jadeja to start proceedings after Lunch.
... Day 5, Session 2 ...
The Indian bowlers couldn't extract much from the pitch but didn't allow English openers to score singles too easily. They bowled a lot fuller and straighter but the batters did well to combat that. It was then Shardul Thakur, who scalped the first wicket in his first over itself to make early inroads. India had Malan too later and could have had Hameed earlier but was put down by Siraj on 55. India need 8 wickets and England need 237 more. It won't be easy particularly with Ravindra Jadeja bowling in that rough patch but the pitch is still good to bat on and England would love to take it to their advantage. What will happen? Join us for the second session at 1.40 pm local (12.40 GMT) to find out.
Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed were pretty solid at the start. Burns brought up his half century as well but got out right away after that. Hameed continued to stay solid as he went past his fifty while Malan did well to hang around despite Jadeja causing some problems to the left-hander but lost his wicket in a run out as there was a mix-up between him and Hameed. England would now hope that Joe Root and Haseeb Hameed continue to bat as long as they can.
This session is a shared one but India will be happier of the two sides. The bowlers bowled well and India have managed to scalp two wickets in the first session to put England on the back foot but Haseeb Hameed has done pretty well to stay solid and would want to make it into three-digit scores.
