States it's all about concentration. Also says that there was a period when it started reversing as well and they dealt with it carefully. Shares that he has grown up playing with Root and it's an absolute pleasure to have a partnership with him.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Consider that you are chasing a hefty target, and two of your weaker links in batting click and take out 100 odd runs from the target. That's a massive bonus. Alex Lees and Zak Crawley struck form at the right time. They went bonkers at the start, and their sudden attack stole the momentum away from India. The tourists responded by picking three wickets quickly to gain some control back, but then Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow joined forces to blunt the Indian bowling attack. Dropping Jonny when he was on 14 could be considered a massive moment in this Test match, and wondering how Hanuma Vihari will feel about that dropped catch.
The story of the second segment wasn't as dominating for India as the first one. Their batting was decent to swell the lead to 377, but they could have added more had they not suffered a collapse. The English bowlers got their act together, and their comeback started in this Test match. That said, to chase down a target of 378 was always going to be challenging against an Indian bowling group boasting of some great fast bowlers.
To be honest, this match, after the morning session on Day1, was thoroughly dominated by India. Their batting recovery was led by Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja's double-century alliance, and then Bumrah's record-breaking cameo put India on top. After that, Bumrah, the bowler, did the early damage to corner the home team. It was once again Jonny Bairstow's blitz with the bat that was the saving grace, but still, England conceded a hefty 132-run lead.
A Test match of the highest class culminates with England achieving a record chase and levelling the Test series 2-2. This game ebbed and flowed, and that's how we love it. The pendulum started to swing in favour of the home team on Day 4, and here they are registering their highest ever chase in Test cricket. This is also the highest chase by any team against India in Test cricket, bettering Australia's 339 at Perth in 1977.
No drama this morning as England scaled down the remaining 119 runs with ease. India didn't bowl with any control and leaked runs at a quick rate. Joe Root stroked a lovely century, and Jonny Bairstow was not behind as he extended his newly-found purple patch. Their unbeaten stand of 269 runs drove England to a commanding win.

Mohammed Siraj To Joe Root
Siraj starts with an effort ball. It's short and outside off, shooting off the surface, Root sways away and it nicely carries to Pant.
The morning session on the final day is set to begin. The Indian players make their way out on the field, followed by Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root who walk out with their swords. The weather is overcast, hopefully, the rain stays away. It will be Mohammed Siraj to start with the ball. Here we go...
The early morning conditions in England always offer something to the pace bowlers. The likes of Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah will be banking on that to produce the goods. The old 'soft' ball has not helped their cause as runs came at a brisk rate last evening. This is something India will like to avoid. The Indian body language will be crucial as well as their shoulders started to drop when Jonny and Joe put them to the sword. It's not all over for them and a bright start will push this Test towards a thrilling finish.
Welcome back, folks! We have at last arrived on the last day of this long Test series and it's still tightly poised. Although England have their noses ahead, they still have 119 runs to get and against this Indian bowling attack, nicely rested now, it is not going to be straightforward. The Indian fans will be wishing for an English collapse this morning whereas the home crowd will hope that the pair of Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root make light work of the remainder of the work. Needless to say, the first 30 minutes will show us which way this Test match will head. Stay tuned for more...
... DAY 5 ...
Still, a lot to play for though but for now, it is England who are on top. Do join us for what promises to be an exciting 5th Day. The action begins at 3 pm IST (9.30 am GMT) but as always, you can join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!
India, like New Zealand, failed to grab their opportunities. They had the chance of batting England out of the game but the shot selection by their batters could be questioned. Their bowlers, later on, found the going tough on a wicket that did not provide a lot of assistance. Bumrah was the pick but the rest failed to give any support. The first thing the visitors need to do is to break this stand and hope that opens the floodgates.
England's approach was brilliant yet again! The openers scored at a very brisk rate and put up 100 in no time. England then lost three in quick time but Root and Bairstow have continued their excellent form and have forged another outstanding stand which could well be a match-winning one. The day has well and truly belonged to them! First, their bowlers did brilliantly to not let India bat them out of the game, and then it was their batting that arrived to the fore.
Yet another terrific show by England in the 4th innings of a game and they have put themselves into a real position to actually win it. They scored 152 runs in the last session in just 34 overs and now need just 119 runs to win!

The game is delicately poised as the players decide to take DRINKS!
Root and Bairstow have played brilliantly after England lost those two wickets after the break! Still, a long way to go though and one believes this is the partnership that has to take them closer to the target. India on the other hand, needs a breakthrough. Also, they’ll be wanting to stem the run-flow. Can they do so? We will find out.

OUT! RUN OUT! Total chaos between the two batters! Ravindra Jadeja gets the ball to turn off the rough and gets an inside edge off Alex Lees' bat towards short fine leg as he presses forward to defend. Lees has no idea where the ball has gone, he trusts Root's call and responds. Meanwhile, Mohammad Shami attacks the ball and sends a flat throw to the bowler who does the rest. Alex Lees is not even in the frame. He never got any pace in his running there. Lees is disappointed as he looks behind. Virat Kohli is celebrating big time. England in deep trouble.

Jasprit Bumrah To Ollie Pope OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! This is the ideal start for India after the break! Whatever they had for Tea has worked wonders. Bumrah, the skipper, leads from the front. He gets Pope for the second time in this game. This is on a length and on off, it lands and moves away. Pope looks to defend but does so inside the line. It goes off the outside edge and Pant makes no mistake. England are on the back foot all of a sudden.
Joe Root, the ex-skipper is out to face the music!
We are back for the third and final session of Day 4 in Birmingham. What a crucial session this may prove to be in the context of the game! We could very well know which direction this game will go. The Indian players have walked out with a bit of a spring in their steps as they are pumped up after the last two overs of the previous session. England will try to continue to be positive. Alex Lees and Ollie Pope are ready to resume the battle and Jasprit Bumrah is ready with the ball.
... DAY 4, SESSION 3 …
A cracking finish to the afternoon session which was thoroughly dominated by England. A wicket late in the session was the only black spot for the home team. Their supposedly weak link in batting, i.e. the openers, provided them with a century stand and took out a big chunk of runs from the target. Alex Lees batted with positive intent and it soon rubbed on his partner Zak Crawley as well. The change in ball changed India's fortunes and they will look to regain control of this game after the break. It's all set up to be another enthralling session. Do join us at 8.30 pm IST (3 pm GMT) for all the action.

Jasprit Bumrah To Zak Crawley OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! That is an error in judgment and India gets the much-needed breakthrough and it is Jasprit Bumrah who delivers! It is never a good idea to leave a ball on a wicket where there is not a lot of bounce. With the new ball, it is still fine but you can’t leave it on length against the old ball and Crawley makes that mistake. It is just outside off, it comes back in. Crawley shoulders arms without covering the off pole. It hits the top of it. Will this open the floodgates? Can they take one more before the break?
