England beat India by 28 runs
Right then folks, Test cricket is well and truly alive and time and again we are reminded that it is the ultimate test for any international cricketer and what a coincidence to see two giants of the game getting defeated on their home turf against sides that looked down and out early in the game but managed to pull off miraculous wins and this game is a great humbler as well. We have a long five-match Test series but England have done what they needed to do and have got a headstart against the formidable Indian side. Next up, the caravan moves to Visakhapatnam for the 2nd Test match and that game will begin on 2nd February at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). However, you can join us a lot sooner for the build-up to that one. Until then, take care and goodbye!
Ollie Pope is the Player of the Match for his sensational knock in the second innings. Pope says that to come here to India, probably the toughest place for an overseas batter and to play like that, it feels great. Adds that he got a bit lucky in the second innings as he played and missed a few and wanted to cover the inside edge and looked to employ both the sweeps. Mentions that he changed his technique slightly for this series and he also had shoulder surgery not long ago and it turned out better from the last time he was here probably 3 years back. Ends by saying that his family would be watching back home and they would be proud.
Ben Stokes the skipper of England says that this win has been their greatest triumph since he was made captain. He adds on by saying that he is a great observer and he observed how the Indian spinners operated in the first innings and wanted to implement the same when they came out to bowl. When asked about Tom, he says that there is a lot of effort been done for him, everyone has backed him up to do well and he has proven to be a great asset and hopefully continues to do the same for them. He adds that Ollie Pope’s inning is the reason they won the game and says that it has to be the best overseas innings by an English batter till now. He finally says that the series is a long one but it's always a good thing to start well and they will be looking to continue this in the upcoming games.
The Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma says that the game was played over four days and it is hard to blame one thing but to bottle a lead of 190 runs was heartbreaking. He then goes on to applaud Ollie Pope and says that it is one of the best innings he has seen by an overseas batter in India and thinks that 230 was gettable and they didn't bat well. Adds that at the end of the day, you analyze what went well and didn't go well and they did realize that the bowlers executed their plans but Pope simply batted really well. Goes on to say that he wanted the last pair to take the game into Day 5 but in reality, the lower order showed character and did a much better job than the top order and they wanted to take chances and it just didn't happen and there's a long way to go.
The Presentation ceremony...
The star with the ball for England and the debutant, Tom Hartley is down for a chat. He says that he is very happy and it's still not sunk in till now. He adds that after the first innings, he understood that it is hard work and tough to survive in this standard but the dressing room has been very kind and very good and the skipper has been very supportive in this journey and he is very thankful to everyone for this chance. He adds that the first and the last wickets mean a lot as they take off the pressure. He finishes by saying that reading the game and length is going to be a key on such wickets.
Earlier in the game, Ben Stokes won the toss and opted to bat first on a track that turned a bit from Day 1 and the spinners were always in the game. It was a shoddy display with the bat from England in the first innings and it required a rescue effort from the skipper and a few other batters to take them to a meager total of 246 runs. All Indian bowlers apart from Mohammed Siraj bowled well and contributed with wickets after which Yashasvi Jaiswal came out firing late on Day 1 and made a quickfire 50. Day 2 belonged to the hosts as well as we saw three batters get into the 80s and a few good partnerships took them to 421 runs, with a lead of 190 runs in the bag. At that point, it looked like even an innings wouldn't be far-fetched for India but the English batters fought well and Ollie Pope who was given a bit of stick for playing with jarring hands in the first innings, turned the game completely on its head. The English vice-captain ended just 4 short of what would have been a stellar double hundred but in the end, it was enough for his side to get over the line.
Coming into the final session on Day 4, India were 95/3 and not in much trouble but they were certainly extra watchful. This allowed the English spinners to bowl the way did and keep piling on the pressure by drying up the runs and soon, 95/3 became 119/7. England were on the verge of a win and at that time, they wouldn't have thought that the game would go into Extra Time on Day 4 and in the very last over of extra time as well but it did as KS Bharat and Ravichandran Ashwin put on a gritty stand with the former really playing beautifully. Once Bharat got out though after a 57-run stand, things went downhill again for the hosts and they were 9 down quickly. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj then hung around playing a few false shots like tailenders do but ate away a few runs as well. Tom Hartley though just kept his head down and with the captain's complete faith in him, got that elusive wicket and Ben Stokes and his men notched up a famous win. This win feels extra special as this is only the 4th Test match India have lost at home since 2013 and they have played 47 Tests for those four losses.
WHAT A TEST MATCH WE HAVE JUST WITNESSED! This has been a Test match of epic proportions and it is England who have pulled themselves from the abyss and have taken a  crucial 1-0 lead in the five-match series and these are the matches the players and the fans live for. To be honest, cricketing fans all over the globe have not witnessed one but two fantastic Test matches, one of which concluded a few hours earlier with West Indies defeating Australia at the fortress that is Gabba in unreal fashion and now India and England going toe-to-toe, round after round and just when it looked like the Knockout punch won't come on Day 4, Mohammed Siraj lost his cool and Tom Hartley turned his worst nightmare into a dream debut with 7 wickets in the final innings.

Joe Root To Ravindra Jadeja OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Wow, a moment of unbelievable magic from the English skipper and Ravindra Jadeja is a goner. Joe Root tosses the ball up on the stumps and Jadeja leans on well to punch it to the right of mid on. The batters set off for the quick single but Ben Stokes attacks the ball well, puts in the dive to his right and reverse-flicks it in one swift go back onto the stumps at the bowler's end. The umpires go upstairs and we can see that Jadeja is short of his crease. What a moment in the game and the crowd has been brought down to a pin-drop silence. India still need 112 runs with 4 wickets in hand.

Joe Root To KL Rahul OUT!
OUT! LBW! A huge appeal and the finger goes up. It looked quite straight but KL Rahul has taken the review. Joe Root bowls this one quicker at 91 clicks and on a nagging length around off and middle. The ball turns back in as Rahul goes on the back foot to tuck it away but is beaten and gets hit on the pads. There is nothing on UltraEdge and Ball Tracking comes up with three reds. India lose a second review but more importantly, Joe Root has picked up a massive wicket in the context of the game. India now need 124 runs to win with half the side back in the hut.

We are all set to start the Third and the final session on Day 4. KL Rahul and Axar Patel are walking out to bat for India along with the Umpires and the England team. India needs 136 runs to win and England will look to pick up 7 wickets before that. Tom Hartley (10-1-31-3) will start the attack for England. Let's Play!
... DAY 4, THIRD SESSION ...
Right then, the Test match is nicely poised at the moment where both the teams have a chance to emerge victorious. India still needs 136 runs to win and England needs 7 wickets before that. Time is no factor in this match as there is one full day left tomorrow. The Final session of the day is coming up which is definitely going to keep all of us on the edge of our seats as this session can determine where the result is going to fall on this 1st Test of this series between England and India. Stay tuned for the final session of Day 4 which is going to start in the next 20 minutes.
England on the other hand have been pretty solid with their tactics but they did let it slip in the last half an hour of the session. Tom Hartley seems to have let go of all the jitters from the first innings and bowled brilliantly as he picked all three wickets. Joe Root did bowl well in patches but Ben Stokes would have liked a bit more from him. Jack Leach also bowled a few overs and looked good but they still need to keep their focus and look to take wickets as the runs will keep on coming sooner or later.
SESSION SUMMARY - 29 overs, 95 runs and 3 wickets. Another riveting session of Test cricket has gone by and at the end of it, India still need 136 runs to win with 7 wickets in hand. England looked to be in control of that session for a long time but India have managed to pull it back nicely with an unbeaten stand of 32 runs between KL Rahul and Axar Patel. For India, it wasn't the best of starts as Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill both fell in the same over in the first half an hour or so and then the skipper was also undone by Tom Hartley. Rahul though ha taken his form from the first innings and hasn't let that dropped catch of Ollie Pope bother him too much. Axar, who has been sent up the top order has done a fine job as well.

Tom Hartley To Rohit Sharma OUT!
OUT! LBW! A massive appeal for LBW and after a few seconds, the finger goes up. Rohit Sharma has a word with KL Rahul and opts to review. This is beautifully bowled by Tom Hartley as he slows it right up and drifts it onto the stumps, pulling the length back a few inches yet again. Rohit leans on to defend off the front foot but the ball holds its line and beats the inside edge to hit the pads. There is nothing on UltraEdge and three reds come up on Ball Tracking. A huge wicket for England and Tom Hartley is having a fine second half of his debut Test match as he gets his third victim of the innings.

Ollie Pope has been hit right on the helmet standing close in at silly point and the physio comes out for a concussion check. The umpires also call for Drinks. The first hour or so of the post-Lunch session on Day 4 has belonged to England yet again as they have kept the runs in a fair bit of check and have picked up a couple of wickets as well. Skipper, Rohit Sharma is still out there though and KL Rahul will have to do what he did in the first innings if India are to win this game. It is all slowly boiling up here and the equation for India reads - 183 runs needed with 8 wickets in hand.
