Riding on Jasprit Bumrah's second 5-wicket haul in Test cricket, India inched closer to victory needing just one more wicket to register their first win in the 5-match series. England ended Day 4 of the Trent Bridge Test with 311 for 9 on the board. Adil Rashid (30) and James Anderson (8) were unbeaten at stumps as an extended session came to the end. Chasing a mammoth 521 runs in the fourth innings, England were reeling on 84 for four at lunch on Day 4 but a terrific 169-run partnership between Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes frustrated the Indian bowlers. The duo batted out the entire second session and most part of the third session as the bowlers failed to break the partnership. Even spinner Ravichandran Ashwin proved ineffective as both the batsmen played him with ease. It was the second new ball, that did the trick for India as Virat Kohli took it straightaway after the completion of 80 overs. Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc dismissing Jos Buttler (106) and Jonny Bairstow (for a duck) on consecutive deliveries. In his next over, Bumrah dismissed Chris Woakes with a bouncer for 7 runs. Hardik Pandya joined the party, dismissing well set Ben Stokes (62) with a beautiful delivery. Although Stuart Borad and Adil Rashid notched up a quick-fire 50-run partnership but Bumrah dismissed Broad to claim his fifth wicket of the innings. With just one wicket remaining, India will look to wrap up the game early on Day 5.(SCORECARD)

20:11 IST: Final over before tea comes to an end. Brilliant last over from Mohammed Shami as he has started to get some reverse swing.
20:00 IST: 10 minutes to go for tea break. Ball has started to reverse for Mohammed Shami. Can India get a break-through?

19:38 IST: Review from India. Original decision is not out. Ben Stokes survives because of the umpire's call. The decision could have gone in India's favour. The ball was hitting the stumps but just. Indians are disappointed. ENG 148-4 after 54.3 overs.

19:15 IST: Appeal for a catch! That could have been a disastrous dismissal for Ben Stokes. Forward defence and the ball hits his boot and pops up. The silly point fielder takes the catch and appeals. The replay clearly shows that after hitting the boot the ball bounced off the ground. Ben Stokes survives. ENG 128-4 after 48.5 overs.
19:06 IST: Edged and the ball doesn't carry! For the second time this has happened in two overs of Jasprit Bumrah. The ball fails to carry through to the slips. Bumrah urges the slip-fielders to come a bit forward. ENG 120-4 after 47.1 overs.

18:41 IST: 100 up for England! Punch down the ground and the ball reaches the fence. Ben Stokes presented the full face of his bat on the last ball. Ishant Sharma looks disappointed with himself. ENG 102-4 after 41.3 overs.
18:39 IST: FOUR! Wrong line from Ishant Sharma. On to the pads and Ben Stokes flicks it away through square-leg for a boundary. Partnership between Stokes and Buttler has moved on to 36 runs. ENG 98-4 after 41.1 overs.
18:38 IST: The ball is not doing much at the moment for the Indian pacers. 41 overs have gone by but still there is no hint of reverse swing. ENG 94-4 after 41 overs.
18:32 IST: FOUR! Gorgeous cover drive from Jos Buttler. It was a brilliant effort from substitute fielder Ravindra Jadeja at the boundary but the timing on the ball takes it to the fence. ENG 92-4 after 39.5 overs.
18:30 IST: Sloppy fielding from Mohammed Shami at mid-on. Gives away three easy runs to Ben Stokes. Slips while chasing the ball as well. Ishant is not happy at all. ENG 88-4 after 39.2 overs.
18:25 IST: First run after lunch for England and Ben Stokes receives an applause from the crowd. Little push for single in the vacant extra-cover region. ENG 85-4 after 38.3 overs.
18:18 IST: Another maiden! This this from Hardik Pandya at the other end. England batsmen pretty watchful at the moment. ENG 84-4 after 37 overs.
18:14 IST: Ishant Sharma starts the post-lunch session with a maiden. Hardik Pandya will share the ball from the other end. ENG 84-4 after 36 overs.

17:07 IST: First over in the second innings from all-rounder Hardik Pandya is a maiden. ENG 66-4 after 29 overs.
16:56 IST: Dropped! Jos Buttler survives. It was a difficult take for wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant but will go down as a dropped opportunity. The initial foot movement from Pant was wrong which led to the drop chance. But Bumrah has bowled brilliantly so far in the over. ENG 65-4 after 26.4 overs.
16:50 IST: OUT! Mohammed Shami strikes now. India is on a roll here! Virat Kohli at third slip takes a brilliant reflex catch. Ollie Pope walks back after scoring 16 runs. England in deep trouble now. ENG 62-4 after 25.1 overs.

16:20 IST: FOUR and 50 up for England! Flicked and flicked away fine for a boundary from Ollie Pope. Bumrah strays down the leg side and that was easy pickings for the youngster. Boundary to finish the over. Mohammed Shami will replace Ishant from the other end. ENG 51-2 after 19 overs.
16:10 IST: Maiden! Another tight over from Jasprit Bumrah. He has maintained the pressure from the other end. It has been a difficult morning for the England batsmen. ENG 43-2 after 17 overs.

15:46 IST: OUT! Ishant Strikes again. Angled in from round the wicket, the ball moves across after pitching. Alastair Cook (17) had to play at that one. Both openers are back in the hut now. KL Rahul takes a simple catch at second slip. ENG 32-2 after 12 overs.

14:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Day 4 of the third Test at Trent Bridge.
India captain Virat Kohli's second century of the series strengthened his side's iron grip on the third Test against England at Trent Bridge. Kohli, who fell for 97 in India's first innings, top-scored with 103 as the tourists, looking to bounce back from 2-0 down in a five-match contest, piled up a total of 352 for seven declared. That left England needing a mammoth 521 for victory, albeit with more than two days to get the runs. But no side have made more to win in the fourth innings of a Test than the West Indies' 418 for seven against Australia at St John's, Antigua, in 2003. Kohli's declaration left England with an awkward nine overs in which to bat. But Alastair Cook (nine not out) and Keaton Jennings (13 not out) took them to a close score of 23 without loss. India resumed Monday on 124 for two, already 292 runs in front, with Cheteshwar Pujara 33 not out and Kohli unbeaten on eight. They could dictate terms after skittling England out for 161, with paceman Hardik Pandya taking a stunning five for 28 in six overs. As well as batting collapse, another longstanding problem for England has been their catching and they floored their fifth chance this match when second slip Jos Buttler, a wicket-keeper by trade, grassed a left-handed opportunity when Pujara, on 40, edged James Anderson.
England's woes increased when wicket-keeper and leading batsman Jonny Bairstow left the field after failing to gather a swinging Anderson delivery. An x-ray revealed he had suffered a small fracture to his left middle finger. England's one-day gloveman Buttler took over behind the stumps. It wasn't until Monday's 41st over that India lost their third wicket, with Pujara edging recalled all-rounder Ben Stokes to first slip Cook.
Pujara faced 208 balls, including 19 fours, and put on 113 with Kohli. It was a welcome return to form for Pujara, who averaged just 14 while playing for Yorkshire earlier this season.
Kohli was still on his tea score of 93 not out when his edged drive off an outswinger from Anderson, armed with the new ball, burst through Jennings's hands in the gully. Anderson, whose duels with Kohli have been a feature of this series, buried his head in his hands in despair after the ball went for four. Next ball, Kohli edged Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, just short of Cook.
Kohli was not at his most fluent but this was an ideal innings given India's situation and an edged four off Chris Woakes, his 10th boundary in 191 balls during nearly five hours at the crease, saw the star batsman to a 23rd Test hundred. It was also Kohli's second in three matches after he made 149 -- his maiden Test century in England -- in the series-opener at Edgbaston. (Play fantasy league and win cash daily)
