INDIA vs ENGLAND: 1st Test Day 4 Review
India will begin day 5 with Cheteshawar Pujara and Rohit Sharma at the crease at 52/1. The visitors need another 157 runs to win. KL Rahul once again got off to a good start but was dismissed by Stuart Broad.
Earlier in the day, Joe Root hit a classy hundred to help his side to 303. The England Captains’ gritty knock was his 21st hundred, filled with sublime cover drives and square cuts. All English batsmen started well but failed to convert their innings into a big one.
Jasprit Bumrah was once again destructor in chief as he picked up a five-wicket haul. He was particularly lethal with the second new ball and cleaned up the tail in no time. Shardul Thakur bowled impressive lines and picked up two wickets. Siraj and Mohammed Shami chipped in with two and one wickets, respectively.
