Pataudi Trophy 2018 4th Test Match Result England beat India by 60 runs
Bumrah brings the ball in and Jennings played for the outswinger. Gets rapped on the pad and the umpire raises the finger without any hesitation. Best pitch of the series so far. Will look forward to the first 25 overs with the ball. The key now is to work harder than we did at Nottingham," says Kohli, who announces an unchanged XI for the first time as Test captain! Forecast for next four-five days, no major rain. This is a pitch, where you are amazed by the look of the pitch.
Nothing to suggest double pace, patches. There's light grass that might come to play after four days. This looks like a proper Test-match pitch. For the first hour, they'll tackle seamers.
India would want to bat first," says Sanjay Manjrekar. So that brings us to the end of today's coverage. Do join us tomorrow for the second day. For now, it's time to say ta-ta. But Broad allowed only eight as Buttler conceded four byes. The wobble after the ball leaves the batsmen is troubling keeper from both the sides.
Barring the small passage of play where Curran dominated, India's day through and through. Shocking over rate from both sides though. That's 80 overs in the day, only. Lot of word to do for England tomorrow, while India will have the opportunity to bat them out of the game. Will be interesting to see if the ball continues to do so much on day two.
Broad bowls a length ball, outside off, the ball holds its line and Rahul squezzes it through slips for a boundary. Shikhar Dhawan is the only other player than Virat Kohli to be involved in four plus stands in this series so far. Another testing over from Anderson. Rahul though pushed the fifth ball through cover for three. So far he has done all the scoring for India. Only once before today, India conceded plus byes in an away Test in an innings.
An eventful over from Broad. It had the LBW appeal which was too high. Was an attempted cross seam delivery but Broad loses his control and sprays it wide. It was followed by a thick outside edge past the slips. Four slips for Anderson against Dhawan. Five deliveries outside off.
Goes round the wicket and makes Dhawan play one. He does albeit safely to point. This is the first time that five different Indian bowlers have taken plus wickets each in the same Test series. Dhawan and Rahul have sauntered out to the centre. James Anderson to open the attack. India have opted for a light roller. Pacers tried but got stick, especially Pandya and finally Ashwin does the job.
Curran gone for 78, that's precisely how many extra runs India have conceded to England after We will find out soon. England have been bowled out for There are two ways you can look at this. From the toss perspective, this is a brilliant effort from India. A maiden from Bumrah. He is the only limited-overs specialist in this Test bowling line-up. Given the current situation that India find themselves in, he is their best bet to get that final wicket.
Though he didn't manage to get the 10th wicket. He has managed to keep Anderson on strike for the next over. Four dots, a boundary and a single. That's how it's going to be now. Curran will face four balls and then Curran gives Anderson a ball or two to see out the over. Sam Curran is the only England player to be involved in three plus stands in this series so far. Don't forget that this is only his third Test of the series. Slower ball from Shami and on the stumps. Curran waits for it and hammers it down the ground.
Broad faced only two balls in the over. One was a thick edge and the second proved to be his wicket. The batsmen are batting like it's a limited-overs game at the moment and Bumrah is your ideal bowler in such situations. Gets rid of Broad. Nine come in the over. Width on offer and Curran slaps it away to backward point. Those contributions from lower-order have been significant.
Would like to congratulate Sam Curran, a nice find for England and he's doing well. Joe Root was saying, it might not look like it but it has been a competitive series. Agree with him, been enjoyable to play.
Fun for the people to watch too. Won't throw in the towel, we will come out with same intensity at The Oval. I thought England did well to give us that target. They batted well in third innings. Seeing how the pitch was, how the ball was turning, they applied themselves and got to a total that was challenging.
Thought we were in with a fifty-fifty chance last night. Didn't get a good start, England applied a lot of pressure. All in all it was a challenging day, we put our best foot forward but it wasn't good enough. Don't think we made too many mistakes today. We never thought like that of an impending collapse.
Me and Jinks did well with that partnership, but if you don't have a partnership before or after it becomes difficult. But we were always under the pump. The pressure was non-stop. We felt the passion of eleven players on the field, wanting to win the Test match for their country. Me and Jinks Rahane had the same passion.
It was getting competitive. It was tough for England as well that phase. But they pulled it back. That's the beauty of Test cricket. I thought about my dismissal as well in the first innings, if I had carried on we would've got a larger lead.
Nothing to take away from Pujara. He was outstanding in the first innings to get us a lead of odd. He played so well to get us that lead. I was praying for something to happen. Mo bowled so well. The pressure that he created was immense. Made our job easier. We were praying for half-chances, few LBWs to go our way. Great for me when asked about the much hyped Anderson vs Kohli battle. He's Kohli their best player. If not, one of the best players in the world.
We've put him down in the series a few times but you got to give him credit. Wasn't expecting it that catch. If Ashwin can get a few away, nerves will start getting to us. So, need to convert those half-chances. Queensland vs Victoria 1st Match. India tour of England, Venue: Stats corner from Deepu Narayanan: Could be big dramas here if there's a controversial call. Decisive factor for the series could be completely unexpected one: How will Aus go for LBW reviews? Told power supply for ball-tracking not working.
Interesting that match goes on amid close LBW shouts that Aus can't review. Despite a hiccup on the first ball of the day, that needed DRS to keep Ravi Jadeja at the crease, since then India has had the advantage. Australian Test legend Matt Hayden praised India for the intelligent way they have batted since the early pressure on day three in Dharamsala. The Aussie quick looked to have struck with the opening ball of the day, when he had Ravi Jadeja out caught behind.
But the Indian batsman referred the decision to the third umpire, and replays showed no contact was made between bat and ball. Jadeja looked to have struck his pad with his bat when attempting to play a shot, which caused the noise heard by Australian fielders behind the wicket. No wonder Jadeja was so confident for the review.
Heart rate restored to normal IndvAus. Cummins bowled 44 overs across three days in Ranchi, an astonishing return for any fast bowler, particularly one who is only just back from repairing a fragile young body. But the Aussie quick continued his charge in the fourth Test, sending down 21 overs on day two, and sprinting over six kilometres, clearing any doubt that he can handle the workload and helping to capture Indian hearts.
It was with such consistency it made you wonder if he was a human bowling machine. Former Victorian keeper Darren Berry was another who enjoyed seeing Cummins in full flight against the Indians. Berry told SEN that the best sign that Cummins is fit and firing is his ability to bowl quick throughout the day.
The opener grassed two catches on day two in Dharamsala and miscommunication with wicketkeeper Matthew Wade saw him fail to attempt to catch a third chance. Renshaw handed Wriddhiman Saha a life when he put down a simple chance at first slip off the bowling of Pat Cummins. That may come back to bite the Aussies in a big way, given Saha is in great form after scoring a hundred in Ranchi last week. Another big score from the Indian gloveman would spell disaster for the tourists, who need to bowl India out early on day three if they want a first innings lead.
There was much debate before the series on whether Renshaw would stand up to the fierce cauldron that is a tour of India, given his inexperience at Test level. His performances before Dharamsala were impressive, but in this final Test, Renshaw has been on the wane. Some on social media feel his poor performance in the field, along with his cheap dismissal in the first innings, are signs the tour has taken a toll on Renshaw.
That was always going to happen. Matt Renshaw needs to improve his fielding. All at sea at first slip today. Such an easy catch too. Saha will plunder you guys tomorrow!!
Cummins has bowled with serious pace in India. Skipper Steve Smith will call on the new-ball pairing, who have delivered a combined 39 overs in the match so far, to step up again on Monday morning. Cummins and Hazlewood generated a potent mix of pace, bounce, swing and accuracy with the new ball. You can say that he Cummins has been the guy who as a fast bowler has challenged us in this series. Cummins, who suffered a series of serious injuries after shining on debut in , played his second Test last week in Ranchi.
He was sent for precautionary scans then given the green light to back up. India has one hand on the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after dominating the third day of play against Australia.
