ENG vs IND, 4th Test Live Cricket Score Updates: India take 2-1 series lead! A memorable bowling performance from India, taking 10 wickets in two sessions and a few more overs on Day 5, on a pitch that didn't have any real demons. This team is amazing. This bowling attack is beyond world class. Nothing is impossible for these guys.

21:44 (IST)

Time for us to say goodbye! We are still buzzing with the incredible win that is now becoming a regular affair with this Indian team. They lead the series 2-1 and easily have been the best team so far. Thanks for joining us. We will keep bringing the best from sports for you.

21:40 (IST)

Rohit Sharma:

"Wanted to be on the field but getting that hundred was special. It was a great effort from batting unit. We just kept our head down and batted the situation. I don't think too much about that (lack of overseas hundred). It's important to embrace the challenge, back in Durham we had time off to look at our training and technique, after WTC we had 20-25 days and that was a game-changer."

He expects to be fit for the final Test.

21:35 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "I think the best thing about both the games has been the character the team has showed. We are not looking to survive in this game. This is among the top three bowling performances I have witnessed as India captain. It's relative what you call flat, field wasn't wet like the first three days, ball got scuffed up nicely, one side heavier, and exploited reverse swing perfectly. We believed as a team that we could get all ten wickets. Bumrah said give me the ball. He bowled that spell and swung the game in our favour with those two huge wickets. What Shardul has done in this game stands out. His two fifties deflated the opposition. I think he batted well in both the innings. Everyone is happy with the win. It gives us more motivation to win the next Test."

21:35 (IST)

Rohit Sharma is the player of the match. 

21:31 (IST)

Joe Root:

"Frustrating not to get something out of the game. Credit to India for making the ball to reverse, outstanding bowling by Bumrah. We got to be more ruthless as the team, to be clinical, not be comfy, make big partnerships. We have played good cricket and important to remember that. Injuries have been frustrating, but those guys that have had the opportunity have been excellent." 

21:20 (IST)

Special, special win! 

21:18 (IST)

India were bowled out for 191 in the first innings and England took a 99-run lead, but as it's the case nowadays with this team, it's never over till it's over. Rohit Sharma's brilliance, Chetshwar Pujara's useful knock and vital lower-order contributions from Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur helped India set an imposing target of 368. 

England made a good start with a 100-run opening partnership and at one stage it looked like they could go for a win, but somehow, on a not so responsive pitch, Indian bowlers kept taking regular wickets and that Jasprit Bumrah incredible spell in the middle where he cleaned up Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow set the tone as visitors eventually clinched a 157-run win.

21:18 (IST)

Stunning bowling performance! 

21:17 (IST)

Take a bow, Team India! 

21:13 (IST)

India take 2-1 series lead! 

A memorable bowling performance from India, taking 10 wickets in two sessions and a few more overs on Day 5, on a pitch that didn't have any real demons. This team is amazing. This bowling attack is beyond world class. Nothing is impossible for these guys.

ENG vs IND, 4th Test Live Cricket Score Updates: India take 2-1 series lead! A memorable bowling performance from India, taking 10 wickets in two sessions and a few more overs on Day 5, on a pitch that didn't have any real demons. This team is amazing. This bowling attack is beyond world class. Nothing is impossible for these guys.

Day 4 report: Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed held firm on Sunday to give England hope of a record-breaking win in the fourth Test against India at the Oval.

England were 77-0 at the close of the fourth day, needing a further 291 runs to reach a daunting target of 368 after India had piled up 466 in their second innings, with Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur sharing a stand of exactly 100.

But left-hander Burns was 31 not out on his Surrey home ground and fellow opener Hameed 43 not out to set up a tantalising finish, with this five-match series already intriguingly poised at 1-1.

India have again omitted off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, a bowler with 413 Test wickets to his credit but yet to feature this series, on an Oval pitch renowned for taking turn late in the game.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja bowled tidily but without success in a spell of 0-28 in 13 overs.

"It's poised to be an excellent game, I thought the boys batted excellently tonight," England all-rounder Moeen Ali told Sky Sports. "Jadeja is going to be the biggest threat."

Meanwhile India batting coach Vikram Rathour told reporters: "Jadeja will play a massive role tomorrow...He's bowled really well today, with a lot of control and did create opportunities. Tomorrow, with a little bit of luck, I think those opportunities will turn into wickets."

And the odds are still in the tourists' favour.

The most England have made more to win in the fourth innings of a Test is 362-9, requiring 359, against Australia at Headingley in 2019.

But Ben Stokes, whose unbeaten century saw England to that thrilling one-wicket win two years ago, is not playing in this series while the all-rounder takes a mental health break from all cricket.

When India captain Virat Kohli was caught at slip off spinner Moeen for 44 - his 21st successive Test innings without a hundred -- India had a healthy but not unassailable lead of 213 runs.

Pant (50) and Thakur (60), however, shared a partnership of 100 in just 155 balls.

For Thakur, fit following a hamstring injury that had kept him out since the drawn first Test in Nottingham, it was his second fifty of the match following his 57 in India's first-innings 191.

Even James Anderson, Test cricket's most successful fast bowler, was made to look every one of his 39 years when Thakur hoisted him through deep midwicket, with the ball no longer deviating in the air or off the pitch.

England's plight was summed up when, with India 376-6, Pant was sent back by Thakur after going for a needlessly risky single on 37 only for Moeen to miss with a shy at the stumps from midwicket while Hameed, who fumbled the return, also failed to run him out.

Thakur's third fifty in four Tests came in just 65 balls, including five fours and a superb straight six off seamer Ollie Robinson.

England captain Joe Root eventually had Thakur edging his occasional off-spin to Craig Overton at slip before Pant, batting responsibly after repeatedly giving his wicket away this series, was caught and bowled by Moeen.
