Date: Thursday, 30 August, 2018 23:46 IST Match Status: Yet to Start
  • 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.

  • Gaurav Joshi reviews the first day of the fourth Test with Sunandan Lele. 

  • After 4 overs,India 19/0 ( Shikhar Dhawan 3 , Lokesh Rahul 11)

    12 off the last over of the day. Expensive one. 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. 

    Anyways, it's stumps on Day 1. India are 19/0.

    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. 

  • After 4 overs,India 19/0 ( Shikhar Dhawan 3 , Lokesh Rahul 11)

    12 off the last over of the day. Expensive one. 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. 

    Anyways, it's stumps on Day 1. India are 19/0. 

  • FOUR! Broad bowls a length ball, outside off, the ball holds its line and Rahul squezzes it through slips for a boundary. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Shikhar Dhawan is the only other player than Virat Kohli to be involved in four 50-plus stands in this series so far.

  • After 3 overs,India 7/0 ( Shikhar Dhawan 0 , Lokesh Rahul 6)

    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. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Only once before today, India conceded 20-plus byes in an away Test in an innings. That Test was played against Sri Lanka at Colombo (RPS) in 1997.

  • After 2 overs,India 4/0 ( Shikhar Dhawan 0 , Lokesh Rahul 3)

    An eventful over from Broad. It had the LBW appeal which was too high. A wide delivery. 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. Three runs taken. India are away. 

  • After 1 overs,India 0/0 ( Shikhar Dhawan 0 , Lokesh Rahul 0)

    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. A maiden. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is the first time that five different Indian bowlers have taken 10-plus wickets each in the same Test series. (Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravi Ashwin, Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya)

  • Dhawan and Rahul have sauntered out to the centre. James Anderson to open the attack. 

  • India have opted for a light roller.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at The Rose Bowl

    Bowled him. 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 86-6. 80-odd too many runs. 246 is a fighting total, if the ball continues to move like this. We will find out soon. 11 overs remaining, or about 15 minutes of play. 

  • England have been bowled out for 246. There are two ways you can look at this. From the toss perspective, this is a brilliant effort from India. But remember they had England at 86/6 at one stage so this is some recovery from the hosts. 

    246 though isn't a daunting task given the pitch and the conditions.

  • OUT! Bowled' em. Curran tries to smack one across the line and misses it completely. The ball crashes onto his stumps. He is dismissed for 78. 

    Sam Curran b Ashwin 78(136)

  • After 76 overs,England 245/9 ( Sam Curran 78 , James Anderson 0)

    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. 

  • After 75 overs,England 245/9 ( Sam Curran 78 , James Anderson 0)

    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. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Sam Curran is the only England player to be involved in three 50-plus stands in this series so far. Don't forget that this is only his third Test of the series.

  • FOUR! Slower ball from Shami and on the stumps. Curran waits for it and hammers it down the ground. 

  • After 74 overs,England 240/9 ( Sam Curran 73 , )

    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. 

  • OUT! Broad has lost his wicket ball after changing his bat. Bumrah beats Broad with pace and traps him  LBW. 

    Broad lbw b Bumrah 17(31)

  • FOUR! Whattay shot. Width on offer and Curran slaps it away to backward point. 

  • After 73 overs,England 231/8 ( Sam Curran 65 , Stuart Broad 16)

    Shami comes back into the attack with Curran attacking the spinner. Concedes only three runs but this partnership is now becoming frustrating for India. 

  • Been a huge problem for some time now!

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at The Rose Bowl

    And just like 50-partnership for Curran and Broad. Even at 86-6 you think they will get one partnership. However, accounting for that, since the score crossed 150, these have been bonus runs for England.

  • After 72 overs,England 228/8 ( Sam Curran 63 , Stuart Broad 15)

    The 50-run stand is up between Curran and Broad. Lower-order batsmen continue to score runs against India. Seven off the over. Pandya meanwhile is having a horrific day with the ball. He may have dismissed Cook but has leaked 51 runs in 8 overs...

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Players scoring at least two fifties in a Test series batting at No.8 or lower and having an age 21 or less:

    Albert Trott v England, 1895
    Kapil Dev v Pakistan, 1979-80
    Mark Boucher v Pakistan, 1998
    SAM CURRAN v India, 2018*

  • After 71 overs,England 221/8 ( Sam Curran 61 , Stuart Broad 10)

    A lovely passage of play for England this. They are scoring runs quickly and India have lost a review as well. Broad is rapped on the pad and India review. But replays show that the impact was outside off. India lose a review. The final ball? Broad edges one and it goes in between Pant and Rahane. It races away to the fence as well. 

  • After 70 overs,England 217/8 ( Sam Curran 61 , Stuart Broad 6)

    Hardik Pandya returns and the runs continue to flow in the next over. England clearly are trying to take advantage of the tired Indian bowlers. 11 come in the over (four legbyes). 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at The Rose Bowl

    Six. Fifty for Curran. 200 up for England. It isn't to say India have lost their grip on the game, but England now have a fighting chance and it is all down to grit shown by this young man. What a knock so far, and richly deserved applause from everyone at the Rose Bowl. We have a game on our hands. 

  • After 69 overs,England 206/8 ( Sam Curran 59 , Stuart Broad 1)

    Well, well... Curran has upped the ante. The message in the drink break seems to be: go after them. 12 off the over. 

  • FOUR! Curran kneels and seeps it through midwicket. 

  • What a way to get to his second fifty. Sam Curran reaches there with a massive six over cow corner. 

  • After 68 overs,England 194/8 ( Sam Curran 47 , Stuart Broad 1)

    Bumrah continues. Could be the last over before drinks and he bowls a maiden. Time for drinks. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Three or more Indian pacers taking two or more wickets in a same Test innings most times in away Tests in a year:

    5 - 2018
    5 - 2014
    4 - 2011

  • After 67 overs,England 194/8 ( Sam Curran 47 , Stuart Broad 1)

    Pant. Leg side deliveries. Four byes. Repeat. 22 byes in the match now. A boundary too. Curran is one hit away from his 50 now. England six away from 200. 

  • FOUR! Cracking shot. Too full and outside off, Curran doesn't think twice before throwing the kitchen sink at it. The ball races away to the cover fence.

  • The Master is delighted!

  • After 66 overs,England 185/8 ( Sam Curran 43 , Stuart Broad 1)

    The story of Pant and the leg side byes continue. Nothing he can do to stop them. Nothing he can do to stop them from going against his name. Bumrah tries to bowl a yorker but goes the wrong line and the ball races away to the fence. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at The Rose Bowl

    Viewing on replay first thought was that it was too down leg and DRS confirmed that. But England have no reviews left to play with. Ishant gets Rashid LBW. There are still 25 overs left in the day. India's over-rate has been poor to say the least. 

  • After 65 overs,England 179/8 ( Sam Curran 42 , Stuart Broad 1)

    Ishant did get rid of Adil Rashid but a review would've saved the latter. Replays showed it was missing leg. Broad is the new man in. Gets off the mark with a single. Meanwhile, Curran is 8 away from a 50. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Indian spinners to take 100 wickets in away Tests:

    Anil Kumble
    Harbhajan Singh
    Bishen Bedi
    Bhagwath Chandrasekhar
    RAVI ASHWIN*

  • OUT! Ishant Sharma collects his second wicket. Bowls the inswinger to Rashid, who misses it completely. The ball crashes onto his pad and the umpire raises his finger. England don't have any reviews. 

    Adil Rashid lbw b Ishant 6(14)

  • After 64 overs,England 175/7 ( Sam Curran 41 , Adil Rashid 4)

    As expected Bumrah returns to the attack. Bowls a delivery that bounces awkwardly and hits the shoulder of Rashid's bat. He calls for a single which is completed. One in the over. 

  • Jasprit Bumrah reintroduced into the attack. 

  • After 63 overs,England 174/7 ( Sam Curran 41 , Adil Rashid 3)

    Ishant allows two runs in his 14th over. Could be his last for the time being. Maybe India would want to bring back Bumrah or Hardik for a spell. 

  • After 62 overs,England 172/7 ( Sam Curran 40 , Adil Rashid 2)

    Ashwin to Curran. Sees out the first four balls and punches the fifth ball through cover for a single and Rashid works around the final ball to square leg. 

Latest updates: 12 off the last over of the day. Expensive one. 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.

Anyways, it's stumps on Day 1. India are 19/0.

Preview: After a morale-boosting win at Nottingham, India will be aiming to level the five-match rubber when they take on England in the fourth cricket Test starting at the Rose Bowl Ground here from Thursday.

After a narrow 31-run loss in the first Test at Edgbaston, the visitors suffered an innings defeat at Lord's and were on the verge of losing the series. However, the Virat Kohli-led Indian team bounced back in the third Test to register an emphatic 203-run victory, keeping the series alive.

Kohli's side still trail 1-2 in the series and will be eyeing to replicate their previous show to level the series before going to the decider.

On Thursday, the Indian skipper is most likely expected to stick with the winning combination.

Kohli currently leads the run charts with 440 runs, which includes two centuries and as many half-centuries and once again, the Indian batting will more or less depend on the 29-year-old.

Vice captain Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara scored 81 and 72 runs respectively in the third Test and both will need to repeat their performance here.

With Murali Vijay axed from the remainder of the series, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul would once again open India's batting, while Hardik Pandya is likely to be retained in the playing XI after his all-round show in the third Test.

Hardik had bagged six wickets conceding 50 runs at Nottingham beside playing an unbeaten 52-run knock in the second innings.

In the bowling department, the visitors would in all likelihood opt for three pacers, keeping in mind the green-top laid out for the fourth Test.

The trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami returned a handful from the third Test, with Bumrah's fifer ripping through the English batting order in the second essay.

Ravichandran Ashwin is expected to recover from his injury and will shoulder the responsibility as the lone spinner in the side, and in case of a forced change, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja is already warming the bench for the first three Tests.

On the other hand, England will hope their misfiring opening combination of Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings to give them a decent start.

England's batting so far, has revolved around the likes of skipper Joe Root, Jos Buttler and injured stumper Jonny Bairstow, who is expected to play as a specialist batsman in the fourth Test.

Batsman James Vince was called up to the England squad as cover for Bairstow, but there are growing calls for his inclusion into the playing eleven nevertheless.

The bowling unit will once again be on expected lines with the star pair of James Anderson and Stuart Broad leading the attack that comprises all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes.

It will be interesting to see whether England will persist with leg-spinner Adil Rashid or bring in an additional batsman and part-time spinner in Moeen Ali to bolster their batting.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant (WK), Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.

England: Joe Root (Captain), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Jos Buttler (WK), Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, James Vince.
