🇮🇳India's progress in the 4⃣th Day hasn't been as smooth as they would've liked but the deficit has been reduced⬇ to 100-odd runs. The hosts lost their captain and vice captain in the morning☀ session but R Ashwin⭐ & Wriddhiman Saha have held fort.
Virat Kohli & Ajinkya Rahane started cautiously. Predictably the bowlers tested Rahane with short balls who dealt with them quite easily on a relatively slow pitch. However, he fell to the left-arm spin of Ansari💫, missing a quicker one that nicked the top of the stumps. A couple of overs after the wicket, Kohli was dismissed in bizarre fashion😳. He went deep into the crease pull a short ball from Adil Rashid and unwittingly his left leg disturbed the stumps😖. A lucky🍀 break for the visitors who smelt blood and tried to bring the Indian innings to a premature end. Their efforts were thwarted✋ by the lower-order duo of Ashwin & Saha with a neat little partnership🙌. India had their share of luck too, when Bairstow failed to hold on to a catch, diving low to his right after Saha nicked a delivery from Ben Stokes.
India need to bat as long as possible to wipe off the first innings deficit. England will continue to attack👊 after Lunch🍴 to give themselves a chance to win the Test.
