What an exciting final day of cricket awaits us. A flat pitch. England can actually go on and win this. Our middle order stuck it in, but Pant and Thakur, after biding so much time to get to their 50s, threw it away, trying to take the game by the scruff of its neck.
After a first-innings collapse, it is fair to say that scoring 400 plus in the second innings meant batting definitely got a lot easier. However, the Indian bowlers were not consistent at the beginning of the fourth innings and as a result, both the openers settled into fluent batting.
I have never seen Jadeja ball this bad. Often so consistent with his line and length, he was seen spraying it all over the pitch. A lot of criticism for not selecting Ashwin for this test. Hope it does not come back and bite Kohli. He backs his players to the hilt anyway.
