    Moeen is the epitome of mediocrity. He might surprise a team and run through them once, but he doesn’t have the quality to consistently trouble teams.

    I don’t think he will have a honeymoon series against India again.

    Kohli out.

    Time to see how Rahane and Pandya have shaped up after 3 tests.

    Pant should also do better on this pitch.

    A lead of 100 will also do well . Expect England to be 100/4 . Even if they are 50/0, they will be 60/2 and then from 80:2 to 100/4

    Nasser explained the rule. If the foot is in the air and the bowler has a milli meter of foot behind the line, its a legal ball.

    To me, had Stokes landed the foot, it would be over the line. That's a no ball Jim.

    Doesn't need to be grounded, as long as part of the foot is behind the line when the foot touches down it doesn't matter if it's in the air or not.

    Umpire made the correct call,it was a fair delivery.

    A left-right proper batter combination might work to get us over the trail. Then Pandya can be used later on for quick runs. In fact he should bat below Ashwin as wel.

    After facing 134 balls can you not rotate the strike more often??

    This is what happens when you don't play your natural game. He tried to be too defensive which does not come natural to him.

    Only Pandya and Ashwin left for England to get. The rest are just jokers with the bat.

    Whoever told him to play like that should get a kick in the rear. He was at no point looking to score even a single.
    Perhaps he got carried away looking at Pujara and his tuk tuk.

    Should persist with Pant. Will only get better with experience. Pant's keeping has been good too.

    Its not easy for a youngster to debut playing in England against the likes of Anderson, Broad, Stokes etc.

    Selectors should show some patience with Pant.

    It's okay. He's trying out different approaches and learning. That is to be expected when you bring in a 20 year old into international cricket. You have to give them time because they are learning on the job and not finished products.

    Maybe he will go back to playing his natural game in the second innings.

    Curran and Ali has brought England back in the game.

    If India get all out under 300 or 280 , England should be happy. Runs from Pandya's bat at this point will help.

    England are right back in it. India 70 behind with 5 wickets left, and no Kohli.

    If England can hold India back to around parity in the 1st innings, they have a big chance as India will bat last.

    Could be another Edgbaston....but I reckon that there won't be much in the pitch tomorrow, so shouldn't really see another England collapse...but nowadays, you never know.

    Pujara will stay solid, but key will be Panya and Ashwin. Can they stick around and score some runs to keep Pujara company.

    Maybe he will go back to playing his natural game in the second innings.

    Give pant 10 tests fear free, the rest of the batsmen have been getting a free ride for 30+ tests now

    Only 60 runs behind.

    A half decent partnership and India can get a handy 30-40 run lead.

    One of Ashwin & Pandya need to score 20-30 runs.

    Pant also equals the indian record of Irfan Pathan and Suresh Raina for longest test duck in terms of balls faced (29).

    Will be a fantastic match for sure. Love these matches where 60-70 from one player makes a difference to team's total.

    Root is short of runs. If he gets a 70 odd in 2nd inning alongwith some other notable performance from Bairstow, Stokes, Ali, Buttler, England can get to 250 in 2nd inning as well.

    Ashwin has bailed India out from this situation several times in the past.

    Mediocre Moeen takes his second against the number 1 team. Nas calls him 'Impressive' Moeen Ali...him and Curran the difference so far...

    This guy Pandeya has an unique quality of self destructing. Playing Off-spin is his strength and 2/3 overs, he could have forced Moeen out of attack - instead scoops a dolly at an uncanny spot, put exactly for that shot. Game actually swinging in ENG's favor inch by inch. If Moeen troubles IND batsmen such on Day 2, a target of 200 won't be easy here.

    I don't know why this guy was dropped in the first place. Excellent all rounder.

    A century From Puajara and 30 odd runs from Ashwin will do it for India.

    I had some expectations from Pant and Pandya to score 50 runs between them. But Moeen has taken them out cheaply.
