    England [246 & 271] beat India [273 & 184] by 60 runs to take an unassailable 3-1 series lead

    Might see a result today. England effectively 233/8 in the third dig.

    Can India pull it off? Discuss here.

    What India's recent 4th inning chasing history?

    Looking the current batting form, looks very unlikely.

    I doubt India wins, especially if the lead gets to 300, which isn’t highly unlikely with 2 wickets to go and Curran still in play.

    Indian local media are mostly expecting India to win! Not sure if they followed Indian test team closely away from home (At home anyways India won't get into this situation in the first place!) Probably this is to imbalance odds in the betting meter! It will be a remarkable effort if India chase this down, and probably they can feel more confident in coming matches/coming overseas tours!

    I don't know from where this figure of 300 is cropping up everywhere. England are effectively 233/8 and India could well end up chasing 240-250 and not 300.

    Agree but even 240 will be difficult. The bowl is going up and down and England's bowlers apart from curran who are tall can exploit that . I would say right now it is 60-40 in Englands favor. Shami needs to get broad out ASAP

    Do you think it will be worth a gamble to send Pandya up the order just to see if he can hit Moeen off his lenghts?

    Rishabh Pant should be asked to open. He is not scoring runs at his usual position. Might as well give him hard new ball. Even 20-30 will be a bonus.

    Whatever the target, Pujara expects 'a good show' from Indian batsmen


    Cheteshwar Pujara conceded that India could have batted better in the first innings in Southampton but maintained that with the surface slowing down, the Indian batsmen have a good chance of chasing whatever total they are set.

    India had begun day three of the fourth Test against England at Southampton with a slender first-innings lead but ended it trailing England by 233 runs, with two wickets still to get. With 260/8 in the second innings, the hosts have regained their feet after what was a long day for the Indians, but not necessarily a tough one, according to their first-innings centurion, Cheteshwar Pujara.

    "I don't think it was a tough day for us," Pujara said. "Looking at the pitch, it has slowed down a bit. Looks like it's slightly easier to bat and maybe we have got a lot of experience playing in such conditions back home, [something] our batsmen would have realised."

    England were helped by a fine half-century by Jos Buttler (69) and valuable contributions from captain Joe Root (48) and Sam Curran, who built on his half-century in the first innings with an unbeaten 37 on Saturday, ensuring that the visitors, who are 2-1 down the series, will be chasing at least around 250 when they bat last.

    "We started off well in the first innings but we lost too many wickets in the middle phase. If we had batted well, we would have got 100 or 150-run lead, but that is something in the past," Pujara said of India's first-innings effort, where they had slipped from 161/3 to 195/8 before Pujara led a rearguard with Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah, with the last two wickets adding a valuable 78 runs.

    "But all the batsmen have realised what they need to do and I think we will put up a good show in the second innings and bowl them out early tomorrow."

    This Test is also the first occasion when any Indian batsmen other than Virat Kohli scored a century in the series as Pujara went one up on his half-century at Trent Bridge, where he was dismissed on 72 in the second innings, to score an unbeaten 132. The 30-year-old credited his runs in the last Test match for this innings.

    "The most important thing was to score some runs in the last Test match," Pujara said. "I had been batting well throughout the season, although I didn't get too many runs in county cricket, but I was playing on some challenging wickets and sometimes, even if everything is correct, you do get out.

    "So I just accepted that fact and kept working on my game. I don't think there was anything wrong with my technique or with my game. I just trusted it and it eventually paid [off] in the last Test match and once I got fifty, I knew I was up for a big one."

    While Pujara batted for almost the whole of day two, his teammate Ravichandran Ashwin bowled 35 overs on day three, but could manage only a solitary wicket of Ben Stokes. The Indian off-spinner consistently beat the outside edge of both right and left-handed batsmen, extracting turn out of the rough created by the fast bowlers' foot marks, but could not translate those opportunities into wickets.

    But Pujara didn't believe Ashwin had an off day. "I don't think he (Ashwin) had a bad day. He didn't get too many wickets but he still kept on bowling in the right areas," Pujara said.

    "Sometimes as a bowler you do have such days when you're bowling well but you might not end up picking too many wickets. So someone like him ... I think he is a clever bowler and he has done really well for us throughout the domestic season and even overseas, so I don't think he has bowled badly at all.

    "The pitch has slowed down a lot and that might be the reason some of his balls didn't go through as much as he might have wanted."

    India are set to chase a moderately steep target on a surface that although has been touted as the best of the series by both captains, but hasn't been easy to score on. Does Pujara think India have the game to score that many on the last two days?

    "Looking at this pitch, I think it always slows down a bit, but we have played on such wickets in India that tend to slow down as the game progresses," he said. "And even the bounce is low, so most of our batters are used to such bounce and that could be in our favour in the second innings."

    As India begin their pursuit of chasing whatever England set them, they should be vary of Moeen Ali, who picked up a five-wicket haul in the first innings and was the wrecker-in-chief for the visitors, as they lost five wickets for 30-odd runs in 14.1 overs.

    "I think when he bowled in the first innings, the wicket was a little quicker and some of our batters could have batted a bit better," he said. "But he (Moeen) is a good bowler – I am not trying to take any credit away from the way he bowled. But we still should have batted better against him and in the second innings batters will have a better game plan against Moeen."

    We have shown great character to fight back: Stuart Broad

    England fast bowler Stuart Broad is proud of the way his team has performed in the fourth Test against India at Southampton, highlighting that it’s their fighting spirit which has kept them alive in the game. From 122/5, England were revived by Ben Stokes (30), Jos Buttler (69) and Sam Curran (37*) to end day three at Southampton on 260/8 – a lead of 233.

    Writing for the Daily Mail, Broad lauded Moeen Ali and Sam Curran’s contributions, along with the others, as England wrested back advantage over India.

    “What I’ve really enjoyed about this game is the character we’ve shown to keep fighting back. We were 86 for six on the first day before Sam Curran batted brilliantly for 78. Then India were 140-odd for two on Friday before Moeen Ali got to work with his off-spin,” Broad said.

    “Even on Saturday, we were in a spot of bother until Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler knuckled down. Stokes’ 30 felt more like 60 and Jos’s 69 was more like a hundred. We may not be making the totals we’d like but we’re finding a way of putting pressure on India.”

    Broad was particularly impressed with of 20-year-old Curran, whose all-round exploits have become the talk of the Test series. In the first Test at Edgbaston, Curran dented India with the ball picking up 4/74 in India’s first innings. After missing the third Test at Lord’s, Curran was drafted back into the England side and dug England put of trouble with a counter-attacking 78 in the first innings. In the second inning, Curran is unbeaten on 37.

    As for Sam, what you’d say about him. That’s what international cricket is about. Sometimes you look for character over skill. He keeps scoring important runs and he’s also chipped in with the wicket of Virat Kohli.

    We also keep talking about the importance of 50 partnerships down the order and I managed to put on some runs with Sam in our first innings. If you’re all out for 120, the game’s gone. But if you can scrape 240, as we did, then you’re in with a chance. It’s up to us now to seal the series. It’s going to be a fascinating day.

    Broad was no short of praises for his long-time team-mate Ali, who has been phenomenal for England in this Test. From scoring a dogged 40 in the first innings to picking up a five-wicket haul, Ali couldn’t have hoped for a better performance in his comeback Test. With the surface beginning to turn, he is expected to repeat his first-innings performance as England aim at sealing the series.

    “It’s been great to see Mo and Sam do so well. Mo’s come off a six-for and a double-hundred for Worcester which is always a good place to be. I think he’s at his best when he’s controlling his spell — how he wants to bowl, how to set his field,” Broad said.

    “If you’re a fan of cricket, get down to the Ageas Bowl on Sunday because it could be a cracker. We’ll need 10 wickets and India will face a tough run chase. Whoever ends up winning, this game has summed up the best of Test cricket. Every ball counts.”

    If:

    1. Poms set a target around 250
    2. Kohli gets close to a hundred
    3. Two others from the top 7 get half-centuries each

    Then India can win this.

    But a lot of "ifs" involved...

    Ashwin has been a disaapointment. More so when a nobody like Moeen Ali is running through his team at the other end. Indian batsmen have made Ashwin look worse with their failures. Mar jao dubb k khhotteyo.

    If England go on to lose, it will be partially because of the way they have run between wickets. Root was suicidal and Curran just was desperate. I am sure Anderson is more than equipped to face ashwin . Very poor froom England

    It’s very difficult to chase 245 on this wicket - I said this yesterday and that wicket of Rahul just proved my point.

    Kohli needs to score big - even then he needs to play out of his skin and others help him if India have any chance.

    Rahul played in all the tests in this series and hasn't impressed anyone even in 1 inning.

    I read on this forum that he might be better than Kohli. Analysis such as this makes me think every Indian fan on this forum is just here to troll.

    I actually predicted 2-1 to England before the series.

    I was expecting a couple of late summer flat pitches that would have yielded a couple of draws, but the pitches have had more bite than usual at this stage of the English summer, and batsmen on both sides have lacked discipline.

    Could be 3-2 to any side, but if India go down 3-1 today, England might flatten them in the fifth Test.

    All of the previous 7? Yes, unfair.

    But I admit 3 out of those last 7 came from very bad shots - like Edgbaston test.

    I have read that these set of Duke balls are darker and do a bit more than the previously used balls.

    Yeah. As if he was setting the world on fire in the previous innings. He should get one last chance in the next test and should be thrown out for an year atleast if he fails again. His fans won't even have that excuse of him not getting enough chances now.

    Don't pay attention to those stupid comments. Barring kohli, not a single batsman in currently Indian lineup has the ability to play quality fast or spin bowling.

    Rahul is going through a mental blockage where he has no idea which bowl will come in and which will go away from him. In the way, one stays low and takes his wicket.

    He must be feeling like when will this tour end. He needs to start from scratch for the next tours.

    I’m not here making outlandish statements. If someone calls you out for your rubbish, its not trolling. “India as good as Australia of 2000s/West Indies of 70s”, “Kohli not even the most popular member of the team” etc. Not everyone here will suck up to such rubbish like @Mamoon, sorry.

    Rahul scores only in the dream of his delusional fans.

    Guy is worse than mast tailenders of England and Australia team. Even adil Rashid has better defense than him.

    F_C was obviously on a windup with this whole Rahul > Kohli narrative. If you react to windups, it is your problem.

    Everyone on this forum has been way too hard on the openers.

    Vijay and Jennings have been poor, agreed.

    But the others have done well in my opinion. These have been incredibly difficult conditions to bat in for both teams. I have seen every Indian to England since '96 and this has been the most bowler friendly series out of all of them.

    Sometimes one just has to give credit to the bolwers. Both teams have extremely good fast bowlers and they have made the most of the conditions and reaped rewards.

    KL Rahul has underperformed by his potential. For sure. But given the conditions and that this is his first tour to England he hasn't done that bad that he deserves to be kicked out.

    Guy just got clean bowled for a duck. Scored 20 or something in the first innings and averaging only 14 in the ongoing test series. This guy is the epitome of mediocrity.
