    India 24/1 at Stumps on Day 1 of 4th Test after England are bowled out for 205

    India face last hurdle to WTC final as Australia pray for England favour
    Ind v Eng, 4th Test, preview

    Heading into the fourth Test against England, India cannot lose the series but still have plenty at stake.

    Overview

    India v England, 4th Test
    Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
    4-8 March, 9:30am local time

    Both teams went into this series in contention to make the World Test Championship final but only one of them, India, can now make it.

    Nevertheless, England have a huge role to play in determining who takes on New Zealand to be crowned the ICC’s first World Test Champions.

    Only a series win will be enough to see India through to the final. A series-drawing win for England in the fourth Test would see the WTC final be a strictly southern hemisphere affair between New Zealand and Australia. Suffice to say, Justin Langer and Tim Paine will both have eyes on Ahmedabad.

    While England have suffered bad defeats in each of the past two Tests, Australia’s hopes of making the final are well and truly alive.

    England started this series with an impressive 227-run win in Chennai, which saw key contributions made from No.1 to 11 in the team. That victory came off the back of a 3-0 series win in Sri Lanka. Joe Root’s team know how to win in Asia. Australia need them to rediscover that this week.

    Remember last time

    In a match that nobody predicted, India beat England inside two days to claim a 2-1 series lead in the third Test, with left-arm finger-spinner Axar Patel leading the way.

    Playing at the world’s biggest cricket stadium in his home state of Gujarat, Patel collected the best match-figures in day-night Test history.

    On day one he took 6/38 as India bowled England out for 112. He picked up a wicket with his first ball of the match when he trapped Jonny Bairstow plumb in front.

    On day two, after India was bowled out for 145, he repeated the trick by bowling Zak Crawley with the first ball of the innings. He finished with figures of 5/32 and a match haul of 11/70 – the most wickets ever taken by a bowler in a day-night Test.

    There were a few positive notes for England in the 10-wicket defeat. Crawley’s 53 in their first innings oozed class, while Jack Leach took 4/54 in India’s first innings. There were also career-best figures for Root, who took 5/8.

    England will be hoping at least two of those three things are cornerstones of a better performance in the fourth Test.

    Look out for

    Zak Crawley – 23 years old and playing in India for the first time, Crawley produced a first innings you simply had to be impressed by.

    A pushed drive off Jasprit Bumrah for his first boundary suggested he was seeing the pink ball well. When he found the rope twice in the next over from Ishant Sharma it became clear he was a threat to India. He went on to hit 10 boundaries in his 83-ball stay and was the lone England batter to pass 20.

    He fell for a duck in the second innings but there is plenty for England to be excited about in Crawley.

    Axar Patel – There are threats left, right and centre from India. Rohit Sharma has been the series’ most consistent batter, Ravichandran Ashwin its most consistent performer and Virat Kohli has repeatedly threatened to dictate terms.

    As good as the veterans have been, Patel will still be the centre of plenty of discussion in the England camp. Just two Tests into his career, the 27-year-old has already taken 18 wickets at 9.44, with three five-wicket hauls to his name.

    Quite a dramatic deterioration in England's batting over the last 6 innings. They started off scoring 578, and now are down to 82!

    Or maybe the Indian bowling has got better? Or the pitch?

    As it will be the same stadium, hoping that the curator will produce another pitch that takes spin.

    Kohli has lost 12 tosses in the last 14 tests against England. He lost all 5 tosses in England last time. Unreal panautiness. I keep thinking this must be one of the most bizarre runs of bad luck in cricket history and surely must get normalised sometime later, but it only seems to getting worse. Surely Rahane needs to become captain only for this.

    Hoping Kohli is saving some of his good luck for the series in England but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Should send Ashwin for the toss. He explained on his channel how he would change his call at the toss depending on the coin used. Smart guy.

    Siraj on Fire. Pumped up, bowling in the 140s and that immaculate length between full and short and with a mouthful to Stokes.


    If he bowls with a full sleeve and is an off-spinner, rest assured he chucks. Amen

    I will put Virat with Kane, Smith is definately the best.

    Babar is nowhere close. Has scored 150 only once or twice

    England should have picked Archer rather than Anderson because Archer has pace and can reverse as well. I think this pitch looks pretty balanced in my opinion in terms of pace and spin assistance.

    Anderson's spell on last day in first test was a masterclass in reverse swing bowling

    Think Siraj got silly and carried away there. He might have actually settled Stokes more now which is dangerous. Stokes is also being helped by Kohli keeping Ashwin away from him

    Cause of Dumb Kaptaan who is bowling Ishant to help Bairstow and Stokes settled down. Kohli is dumb, let’s get Rahane full time captain.

    Spot on. He went for the glory ball instead of trying to set him up

    England have gone in with seven batsmen, and picked only three main bowlers plus Stokes and Root. So Stokes will be taking the new ball. Wrong team selection, defensive thinking.

    This is brilliant captaincy by Kohli, he wants to give ENG a chance. Not bowling Axar and Ashwin in tandem is allowing the batsmen to get their eye in and settle...

    I hope you’re being sarcastic. This captaincy is so bad that I really wish Kohli to get banned for slow over rate or something for WTC(if we make it). We are better without Kohli. His captaincy is overrated.

    You have 2 batsmen at the crease who have been nothing but shooting ducks in this series and have no clue how to play spin. However Kohli decided to pursue with the quicks longer than needed and make their stay at the crease more comfortable. Poor captaincy.

    Horrible horrible wicket! India to fluke another win against England, means naff all! But am happy for all the IT customer service reps who managed to get some time off work to watch this horror show, am ashamed this is on Channel 4 for free in the UK, India are single handedly putting everyone off the Cricket the same way the Great Khali forced millions of viewers to turn off their telly's in North America


    Ah, so this is what it feels like

    Archer looked good in the last test he played. In fact, the best pacer. If England so badly wanted to play only one pacer for whatever reason, I'd have opted for Archer ahead of Anderson despite those great couple of reverse-swinging overs. You've got to be flexible on tours like this and not be stuck up on some bookish theories.
