Still reckon need 4 and a bit sessions to bowl India out here.

Expect to see a bit of an acceleration today with the bat

India need 419 runs to win off about 107.0 overs

Odds:

India 17.50, Draw 1.87, England 2.44

Stumps on Day 4 1st Test

India need 381 off around 90 overs. England need 9 wickets to win

Odds:

India 24, Draw 1.72, England 2.60

Didn’t get the fully 17 overs in tonight

India have the batting depth to last the full day. I’d imagine India will look to play safe In the morning session then reassess from there.

Would be fair to say that 1st session belonged to England with 5 wickets

India need 276 runs to win

England need 4 wickets to win

64.0 overs left

Odds:

India 230, Draw 10.50, England 1.10

surprised they even got 26 overs in that session based on how long Ashwin was spending on treatment from all the hits he’s taking… surely it’s not worth getting hit out there that many times with the ball hooping about and spinning a long way and being 6 down.

Fair play to England I don’t think many pundits expected this result.
