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
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.
