  • July05202216:13 (IST)

    Ind vs Eng: Six!

    OMG!!! Root is killing it. This time he has played a reverse-scoop to perfection for a six. He is enjoying his time at the middle and smashing the Indian bowlers as if he would be batting in the nets. This is so demeaning for India.

    The way the duo of Bairstow and Root are playing, this seems like the last break before the match ends. England need just 53 runs. This match is now just about how long India can hold an England victory. 

    ENG 325/3 (69)

  • July05202215:59 (IST)

    Ind vs Eng: Four!

  • July05202215:48 (IST)

    Ind vs Eng: Century For Root

    Joe Root races to his 28th Test century. He has been on song this year and continues his red-hot form. Talking about this knock, in particular, he has looked in great control. 

    ENG 314/3 (66.1)

  • July05202215:45 (IST)

    ENG 300/3 (64.4)

  • July05202215:30 (IST)

    ENG 286/3 (61.1)

  • July05202215:20 (IST)

    Poor bowling this is from Mohammed Shami. He bowled a wide delivery on the leg side to Bairstow and the ball ran for a boundary. Nothing going India’s way at the moment. 

    ENG 281/3 (60.4)

  • July05202215:15 (IST)

    ENG 277/3 (59.4)

  • July05202215:14 (IST)

    Ind vs Eng: Bumrah Into Attack

    Jasprit Bumrah comes into the attack. Can he do the magic for India? England are just 107 runs away from victory with set batters Bairstow and Root at the crease. The Indian bowlers have their task cut out for sure.

  • July05202215:12 (IST)

    Ind vs Eng: Four!
