Going to need to chase 200+ which is going to be a big ask. Need those last 3 wickets quickly.

Wood is back on and bowling. All 4 results possible still. This is what test cricket is about.

That big partnership yesterday was crucial for India, without that England might be batting already.

Wood doesn't look like he should be bowling really, that injury yesterday was so frustrating.

The game is all about partnerships. The one between Root and Bairstow is what has got England here.

Very frustrating that at the moment I am following on Circinfo. Should get the TV on in about 20 min. Hopefully we will batting by then.

True, Burns deserves credit too for providing some early runs.

Sharma gone too now. 211/8.

Pretty crap from England at the moment, not enough threat here and now need 200.

Looks like some rain coming this afternoon too, hopefully not too much but going to lose some time.

Run rate would currently be 3 per over if the last two wickets fell now. India starting to bat England out of the game. Take too much longer and they won't have time to get us out either.

I am calling it as a draw now.

If these two bat for another half an hour at the run rate they’re going currently, I don’t even think England will go for the win.

It’ll be like that New Zealand test a few months back when we played for the draw despite New Zealand doing an early declaration and only setting 274 in 75 overs.

pretty much already there I reckon.... 230 in 70 overs is too much for this England side....

Yes. It is test cricket and we are not going to throw away the top 3-5 wickets trying to get a challenging rate only to lose.

If India go very attacking with their field and we get off to a flyer and are 100-0, then we would go for it. But I don't think they would do that either.

All academic because we are not looking like getting them all out before lunch currently. Has draw written all over it now.

Can see India insulting us by declaring and then England losing quick wickets before hanging on for a draw.

Quite possible. However, I wouldn't be too surprised if they bat on after lunch either.

Either side will have to go some to lose this from here.

The flip side of test cricket. The match has gone from all four results possible to nailed on draw in under an hour.

EDIT: Interestingly WinViz still has India at 24%. That can't be right! England 1% and 75% draw.

Game has totally gone away from us. Pant was the big wicket and we needed to then finish them off and chase down circa 200. There's no way we win from here now.

Lost it with Bumrah, too much aggression and not enough though. One thing if it were Pant scoring runs....

If they declared now it would be 260 off 64.

The only thing that could have been worse from that session would have been Pant scoring the runs a lot earlier and India all out or put us in just before lunch with us then losing 2 or 3 wickets in those overs.

The only consolation is that neither side should win from here. I am surprised that WinViz had India's chances so high.

We shall see but to bowl a side out in 2 sessions with some rain around too will be a phenomenal performance from India even with the help of some dreadful batting.

Big test for Kohli's captaincy.

Bet he wishes he had Ashwin to call on ... I think he'll take the draw. England will hope they bat on.

Who would have thought having got Pant early, that India would have been in a position to declare. Wheels totally came off for England there. Dreadful couple of hours.

Kohli used up a couple more overs by batting for a couple after lunch too. He has no more expectation of getting into a winning position than England do.

Of course, 2 wickets in the first over or Burns and Sibley get us 50 off the first 8 overs and it is all different.
