India vs England 2nd Test, Day 4 Live Cricket Score & Updates:

England, facing a mammoth task in the final innings of the match, lost its first wicket when Patel trapped Dominic Sibley lbw for three. Burns and Dan Lawrence put on 32 for the second wicket before Ashwin had Burns caught at slip as he played against the turn. Six balls later, Patel dismissed nightwatchman Leach for a duck.

Joe Root came out to bat and survived a huge lbw shout before the close of play. In a strange DRS call, the ball seemed to be hitting the stumps but the in-form England captain survived owing to the umpire’s on-field, not-out decision. At stumps, Lawrence was unbeaten on 19 while Root was two not out.

“I have been practising with batting coach Vikram Rathour and would love to credit him with how my batting has come through over the last four or five matches,” Ashwin said. “I played a lot of sweep shots today and we had a plan against Jack Leach. I am thankful the plan paid off.”

Local hero Ravichandran Ashwin delivered a series of body blows to England as the tourists struggled to 53/3 at stumps on day three of the second test against India on Monday. With England needing an unlikely 482 for victory, Ashwin followed up his century with the bat by dismissing Rory Burns for 25 while fellow spinner Axar Patel claimed 2/15.
