England are starting at a huge 4th innings target as Yashasvi Jaiswal and India have stormed to a huge lead. The home side is 322 runs ahead at the end of the day with 8 wickets left in the bank. 

England were bowled out for 319 runs in their first innings to give India a lead of 126 runs. The visitors lost their last 7 wickets for just 95 runs as they committed hara-kiri with the bat. 

Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a beautiful century before walking off the field retired hurt. The youngster is batting on 104 runs from 133 balls with 9 fours and 5 sixes. Shubman Gill is also batting well as he is on 65 not out from 120 balls.

Jasprit Bumrah did the star turn with the ball as the Indian Cricket Team got an early wicket. Joe Root was out for 18 caught by Jaiswal while looking to go for a reverse scoop. The next man to go was Jonny Bairstow who was done in by the turn from Kuldeep Yadav. 

Kuldeep Yadav struck again when he dismissed Ben Duckett for 153 caught by Shubman Gill. From there it was all India as the home team started using reverse swing to good effect. Local boy Jadeja got the big fish Ben Stokes playing in his 100th Test out for 41. 

Ben Foakes chipped an easy catch to Rohit Sharma for 13 while Rehan Ahmed was bowled by Siraj for 6. Young Dhruv Jurel got his first stumping when Tom Hartley charged down the track to Jadeja. Siraj then got the final wicket of Anderson as the English team were bowled out after Lunch. 

India lost the wicket of Rohit Sharma for 19 with the openers adding 33 for the 1st wicket. After a period of consolidation, the Indian pair of Jaiswal and Gill opened their arms. The pair have gone past the century run stand before Jaiswal had to retire hurt. Rajat Patidar was out for zero when he fell to Tom Hartley in the dying stages of the game.
