India Vs England 1st test, day 4 highlights

Day 4 seemed to be a very good day looking the way England batted. First Strauss was the man to get a century, then Collingwood both making 108 each. The partnership between Strauss and Collingwood continued till the lunch. But soon the wickets started falling and England declared their inning on 311/9 with a very good lead of 386 runs.

But India got a very good start with Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir. India's 100 runs got completed in just 108 balls without loosing any wicket. The openers are giving a lot of hopes to India. At one stage it seemed India could never revive again. But the way openers played is brilliant. Sehwag was outstanding but lost his wicket being lbw in the bowling of Swann who seemed to be the pick of English bowlers.

England Overnight runs till the end of day 3: 173/3
England 2nd inning : 311 / 9 declared.

India  overnight score for 2nd inning 131/1
Sehwag 83, Gambhir -41* , Dravid 2*

India require 256 more runs to win with 1 day and 9 wickets remaining. Enjoy day 5 live on this blog.
