India Need One Wicket to Seal the Victory

Nottingham, Aug 22: Team India is one wicket way to seal the first victory in the ongoing test series against England. India batted very well in both innings and gave a huge target to England.

In reply, England were 311/9 at stumps on the fourth day while chasing a mammoth 521 in the third Test match here on Tuesday.

Adil Rashid (30) and James Anderson (8) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.
India Jasprit Bumrah broke the backbone of the English batting line-up scalping five wickets in his 29 overs while Ishant Sharma chipped in with two wickets.

Buttler and Stokes did well to survive a few anxious moments even as the stand-in England wicketkeeper started playing his natural game once he got his eyes in towards the end of the first session.

The second session saw English middle-order batsmen Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler showing intent. The duo went on to play the entire session without losing their wickets and helped their team make scoreboard read 173/4.

But after the break and change of ball there was sudden turn of events at Trent Bridge.
Bumrah first dismissed centurion Buttler (106) and then sent packing Johnny Bairstow in the very next delivery to dash the hopes of England.

Broef scores: India 329 352/7 vs England 161 311/9 (Jos Buttler 106 Ben Stokes 62; Jasprit Bumrah 5/85 Ishant Sharma 2/70) at stumps on Day 4.
