commentary

6.05pm local: This Indian team has got itself in some great positions, both in South Africa and here in England, only to let things slip. It's a good thing that they're getting there in the first place, but yet another series has fallen victim to their inability of holding onto solid ground. Maybe they'll do that at The Oval, if only a little too late. Today, though, is all about Moeen Ali and England, and their 3-1 series win against the No. 1 Test team. That's all from us. I've been Sagar Chawla bringing you the coverage along with Raju Peethala, Ramakrishnan, Sriram and our scorer Siva. Goodbye!

Moeen Ali, Man of the Match: Great to be back. I have missed Test cricket a lot. Needed a break. Just to appreciate everything in general. To enjoy my cricket again. When I was watching the guys at home, I missed it. Great to come back and contribute to winning a game. Playing in England for a while now, back myself a bit more. Got more confidence from county cricket. Done a lot of hard work with Saqlain. Feel like I'm getting better as a spinner everyday. When they were about eight down, Root asked me if I fancied it (batting at three). Did enjoy the 15 balls I faced. If I do bat there again, I need to tighten up. Something I'm not thinking much about.

Joe Root, England captain: He has, not just in this game but throughout the series. For a young guy (Curran) to have such an influence is outstanding. Credit to the group, they were outstanding throughout. From being up against it on the first morning, character has been a massive strength of this team. Then the skill level to back it up has been phenomenal. For the seamers it was about hitting the surface as hard as possible and for spinners it was about being as aggressive as possible. Keep the catchers in and trust that there would be one ball that would turn the game around. Way we went about how to approach the day's play was outstanding. Bit of time away from this environment can help. Have spoken with Mo about that. Going to the T20 League experiencing a different side of it. Today was probably the best I've seen him bowl in an England shirt. Such a testament to how he's gone about things. That strength and depth of the squad really excites me. When you're in the form he's in, it's a nice luxury to have (about playing him at three). We do bat deep. Has been a great strength for us this series.

Kohli (2/2): Weren't many negatives for us from this game. Need to focus on positives. Have to take heart going into the final Test. It is quite handy to have guys who can strike the ball well in those positions. Once those partnerships get going, it gets frustrating. Every team feels like that, when the lower-order gets runs. They were braver in tough situations than us. Those contributions from lower-order have been significant. Would like to congratulate Sam Curran, a nice find for England and he's doing well. Joe (Root) was saying, it might not look like it but it has been a competitive series. Agree with him, been enjoyable to play. Fun for the people to watch too. Won't throw in the towel, we will come out with same intensity at The Oval.

Kohli, India captain (1/2): I thought England did well to give us that target. They batted well in third innings. Seeing how the pitch was, how the ball was turning, they applied themselves and got to a total that was challenging. Thought we were in with a fifty-fifty chance last night. Didn't get a good start, England applied a lot of pressure. All in all it was a challenging day, we put our best foot forward but it wasn't good enough. Don't think we made too many mistakes today. Credit to them. We never thought like that (of an impending collapse). Me and Jinks did well with that partnership, but if you don't have a partnership before or after it becomes difficult. But we were always under the pump. The pressure was non-stop. We felt the passion of eleven players on the field, wanting to win the Test match for their country. Me and Jinks (Rahane) had the same passion. It was getting competitive. It was tough for England as well that phase. But they pulled it back. That's the beauty of Test cricket. I thought about my dismissal as well in the first innings, if I had carried on we would've got a larger lead. Nothing to take away from Pujara. He was outstanding in the first innings to get us a lead of 30-odd. He played so well to get us that lead.

Stats corner from Deepu Narayanan:

- Only four times before this Test, India went on to lose a Test after getting opposition down for 86 or fewer in the 1st inngs of the match.
26/6 vs Pak, Kolkata, 1999
39/6 vs Pak, Karachi, 2006
68/6 vs Pak, Bengaluru, 1987
81/6 vs Aus, Adelaide, 1992

- Second closest win by runs for England against India after the 31-run win in Edgbaston in the first Test.

- England beating India after conceding a 1st inngs lead:
13 Lord's, 1936 (Won by nine wkts)
67 Trent Bridge, 2011 (Won by 319 runs)
27 Southampton, 2018 (Won by 60 runs)

Anderson: I was praying for something to happen. Mo bowled so well. The pressure that he created was immense. Made our job easier. We were praying for half-chances, few LBWs to go our way. Great for me (when asked about the much hyped Anderson vs Kohli battle). He's (Kohli) their best player. If not, one of the best players in the world. We've put him down in the series a few times but you got to give him credit. Wasn't expecting it (that catch). If Ashwin can get a few away, nerves will start getting to us. So, need to convert those half-chances.

Broad: Fantastic. It's been a brilliant series, quite emotional too. It's been a great series so far, each day you are not really sure which way the Test match is a going to go and it's a great feeling walking off with a series win. Huge credit to both teams for the way they have played. Both teams have shown amazing character. When Ashwin was hitting like that and with just 60 odd left we were a bit down and thinking could they do it? Brilliant feeling any time you win any Test match of a series particularly against a number side in the world. Has been really intense. We have been helped by the pitches in the first three Tests. Our workloads have been manageable, but still tiring. We were very proud as a bowling unit, we have adapted really nicely. When Kohli and Rahane were going like that, we just kept saying one wicket and all we needed was that one breakthrough and we knew we could make things happen.

Ben Stokes: Came here with a bit of pressure after that performance at Trent Bridge. We could have easily crumbled but we showed great character. Pretty special day. The lead that we had was always crucial regardless of their batting line-up. Took me back a few years to score those runs (smiles). I just thought that the time I spent out there was crucial. I said to Stuart I have gone away, away, away, is it too greedy to throw one back in and he said, no it's No. 9 and it worked.

Sam Curran: I can't believe what's happening. It's a special feeling to contribute to the win and most importantly we have won the series. I am just trying to play naturally as I have done for Surrey, luckily a few have come out of the screws nicely.

The pacers from both teams have been superb, almost cancelling each other out. But another major difference area between the teams have been their lower-orders. India were right on top on Day 1 with England reeling at 86/6, but they got away through Curran, just like they had got away from 86/6 at Edgbaston. Those handy partnerships lower down the order mean so much in the context of the game today.

India knew they weren't going to be favourites today. The target was already over 230, and even after nipping out the final two wickets cheaply, history was against them. Kohli and Rahane offered hope in the face of an excruciating attack out of the rough from Moeen Ali, they waded India into a position from where they could fancy their chances. But it all came crashing down, which was always going to happen with Ali being as relentless as he was. In what was pretty much a second innings shootout, that's where the contest was won and lost. India's off-spinner Ravi Ashwin missing his mark with those rough patches, while Moeen Ali hitting it again and again and again. And again.

17:23 Local Time, 16:23 GMT, 21:53 IST: Jubilant scenes on the field and in the crowd. This England team may not be the strongest, there are a lot of problem areas to be dealt with, but they've still put the series beyond India with an unassailable 3-1 lead. Fittingly, it's Sam Curran to wrap it all up. It was always Sam Curran. Be it at Edgbaston or here, whenever England were in trouble, there he was - Super Sam Curran to bail them out. What a series this has been for him.

Sam Curran to Ashwin, out Lbw!! Zoots through low, hits Ashwin behind the ankle and up goes the finger! May have missed leg stump with the angle but India don't have any reviews to challenge it.

Sam Curran to Ashwin, no run, length ball just outside off, Ashwin with a thick inside edge onto his pad

He might've stretched himself a bit too much with that single, Ashwin. Needs the physio to have a look. He's obviously not going to go off now, whatever the problem.

Moeen Ali to Ashwin, SIX, that's a clean strike from Ashwin despite not getting to the pitch. The key was that he went through with the loft over mid-on. Sublime timing from him

Moeen Ali to Ashwin, no run, scooped up off the toe-edge, Root scrambles forward but fails to get there! He wanted to paddle-scoop this over the keeper's head. Went through it too early, thereby bringing the toe-edge as well as short midwicket into play. Just short of Root

Stokes to Ashwin, no run, short ball on leg stump, it was over Ashwin's head so there was no way he could've controlled the hook. As it turns out, he doesn't even get bat on it. Half an appeal from Root at second slip, just in case

Moeen Ali to Shami, out Caught by Anderson!! This time Anderson will get under it at long-on, taken! India's lower order getting rolled over. Flighted ball, Shami was never going to hold himself back there. He jumped down the pitch for a big slog, only to slice it up in the air. England one away from sealing the series. Shami c Anderson b Moeen Ali 8(11) [4s-1]

Moeen Ali to Shami, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Stokes to Ishant, out Lbw!! Skids through from back of a length, traps Ishant in front of middle as he shuffles across. There could have been no other decision from umpire Oxenford. Ishant looks back despondently, maybe a review (?), but India don't have any left. So that's that. Ishant lbw b Stokes 0(5)

Moeen Ali to Rahane, out Lbw!! Rahane in big trouble as he chances a review. It's more out of desperation than anything else. Yeah, he's gone (and so are India?). Three reds. Massive turn out of the rough, so massive that even after going on the back foot to give himself time to adjust, Rahane fails. He's plumb in front of off. That's unplayable from Moeen Ali. England on the brink now.. Rahane lbw b Moeen Ali 51(159) [4s-1]

Moeen Ali to Rahane, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!

Moeen Ali to Pant, out Caught by Cook!! He comes down again looking to biff the ball, but Ali had pulled the length back just a touch this time and thrown it a little wider too. It allowed the room for some turn which caused Pant to slice it off the outside half. Cook runs in from sweeper cover for a fine catch. He wasn't all the way back at the boundary, in which case it would've landed well short. It's all working in England's favour. They're bouncing around Ali in celebration. India's chances waning. Pant c Cook b Moeen Ali 18(12) [4s-2 6s-1]

Moeen Ali to Pant, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Root wasn't happy with that boundary, probably wanted more out of Bairstow at long-off

Moeen Ali to Pant, no run, not says umpire Dharmasena, England don't have reviews left. Probably the right call this. Pant had missed his sweep shot and was struck on the outside of his chest. But this ball turned away from Ali so it would've missed off. He needed it to go on straight there

Moeen Ali to Pant, SIX, very very positive from Rishabh Pant, probably the right way to go. Skips down the track and launches it high and long, well over the ropes. He already has got Root to push mid-on and mid-off back

Stokes to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Root!! England are celebrating as Joe Root claims the catch at second slip. Pandya hangs around, but he will have to rely on conclusive evidence that the ball has bounced, because the soft signal is out. Oh that's gone straight into Root's hands, not even close to the ground. Back of a length, straightens on Pandya and squares him up for the edge. He is a man for the big moments, Stokes. And he's got one third ball after tea. Hardik Pandya c Root b Stokes 0(7)

Stokes to Hardik Pandya, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Stokes to Rahane, 1 run, back of a length outside off, steered away to third man

Welcome back. Rahane and Pandya are sitting on the fence discussing their strategies. What a huge test this is going to be for the Indian lower middle-order. They're still over 100 runs away with Ali bowling beautifully into the rough. It would be something absolutely sensational if they can hold their own today. India need that desperately. This is the series right here. Stokes pumping in..

15:41 Local Time, 14:41 GMT, 20:11 IST: Kohli stands up in the balcony and applauds, almost egging his team on. What an enthralling session, just like the one before it, and just like the 9 before that one. Kohli and Rahane fought ever so hard against the rough, against Ali and against themselves to keep India alive with a 101-run stand. India might have even been getting on top at one stage, as reflected through the mood in the crowd, but Moeen Ali, who must have felt aggrieved earlier on, finally got the deserved wicket of Kohli. His threat from one end has been unwavering, while their seamers have thrown questions of their own from the other. It's a brilliant finish in prospect. Don't miss it. Back soon.

Moeen Ali to Kohli, out Caught by Cook!! Kohli gone. A much simpler chance for Cook this time. Bit of glove, onto pad, and straight to short leg. That's a bizarre review from Kohli. Maybe he didn't feel it? But in that case, he would've gone up straightaway. He took his time, walked up to Rahane while pointing to his forearm and then signalled for the review. Anyway, Ali's persistance finally pays off. He has deserved this wicket. What a big moment in the game just when the Indians were starting to get on top. Kohli c Cook b Moeen Ali 58(130) [4s-4]

Moeen Ali to Kohli, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Drinks. A really testing period for India. 40 runs have been added. Moeen Ali bowled relentlessly into the rough, but Rahane and Kohli handled him with great care. The former in particular looked very solid against the offie. Rashid was brought, but he didn't trouble the Indian batsmen, so Anderson has returned with the ball reversing a bit. Very interesting next hour ahead...

Moeen Ali to Kohli, no run, this is a brilliant call from umpire Kumar Dharmasena. This was a flighted delivery that spun sharply and kept really low, pitched very short, but landed in the rough and didn't rise, Kohli was on the back foot to flick, the ball hits the pad, but the impact was clearly outside off stump. A very tough call to make real-time, but the umpire did well there and England reviewed, only to lose their remaining review. Kohli was sure that he got outside the line there

Kohli is given not out, England review for LBW. Is the impact outside off? Umpire's call will not be enough here. Impact OUTSIDE and England don't have any reviews left.

Short of a length delivery kicks up off the seam and also cuts back in, beats Rahane on the inside edge, the ball flies to the keeper off the thigh pad, too high for LBW as well

Welcome back... You cannot take your eyes off this game. So on that controversial Kohli LBW, third umpire Joel Wilson could have clarified better. The bat had touched the pad before the ball came, so there was a wave on UltraEdge already. And then the ball goes very closely to the bat, there could well have been an edge. You got to look at the seam changing on the ball when it strikes the pad after crossing the bat etc. Wilson could have easily said, I can't conclusively say there's no bat there, so I can't overturn the on-field "Not Out" call.

13:00 local: How big a moment was that? England players are engulfed with a great sense of frustration as they mosey off the field. They think Kohli should have been in his dressing room by now. Moeen Ali got him out lbw - of course the onfield umpire didn't give it, but replays proved otherwise - only to be saved by an umpiring error. India, though, are not complaining. "Umpires are humans afterall and they do make mistakes as well. No point ridiculing them," a theory that Ian Bishop preaches so often. After knocking England off in 5 overs, India came out with a positive intent, but all of it has been snuffed out by a grubber of an inswinger by Broad. Anderson, who wasn't at his best so far, nipped out Pujara and Dhawan before Rahane joined hands with Kohli. These two will hold the key as far as India are concerned. England will know they are one wicket away. It's all revving up for an exciting contest. Back in 40....

Sam Curran to Rahane, no run. Here's Joel Wilson again. Ajinkya Rahane given out lbw. India review: Fair delivery. No bat involved I guess. The impact seems to be outside off on this , and yes. It was indeed well outside off. Not out. Rahane survives, India survive. Rahane shuffled across to this late nip-backer and was beaten on the outside edge as the ball straightened late, height wasn't an issue but the impact always was. Umpire Bruce Oxenford though puts his finger up after a fleeting moment of deliberation

Moeen Ali to Kohli, no run, England review for lbw: Fair delivery. No bat involved. Oh, this looks close. Impact could be the only thing that could save the Indian captain here. Nothing on UltraEdge? Wow. That's a shocker of a decision from the TV umpire Joel Wilson. He believes there's an inside edge on that, but on side-on replays it was clear that the sound was off the bat clipping the pad. Don't think there's an edge on that IMHO. They didn't go for the ball-tracking for obvious reasons. Root isn't pleased, the England team didn't like that. They lose a review for an umpiring fault. Kohli was pressing towards the line of the ball and the ball grips slightly before spinning back sharply past his inside edge. England were very confident and they went up for the review after a breif contemplation

Anderson to Dhawan, out Caught by Stokes!! Unbelievable from Stokes. What a terrific catch. India are three down now and in deep trouble. Anderson bags his second wicket. Pefect line and length it was. Fuller outside off, dragged Dhawan forward - he missed a couple of edges and got away. This time, he couldn't cover the swing and gets a thick outside edge. It flew to gully and Stokes takes it reverse-cupped. England are bossing here. Dhawan c Stokes b Anderson 17(29) [4s-3]

Anderson to Pujara, out Lbw!! Pujara is given out LBW. He's having a word with Dhawan and then challenges the decision. Nothing wrong with the front foot. It has hit Pujara on the back leg. No wave, confirms UltraEdge. HawkEye: Pitching - outside off. Impact - in-line. Wickets - umpire's call. So the on-field decision stays. Massive wicket for England. The centurion of the first innings for India has been nipped out early. Anderson is chuffed to bit, screams his lungs out as soon as umpire Kumar Dharmasena raised his finger. Terrible misjudgement from Pujara. Didn't spot it coming in and plays his defence outside the line. The ball cuts in, beats the inside-edge and thuds him on the back leg. Pujara lbw b Anderson 5(14)

Hawkeye shows that it was clipping the top of leg-pole. So, it would've been umpire's call anyway

Stayed quite low and Rahul didn't get his bat down in time. Nothing much he could've done about it. But what's interesting is that he was still looking down as Broad was approaching the delivery stride. Guess, he wasn't ready there. Maybe. Anyway, he's been castled. Broad is pumped. Replays show that Rahul did get some bat on it - but the toe-end and it rolled into the stumps. Rahul b Broad 0(7)
