    39.4 caught at leg slip! It's always a dangerous area for Cook, with his urge to walk across his stumps. In the end, he's flapped his bat at the ball almost as an afterthought, and deflected a sharp edge into leg-slip's breadbasket. And that is the sixth time that Cook has fallen to Jadeja in this series, which I do believe equals the record ... 103/1
    43.4 that's the breakthrough! Jennings on the move again, skipping down the pitch to disrupt the length, but he succeeds only in chipping a catch back to the bowler! 110/2
    49.6 big appeal as Root goes down on one knee to sweep, and after a long consultation, Kohli reviews! There's no bat involved, and it was very full ... and hitting leg stump too! It was the length that did for him, too full for the shot, and it gripped just enough after pitching to hold its line. A poor choice of shot to end Root's interest in the series, and renew India's in the match! 126/3
    71.2 urgh. That was a revolting heave from Moeen, and another lackadaisical dismissal. The drip, drip pressure does it for Jadeja, a filthy slog and a simple catch for Ashwin at mid-on. And England are now in deep, deep, deep, doo-doo 192/5
    52.2 Ishant goes full instead, Bairstow flicks to leg... but it goes straight up in the air... and Jadeja takes a BRILLIANT catch running back! What a moment in the match and he made it look so easy. England are four down and Bairstow won't be breaking Vaughan's record either. It was a misbegotten stroke, flipped high towards deep midwicket but Jadeja was immediately sprinting after it, watched the ball down over his shoulder and took it in both hands on the run. Superb work! 129/4
    73.2 gottim, another falls! Stokes closes the face on a tuck to leg and only succeeds in popping it straight off the face into the grateful hands of midwicket. Five for Jadeja and the walls after closing in for England 193/6

    74.6 that's the googly - and that is bowled! Dawson leaves a gap as he attempts to drive and the ball spins sweetly through the gate to hit the off bail! Vindication for Mishra and India have another, three away from 4-0! 196/7
    80.4 full and straight, Rashid tries to work to leg, gets a leading edge - flies to point! India have another, "safe hands" Jadeja pouches it in front of his face and the gambit pays off for Kohli, once again! Rashid looks at the floor, didn't need to anything other than block it. But England are deep in the hole and there's a special kind of gravity there 200/8
    87.3 loops up, taken at short leg... was there glove? Up goes the finger! I think Broad was starting to walk - though that's famously not his style. No need to review, it spat and turned off a length, clearing brushing the glove and ballooning to the close catcher. Off he walks and the dam looks just about fit to burst 207/9
    87.6 gone, it's all over! England are flat on the canvas! Jadeja has seven, India have 4-0, England are beaten into the dust once again. Regulation dismissal as Ball pushed forwards and the edge was snapped up - one-handed by the triple-centurion Nair - before the stadium erupted. Best figures and a maiden ten-for for Jadeja, who's really turned it on today to seal a wonderful series for the home side 207/10
