BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson2976252.131407000
43.4 to RG Sharma, this is a genius at work. After moving a couple away, he bowls one that jags back in after pitching. Once you start threatening both edges, you are in play, but you have to be accurate too. And Anderson is accurate as he sneaks this past the inside edge, hits the pad and then the top of the stumps. Would have got the lbw if not the bowled. Ends a superlative knock from Rohit, who has turned around India's fortunes away from home from the time he opened in Sydney. 126/1
49.6 to CA Pujara, this is a dismissal that will worry Pujara and those who observe him. He rarely gets caught at the slips because he doesn't poke or push away from the body. This is the second time he has done this today with Anderson going wide on the crease and then swinging it away. The edge is snaffled at third slip. 150/2
91.1 to AM Rahane, and Rahane digs himself a bigger hole. Anderson bowls the perfect interrogating delivery, on a length just outside off, swinging away, Rahane pokes at it, fails to cover the movement, and Root takes the catch low at first slip. 282/5
123.6 to I Sharma, given lbw but Ishant will review it. I think he has gone across and outside the line, but let's see what the replays say. This is an inswinger that has gone past the inside edge, and it is "umpire's call" on impact. India retain the review, but Ishant has to go back. 362/8
125.6 to JJ Bumrah, that's the five-for for Anderson. Too good for Bumrah, gets the swing from just short of a length, Bumrah pushes at it in defence, is squared up, and edges it through for another duck. 364/9
Ollie Robinson33107322.211607002
84.4 to V Kohli, and Kohli is gone in the dying moments of the day. Not to Anderson but to Robinson. Hard hands, defensive shot to a wide ball, and the edge is taken for Root to take it at first slip. This is a shot that won't get him any runs. Perhaps he could watch Rahul and Rohit: either drive or leave. So even if you get the edge, you give yourself a chance to clear the fielders. 267/3
90.2 to KL Rahul, lucky break second ball. Robinson still hasn't warmed up. Gentle half-volley at 124ks, and Rahul fails to keep the drive down. And England have started with a cover in place. Rahul fails to kick on, gone for 129, but gets a big applause for all the hard work yesterday. 278/4
Sam Curran2227203.27948000
Mark Wood24.129123.769810100
109.6 to RR Pant, gottim, nicked through to the keeper! Wood's pace finally brings a dividend, as Pant throws a flat-footed slash at one angled across him, just a tickle but an audible one - England have made a big breakthrough, given India's lengthy tail in this match. Looks like it scraped the toe of the bat as his swing belatedly caught up with the ball. 331/6
126.1 to RA Jadeja, Jadeja doesn't have much trust in Siraj. He goes for the big one first up, and top-edges the pull for an easy catch for Anderson at mid-on. Wood ends up with a two-for. Both the left-hand batters fall to him. 364/10
Moeen Ali1815312.94744100
110.5 to Mohammed Shami, chipped to midwicket, tame way to go! Moeen gets Shami second ball, tossed up and turning just a fraction as he attempts to swish through the leg side, ends up plopping a simple, knee-high catch to Burns. 336/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ishant Sharma2446932.871098001
90.6 to JC Buttler, Ishant on the board. Lets out a roar. Buttler will be disappointed he has not managed a big score in these good batting conditions. Tries the big drive to a length-ball insiwnger, presents it the big gate, and Ishant breaches it to hit the top of off. It is actually fuller than good length so Ishant has done well to invite the drive without giving him a half-volley. 283/5
110.5 to MM Ali, snagged by the outswinger! He's been tied down for a while, and now flirts with one that straightens to take a thick edge. Kohli took it low at slip, fingers just under the ball, and Moeen was happy to walk - they are going to check the catch, although soft signal is out. Kettleborough is happy, Ishant's probing line finally gobbles up a left-hander, and he roars in approval. 341/6
110.6 to SM Curran, gone first ball, edged to second! Fourth stump line and Curran has to play, this one doesn't do quite as much but the new batter is only just working out his angles. Hard hands and a big edge flies straight into Rohit's welcoming paws. 341/7
Jasprit Bumrah2667903.0312260013
Mohammed Shami2639523.6511312011
41.2 to RJ Burns, pinned on the pads, and given! Burns looks filthy with this decision from Richard Illingworth and reviews, but it could be tight if there's no inside edge. Hits the seam, jags in to beat the bat then raps the knee roll, was it bouncing over? No! Smashing into middle and leg, three reds! Massive breakthrough for India, greeted by Kohli with the double fist pump!. 108/3
127.6 to JM Anderson, oh man, after defending 15 balls, Anderson has a bit of a drive at a full 16th one, and he misses. Shami hits the top of off. And, now, this one is not a no-ball. Root won't have a shot at the double hundred, but he has set England up in this Test. 391/10
Mohammed Siraj3079443.1313414000
14.2 to DP Sibley, one time is accident, two times is plan. Sibley has gifted his wicket again. Can't blame India's planning, but Sibley has chipped a length ball on the pads in the air to the waiting short midwicket. It is a replay of his Trent Bridge dismissal. Plays early, doesn't care to keep it down, gets the leading edge. Three times in three innings now, Sibley has played a dozy shot after getting in. He needed to be alert to this given the field here. 23/1
14.3 to H Hameed, bowled him first ball. Siraj on a hat-trick. Hameed gets a golden duck on comeback. Hameed has missed a straight half-volley. He has just played inside the line of a full drive ball. Siraj is shushing somebody. 23/2
78.4 to JM Bairstow, round the wicket, Bairstow cramped on the pull... simple catch loops to Kohli at slip! India's bodyline approach pays off, Siraj the man once again! Kohli gives a finger wag, that's a plan coming together beautifully for the captain. Bairstow had looked unsettled by the tactic and is unable to hunker down in the face of a barrage. Pull came straight off the glove. 229/4
116.6 to OE Robinson, he finally gets it and Robinson has reviewed it. Pitches this right up, Robinson caught on the crease, the ball nips back in and beats the inside edge to hit him his pad. And the ball tacking shows umpire's call on the leg stump. Just kissing the outside of the leg stump. Very close to missing. Siraj finally has the lbw. India still in credit. This is a serious comeback after two sessions of toil. 357/8

James Anderson25.365302.071257000
Ollie Robinson1764522.64796001
85.3 to RR Pant, huge. Absolutely huge. Pant gone playing a forward-defensive. On a length, middle and off, not much nip, but Pant defends with an open face. The edge is taken. England have got the big fish. 194/7
89.3 to I Sharma, slower ball does Ishant in but he will review it anyway. Ishant shuffling across as usual, looking to keep the full one out, but this knuckle ball arrives well after his shot. Hit in front of middle, ball hitting the middle stump, Ishant is gone for a priceless 16. 209/8
Mark Wood1845132.83795100
9.2 to KL Rahul, Wood produces the wicket. The pace does it. Bowled at 150ks/93mph, short of a length, not sure it has straightened, but Rahul plays at it after having left so well in this series. It takes the edge, and Buttler takes the catch. For once, England get an India opener out early. 18/1
11.6 to RG Sharma, Wood has got both the openers out. India effectively 0 for 2. For the second time on this tour, the hook has got Rohit. It is a difficult shot to keep playing against someone of Wood's pace with three men back on the hook. The last six went from just outside off, allowing him room to swing through the shot. This one is straighter, closer to his left shoulder, and he fails to control it. Moeen takes the catch at deep square leg. This has gone off the toe end of the bat. 27/2
72.4 to CA Pujara, snorter! Wood has breathed life into the contest in an instant! Kicks up at Pujara from a length, he's starting to come forward and then has to throw his hands up, and the deflection loops gently to second slip! Wood goes off on a giddy lap of the infield, and Lord's roars in relief. Root was the catcher, helmet on and stood very close, as the ball ballooned off the top hand. 155/4
Sam Curran1834212.33834000
23.1 to V Kohli, gottim, Kohli has fiddled at one! Sam Curran, Makes Things Happen! Having struck him on the knee roll with the last ball of the previous over, he just floats this one out wide, Kohli is playing for the ball coming back and it just keeps going on the angle, grazing the outside edge! England are running around like headless chickens, and this Test may have just been blown wide open.... 55/3
Moeen Ali2618423.231065100
75.6 to AM Rahane, zoinks! Moeen snaffles an outside edge! Rahane finally makes a misjudgment against the spinner, prodding outside his eyeline, and Michael Gough's finger is raised! Walks off head bowed, just a slight wave of the bat as he reaches the pavilion. This is still in the balance. 167/5
79.1 to RA Jadeja, bowlediiiiiiiiiiiiiiim, top of off! Man like Moeen! Beautifully bowled, an offspinner's gem, Jadeja is neither back nor forward and sees the ball spin past his attempt to cover the line before hearing the fatal "clonk!" Jadeja's legs are planted stalks and he turns like a startled heron to examine the damage behind him. 175/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jasprit Bumrah1533332.20796002
0.3 to RJ Burns, India have one of the 10. Burns is gone for a duck. Bumrah is pumped up. Looks like an easy enough ball down the leg side, Burns looks to turn to leg, early into it, the leading edge lobs up, and Siraj runs in from mid-off to take the catch. 1/1
22.3 to JE Root, is it all over? Bumrah has got the big one. India are halfway there. This is a superb delivery. Wide on the crease, on the fuller side of good length, angling in towards off, and Root has to defend. It holds its line a little, and takes a healthy edge. Straight into the hands of first slip. 67/5
50.5 to OE Robinson, slower ball, Robinson is hit in front... umpire Illingworth shakes his head but Bumrah begs for a review. Did it pitch in line? Did it pitch in line? If so, this is a genius bit of bowling. It did land on leg stump, an offcutter with that same fast arm, and smashing into the back leg. Three reds on Hawk-Eye, hitting middle stump two-thirds of the way up, and India have broken the stand! Brilliantly done, the last thing Robinson was expecting and he was completely flummoxed. 120/8
Mohammed Shami1051311.30531001
1.4 to DP Sibley, what a beauty from Shami. Sibley walks. It is like facing legcutters at 140ks. Just too good. On a length, on off, holding its line against the angle, squaring him up, taking the nick. 1/2
Ravindra Jadeja63500.83320001
Mohammed Siraj10.533242.95493010
38.1 to MM Ali, Siraj gets his man. It looked like a matter of time last over. That channel of middle and leg, shaping away, Moeen defends in front of off, this time the movement is just right to take the edge, and Kohli makes no mistake at first slip this time. Four more good balls needed now. This is just such good line. He has to play at it, can't just leave it. 90/6
38.2 to SM Curran, king pair for Curran. This is exceptional bowling. Curran plays the line of off again, but Siraj gets just the right amount of movement. He is on a hat-trick here. Siraj bowls on that leg stump, you have to play at it, and then gets the movement to take the edge. Every fast bowler vindicating Kohli's selection here. Kohli is running away even before the catch is taken. He doesn't forget anything. He saw Curran run to deep pint after getting Kohli out. Now Kohli does the same to Curran. 90/7
51.2 to JC Buttler, feels for it fatefully outside off! Gone! Siraj has broken through pretty much England's last line of defence, and Kohli is wide-eyed on the Lord's outfield once again! The drop won't matter now... Instead of the in-ducker, Siraj got the ball to hold its line and Buttler couldn't prevent himself from following it. 120/9
51.5 to JM Anderson, pegs back off stump! India have sealed the deal with room to spare! Siraj goes bang-bang for the final time in a Test full of dramatic doubles... Perfect line from round the wicket, and he streaks through to pluck out a stump for himself! Kohli is doing a victory dance, along with the rest of his team. From staving off defeat in the morning, they've knocked England over inside 52 overs for a 151-run win! Extraordinary. 120/10
Ishant Sharma1031321.30500000
15.3 to H Hameed, in-ducker and Hameed is plumb! Gough's finger goes up straight away, but Hameed is quick to review, did he get some bat on it? No! Trapped on the crease as the ball swerved back at him, rapped just above the knee roll - and clipping leg stump, umpire's call! Ishant strikes, another brick knocked out of the wall. 44/3
21.6 to JM Bairstow, beats him on the inside, struck on the back leg... Gough shakes his head! Kohli chats with his bowler, fielders and reviews, looks like height probably the biggest issue if he hasn't hit it. Well, he hasn't hit it, and Hawk-Eye has the ball splatting middle! Gough's decision is overturned - a reason to stop and stare in itself - and England lose their fourth with the last ball before tea!. 67/4
