09:25 IST: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the fourth day’s play from the 2nd Test between India and England.
The pitch at the ACA-VDCA Stadium is getting slower and lower with the variable bounce causing more than a few problems. With batting getting harder as time passes, India’s first innings lead of 200 runs could prove to be the difference on this match. Ravichandran Ashwin took five wickets as England were bowled out for 255. India lost openers — Murali Vijay and KL Rahul — early again while Cheteshwar Pujara failed to carry on from the first innings falling prey to James Anderson. Captain Kohli struck another fifty and along with Ajinkya Rahane added 58 runs for the fourth wicket to put India in total control at stumps on Day 3.
