    IND vs ENG Live: Lunch!

    Axar survives a solid over from Rehan Ahmed and it’s Lunch time. So, 101 runs and four wickets. England take the session but India lead by 273 runs. Gill unbeaten on 60.

  • 11:30 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Gill solid!

    I think this will be the last over before Lunch! A good session for England but Gill keeps India ticking. Still some batting to come for the hosts with Bharat and Ashwin.

  • 11:00 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: 50 up for Gill!

    IND: 111/2

  • 10:56 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Swept away for four!

    Goes down and and gets four to deep backward square leg! Moves into the 40s with that boundary. This is excellent batting from Gill. A real confidence booster for the youngster

    IND: 102/2

  • 10:53 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Gill-Iyer solid!

    Gill and Iyer have looked at their absolute best so far! This will be a relief for both of them. However, the job is not done yet. Need a big partnership here.

    IND: 96/2

  • 10:45 (IST)

  • 10:43 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Root off the ground!

    Joe Root is off the field right now! He had earlier copped a ball on his finger. The ball fell short off him in the slip and hit his finger. Seemed to be in some pain

    IND: 82/2 (22)

  • 10:33 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Iyer finds the gap!

    Shubman Gill has provided Team India with some momentum as he smashed two consecutive boundaries off Tom Hartley. The spinner concedes nine runs in this over. With this, Team India’s lead has gone past the 200-run mark. Terrific partnership between Gill and Shreyas Iyer. 

    IND 66/2 (18 overs)

  • 10:18 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: India need some magic!

    Anderson done after a four-over spell for six runs and two wickets. Shoaib Bashir is into the attack. This partnership remains key for India. These two have to bat long, not just for the team, but for themselves too.

    IND: 42/2 

  • 10:09 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Nervy moments for India!

    Gill and Iyer are being very cautious. No rush to score runs. Batting in these conditions hasn’t been easy with the ball twisting and turning

    IND: 39/2

  • 10:01 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Gill gets lucky!

    Gill survives again! This time it was given not out by the umpire. On a length, outside off, nips back in, beats the edge clearly. England take the DRS and the umpire call saves Gill

    IND: 35/2

  • 09:54 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Gill survives!

    Gill and India breathe a sigh of relief! On a length, Gill defends in front of the body, playing for the turn, but this goes straight on after pitching. Given out. Replays show there was a spike before contact with the pad. PHEW!!!

    IND: 34/2

  • 09:50 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: That’s a ripper from Anderson!

    Rohit is gone! What a ball from Anderson! The ball nips away just enough to beat the outside edge and knocks back the off pole

    IND: 29/1
