India has dominated the first two days and have enforced the follow on. Following on 300 odd runs behind India, England have made a combative start to their reply. They have a unbeaten century opening partnership. This could mean some real hard work for Indian bowlers tomorrow. On the other hand, England would need to continue to build on this great start if they want to get something out of the game. Do you think India can wrap it up tomorrow? Or do you think England will take the battle to another day? Cheers! Ram

I think it will be a very difficult task to end the match tomorrow though it's not impossible hope Indian spiners took some wkts in the morning and restrict England before 219 runs...

Yes, a slight error. But, I think editing isn't possible here. Pujara was 98 on 1st day and 203 on 2nd day. England batted throughout the 3rd day. On 4th day Indian spinners can do something since England team may be nervous too.

Oops!! Day 4 has been typed as Day 3. Thanks Raja and Mohkanari for pointing it out. Unfortunately as Mohkanari pointed out I cannot change the title. Cheers! Ram

I think that chances are 50-50. England batsmen always are having weak points against Indian spinners especially on Indian pitches. Spinners can bring more damages on 4th day than 3rd day. On the other hand England middle order batsmen and tail enters have records of withsdanding and can lengthen the match to 5th day.

England have fought really hard in the second innings. As of now they are 306-5. It looks more and more certain that India will need to bat again to win this match. So it has been a fantastic fight back from England. Cheers! Ram

Why not , however,I THINK it may take another day to finish. No surprise IF India wins and IF INDIA GOES England, England wins and if ENGLAND COMES to India ,India wins. Where the talent wins???

I think it is not a question of talent. It is a question of talent for the conditions. For e.g. Indian batsmen struggle against swing. English batsmen struggle against spin. Cheers! Ram
