Get involved

  1. Until tomorrow

    Right, we're off. Thanks for joining us - get back here tomorrow at 03:45 BST to see if England can engineer a draw.

    Optimistic, yes, but stranger things have happened. See you then.

  2. 'We've definitely got a chance'

    England's Stuart Broad: "We’ve still got lots to work with. The openers played superbly well. They were calm and collected. We need to discuss the plan for tomorrow and hopefully we can save the game. There wasn’t a huge amount going on with the pitch. It’s not doing anything horrific so we’ve definitely got a chance tomorrow."

  3. 'We controlled the day massively'

    More from England's Stuart Broad: "It’s a bit of a shame to end the day like that but if you offered us to be two down at the end of today we’d have definitely taken it.

    "It was a fantastic day for us. After yesterday there was talk that India were going to control the game completely, but we’ve controlled the day massively. We made India slow down with the bat and we’re now thinking we can potentially get this total."

    Full marks today - England bowled superbly. With their experience, accuracy, pace - they can create pressure on all the Indian batsmen except Kohli.

    Michael Burke: Absolutely loving this Test match. What a massive wicket at the end for India.

  6. 'I feel like I'm stepping on a plug'

    England bowler Stuart Broad on his injury: "The problem is with my tendon in between the first and second toe. It feels like I’m constantly stepping on a plug every time I plant my foot. It’s extremely painful to play on.

    "I need to find out a bit more detail on the injury before I can think about the next Test. It will be a case of resting it as much as possible and letting the bleeding go down. Hopefully in the next couple of days I can get my feet up and rest - and not be needed to bat."

    SMS Message: Holding out for a draw against the odds is even more rewarding than winning sometimes... especially when there are tailenders involved. Hope it doesn't get to that here, though. from Stephen, Cambridge

    England bowler Stuart Broad, who took 4-33, on Sky Sports: "What we did well today was broke it down into really small bits. If we can get to lunch quite quietly tomorrow, then the pressure goes on the bowlers. If we were in their position we'd be expecting to win the game."

    Somebody else has got to stand up for England and play beautifully tomorrow.

    It shows passion, emotion, he really cares about winning. It shows that he cares - and I have no problem with that as long as he doesn't say anything to the batsmen or the umpires.

    Kohli is all over the place. He's moving his field all the time, he's throwing the ball on the ground, he's challenging the umpires.

  13. Post update

    So Duckett will join Root at the crease tomorrow, and both batsmen will have to follow their captain's lead. India's heads went down awfully quickly when England were blocking their way through the evening session. And, of course, India will be without any reviews for another 20 overs.

  14. How's stat?!

    Andrew Samson

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    The 317 runs scored on the first day is the most scored in a day in this Test.

  15. Post update

    England have been competitive today, despite the difficulty ahead of them. Rashid has grown in confidence as a bowler, finishing with 4-82, while a one-footed Broad did the initial damage to India this morning. However the last wicket partnership between Shami and Jayant frustrated England, and helped India creep over the 400 mark.

    Hameed got a mullygrubber - somebody was going to get one. He played nicely - the right technique, the right footwork.. his temperament, his concentration, his technique was good. There's no criticism of Alastair Cook. He's played nicely - there's nothing you can do.

  17. Post update

    What an evening session. Attrition from Cook and Hameed, not playing anything they didn't have to, just sticking in and watching the heads of the India fielders droop. Neither batsman looked fazed by the fielders around the bat. But then Hameed fell to a shooter from Ashwin and Cook's dismissal, in the last over of the day, has lifted India ahead of tomorrow.

    From India's point of view, that's huge. They were beginning to feel deflated. Now they've gone in feeling uplifted.

    England have shown some resolve and those to follow have had the example set for them.
