  1. Farewell

    Are we set up for something like England's two-run win over Australia in the 2005 Ashes at Edgbaston?

    Join us from 10:30 BST tomorrow to find out.

    For now, Amy Lofthouse's report of a thrilling day three is here.

    The scorecard is here.

    And head here to download the Test Match Special podcast.

    I'll leave you with Sam Curran's ridiculous six to reach his fifty.

    We are in for a riveting morning. We keep saying Virat Kohli can't keep seeing his team over the line in run chases but in the last two hours of day three we saw he has the mindset and the game to do so. England have got to strike early.

    But Virat Kohli - who else? - remains.

    India are perhaps favourites as long as the captain remains at the crease.

    England thought they might have got him, but this lbw shout by Sam Curran was just sneaking over...

    The skipper won't sleep tonight. He has got to trust his bowlers and stay calm. He has to hope his side take their chances. England will create a chance or two and have to be good enough to take them.

    That set India 194 to win - beyond the mark of their previous highest successful run chases in Tests in England, but still very doable, not least with Virat Kohli.

    Sam Curran is having a wonderful Test match. He has great skill levels. He defended, particularly against Ashwin. He trusted his defence, got in and then started to flourish. It is exactly what is required on this pitch.

    Enter Sam Curran.

    So with the top order gone, what could England's powerful middle order of Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler do?

    Er, not much. In fact, they all fell in the same Ishant Sharma over.

    Bairstow was the first to go, backing to leg and fending at an inswinger to be caught at slip...

    Joe Root will be disappointed with his dismissal. He was the key for England. He flicked with a leg slip there. That was a mental error.

    It was that familiar sinking feeling when England resumed their second innings this morning.

    Keaton Jennings was the first to fall, pushing out in front of his body to a very good Ravichandran Ashwin delivery that turned and flicked the edge...

    England just threw their hands at the ball. When they have a session where it is required to play old school and leave a few, they feel the best way to overcome it is to attack. That creates opportunities.

    England were out of it before Sam Curran's innings.

  19. Post update

    Right, stay tuned for highlights and reaction from a superb day three at Edgbaston...

  20. Post update

    I'll be honest, I thought England had rather spoiled a brilliant Test match with a woeful batting collapse today as they fell to 87-7.

    Sam Curran had other ideas, hitting a superb 63 in just his second Test, to give England more than a fighting chance.

    Stuart Broad then got on a roll with two early wickets, with Curran, Ben Stokes and James Anderson all adding one each.

    But Virat Kohli has showed his class once more, steadying the chase. Tomorrow is going to be an absolute belter.
