After 117 overs, England is 415 for 9, with Root on 108 and Anderson on 51.
The run-rate this session has been 5.3. India have only bowled 11 overs so far though. Dhoni fallilng behind the over-rate as usual. He could well end up banned for a match during this series. Wouldn't that be interesting?
Time for Sir RJ. Will this Test continue to follow the same pattern?
Manjrekar saying he would have bowled Jadeja first up this morning and set an in-out field.
It was the seamers who took the wickets yesterday though, so can't fault Dhoni for wanting to stick with what was working.
FOUR! The reverse-sweep beats everyone. Anderson moves to 55. England to 420. They could well take a first-innings lead at this rate.
Shami still trying to bounce Anderson.
The pitch is slow enough to reduce the threat though. Full and fast would seem to be to be the option.
FOUR! Anderson gives himself room and slashes Shami over point. All too easy for England now.
Anderson takes a single to move to 60. This is now the highest score made by an England No. 11 in history. How teams must lick their lips at the thought of facing India's bowling.
Did Anderson get a glove on that? Doesn't matter because Dhoni makes an almighty hash of the take, pushing it from one glove into the other and then on to the turf.
It might have been shirt though, not glove. And indeed it was shirt.
RJ beats Anderson with one that turns between bat and pad. Problem is it beats Dhoni too and England gets four byes.
England trail by just 24 now. Manjrekar says it is time to set a normal field and hope for the best.
Shami continues forlornly. Wither Stuart Binny?
Jadeja not finding much purchase from this pitch.
Root steals a single off the fifth ball of Jadeja's over.
Anderson goes for a wild reverse-sweep. He misses everything. The ball ends up in slip's hands. India go up in appeal. The umpire tells everyone to calm down.
After 122 overs, England is 434 for 9, with Root on 114 and Anderson on 60.
Hawk-eye, however, suggests that might have been out lbw. Everyone missed that one.
Ishant bowls a perfect outswinger. Draws Root forward and gets the ball to leave him on the drive. Unfortunately for India, it is too good for Root to nick it.
Sometimes Dhoni's tactics are head-scratching. And since he rarely, if ever, explains himself, we have no idea why he does what he does and can only speculate.
How will Dhoni get this final English wicket? It looks like he doesn't have a clue at the moment.
FOUR! Anderson laconically sweeps Jadeja to the square leg boundary. That was top class shot.
England just 17 shy of India's total now.
Anderson is on 64 now. And his strike-rate is 79. This has been a remarkable innings.
Manjrekar wants someone to whisper Stuart Binny's name to Dhoni.
Dhoni did this to Stuart on his ODI debut too. Bowled him for just one over in that game. Gave Ambati Rayudu, who doesn't bowl in first-class cricket, more overs.
He can be inscrutable and odd, can MS.
Meanwhile Ishant beats Root again by somehow getting the ball to move off this pitch. He has produced some top deliveries has Ishant.
Root manages a single to third man off the fifth ball.
Still short to Anderson. Still easily played. England 443 for 9, just 15 runs shy of an improbably first-innings lead.
Only India can lose this Test match from here. Given the nature of the pitch though, a draw is the favourite result.
