England have finally declared on 205/4. They have set India a target of 445. That's Tea on day 4.
Eng scored 125 runs from just 19.4 overs in that session. India need a solid start from the openers.
Right! The Indian openers - Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan are out in the middle. James Anderson will start off proceedings for England.
Dropped! A tough chance. Vijay drives it uppishly straight back, Anderson gets his fingertips to it.
Broad will share the new ball.
Dhawan gets off the mark in style. Drives it through covers for a boundary. But then Broad comes back strong and beats him with an outswinger. Good contest building up!
A good probing over from Broad.
Dhawan has come out with a positive mindset.
Dhawan has tried to be too aggressive in this series and that has brought about his downfall on most occasions. He should try to stick around, play his natural game rather than playing ultra aggressively.
Broad gets one to snake off the surface but Vijay does well to defend it into the ground taking one hand off the bat.
Dhawan ahs been pretty patient so far.......
Big appeal for an LBW against Dhawan! Not out! Length delivery outside off, nips back in. Vijay shoulders his arms to it, the ball jags back in sharply to flicks his pads on its way to the keeper. They go uin a big appeal but the umpire remains unmoved. Good decision.....It would have missed off.
