India vs England Live Cricket Score 4th Test, IND vs ENG: Team India enjoyed a near-perfect day, bowling out England for a mere 145 after Dhruv Jurel (90) produced a fighting knock to narrow India's deficit on Day 3. Following this, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal provided a strong and aggressive start, guiding India to 40/0 by Stumps on Day 3 in pursuit of the 192-run target. The side displayed great character and bowling prowess to dismiss England for 145 runs in the second innings; it was evident that defending against the fairly new ball was not a viable option, as it posed a constant threat. Kuldeep Yadav turned the tide with his impressive bowling, claiming four wickets in quick succession to dash England's hopes of setting a formidable target. Foakes was left to fend off the Indian bowlers with the tailenders, while Ashwin wrapped up the innings efficiently as he picked a fifer....Read More

Earlier, Ashwin had jolted England with twin strikes in the 2nd session after Dhruv Jurel staged an impressive fightback for India in MS Dhoni’s den on Sunday. Breaking Anil Kumble’s record, Ashwin picked up his 350th Test wicket to become the highest wicket-taker in India. The spinner is also the first Indian to take 100-plus wickets against England and Australia in Tests.

With Rohit Sharma's Team India on the back foot, wicketkeeper-batter Jurel steered the ship of the hosts through choppy waters with his brilliant 90-run knock on Day 3 of the 4th Test at JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. Kuldeep (17 off 72 balls) and Jurel (30 off 58 deliveries) resumed the Indian innings on the opening session of the Ranchi Test. Spinner Shoaib Bashir picked up his first-ever five-wicket haul to rattle India as the hosts posted 307 in 103.2 overs before Lunch. In-form Yashasvi Jaiswal (73) and Jurel's career-best score trimmed England's lead to 46 runs in the first session.

Jurel and Kuldeep held fort through the final hour of play yesterday, as India had reached 219/7 at Stumps. India faced early setbacks in the third and final session of Day 2 as Jaiswal, who had been the most promising of all batters in the innings, fell to Shoaib Bashir as the spinner castled him on 73. Sarfaraz, too, followed suit a few overs later, as he could only score 14 off 53 balls. Tom Hartley dismissed the young batter and followed it up with another wicket in the 56th over, dismissing Ravichandran Ashwin for 1.

India lost Rohit Sharma early but Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill looked almost untroubled either side of Lunch. The pair put up 82 runs for the second wicket with Gill upping the ante after Lunch. Shoaib Bashir broke the stand by sending Gill back on 38. Bashir then went on to dismiss Ravindra Jadeja and soon got the wicket of Jaiswal himself to complete his maiden Test four-wicket haul.

Joe Root and Ollie Robinson dominated the first half an hour with India looking rather deflated in that period. The eighth-wicket stand between Root and Robinson reached 102 runs in 163 balls, with the latter scoring 58 off 96. Jadeja finally got the breakthrough for India in the form of Robinson's wicket, after he which he got one more wicket in the same over. James Anderson fell soon thereafter and Ravindra Jadeja finished with four wickets. Root was unbeaten on 122 off 274 and England were all out for 353.

Akash Deep enjoyed a memorable debut by dismantling England's top order in the first session on Day 1, giving India an early upper hand. The spin duo of Ashwin and Jadeja struck in quick succession before Lunch, further bolstering India's dominance. England found themselves in trouble at 112/5, but Root and Foakes steadied the ship with a resilient partnership after Lunch, marking the first session in this series without losing a wicket. Their partnership exceeded 100 runs, and although they accelerated after tea, Siraj's fiery spell saw the dismissal of Foakes and Hartley, swinging the momentum back towards India.

Mohammed Siraj struck the breakthrough in the final session of Day 1, as he dismissed Ben Foakes on 47 to end a gritty 113-run stand for the sixth wicket. Root and Foakes kept the aggressive ‘Bazball’ style of batting in the backburner and their resistance seemed to have frustrated India with a lot of frowning faces towards the end of that session and Rohit Sharma burning their last remaining review for an LBW decision against Foakes.

Earlier, pacer Akash Deep has made a dream debut to his Test career, taking three wickets in his first six overs and leaving England reeling after they won the toss and chose to bat. England eventually lost half their batting lineup in the first session with Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin taking a wicket each before Lunch.

Akash Deep replaced the rested Jasprit Bumrah and has been almost unplayable in the early part of the first session. He knocked Zak Crawley over in his second over but it turned out that he had overstepped, thus giving the batter a lifeline. He then took the wickets of Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope shortly thereafter and then smashed Crawley's off stump. This time, it was a legitimate delivery and Crawley had to walk. England captain Ben Stokes earlier said that spinner Rehan, who has been their highest wicket-taker thus far in this series, has gone back home for personal reasons and will not return for the rest of the series.

Ranchi plays host for the decisive fourth Test between India and England. India currently lead the five-match series 2-1 and a win here for the hosts would mark the end of England's quest to prevent Rohit Sharma's side from winning yet another Test series at home. On the other hand if England do manage to win it, the series goes back to level-pegging at 2-2 and sets up an exciting finale in Dharamsala.

Smarting from their record defeat by 434 runs in Rajkot, England have brought in seamer Robinson and spinner Shoaib Bashir, replacing Mark Wood and Rehan Ahmed. The shellacking also prompted questions about England's ultra-aggressive approach, which many feel borders on recklessness. England captain Ben Stokes, who is tipped to resume bowling in this match following knee surgery last November, has brushed aside the backlash. The look of the pitch in Ranchi was a greater concern for the 32-year-old as he plots ways to keep England alive in the series.

Here are some key takeaways from India vs England 4th Test:

India vs England Live Score 4th Test Day 3, IND vs ENG: Former England seamer Stuart Broad feels India should have roped in Cheteshwar Pujara for the ongoing Test series against England. India are missing the services of Virat Kohli, who is not available for selection due to personal reasons.

Feels like he could have brought some consistency and an anchor," Broad posted on X. Do you agree with former England pacer Broad?
