Second Session 


England batsman Ollie Pope smashed an unbeaten 74 to bring the hosts right back into the fourth Test against India at the Kennington Oval on Friday.
With the opening session seeing the Indian bowlers slowly clawing back into the game, it was important for the hosts to rebuild the innings. While the Indian bowlers scalped a couple in the second session, the duo of Pope (74*) and Moeen Ali (35) brought the hosts back into the session.
At Tea, England’s score read 227/7 — leading by 36 runs with three wickets in the bag. Pope mixed caution with aggression as Mohammed Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja took the wicket of Bairstow and Moeen Ali respectively to keep the visitors in the game.

Siraj gave the much-needed breakthrough to the Indian team in the second session as he trapped the dangerous-looking Bairstow for LBW. He bowled full and straight to the English batsman as he completely missed the ball which was smashing into the leg. Jonny went to the pavilion after scoring a gritty 37.
Moeen Ali and Pope then started rebuilding the innings for the hosts. With both English batsmen going strong, Jadeja did the trick as he slowed the ball down to get a bit of drift as Moeen then went for the big shot down the ground but didn’t time it to hand his wicket to Rohit at the cover.
India were buoyed by that late wicket of Moeen as things were just starting to slip but visitors will now feel, with a new ball only 10 overs away, that they can get rid of the last three wickets and get batting again in the third session.
Off the action, Daniel Jarvis — also known as Jarvo 69 — invaded the pitch again on the second day of the ongoing fourth Test. The incident took place during the 34th over of the England innings which was being bowled by Umesh Yadav and the match had to be halted for five minutes.

  • And that’s Tea! England lead by 36 runs
  • Wicket! Ravindra Jadeja strikes takes the big wicket of Moeen Ali

  • Umesh Yadav replace Shardul Thakur
  • England are now trailing by just 5 runs
  • Shardul Thakur bowls another maiden over against Ali now
  • Jasprit Bumrah bowls a maiden over against Pope
  • Drinks Break
  • Brilliant fielding by Umesh Yadav on the boundary line, dives to save a four
  • England are now just 13 runs behind India, another partnership between these two and few cameos from the lower order can help England get a big first-innings lead
  • And finally, Jasprit Bumrah is back into the attack
  • Shardul Thakur to replace Siraj
  • Fifty! Fighting fifty by Ollie Pope, studded with six boundaries
  • And another maiden, this time for Jadeja

  • Mohammed Siraj starts the session for India

Ind vs Eng LIVE Score

First Session 

England batsmen Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow put on 77 to bat the hosts right back into the fourth Test against India at the Kennington Oval on Friday. With the opening day seeing the Indian bowlers slowly clawing back into the game, it was important for the hosts to have a good start to the opening session of the second day. While the Indian bowlers started well, the duo of Pope (38*) and Bairstow (34*) brought the hosts back into the session.


At lunch, England’s score read 139/5 — trailing by 52 runs with five wickets in the bag. Both the batsmen mixed caution with aggression as Umesh Yadav clearly looked the most impressive of the Indian bowlers as he picked the wickets of Dawid Malan (31) and Craig Overton (1) to keep the visitors in the game.

While the morning didn’t start that well for the Englishmen, it was Pope and Bairstow who put their head down and ensured that the hosts didn’t lose any further wickets. Umesh though kept bowling a testing line and was on the money on most occasions. In fact, Jasprit Bumrah too bowled well and was unfortunate to miss the edge of the bat on a number of instances. While Bumrah failed to add to his two wickets in the morning session, Umesh added two to the one prized wicket of Joe Root that he had picked on the opening evening.

Off the action, Daniel Jarvis — also known as Jarvo 69 — invaded the pitch again on the second day of the ongoing fourth Test. The incident took place during the 34th over of the England innings which was being bowled by Umesh Yadav and the match had to be halted for five minutes.

Earlier, English county Yorkshire had confirmed that pitch invader Jarvo 69 has been banned for life from entering the stadium. Jarvo 69 had invaded the pitch again on the third day of the third Test between India and England. The incident happened after India opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed.

Brief Scores: India 191; England 139/5 (Pope 38*; Umesh 3/49)

Ind vs Eng LIVE Score – India bundled out for 191, Shardul Thakur & Virat Kohli hits 50’s for India


Shardul Thakur scored 2nd ever fastest half-century for India as Virat Kohli’s team were bundled out for just 191. Thakur scored 57 but it was Chris Woakes who hogged all the limelight with a four-wicket haul on his comeback.

Ollie Robinson took three wickets while James Anderson and Craig Overton returned with one wicket each.

Resuming the third and final session at 122/6, India lost the wicket of Rishabh Pant (9) pretty early on as the left-handed batsman went for a big shot off the bowling of Chris Woakes, but he only managed to hand a simple catch to Moeen Ali.

Shardul Thakur then joined hands with Umesh Yadav and the former played a counter-attacking inning and England was left searching for answers. Shardul brought up his half-century off just 31 balls in the 60th over and all of a sudden, India gained an upper hand.

Shardul’s (57) knock finally came to an end in the 61st over as he was sent back to the pavilion by Woakes and the eighth wicket partnership of 63 runs came to an end. In the end, the visitors were bowled out for 191.

Sent into bat, the Indian openers — Rohit and Rahul — mixed caution with aggression and the duo saw out the opening spells of James Anderson and Ollie Robinson. However, the introduction of Chris Woakes paid off straight away as he dismissed Rohit (11), ending the 28-run opening stand.



Pujara next joined Rahul in the middle and the duo found the going tough and they did not score a single run for almost five overs, and this eventually brought about a wicket, as Rahul (17) was trapped in front by Ollie Robinson, reducing India to 28/2.

Pujara (4) also failed to leave a mark with the bat as he chased a wide delivery and his wicket was grabbed by James Anderson, reducing India to 39/3 in the 20th over. In the end, Kohli and Jadeja ensured that India went into the lunch break without losing any further wicket.

Resuming the second session at 54/3, Kohli and Jadeja added 15 more runs before Jadeja (10) was sent back to the pavilion by Chris Woakes. Jadeja poked at a delivery bowled outside off and he handed a simple catch to skipper Joe Root at first slip, reducing India to 69/4. Ajinkya Rahane then joined Kohli in the middle and the duo started reviving the innings for India. The Indian skipper brought up his half-century in the 40th over and he was looking set for a big one. However, as soon as he brought the landmark, Kohli (50) was sent back to the pavilion by Ollie Robinson.


Right before the tea break, Craig Overton removed Rahane (14), and India was reduced to 117/6 before tea interval.
