first_img# Four! Jadeja is proving his worth. IND 288/9 in 90.4 overs.# Four! He will now go after every ball. He knows only this way he can stretch the Indian innings and narrow England’s lead.# SIX! Jadeja stretches his muscles a bit. Anderson bowls a full ball in line of the stump and swings in away. Jadeja counters for that and goes with the straight bat over the bowlers head.# Score after 87 overs: India 268/9# FOUR! Jadeja has decided to accelerate his innings. He chops from his crease and a thick outside edge makes it race through the slip cordon for a boundary.# OUT! And as Sidhu says, “Kharbuje ko dekhke Kharbuja rang badalta hai”. Rashid removes Shami. In the entire series, England’s tail has been the trouble for India, but Indian lower order could not perform the way Englishmen did.

This is where England players outperformed Indians else the result of the series would have been different.# FOUR! Jadeja stands tall and half pulls it to mid-wicket. His intention is now clear. Take it as far as he can.# OUT! Ali strikes again post lunch. Ishant Sharma departed for 4. And it looks it’s not too far as India has lost 8 wickets.# Lunch break!
