With England being 2-1 up an England win will seal the series, looking mostly dry for the 5 days.

I said before the first test that this would be an interesting series nad nothing has changed.
A lot will depend no our batting and whether or not our lads will get their heads down and escape from the T20 mentality which seems to pervade. Jos Buttler showed that it can be done after he was dropped on 1 in the last test and there has to be more of this attitude.

England have won the toss and decided to bat, Kohli would have batted also.

Jennings gone lbw from a brilliant delivery from Bumrah for 0, England 1 for 1

Absolutely nothing he could do about it at all.
Root just had a lucky escape, he would have been out lbw but it was a no ball --mind you, the umpire had turned it down and it was reviewed!

England faced 4 overs and scored 6 without loss, Cook 2 (13) Jennings 4 (11)

Could be a close game if England don't mess up their innings.

I don't think its a T20 mentality, more one day! I've been able to watch a lot of the tests and I feel we rush shots when batting. we don't think about it more like we will risk it and see what happens. big call for Root to take himself out of 3rd today but bad choice putting Ali.

Tricky wicket, if we can get near to 300 we can win this! :s

Interesting match again. We have managed to bat for a whole day which does make a change. We scored 254 for 8 in 87 overs so it wasn't exhilirating stuff but is what was needed. It is a shame that we lost wickets on both side of the lunch break and then another in the final over.
Anything can happen from here but it would be good to see Broad and Curran make a stand like they did in the first innings ---a stand of 63 would put us in a decent position ---we shall see!

We'll be lucky to hang on in this match unless we can bat out towards a draw... or maybe our bowlers will step up to the mark and either win us the match, or make it a so called 'draw'.
