September 02, 2018  15:28
England were reeling at 86/6 in the first innings of the fourth Test, but ended with 246 -- an addition of 160 runs.

In the second innings, England were 122/5, effectively only 95 runs ahead.

Had India run through the tail, the visitors would have been chasing a rather easy fourth innings target on the way to level the series.

This was not to be as the England lower order batted stoutly against the Indian attack.

By the end of the third day, the lead had increased to 233.

Not for the first time has the England tail wagged in the series.

In fact, this been the trend right through the series. So much so that out of 7 innings England have played in this series, their bottom half has outscored the top-half in 4!
