Broad propels England to victory over India

Cricket | Steve James August 11 2018 12:01am The Times India self-destruct as Cheteshwar Pujara’s run-out nightmare continues Steve James

An inspired spell from Stuart Broad, during which he took four wickets in seven overs for just seven runs, put England on the brink of victory. England had earlier declared on 396-7 - with Woakes 137 not out, his first test century - during the opening session of the fourth day.

Joe Root won the toss on day 2 and with the kind of environment around the decision to bowl first nearly sealed the game in England's favour. With this, England took a very healthy lead of 2-0 in the 5-match Test series making it much hard for the visitors to stage a comeback.

Kohli remains the heartbeat of India's batting line-up and having survived a review the delivery before, with England convinced the visitors captain had gloved the ball behind to Jonny Bairstow, he was not so lucky the next ball. Chris Woakes, the Man of the Match said:Delighted. A comic run out and almost three and a half hours of rain delay later, once again it fell to Virat Kohli to man the trenches against England's all out swing assault - once again his duel with Anderson demanded your attention.

Resuming on 357-6, England surprisingly made a decision to bat on despite extending their lead past 150 on day three when Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow shared a partnership of 189.

Stokes and Sam Curran - the player preferred to Woakes for the first test at Edgbaston - both impressed as England won with a day to spare despite Thursday being completely washed out.

Anderson was now just 12 shy of the 563 Test wickets taken by Glenn McGrath. Another in-swinger did for Lokesh Rahul (10), striking him on the pad for a clear leg before wicket and India was 17-2 at lunch, hoping for prolonged rain.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores on Juventus debut, but his side falls 3-2
During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano. The Portuguese forward signed from Real Madrid this summer for a fee of around €100m after spending nine years in Spain.

India captain Virat Kohli was disappointed with his side's efforts: "I am not very proud of the way we played - it's the first time in the last five Tests that we have been outplayed". He was given out caught behind when the ball brushed his glove and Karthik was lbw to the next ball.

Tailender Ravichandran Ashwin again top-scored for India with an unbeaten 33.

"Even when the ball is doing a bit you have to pitch it in the right areas and the guys were relentless with the ball, " Kohli said.

"It's not about batting on flat surfaces, I enjoyed playing on surfaces that were given to us, more so when it was an attacking field", he said.

Inbetween Shami's strikes, Ishant Sharma had Alastair Cook (21) caught behind and Hardik Pandya (2-66) removed England debutant Ollie Pope for 28 to help bring India back into the match.
