In years gone by the loss of a day would have almost guaranteed a draw.
Probably still over by Monday.

They have at least recalled pujara so kohli may have someone to play with.

Kohli didn't want to play with him clearly.

With three down and possibly more play today England are well on top already. Just need the weather to be kind

Not this one mate. Even if the weather holds there's only three days left which means Monday could be a cracker

If India are shot out for 70 odd it's more than possible.

England need a 300 plus but the declaration will be way too late

Don't think they need that many to be honest.
India just can't bat in these conditions.

It is utterly pathetic. Kohli and Rahane look like the only two who have the slightest clue in swinging conditions.

Its no surprise.
There is little or no lateral movement on the sub continent.
It's not like the ball has been boomeranging around, they've just made it look like it.
Fancy England to go for the throat tomorrow.
Game is set up for them
Hope to see pope bat tomorrow.
