14:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live match updates of day 4 of the 4th test between India and England.
The game is expected to end on Sunday if the weather permits. This was Buttler's ninth test, fifty, and he showed many applications, although he suffered from the first enchantment of Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami. He survived a good spell of Shami's reverse swing and was ready to cut down on the shots of the wicket. He only played the episodes on the length to be driven because his 122-ball innings had seven limits. In fact, England was in trouble at 122 for 5 when Joe Root was eliminated for 48. The lead was less than 100 points but it was Buttler, who took the attack back to the opposition camp as Ravichandran Ashwin (35-7-78) -1) despite being economical, it was not half as effective as Moeen Ali. The off-spinner of Tamil Nadu could not use the footsteps of the trio of Mohammed Shami (3/53), Ishant Sharma (2/36) and Jasprit Bumrah (1/51 in 19 overs).
His only success was Stokes, who showed his defensive qualities in this series with a bit of stubborn resistance. He was finally caught in the slings of Ajinkya Rahane after a score that lasted 22 overs. However, Buttler continued to defy the Indian bowling players in the company of Curran because they also consumed almost 17 surpluses. In the end it was the second new ball to carry out the battle while Ishant put a corner kick into Buttler to catch him earlier. Curran, however, hit in a positive way and hit Bumrah for a few limits. Previously, India held the upper hand during the first two sessions on Saturday. A well placed carrot was back in the pavilion for 48 after Mohammed Shami's direct throw had found him for tea. After removing Keaton Jennings (36) at lunch, Mohammed Shami (2/40) was on a hat-trick when he shot Jonny Bairstow (0) from the very first post-break. However, Stokes and Root negotiated the Indian bowling pit for the next 14 overs before the skipper had not properly sharpened his club while he sprinted to the end of the striker.
Shami took a sharp and precise spell and did not give the batsmen anything. It could be seen in how England added only 60 runs in the session, never exceeded the scoring percentage, mainly because they were forced to rebuild the innings. The crucial moment came in the 46th when Shami picked up Root with a direct throw from center on. After that, Buttler and Stokes retired in an attempt to bring England back into the game. Against the tea, they had added 30 runs for the sixth wicket, with the score coming only in sprint. Ravichandran Ashwin (0-46) dared a long period in this second session and although he was wicketless, he kept it tight, admitting with only 2.2 per.
