Rahane had to walk after making 51 leaving India staring at a series defeat. Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma departed after not doing too much to the scorecard. Ashwin and Bumrah put up a brief final wicket stand before the former was dismissed by Sam Curran and India have lost the fourth match by 60 runs.

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

GONE! Ashwin 25 LBW b Curran, England win by 60 runs, clinch series 3-1. Ashwin was dropped by Anderson just before that but the final wicket act between Ashwin and Bumrah has come to an end.

Well guess what, Bumrah and Ashwin are still around. They have put up 12 runs for the last wicket. Ashwin had a near escape when the ball landed just in front of Root scrambling from midwicket after bouncing off his willow.

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

GONE! Mohammed Shami 8 c Anderson b Ali: Shami has been waving his bat around for some time now, this time he is caught at long-on. Fourth wicket of the innings for Moeen Ali. 

21:14 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

GONE! Ishant Sharma 0 LBW b Stokes: England 2 wickets away now. India have gone from 123/3 to 154/8 in the space of 12 overs.

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

OUT! Ajinkya Rahane 51 LBW b Moeen Ali: And there goes a final shred of logical hope that India had of staying in this series. This one pitches outside off and takes a sharp turn inwards. Rahane takes a review and the replays show that the ball is hitting leg and middle. India need a downright miracle to even suruvive this day, let alone save the match. 

20:58 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

GONE! Rishabh Pant 18 c Cook b Ali: There goes the counterattacking cameo. Pant hits Ali straight over his head for a four and the next ball, he is caught at gully. It was a good show while it lasted. Ashwin comes in now and England certainly can smell it. 

20:50 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

50 for Rahane. That is the 14th Test fifty for the Indian vice-captain. Pant takes a run off the next ball and India's deficit is now down to two digits. They need 99 to win with five wickets in hand. 

20:45 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

Rishabh Pant faced some ridicule for being dismissed for a duck despite facing 2 deliveries in the first innings but he faces no such dangers this time. Hits a four to get off the mark, comes back on strike and hits Moeen Ali for a six. India are now 142/5. 

20:36 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

OUT! Pandya 0 c Root b Stokes, India 127/5: No luck for Pandya. Vicious delivery from Stokes that kicks up and catches Pandya by surprise, Root has to dive to his right from second slip to make the catch. Soft signal was out and the ball had well and truly carried. 

20:34 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

Third session starts with Stokes bowling and there is an appeal for caught at slips against Pandya off the third ball he faces. Umpires go upstairs to see if it carried or not

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live: TEA on Day 4

India need 119 runs to win with 6 wickets in hand. Rivetting. There is no other word to describe this session. Kohli and Rahane rebuilt the innings from the rubble of a top-three collapse. They survived a number of LBWs and played and missed a few more but kept the scoreboard ticking. This session would have been India's completely had it not been for the wicket of Kohli at the fag end of that session. India still have the target in sight. They have a set Rahane in the middle with Pandya and there is Ashwin and Pant yet to come but England have their tails up now. The coming session is going to be crucial in the context of this match and this series.

GONE! Virat Kohli 58 c Cook b Ali, India 123/4: And there goes the biggie! He lobs this one to short leg and Cook makes no mistake with the catch. Kohli reviews but the ball has very clearly brushed the glove before flicking off the pad. Kohli has to walk. A stout innings in which he faced 130 balls and scored 58 runs. But England will have their tails up now. Hardik Pandya replaces his captain.

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

Half century for Virat Kohli. He is breaking records left right and centre right now. He has crossed 500 runs in this series, becoming just the third Indian batsman to do so in England after Rahul Dravid and Sunil Gavaskar. This is the third time he has scored over 500 runs in a series as captain. That is only behind the four times that Sir Don Bradman and Brian Lara have managed and tied with Sir Gary Sobers. Not bad company to be in.

Kohli and Rahane are still going strong and their partnership is now at 73. India's deficit meanwhile has now gone below the 150-run mark.

Anderson has come in to replace Rashid. It looks like Root might be giving the pacers a go now, considering Kohli and Rahane have squeezed runs from the spinners.

India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live: Kohli crosses 500 runs in the series

Kohli survives an LBW scare against Moeen Ali. The ball, as it turned out, was hitting his leg outside off and England lose a review. He then moves to 22 runs and crosses 500 runs in this series. He now equals Garry Sobers for most instances 500+ scores in a series as captain - 3. 

18:25 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live:

Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane, the delivery straightens up and moves straight through the bat and body and to the keeper. England appeal but the umpire isnt interested. England don't review and replays show that there could have been no glove on it. Rahane ends that over with a glance that went down to the boundary. 

17:37 (IST)02 Sep 2018
India vs England 4th Test Day 4 Live: LUNCH

Ajinkya Rahane reviews successfully after he was given out LBW. India 46/3 at Lunch, need 199 runs to win.

India vs England Live Cricket Score: England seized the initiative in the fourth Test against India after reaching 260-8 by the end of a gripping and fluctuating third day at Southampton, for a lead of 233 runs on Saturday. Jos Buttler's battling knock of 69 and telling contributions from Joe Root (48) and Sam Curran (37 not out) left England as favorite for a victory that would clinch the five-match series. England leads 2-1. In a Test that has swayed this way and that, the Indians took the wicket of Adil Rashid (11) on the last ball of the day and were still in with a good chance if they can quickly wrap up England's second innings on Sunday. Only tailenders Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson were left to bat for England, which will be happy to see the pitch starting to play a few tricks with reverse-swing in the equation thanks to a worn late-season square. India is facing by far its highest chase to win a Test match in England, and keep the series alive. (AP)
