Until tomorrow

Right, we're off. Thanks for joining us - get back here tomorrow at 03:45 BST to see if England can engineer a draw.

Optimistic, yes, but stranger things have happened. See you then.

'We've definitely got a chance'

England's Stuart Broad: "We’ve still got lots to work with. The openers played superbly well. They were calm and collected. We need to discuss the plan for tomorrow and hopefully we can save the game. There wasn’t a huge amount going on with the pitch. It’s not doing anything horrific so we’ve definitely got a chance tomorrow."

'We controlled the day massively'

More from England's Stuart Broad: "It’s a bit of a shame to end the day like that but if you offered us to be two down at the end of today we’d have definitely taken it.

"It was a fantastic day for us. After yesterday there was talk that India were going to control the game completely, but we’ve controlled the day massively. We made India slow down with the bat and we’re now thinking we can potentially get this total."

Geoffrey Boycott

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

Full marks today - England bowled superbly. With their experience, accuracy, pace - they can create pressure on all the Indian batsmen except Kohli.

Michael Burke: Absolutely loving this Test match. What a massive wicket at the end for India.

'I feel like I'm stepping on a plug'

England bowler Stuart Broad on his injury: "The problem is with my tendon in between the first and second toe. It feels like I’m constantly stepping on a plug every time I plant my foot. It’s extremely painful to play on.

"I need to find out a bit more detail on the injury before I can think about the next Test. It will be a case of resting it as much as possible and letting the bleeding go down. Hopefully in the next couple of days I can get my feet up and rest - and not be needed to bat."

Holding out for a draw against the odds is even more rewarding than winning sometimes... especially when there are tailenders involved. Hope it doesn't get to that here, though.

Stephen, Cambridge

England bowler Stuart Broad, who took 4-33, on Sky Sports: "What we did well today was broke it down into really small bits. If we can get to lunch quite quietly tomorrow, then the pressure goes on the bowlers. If we were in their position we'd be expecting to win the game."

Somebody else has got to stand up for England and play beautifully tomorrow.

India will most likely win this test, but that's been a pretty decent day for England with both bat & ball. Excellent fight & character.

Geoffrey Boycott

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

It shows passion, emotion, he really cares about winning. It shows that he cares - and I have no problem with that as long as he doesn't say anything to the batsmen or the umpires.

Jonathan Agnew

BBC Test Match Special

Kohli is all over the place. He's moving his field all the time, he's throwing the ball on the ground, he's challenging the umpires.

So Duckett will join Root at the crease tomorrow, and both batsmen will have to follow their captain's lead. India's heads went down awfully quickly when England were blocking their way through the evening session. And, of course, India will be without any reviews for another 20 overs.

How's stat?!

Andrew Samson

BBC Test Match Special statistician

The 317 runs scored on the first day is the most scored in a day in this Test.

England have been competitive today, despite the difficulty ahead of them. Rashid has grown in confidence as a bowler, finishing with 4-82, while a one-footed Broad did the initial damage to India this morning. However the last wicket partnership between Shami and Jayant frustrated England, and helped India creep over the 400 mark.

Geoffrey Boycott

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

Hameed got a mullygrubber - somebody was going to get one. He played nicely - the right technique, the right footwork.. his temperament, his concentration, his technique was good. There's no criticism of Alastair Cook. He's played nicely - there's nothing you can do.

What an evening session. Attrition from Cook and Hameed, not playing anything they didn't have to, just sticking in and watching the heads of the India fielders droop. Neither batsman looked fazed by the fielders around the bat. But then Hameed fell to a shooter from Ashwin and Cook's dismissal, in the last over of the day, has lifted India ahead of tomorrow.  

Geoffrey Boycott

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

From India's point of view, that's huge. They were beginning to feel deflated. Now they've gone in feeling uplifted.

Simon Mann

BBC Test Match Special commentator

England have shown some resolve and those to follow have had the example set for them.

Close of play - Eng 87-2

Target 405

And that's your lot for the day. Root follows Cook off the field; Cook keeps his head down while Kohli gathers his team together and delivers an emphatic pep talk. That late wicket will give them a late boost.

WICKET

Cook lbw Jadeja 54 (Eng 87-2)

Ravindra Jadeja, the master of timing. There's nothing on snicko, Cook's been smacked well in front of the stumps, and that's out. The England captain has to leave. Gone in the final over of the day. He looks, understandably, gutted.

That looks pretty good to me.

This is a big moment in the day, a big moment in the game.

England review

Oh! Has Jadeja got Cook in the last over? He's given out lbw but Cook reckons he's hit that - upstairs we go.

Rory Pyrke: People wonder why the younger generation prefer T20- shouldn't be too hard to figure out why when looking at this game.

Sandra Passmore: Some of us oldies love this type of cricket. Don't worry about the young fans. They will get it in the fullness of time.    

Eng 87-1

Cook 54, Root 5

Kohli's last throw of the dice for the day is to bring Umesh Yadav on. Is that a hint of reverse? Root clips nicely into midwicket but Ashwin full on sprawls to cut off a boundary, but then Umesh hurries him up and Root topples over trying to keep that one from sneaking through. Final over coming up.

Got to feel for Hameed. Run out in the first innings and then gets that!

Tom

The records will read "just 25 runs" from Hameed but that was an excellent knock. Whisper it quietly but can we perhaps finally remove that faded dog-eared "England opener vacancy" advertisement from the job centre window?

Richard in Sheffield

Eng 86-1

Don't go back to those, Joseph. Everyone pleads with Dharmasena as Root moves deep onto his stumps to Jadeja, but it looks like it's sliding down. Oh, and the replay shows a big ol' inside edge. Probably just as well India have lost their reviews. Kohli wouldn't have been a happy bunny if he'd reviewed that and seen an edge.

Eng 85-1

Target 405

I love that stat about Cook's 50. Give me a blockathon any day of the week. Kohli is chirping away, trying his best to disrupt his opposite number. Cook blocks everything Ashwin sends him back down the pitch. Totally in the zone. 

Geoffrey Boycott

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

Thank you Andrew, but it doesn't matter one iota.

How's stat?!

Andrew Samson

BBC Test Match Special statistician

Alastair Cook's fifty came off 172 balls, his slowest in Tests.

50 for Cook

Eng 84-1

Cook turns the ball away and jogs a single to bring up his 50. He's got concentration written all over his face. He raises his bat towards the crowd but there's more work to be done here. That's his 53rd Test half-century. If you wanted someone to block a day out, Cook's the one you'd be asking for.

Eng 81-1

Cook 49, Root 4

I'd love to know what Cook is saying to himself here. Ashwin is getting that ball to stay so low. It's constantly into Cook's bat, then onto his pad, and the fielders are happy to yell for anything. Ashwin looks more dangerous when he drags his line back a tad. Five overs left.

Hameed 24 off 144 balls

3 fours, 2 twos, 9 singles

Here's Hameed's wagon wheel, what little there is of it. Of the 144 balls he faced, 130 were dot balls. He's got a seriously impressive temperament.

Target 405

Cook inside edges onto his pad, the ball balloons up, and it races away through a gap in the field. Jadeja tries to give Root the hurry up as he gets into position, which brings a chirp from short leg that Root can't resist responding to. There's an extra bit of enthusiasm in the yelling when Jadeja hits Root on the pad, but that was going down leg.

This is where India really need to make it count. They want two wickets tonight. This is huge psychologically to get one of these players out.
