Thank you and goodbye

So, England are 2-0 down. India have not lost their last 17 Tests at home. And Hameed's going home to get his hand sorted. It's fair to say it's not going to plan.

Can they turn it around in Mumbai? We'll be back next Thursday to guide you through it. In a bit!

'Fingers crossed' that Broad is fit

England coach Trevor Bayliss on Hameed's replacement for the fourth Test: "We've got to get together as selectors. We'll be discussing that over the next 24 hours."

On Stuart Broad's chances of being for for Mumbai: "Fingers crossed. Nothing is for certain. We'll look at that a little bit more closely nearer the match."

Perhaps England should replace Ramprakash and Thorpe with Hameed's dad.

'We gifted India wickets'

England coach Trevor Bayliss on Sky Sports: "The toss went our way but that doesn't guarantee success. You have to bat well and we didn't bat well. I thought we gifted them a few wickets and we didn't make them work hard enough.

"I thought this was the easiest wicket to bat on. The first two had good bounce and spin. We thought the wicket would spin a lot more than it did. If anything, it got a lot more placid."

Can England avoid a 4-0 series defeat?

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

Mentally it's going to be a challenge. When you're 2-0 down and you can only draw, it's always a challenge.

The one thing in their advantage - the one thing they can grab at - is they're playing the fourth Test in Mumbai. The last two times they've been there, England have won the Test.

But Virat Kohli is trying to build something with India. They've given England a real hammering here. Virat will be in that dressing room saying, 'we're playing OK, but there's still improvement'.

'Hameed wanted to play in the last two Tests'

England coach Trevor Bayliss speaking about Haseeb Hameed: "He keeps amazing everyone who's working with him. It was a fantastic effort. It's another plus in his corner. Not only can he play but he's tough little character too. It was a gutsy effort.

"He wasn't showing too much pain. The medical staff probably knew it was cracked - they didn't want to distract him.

"He wanted to bat. He wants to stay here and play in the last two Test matches. He wants to tape it up and play."

Hameed showed 'huge amount of courage'

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

He showed a huge amount of courage. He'll be around the England side next summer. I would think as soon as he's fit and raring to go, he'll be in the team. Nick Gubbins and Keaton Jennings - those two would be the most likely to come in.

'We weren't going to tell India it was a broken hand'

England captain Alastair Cook on Haseeb Hameed's injury: "It's terrible luck on the young kid. It's devastating for him. He'll come back again. To change his grip so he doesn't use that part of his hand shows how good he is."

On how England handled news of his injury: "I wouldn't have changed anything. It was handled absolutely fine. It's a broken hand - we knew pretty much straightaway. We weren't going to tell India it was a broken hand.

"We knew it was sore; he knew it was sore. He wanted to bat - he's desperate. You can't hold guys like that back."

'One step forward, two back'

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

Sometimes it looks like England have taken a step forward - and sometimes a giant step - but then they take two back.

Alastair Cook is England's leading run-scorer in Test history. Joe Root could be the greatest player England have ever had. Jonny Bairstow has the most runs and the most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year. Ben Stokes is the best all-rounder since Andrew Flintoff.

But England aren't producing good enough performances. I expect more consistency from this side. It frustrates me that we get performances like this.

Robert Allen: It was always going to be a tough series. Hameed, Rashid, Stokes and Bairstow have all performed very well.

'We weren't good enough'

England captain Alastair Cook on Sky Sports: "We weren't good enough with the bat. You don't win many games of cricket here when you don't get 400. We fought back and if we had bowled them out for 300, then you never know."

On the poor strokes in the first innings: "You live and die by a certain way you want to play. I'd rather Moeen and Jos play that way because that's their best way of playing."

'The seamers have been standing out'

Virat Kohli on his seam bowlers, who took seven wickets between them in the match: "The seamers have been standing out every game and they have rushed their batsmen, pushing them on the back foot, intimidating them. That's really pleasing to see as a captain.

"It's been a complete effort. We're in a good space. We'll keep things simple and enjoy this little break we've got now."

'England need to look in the mirror'

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

I don't think England have read the conditions well this week. They possibly thought 300-325 would be a competitive score. They need a message to go to the dressing room to say 'this is flat, we need plenty'.

They need to look in the mirror and ask: 'Why? Why does it keep happening?' There is something not right in the mentality in the dressing room.

'Cheer after losing the toss motivated us'

India captain Virat Kohli: "None of the pitches have been turners - we are just playing very good cricket. Getting them out for 280 was a great boost for us having lost the toss.

"I was surprised by the cheer after the toss because you've still got to play, and that motivated us actually."

'India outplayed us'

England captain Alastair Cook: "To get bowled out for 280 in the first innings, we knew we were behind the eight ball. We had a little bit of a sniff at 200-6, but credit to their lower order.

"It's been a frustrating four days. Credit to India - they outplayed us. We've got a few days off to go our separate ways."

Jadeja named man of the match

Ravindra Jadeja, who made 90 and took 2-62, is the man of the match.

"I'm very pleased with my performance with the bat. I was taking my time and I knew with time I could make good runs. I was looking to play as long as I can," he said.

"I was thinking about if I want to take a chance I can take it against the spinners. It's a very good wicket for batting.

"I was looking to bowl in the right areas and not give them easy boundaries."

Hameed out of tour

England captain Alastair Cook confirms that Haseeb Hameed will return home to have a plate put in his hand.

He faced 156 balls, lasted 170 minutes at the crease, scored his second Test half-century and now he will return home for an operation. A remarkable effort from the teenager.

'The belief was tremendous'

India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, who made 72 in India's first innings and took 3-81 in the England second innings, says: "We were in a bit of bother on the second day but the belief in the dressing was tremendous. We always back the lower order.

"I thought we got the wickets through pressure, we were bowling very well in pairs."

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

This was a week where the gulf in class of these two teams, on these style of pitches, was evident. I thought England played a little bit too aggressively. When they realised it was a good batting surface, they should have realised they need to bat long. Six or seven of the dismissals on day one was down to poor thinking.

Rakesh Pradhan: England's obsession of pushing white ball players to the test team is the cause of their malaise in India.

The thought that no individual has got a hundred on this surface is very bizarre. The bowling has been good on both sides.

'Chasing 100 suits my game'

India's Parthiv Patel, who made 42 and 67 not out in his first Test for eight years: "I was very nervous before the Test match started - I played it in my mind five or six times.

"I'm glad we won the Test. When you're chasing 100 it suits my game. The wicket was pretty flat and I was just trying to back myself."

On Ravichandran Ashwin, who claimed three key wickets on the third evening: "He was brilliant; he was varying his pace. There wasn't much help from the wicket so to deceive them in the flight was brilliant."

There are positives for England. Haseeb Hameed was a genuine pleasure to watch, a really mature knock carried out by a 19-year-old with an injured finger.  Adil Rashid carried on his good form, taking 4-118 and 1-28, but England will rue their first innings. They won the toss and then squandered it.

So many positives for England in this tough series. Our best bowlers (check series stats) have been on a par with theirs in their backyard, Root, Bairstow, Hameed and Stokes great with bat. We bossed the first Test, lost one session in the second, then squandered the toss in this. Don't forget that India are extremely competent at home! But IF England can regroup with this welcome break and put together a team performance they can win Tests here.

'The pitch was perfect for batting'

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

England were just not good enough on the first day, that's where it was lost. The pitch was perfect for batting. You've got to bat for 140 overs and score 400. 283 was about 150-175 below par.

Parthiv Patel, playing in his first Test for eight years, finishes on 67 not out. It's been a brilliant all-round effort from India. Another superb innings from Kohli, the bowlers helping India out with the bat, before Ashwin took 3-81 and Mohammed Shami's outstanding spell of fast bowling brought an end to England's second innings.

There can be no excuses about the toss. They won it here and they messed it up. And I'm afraid if you want to look at what went wrong in this Test match, you just rewind to lunch on the first day and look at the score. 

BreakingIndia win by eight wickets

There it is! Parthiv Patel hits Gareth Batty through cover, away to the boundary. A well deserved eight wicket win for India. Handshakes all ronud between the two batsmen and the England fielders, as Parthiv nabs a stump out of the ground. They take a 2-0 series lead.

Kohli 6, Parthiv 63

Four more for Parthiv, who has put in a fine performance throughout the Test. Rashid tosses it up and it's so easy for Parthiv to dance down the pitch and thump the ball over mid-wicket. These two are running as quickly as they can, turning a one into a two. Just three more needed.
