IND vs ENG Test LIVE Score: Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow put England in complete control.© AFP
England are firmly in control of the rescheduled fifth Test being played at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Classy unbeaten knocks from Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow on Day 4 left the hosts needing just 119 more runs to win on the final day with seven wickets still in the bag. India will be hoping that Day 5 brings around a change in fortunes. India are not completely out of the game and some early wickets on Day 5 could cause some panic among the English batters. On Day 4, England were set a target of 378 to win the fifth Test. India were dismissed for 245 in their second innings shortly after lunch on the fourth day. England were 259-3 at stumps. Former captain Root was 76 not out and Bairstow 72 not out after making 106 — his third hundred in as many Tests — in England’s first-innings 284. The Yorkshire duo had added an unbroken 150 in 22 overs on Monday after coming together at 109-3, with England having lost three wickets in quick succession either side of tea. (LIVE SCORECARD)
