England vs India, second Test, day four

After England captain Joe Root had declared his team's first innings closed at 396 for seven, Vijay pushed forward to a full delivery in Anderson's second over and was caught behind off a thin inside edge by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow. We're going to have to start again and work extremely hard over the next five days to win the next game.

Spin great and former captain, Bishen Singh Bedi ripped apart the management and even picked on the BCCI for not identifying the root cause and then dealing with it.

Questions still remain over England's top order - they were struggling at 89-4 on Saturday - but Woakes' all-round performance is a promising sign for the hosts. Yesterday belonged to Chris Woakes, who scored a maiden Test match century to put England in command of this match.

Resuming on 357-6, England surprisingly chose to bat on despite extending their lead past 150 on day three when Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow shared a partnership of 189. Credit has to go to England.

After starring with the bat, Chris Woakes took his chance with the ball.

He said: "We haven't been able to have partnerships, which is the basic rule while batting. I should be okay", he said.

However, it was the same old story for the Indian batters in seaming wickets.

Anderson became the first England bowler to reach 500 Test wickets previous year against West Indies and is now closing in on Glenn McGrath's haul (563) to become the most prolific pace bowler of all time.

James Anderson took 4-23 to finish with nine wickets in the match and Stuart Broad shone with 4-44 as India were bowled out for 130.

Vijay's fellow opener KL Rahul fell for 10 when lbw to Anderson.

Number three Cheteshwar Pujara, who did not play in the first Test, battled for the best part of 24 overs before his resistance was finally breached by a beauty from Broad that nipped back and bowled him through the gate.
