England resumed the day at 311-9, with James Anderson and Adil Rashid at the crease. The four wickets came in splits of two wickets each with openers Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings continuing to be in poor form.

With India requiring a single wicket to wrap up the win, the fifth day's play could conceivably last one delivery.

Among India bowlers, only Kapil Dev has dismissed an opponent more often: he got Pakistan's Mudassar Nazar 12 times.

India crushed England by 203 runs in the second Test at Trent Bridge on Wednesday. England, it could be said, lost the match in the first innings itself, when Pandya's maiden five-wicket haul shut them out for 161.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan says Arsenal are on right path under Unai Emery
Chelsea are joint top after their opening two Premier League fixtures against Huddersfield and Arsenal . He said: "I know he [Emery] is trying to play out from the back".

"The players are really proud of what they've done in this Test too". Beneath him are Trevor Bailey (21.04), Barry Wood (21.61), Dick Barlow (22.93), and Mike Brearley (23.02).

Jos Buttler's century (106 runs) and Ben Stokes' knock of 62 runs were the only positive takeaways for Joe Root's men on Tuesday, with the captain himself being dismissed for an unlucky 13 runs. It is also England's highest ever fifth-wicket stand in the fourth innings and the second-highest for any wicket in the fourth innings at Trent Bridge. There have been two centuries this year before Buttler's but both were at No. 7 - Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes.

They suffered another top-order slump in a second innings where they had to make cricket history to pull off an improbable win - no side have made more in the fourth innings to win a Test than the West Indies´ 418 for seven against Australia at St John´s, Antigua in 2003. South Africa's Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers put on 205 against India at Johannesburg in 2013, while New Zealand's Bev Congdon and Vic Pollard scored 177 at Trent Bridge in 1973.
