The first Test of the 5-Test series is being played between India and England. Play on the fifth day has not started till 7:50 pm as per Indian timing due to rain. The umpires declared lunch time ahead of time. The rain had stopped at 6:30 in the evening but once again it has started drizzling.
India need to score 157 more runs to win the match and have 9 wickets left. Run-wise, this target does not look difficult, but the Indian batsmen will face the challenge of England’s best bowling line-up on Day 5.
