England bounced back in style in the fourth test to eye a series win in Southampton. Joe Root (48) was the lone survivor but the English team was 122/5 after the dismissal of Root and in die need of a partnership to take the game away from the Indian team.

Their controversial all-rounder Ben Stokes(30) and Jos Buttler69) formed a crucial 56 runs partnership to rescue England from a tricky situation. After the departure of Stokes, England were 178 for the loss of 6 wickets and the fourth highest run getter of the series Sam Curran arrived to the crease.

Buttler and Curran stitched a 55 runs partnership to take the game slightly away from India and take the lead to over 200. In came Adil Rashid after the departure of Jos Buttler and he troubled the Indian pacers with some fierce strokeplay that forced Indian captain Virat Kohli to make bowling changes.

Rashid added 27 runs with Curran before getting dismissed that also ended the days play. England are currenly 260/8 with a lead of 233 runs.

The task will be cut out for the Indian batters when they chase down this score in the fourth innings. However, twitterverse was scared that Indian team have conceded much runs and will end up losing the test match.
