Commentary (England innings)

The last five wickets fell in the space of 31 runs and India have done well to not let the English tail wag. They trail by 86 runs and firstly, would need a good, solid partnership up front. The seniors are under the hammer to perform now. Join us back in a while.

Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook put up 206 runs for the third wicket, and with the former on song, it looked like England could pile up a lead of over 150. Pietersen played an outstanding knock, being under huge pressure and it was one of the most scintillating ones in recent times by a foreign player on Indian soil.

Tea will also be taken early.

121.3 R Ashwin to Panesar, OUT! England are all out for 413! India have done well in this last session to come back. Tossed up on middle, once again Panesar attempts the sweep, gets it right but picks out Zaheer Khan at deep mid-wicket. 413/10

Deep mid-wicket in place.

121.2 R Ashwin to Panesar, FOUR! Monty's taken him on. A tossed up delivery on middle, Panesar sits and sweeps it well over mid-wicket for a boundary. 413/9

Monty Panesar is the last man in now. Tea would be expected to be postponed, in case the pair lasts that much.

120.6 Singh to Anderson, OUT! Trapped in front! That's the second for Harbhajan. Slower through the air and turns away, Anderson is caught on the back foot but is rapped on the back pad. The finger goes up after a long, long time and Anderson walks back. 408/9

120.5 H Singh to Anderson, Well tossed up and spinning away, Anderson attempts to sweep but misses out. 408/8

119.3 R Ashwin to Prior, OUT! Prior is run-out now and that is a huge, huge wicket! Firstly, it was an LBW decision. Flighted and turns in around off, Prior steps forward to defend, the ball spins and strikes him on the pads. They appeal big time and in the meanwhile, the ball lobs towards cover in spite of Ashwin's prolonged appeal. Prior calls for the single, is sent back mid-way. Dhoni rushes out of his blocks and throws it to Kohli at the striker's end who is quick. Third umpire confirms Prior's dive went in vain. 406/7

Well, this is interesting. INDIA HAVE GOT A LUCKY WICKET HERE. Replays show that the ball did hit the grill of Gambhir at silly point. According to the law, that should have been not out. It seemed as if the umpires asked Dhoni whether he would like to withdraw the appeal and recall Bairstow but Dhoni has refused. Hard luck for Bairstow, bad sportsmanship from Dhoni.

Day 3, session 2...

The bowling was not at its best and Pietersen and Cook capitalized. If England have a good second session, they could end up getting a lead of around 70-80. On the other hand, if India manage a wicket or two early after Lunch, they could very well run through the middle order. Join us back at 0640 GMT (1210 IST) to see how the second session pans out...

So, what would have been a difficult morning now becomes slightly better with Ojha removing Bairstow towards the end. But a terrific session for England nevertheless, scoring 120 runs for the loss of Cook and Bairstow. One positive for them is that Pietersen is still there and that could give England a bit of hope to get a sizeable lead.

94.3 P Ojha to Bairstow, OUT! That is a sharp catch by Gautam Gambhir! Flighted outside off, Bairstow lunges hard at it but only gets a thick leading edge. It flies quickly to Gambhir at silly point who fumbles but manages to hold on to it on to his chest. Bairstow departs for 9, ENGLAND 298/4, trail by 29! LUNCH HAS BEEN TAKEN AS WELL. 298/4

94.2 P Ojha to Bairstow, Landed outside off, 85.3 kph, Bairstow pushes and misses. 298/3

It was a day which belonged to England post which, one sees them in a string position as of now. The Cook-Pietersen stand definitely made the Indians go on the defensive. But the Brits certainly have a long, long way to go still, trailing by 149 runs. It is the World Test day today, with 4 series going on simultaneously - Australia-South Africa, Bangladesh-West Indies, India-England and Sri Lanka-New Zealand. Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the second Test at once what was previously known as Bombay!

Day 3, session 1...

That's it from us then! Tomorrow holds another exciting prospect in store and do join us for all the action at 0400 GMT (0930 IST) as Day 3 unravels. Until then, on behalf of all the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

On the other hand, if the Brits manage to see off the first session without much damage, they could actually be in with a shout of a decent first-innings lead. Cook is on course for his second successive century in Tests while Pietersen is looking good too. The bowling was good but the spinners were getting tired towards the end.

Cook and Pietersen then took advantage of the fielding placements and comfortably rotated the strike. England have brought the deficit down to 149 and this game is now a bit open. Should India strike early tomorrow and get a few wickets, pressure will be back on England.

A fabulous session for England. 101 runs scored in the 29 overs bowled and importantly, no wicket lost. Pietersen took the bull by the horns and took the attack to the opposition and the field was spread back.

Sehwag is on the ground and the batsmen take a couple. 178/2

Rahane is in immense pain here. Looks like he has been hit on the arm. The physio has come out.

54.4 H Singh to Pietersen, Oh no... not again! Rahane in trouble here. Full outside off, 87.6 kph, Pietersen sweeps this powerfully but straight into the body of substitute Ajinkya Rahane at short leg. The fielder immediately goes down on being hit. 153/2

DRINKS BREAK. A fine hour for England. Not a wicket lost and 65 runs scored in the 16 overs bowled. Just 10 overs remaining for the day but with an hour to go, we will have more than 10 overs. Pietersen is making his presence felt while Cook has always been there and scoring runs at his own pace.

The players have walked out to the middle and it will be Harbhajan Singh to start off proceedings. Pietersen to face. All set! Here we go!

Right. Some exciting moments towards the end of the second session. England were looking comfortable but in the space of 3 overs, two letters - 'un' have been prefixed to it. 26 overs left in the day. Big question - Can England see off the session without losing a wicket? Bigger question - Will India rip through the middle and lower order in this session?

DAY 2, SESSION 3...

Harsha Bhogle tweets, "will not be short of action after tea as kp comes out. very interested in seeing how a class player adapts. how will he play ojha?"

India will walk away with the honours in that session. With the openers going berserk, it seemed as if even the spinners would not be effective but Harbhajan Singh's introduction caused some doubts in the batsmen's minds and eventually led to the wickets as Ojha profited. Just 51 more to avoid the follow-on but England might need to do a lot of hard work to try and battle it out in the last session. Cook continues to be their best batsman. Join us back at 0900 GMT (1430 IST) for the final session...

35.5 Ojha to Cook, LBW appeal, turned down. Smart batting by Cook, lunges out and thrusts his bat behind the pad, getting hit on the pad outside off. Arguably, that could have been thought off as not offering a shot but umpires rarely give those. 77/2

In comes Kevin Pietersen at number 4, to replace Trott.

33.6 P Ojha to Trott, OUT! LBW! That was as plumb as one could get. The arm ball, 88.1 kph, drifting in, Trott goes back to work it away but misses and is hit flush in front. Umpire Dar was convinced that the ball was pitched in line and did not hesitate in raising his finger. Trott's poor form continues as he departs for a 6-ball duck, ENGLAND 68/2, trail by 259! 68/2

33.5 P Ojha to Trott, Big turn! Landed outside off, 84.9 kph, turning away, Trott lunges out to defend but is beaten by the big spin. 68/1

Tosses this one up to the batsman, 88.1 kph, outside off, Compton lunges forward to defend but the ball spins away and takes the outside edge. The ball goes low to Virender Sehwag at first slip who takes a good low catch. Ojha thanks the heavens above. Compton looks long and hard at the wicket, he would be feeling distraught, but that is the way the game goes. You cannot do much on such deliveries.

Pujara is going off the field. The good thing is that he can move his right arm. Might put an ice-pack on it in the dressing room. Ajinkya Rahane is the substitute for Pujara.

The physio is out in the middle and looks like Pujara is not going to get up in a hurry.

27.1 R Ashwin to Cook, OUCH! That would have hurt. Full on middle and leg, Cook plays a full-blooded sweep shot which goes right into the ribs of Cheteshwar Pujara at short leg. He immediately goes down in pain. 59/0

Commentary (India innings)

The last five wickets fell in the space of 31 runs and India have done well to not let the English tail wag. They trail by 86 runs and firstly, would need a good, solid partnership up front. The seniors are under the hammer to perform now. Join us back in a while.

Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook put up 206 runs for the third wicket, and with the former on song, it looked like England could pile up a lead of over 150. Pietersen played an outstanding knock, being under huge pressure and it was one of the most scintillating ones in recent times by a foreign player on Indian soil.

Tea will also be taken early.

121.3 R Ashwin to Panesar, OUT! England are all out for 413! India have done well in this last session to come back. Tossed up on middle, once again Panesar attempts the sweep, gets it right but picks out Zaheer Khan at deep mid-wicket. 413/10

Deep mid-wicket in place.

121.2 R Ashwin to Panesar, FOUR! Monty's taken him on. A tossed up delivery on middle, Panesar sits and sweeps it well over mid-wicket for a boundary. 413/9

121.1 R Ashwin to Swann, Quick and straight, Swann almost gets a leading edge on the off side for one. 409/9

The players are out in the middle! Gambhir and Sehwag are the openers. James Anderson to start off proceedings. Gambhir to face. All set! Here we go!

As mentioned by the captains, India have one change, bringing in Harbhajan Singh for the unfit Yadav while England bring in Bairstow and Panesar for Bell and Bresnan. Bell has gone home for the birth of his child.

Alastair Cook says that for the first couple of days, there will be something for the fast bowlers. Hopes that his team can get some purchase. Feels that towards the end of the first game, they got some positives. Ian Bell is at home, so Johnny Bairstow gets a chance. The Brits have brought in Monty Panesar as they feel that the pitch will turn and he comes in for Bresnan.

Dhoni says that the first hour will be crucial as there will be something for the fast bowlers. The surface looks good, it has a bit of grass. But as the game progresses, the spinners will come into play. Also, because of the red soil, there will be plenty of turn. Informs that Umesh Yadav is not fit, so Harbhajan comes in. Feels that games like the previous one make you feel how hard you have to work to win a Test match in your kitty. So last match was a good one. On Virender Sehwag who plays his 100th Test today, he says that he is a special player. Adds that not to forget, he is a middle order player who took up the challenge of opening.

TOSS - Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni spins the coin and his counterpart Alastair Cook has called incorrectly. INDIA WILL BAT.

PITCH REPORT - Ravi Shastri licks his lips as he makes the pitch report. He says that it is a spinner's delight. There is a bit of grass on the surface but should not make much of a difference, he feels. Reckons that the track will turn from Day 1. Sunil Gavaskar advises the batsmen to make the most of the batting conditions on Day 1 as he feels that on Day 4, everyone will be sitting at home!

WEATHER - It is a bright and sunny morning and should stay the same throughout the game.

After the Ahmedabad game, we now move to what was previously known as Bombay as England face a daunting task as they have their backs against the wall. A win over here will mean that India cannot lose the series and they will be gunning for a 2-0 lead. Whatever be the case, we hope that a good game is on offer. Sit back and enjoy!

Monty Panesar is the last man in now. Tea would be expected to be postponed, in case the pair lasts that much.

They appeal big time and in the meanwhile, the ball lobs towards cover in spite of Ashwin's prolonged appeal. Prior calls for the single, is sent back mid-way.

A good morning session for England, taking the last 4 wickets for 61 runs. But India would not mind it too much either. 327 is a good score on this track which looks to be crumbling by the minute.

115.1 G Swann to Z Khan, OUT! Caught at short leg! Well, Zaheer looks a bit miffed at that decision and shakes his head as he walks away. And he is not incorrect. Flighted outside off, spinning in a long way, 82.7 kph, Zaheer prods at it but misses as the ball goes off the pads to Jonathan Bairstow at short leg.

Well, this is interesting. INDIA HAVE GOT A LUCKY WICKET HERE. Replays show that the ball did hit the grill of Gambhir at silly point. According to the law, that should have been not out. It seemed as if the umpires asked Dhoni whether he would like to withdraw the appeal and recall Bairstow but Dhoni has refused. Hard luck for Bairstow, bad sportsmanship from Dhoni.

Day 3, session 2...

The bowling was not at its best and Pietersen and Cook capitalized. If England have a good second session, they could end up getting a lead of around 70-80. On the other hand, if India manage a wicket or two early after Lunch, they could very well run through the middle order. Join us back at 0640 GMT (1210 IST) to see how the second session pans out...

So, what would have been a difficult morning now becomes slightly better with Ojha removing Bairstow towards the end. But a terrific session for England nevertheless, scoring 120 runs for the loss of Cook and Bairstow. One positive for them is that Pietersen is still there and that could give England a bit of hope to get a sizeable lead.

94.3 P Ojha to Bairstow, OUT! That is a sharp catch by Gautam Gambhir! Flighted outside off, Bairstow lunges hard at it but only gets a thick leading edge.

The ball rolls towards point and the batsmen take a single. Anderson is pretty much convinced that it is going on to hit the stumps but umpire Dar has signalled it as runs.

Monty Panesar to begin proceedings for the day.

England will believe though, that if they manage to restrict India under 300, they might have a bit of a chance. But then, they need to break this stand first and then, there is Harbhajan Singh to come as well, who would be feeling like a wounded tiger at the moment.

Hello and a warm welcome to the second day's play of the second Test between India and England at Mumbai! It was yet another Pujara show as he struck his second consecutive ton. Ashwin has given him good support too.

That is it from us then! England will need to dismiss India quickly tomorrow, preferably under 300, else the game might go away from them completely. Join us back at 0400 GMT (0930 IST) for all the action on Day 2. Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

Dhoni then had a good stand with Pujara but when the skipper was dismissed immediately after Tea, it seemed as if the visitors were in with a chance to bowl out the Indians. But a stubborn resistance from Ashwin has led into an unbeaten 97-run stand with Pujara which saw the last session yielding 99 runs for the loss of just one wicket in 30 overs. India now have their noses in front and will look to push on tomorrow.

Anderson dismissed Gambhir early but Sehwag and Pujara steadied the ship. Sehwag and Tendulkar departed in quick succession and the Brits were back in the game. Kohli then had a good stand with Pujara before England struck twice again.

The Wankhede crowd stands up and applauds for Cheteshwar Pujara as he walks back. A terrific century yet again and he is in excellent form. It was a good day of cricket overall.

Pujara heaves a sigh of relief. 212/6

We are all ready for the play to start. Pragyan Ojha to begin proceedings. Pietersen to face. Here we go!

It was a day which belonged to England post which, one sees them in a string position as of now. The Cook-Pietersen stand definitely made the Indians go on the defensive. But the Brits certainly have a long, long way to go still, trailing by 149 runs. It is the World Test day today, with 4 series going on simultaneously - Australia-South Africa, Bangladesh-West Indies, India-England and Sri Lanka-New Zealand. Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the second Test at once what was previously known as Bombay!

Day 3, session 1...

That's it from us then! Tomorrow holds another exciting prospect in store and do join us for all the action at 0400 GMT (0930 IST) as Day 3 unravels. Until then, on behalf of all the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

On the other hand, if the Brits manage to see off the first session without much damage, they could actually be in with a shout of a decent first-innings lead. Cook is on course for his second successive century in Tests while Pietersen is looking good too. The bowling was good but the spinners were getting tired towards the end.

Cook and Pietersen then took advantage of the fielding placements and comfortably rotated the strike. England have brought the deficit down to 149 and this game is now a bit open. Should India strike early tomorrow and get a few wickets, pressure will be back on England.

A fabulous session for England. 101 runs scored in the 29 overs bowled and importantly, no wicket lost. Pietersen took the bull by the horns and took the attack to the opposition and the field was spread back.

64.3 H Singh to A Cook, That is a good wake-up call for Virender Sehwag who was seen yawning at first slip a ball ago. Short outside off, 88.2 kph, Cook goes for the cut but is too close to the ball and gets a bit of an outside edge which goes directly onto the left boot of Virender Sehwag at slip. Sehwag is on the ground and the batsmen take a couple. 178/2

64.2 H Singh to Cook, Down the leg side, 89.7 kph, Cook misses out on the flick shot and gets hit on the pads. 176/2

64.1 H Singh to Cook, Full and just outside off, watchfully defended. 176/2

64.4 S Broad to Ashwin, FOUR! Sublime! Full on middle, 126.5 kph, Ashwin punches this straight down the ground and beats mid on! Alastair Cook bites his finger-nails. Rahul Dravid on air says that Ashwin has got a gift of timing. 186/6

64.3 S Broad to Ashwin, Pushes this through the covers for a couple. 182/6

64.2 S Broad to Ashwin, Goes back and looks to turn it to the leg side but then adjusts well to defend. 180/6

63.1 M Panesar to Ashwin, FOUR! That is an exquisite shot! Full toss on middle, 90.2 kph, Ashwin comes down the track and flicks it through mid-wicket for a boundary! Poor James Anderson is the sole man on the leg side, at mid on and has to run all the way to retrieve the ball! The stand is worth 10 now. 179/6

61.6 H Singh to K Pietersen, Full outside off, 92 kph, Pietersen lunges forward to defend but gets a thick outside edge past slip to third man. Two runs taken. Poor running, that. Pietersen did not run at all as he thought Virender Sehwag would never get to the ball from slip. But the ball stopped near the ropes and Sehwag reached it! Just the two taken! 176/2

These are now the best Test figures in an innings for Monty Panesar, in India. His maiden four-wicket haul in this country.

61.2 M Panesar to MS Dhoni, OUT! The catch is clean! Landed outside off, Dhoni lunges forward to defend but the ball spins away, takes the leading edge and goes to Graeme Swann at second slip. Dhoni does not even bother asking Swann whether it carried and walks off but the umpires are not so sure. They stop Dhoni and it is referred upstairs for the legality of the catch. After a couple of close replays, it seems as if Swann has two fingers underneath the ball. Umpire Dar raises his finger. Dhoni departs for 29 and the 50-run stand has been broken. INDIA 169/6! 169/6

Interesting. Dhoni has been caught and he was walking, but has been asked to wait!

50-stand is up!

It will be Stuart Broad to begin proceedings after Tea. 7-0-33-0 so far. Not his best day. Pujara to face.

Welcome back. It has been an engrossing day of cricket so far. Honours have been evenly shared and both sides would be looking to go on top by the end of the day.

Day 1, session 3...

England have been good so far, not bowling too many loose balls and the inclusion of Monty Panesar has certainly profited them. It is a mystery as to why Broad has not been bowled at all after his first spell and England will need his services in the final session. Swann has been brilliant as usual. Join us back at 0900 GMT (1430 IST) for the final session...

An interesting session of play. 32 overs bowled, 2 wickets picked up and 80 runs scored. India have done well through this pair of Pujara and Dhoni with an unbeaten 48-run stand, else they would have been in trouble, losing Kohli and Pujara in quick succession.

57.3 G Swann to C Pujara, OUCH! That would have hurt. Short ball, on middle, 85.8 kph, Pujara rocks back and goes for the pull. Hits it from the middle of the bat but finds Alastair Cook at short leg. The ball lobs off the English skipper's body and lands well short of mid-wicket. Almost a deja vu of 2001? Sachin Tendulkar pulled a long hop off Mark Waugh which lobbed off Justin Langer at short leg and was taken brilliantly by Ricky Ponting at mid-wicket! 158/5

57.2 G Swann to Pujara, Landed on middle, 85 kph, Pujara goes back and works it towards backward square leg. 158/5

55.2 R Ashwin to Pietersen, Long hop, 84.5 kph, pulled behind square leg for a single. 159/2

54.4 H Singh to Pietersen, Oh no... not again! Rahane in trouble here. Full outside off, 87.6 kph, Pietersen sweeps this powerfully but straight into the body of substitute Ajinkya Rahane at short leg. The fielder immediately goes down on being hit. 153/2

36.3 H Singh to Pietersen, Full outside off, driven uppishly but just wide of the bowler towards mid off. Harbhajan would not mind that stroke. 77/2

36.2 H Singh to Pietersen, Goes right back and across and plays it straight to short leg. 77/2

36.1 H Singh to Pietersen, Full outside off, lunges out to defend. 77/2

The crowd is amusing itself here. Cannot wait for Anderson to start bowling. Has set up a stopwatch for the bowler and the roar is "5...4...3..2...1.." followed by "YEAAAHHHHHHH!" Anderson does not obey the orders though. Still taking time.

The players have walked out to the middle and it will be Harbhajan Singh to start off proceedings. Pietersen to face. All set! Here we go!

Right. Some exciting moments towards the end of the second session. England were looking comfortable but in the space of 3 overs, two letters - 'un' have been prefixed to it. 26 overs left in the day. Big question - Can England see off the session without losing a wicket? Bigger question - Will India rip through the middle and lower order in this session?

DAY 2, SESSION 3...

Harsha Bhogle tweets, "will not be short of action after tea as kp comes out. very interested in seeing how a class player adapts. how will he play ojha?"

India will walk away with the honours in that session. With the openers going berserk, it seemed as if even the spinners would not be effective but Harbhajan Singh's introduction caused some doubts in the batsmen's minds and eventually led to the wickets as Ojha profited. Just 51 more to avoid the follow-on but England might need to do a lot of hard work to try and battle it out in the last session. Cook continues to be their best batsman. Join us back at 0900 GMT (1430 IST) for the final session...

35.5 Ojha to Cook, LBW appeal, turned down. Smart batting by Cook, lunges out and thrusts his bat behind the pad, getting hit on the pad outside off. Arguably, that could have been thought off as not offering a shot but umpires rarely give those. 77/2

33.6 P Ojha to Trott, OUT! LBW! That was as plumb as one could get. The arm ball, 88.1 kph, drifting in, Trott goes back to work it away but misses and is hit flush in front. Umpire Dar was convinced that the ball was pitched in line and did not hesitate in raising his finger. Trott's poor form continues as he departs for a 6-ball duck, ENGLAND 68/2, trail by 259! 68/2

33.5 P Ojha to Trott, Big turn! Landed outside off, 84.9 kph, turning away, Trott lunges out to defend but is beaten by the big spin. 68/1

Tosses this one up to the batsman, 88.1 kph, outside off, Compton lunges forward to defend but the ball spins away and takes the outside edge. The ball goes low to Virender Sehwag at first slip who takes a good low catch. Ojha thanks the heavens above. Compton looks long and hard at the wicket, he would be feeling distraught, but that is the way the game goes. You cannot do much on such deliveries.

28.5 H Singh to Cook, LUCKY! Landed on middle, Cook looks to turn it to the leg side but is early into the shot and gets a leading edge which balloons in the air, but lands short of mid off! A quick single taken. Seem to go hand-in-hand, luck and form. But Harbhajan is bowling much better than the other two spinners. 65/0

Pujara is going off the field. The good thing is that he can move his right arm. Might put an ice-pack on it in the dressing room. Ajinkya Rahane is the substitute for Pujara.

The physio is out in the middle and looks like Pujara is not going to get up in a hurry.

27.1 R Ashwin to Cook, OUCH! That would have hurt. Full on middle and leg, Cook plays a full-blooded sweep shot which goes right into the ribs of Cheteshwar Pujara at short leg. He immediately goes down in pain. 59/0

We're back. Panesar to continue after Lunch.

The over-rate has been decent and it has been a riveting piece of action so far. It is the young brigade of Pujara and Kohli at the crease and the hosts will be hoping that the pair bats well after Lunch. England, on the other hand, need to keep chipping at the wickets. Join us back at 0640 GMT (1210 IST) for the second session...

An entertaining session. India started off poorly, losing Gambhir on the very second ball but Sehwag and Pujara counter-attacked. However, Panesar's twin strikes getting rid of Sehwag and Tendulkar have given England something for the session.

Virat Kohli walks in at number 5, replacing Tendulkar.

But the ball spins away from the batsman, goes past the outside edge and clatters the off stump! Panesar is jumping up and down in joy and the crowd has gone silent.
