Video - Both Teams Feel Fourth Test Nicely Poised

Replying to India's score of 152 all out, England had made their way 237 for six when rain arrived and no further play was possible due to an area of the outfield remaining wet.
Bell scored 58 before falling in the morning session while Aaron took the wicket of Moeen Ali and the catch to dismiss Chris Jordan for 13.
"Poised very nicely," Bell said when asked about the state of the game after the day's play was called off.
"Hopefully tomorrow (Saturday) we can well, certainly get past a 150 lead which would put us in a nice position.
"But so far I think it has been a great Test match. I think probably the best cricket wicket we have had all season.
"You know, good pace, good to bat on. But like I said, something there for everyone."
Aaron admitted that England hold an advantage at the moment, but he hopes India can find a way back into the game.
"As the game is poised at moment, I think that England are ahead obviously, but they aren't too much ahead," he said.
"If we have a couple of quick wickets and then even like a hundred runs lead, it is quite manageable on this wicket.
"It has changed drastically from what we saw in the first session of day one and I am sure it will get flatter as we progress."
Aaron's delivery to dismiss Ali, clean bowled with a perfectly placed swinging yorker, was one of the highlights of the shortened day's play.
And he revealed that he sensed it was just a matter of time before he earned the breakthrough.
"He (captain MS Dhoni) asked me if I wanted to bowl another couple of overs or an over and I felt I was bowling well in the previous two overs and I knew that it was just a matter of time for me getting that wicket.
"And yeah, that over (to Moeen Ali) I thought I would give it all in that over before lunch. And yeah, that chat was all it was about."
It was left to Bell to sum up the over-riding feeling at the ground though - one of frustration with so much time lost due to one area of the ground near the boundary that wasn't dry enough for the players to return.
"I think everyone is frustrated aren't they today? Yeah, it is disappointing as I say with the Test match balanced so nicely. Yeah, we would love to be out there."
