England 400 (Jennings 112) vIndia 146-1 (Vijay 70no)Fourth Test, Mumbai, day twoScorecard
After Jos Buttler led England resurgence to take them to 400 runs in their first innings, Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara shared an unbeaten century stand to ensure India reached 146 for one at stumps on day two of the fourth Test in Mumbai.
England resumed the day at 288 for five. In the third over of the day, Ravichandran Ashwin (6-112) had Ben Stokes (31) caught behind. India had to use a review to overturn the decision.
Jos Buttler (76) survived a close LBW by review from India in the 102nd over. However, England lost Chris Woakes (11) and Adil Rashid (4) at the other end and were reduced to 334 for eight.
Buttler completed a fine half-century needing 106 deliveries to achieve it and England went into lunch at 385 for eight.
It took India just 31 more deliveries to dismiss the remaining two wickets and bowl out the visitors for 400. Ashwin picked six wickets while Ravindra Jadeja (4-109) had a four-wicket haul as well.
In their first innings, Indian openers Lokesh Rahul (24) and Vijay (70 not out) added a solid 39-run opening stand before the former was castled by Moeen Ali (1-44).
However, Vijay and Pujara (47 not out) ensured India went into tea at 62 for one.
The final session saw India upping the ante a bit and Vijay completed his fifty off 126 deliveries and also brought the 50-run stand with Pujara.
At stumps, India posted 146 for one and are trailing England by 254 runs with three more days of play left in the game.
