9.15am: England bat on
Just in case you thought you might be tuning into India’s first innings shortly, Ben Stokes rubbished that idea overnight. “No thoughts of a declaration tonight,” he said. “That would be stupid after winning the toss. In India you get as many runs as you can. If we can bat an hour tomorrow, we’ll be happy.” As a result, Dom Bess and Jack Leach will resume their partnership shortly.
