9.15am: All results possible
A reminder of the match situation ahead of the final day. England need to take nine wickets in 90 overs, after Jack Leach dismissed Rohit Sharma on the fourth evening. If they fail to do so, we’re heading for a draw – unless India can pull off another remarkable heist by scoring 381 fifth-day runs on a wearing Chepauk surface.
There was plenty of discussion yesterday about England’s go-slow after tea as they looked to set up a declaration, but George Dobell wrote that after they had dominated large swathes of the match, their caution was understandable. In the India camp, R Ashwin and Ishant Sharma were bullish about their chances of pulling off the win.
