Ind vs Eng LIVE Score – 99 Runs lead for England in 1st innings: Earlier, Indian bowlers bundled England on 290 in their first innings as the hosts lead visitors by 99 in the fourth Test against India at the Kennington Oval on Friday. Things looked pretty grim in the morning session when they were struggling at 62/5, but the middle and lower middle-order batsmen stitched some useful partnerships to help England bounce back from that situation.
England’s score read 290 — leading by 99 runs. Pope and Woakes mixed caution with aggression as they contributed vital 50s. The last-wicket stand just extended things for a little bit longer than Virat Kohli and his troops would have liked.
Initially, it was the partnership between Bairstow and Pope that steadied the ship, and then it were the contributions from Pope and Woakes that helped England stretch that lead closer to the 100-run mark.
Thakur took the all-important wicket of Pope after which Jadeja bowled Ollie. Pope went back pavilion after scoring a gritty 81. Woakes then stepped up and scored a quick 50 before getting run out.
Off the action, Daniel Jarvis — also known as Jarvo 69 — invaded the pitch again on the second day of the ongoing fourth Test. The incident took place during the 34th over of the England innings which was being bowled by Umesh Yadav and the match had to be halted for five minutes. England are all out for 290!

Shardul Thakur scored 2nd ever fastest half-century for India as Virat Kohli’s team were bundled out for just 191. Thakur scored 57 but it was Chris Woakes who hogged all the limelight with a four-wicket haul on his comeback.
Ollie Robinson took three wickets while James Anderson and Craig Overton returned with one wicket each.
Resuming the third and final session at 122/6, India lost the wicket of Rishabh Pant (9) pretty early on as the left-handed batsman went for a big shot off the bowling of Chris Woakes, but he only managed to hand a simple catch to Moeen Ali.
Shardul Thakur then joined hands with Umesh Yadav and the former played a counter-attacking inning and England was left searching for answers. Shardul brought up his half-century off just 31 balls in the 60th over and all of a sudden, India gained an upper hand.
Shardul’s (57) knock finally came to an end in the 61st over as he was sent back to the pavilion by Woakes and the eighth wicket partnership of 63 runs came to an end. In the end, the visitors were bowled out for 191.
