Four in four Tests: Alastair Cook becomes Ravindra Jadeja's bunny

New Delhi: Ravindra Jadeja removed Alastair Cook for the fourth time in fourth Tests as India took complete control of the fourth Test in Mumbai on Sunday.

On the fourth day, Jadeja fired in to trap the England captain in front in the 12th over. Cook called for review, but it was on-filed umpire's call as the tracker showed the ball hitting the top edge of leg stump.

The wicket was Jadeja's 100th, coming in the 24th match.

Earlier on the day, Virat Kohli and Jayant Yadav posted a 241-run 8th-wicket stand to help India post 631 in response to England's first innings total of 400 runs

With a deficit of 231, England needed a good start to their second innings. But first innings' century maker Keaton Jennings was out the second ball, to Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Then, Jadeja dealt heavy blow by removing Cook and Moeen Ali in quick time to reduce England at 49/3 after 13.2 overs at Tea.

In the first innings of Mumbai Test too, Jadeja removed Cook off the very second ball of his spell, thanks to a brilliant stumping from Parthiv Patel.

India have taken a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. England need to win the Mumbai Test to force a draw, given they also win the last match, scheduled at Chennai.
