09: 33 AM IST - Players are on the pitch and R Ashwin is se to resume his over.

With yet another dominant performance in home Test series, India look to seal series triumph in the ongoing 5-match series with a game to spare.

Alastair Cook and his men still need 49 runs to make Virat Kohli and Co. bat again but with 6 wickets already gone, it is going to be a tough task handling in-form Indian bowlers on a tricky 5th day wicket.

Day 4 Recap:

Indian skipper Virat Kohli's witnessed another record-breaking day, securing his personal best of 235 in the traditional format of the game, while Jayant Yadav registered his name in the Indian cricket books as an all-rounder with a maiden hundred. Ravichandran Ashwin had dismissed Jake ball in the final over of the day and will be looking to restart India's proceedings with the ball on a bright note once again today.
