New Delhi: Ravindra Jadeja removed Alastair Cook for the third time in fourth Tests as first day of fourth India-England Test witnesses a keen contest in Mumbai.

After winning the toss, England captain Cook opted to bat first. He and debutant Keaton Jennings posted a good 99-run opening stand at the Wankhede Stadium, which was hosting it's first ever Test match after the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar.

Cook reached 2000 runs against India in the period, but a magical delivery from Jadeja got the better of England captain.

That happened off the second ball Jadeja's first over. Jadeja got enough purchase from the pitch to surprise Cook, but it was Parthiv Patel, who rocked the wicket with a brilliant stumping.

Here's the video to that feat:

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.
