India vs England 4th test live streaming begins as India plays England in the 4th and final test at Nagpur. This is a do or die situation for India as almost everything seems to be shattered and scattered for Indian team. However bad form the team used to be in but they were never under so much of pressure in a home test series. Almost nothing is clicking in favour of India.
Pitches prepared to support Indian spinners are supporting the England spinners more. Indian spinners have not been regularly successful to upset the England batsmen. On the contrary the England spinners Swann and Panesar have striked breakthroughs at regular and short intervals thus dismantling Indian innings every time since the Mumbai test match.
Indian batsmen have lacked application, responsibility and patience which are a must in test cricket. We have a lot of application from the England batsman primarily from the captain Cook and Pietersen. Cook has been in an unbeatable form and creating newer records as a captain and as a batsman.
Cheteshwar Pujara started the test series very well but after the first innings at Wankhede he has seen a huge drop in his performances. Some quick back to pavilion shots or run outs has not helped his cause. On the other hand Sehwag and Gambhir are inconsistent with their performances and they are not able to convert good starts into big innings or partnerships. Kohli, Dhoni and Sachin's performances have been completely disappointing so far.
R Ashwin has looked the most confident Indian batsman in this series. He has scored 214 runs in 5 innings with the highest score of 91 runs not out at Kolkata. He has hit 28 impressive boundaries as well. At times his technique has looked better than the prime batsmen of India in this team.
Yuvraj (average 25), Sachin (average 22), Dhoni (average 18.40) and Kohli (average 17) have highly disappointed and they need to anyhow click here at Nagpur if India has to win. It is a do or die situation for India. A win here will be a confidence booster for India before their series against Pakistan and a draw or a loss here will give England a long awaited test series win in India!
