Over 97.3 Jayant Yadav bowls a tossed up delivery to JM Anderson, out LBW! Anderson lunges forward and ends up playing outside the line. But he misses and the ball rapped on the pads and Umpire says not out. India went for a review.Oh, it's hitting. Smashing leg-stump according to HawkEye.

India won by 246 runs and lead the series with 1-0

Cook: Not a great moment [his dismissal yesterday]. We knew going into the last day, 9 wickets, obviously disappointing to get out right at the end. The first day was the easiest to bat. It became harder after that. Was a good toss to win no doubt about it. Disappointed at losing those 5 wickets on Day 2. India is where you have to score first innings runs. Virat played very well. After losing those 5 wickets, we showed a lot of character and fight. We set out store in the fourth innings which means the margin of victory is greater but we showed fight. We go to Mohali. It's hard. We've played some good cricket at various stages. Only takes a couple of games to get back in the series. We've lost this game but we hold our heads high. We appreciate all the support here.

Virat Kohli is Man of the Match.

Kohli: It's been a lucky ground for me. Every innings I've scored here. I get a good feel coming here, similar to Adelaide. The atmosphere in the stadium is such that you want to play aggressive cricket. We wanted to make sure we bat deep in the first innings, get 450+ and that's exactly what we did. That's what we did in Rajkot, scoreboard pressure plays a big role. It was tough in the second innings. Biggest positive is the way the fast bowlers bowled. And Jayant Yadav. It's priceless those contributions. The young man, to show the character he did. I'm very happy with the start he's had. For a young man to come in and have the vision to take wickets and to tell you about the field. You know this guy knows what he's doing. It's lovely to have all 5 bowlers who can give you wickets at crucial stages. We're playing some really good cricket. Don't want to be complacent. We respect the team England is. Need to strike the right balance of not getting too desperate and not getting complacent either.
