You need to be on aceed to figure out how India can escape this. Bowl tight, wear down the pitch. England bat all day tomorrow and get close to 400. Batting day 3 will be at its best. India need to make 500 maybe 600 and bat for 2 whole days, which, is possible but then hope the pitch does not stay firm and they skittle England for under 250. I don't think it ever happens.
Considering how India could possibly do it makes England's own victory at Headingly in 2019 after a first innings score of 67 seem all the more remarkable.

once again Birstow,Buttler and Ali have demonstrated why they should never be within a million miles of any test team which guarantees they will continue to be selected until they draw their pensions!!
I agree that butler and moheen are a waste of space in our test team, but Bairstow is ok and can get Test runs, nowever Butler is a waste of spaceamd Mohhen can at least bowl abit of spin, but only against the lesser teams.
