1.35pm: Archer finishes it

No five-for for Leach, who picks up the No. 9, Shahbaz Nadeem, via a deflection off the keeper to slip in over after Kohli’s dismissal; Root then went back to Archer for the final wicket, Jasprit Bumrah nicking behind to seal victory by 227 runs for England. This is England’s sixth win in a row away from home, and their first in India since 2012. It’s only India’s second defeat in that timeframe – but it has set the series up beautifully, the tourists 1-0 up with three to play.

1.15pm: Stokes gets Kohli

That’s the big one! This emphasises just how difficult the pitch has become. Kohli had been almost faultless in this innings, barely playing a false shot, but is deceived by one which shoots through from a length, with a big puff of dust coming off the surface in the process. It pings back his off stump, and England are on the cusp of their sixth consecutive away Test win.
