    (For ball-by-ball commentary scroll down to the bottom of the page)

    Day 4 round-up: India's batting capitulation continued in the Southampton Test as chasing a stiff 445 to win, the visitors were reeling at 112/4 at stumps on Day 4 - leaving England within striking distance of a series-levelling victory on the final day.

    Riding on James Anderson's 5 for 53, England didn't take time to wrap up the Indian first innings at 330 on the fourth morning, which gave them a gigantic 239-run first-innings lead.

    Alastair Cook then decided not to enforce the follow-on and led England's brisk second innings with a knock of 70*, well supported by Joe Root's 56, to take England to 205 for 4 declared for a lead of 444 runs.
