India are currently nearing 400 runs, which brings then closer to the trail and the hosts look positive on Day 4. This is also the highest score for Virat Kohli since November 2019.

Meanwhile,

KS Bharat looked in his prime form after nearing to half century, but unfortunately had to be departed after Lyon’s delivery gives India a huge blow. India loses their 5th wicket as KS Bharat’s edge handed an easy wicket to Lyon.

But for a result oriented end, keeping in mind the scenario of WTC Finals, the blues have to gear up.

India will try to win this game and the 3-1 series in order to advance to the World Test Championship championship game. If they lose this match and Sri Lanka win their ongoing series against New Zealand 2-0 then the Lankans will qualify for the WTC final against Australia. The World Team Championship final will be played between India and Australia at the Oval in June if India draws and Sri Lanka fails to completely destroy the Kiwis.
