England’s front line pace bowler James Anderson will “go to bed dreaming” of getting India’s skipper out, who’s currently looking good at 43 (76) , coming back after a mammoth 149 in the first innings – Virat seems motivated to make it 1-0 in favor of India. While England will go out to hunt the final five wickets on the fourth but what seems to be the final day of the Test, which will lead England to a famous win over Test number one team - India. Here’s what Anderdson he had to say:
"We've just got to give it everything we've got in the morning for the first 15-20 overs - leave absolutely nothing out there," said Anderson.
"It's a really exciting place to be, because you know we could do something special tomorrow by winning this - such a close Test match. So we'll go to bed dreaming about getting Kohli out first thing," He added.
Talking about how that drop of Kohli by Malan in the first innings could define the Test, he further added.
"I've been encouraged the way I've bowled at him so far. I found the edge a few times in the first innings and on another day I could have got him for 20. Then we're not talking about how brilliant he is,”
"You can't drop him on 21, because he's one of the best players in the world, and he'll capitalise on that - which he did. But we've just got to go away and know we can get him.
"No one is invincible in world cricket. We can get him out, and we'll be trying to do that in the morning" The leading wicket taking of England in Test cricket concurred.
As it stands India are 110 for the loss of 5 wickets,the opening hour of the fourth day between England and India will be crucial for both the teams as they’ll be looking to start off their campaign with a historic win.
