In fact, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow have dwarfed the mountain-like score given by India in the second innings. England need only 119 runs on the fifth day to win the fifth Test match. On the other hand, if the Indian team is as much as this Test match, then it will have to take seven wickets on the last day.
