India vs England 4th Test: England skipper Ben Stokes showcased a range of emotions on the field on Day 2 at Ranchi as he celebrated with joy over the performance of spinner Shoaib Bashir, but also engaged in a heated exchange with umpire Kumar Dharmasena regarding the decision to turn on the floodlights of the stadium.

Ben Stokes was already disappointed with the third umpire's call to reverse Yashasvi Jaiswal's dismissal on 40 runs. Before the tea break, the weather took a greyish turn at Ranchi and the umpires decided to turn on the stadium's floodlights. Ben Stokes seemed unhappy with the decision and charged angrily towards on-field umpire Kumar Dharmasena, who responded to him calmly.

The intense emotions of the England skipper were understandable as England fought back well to end Day 2 to finish in a position of strength. This is a ‘do or die’ match for England as they are already trailing 2-1 in the 5-match series and are hoping to get a final showdown at Dharamshala.

Earlier on Day 1, England started off under pressure as debutant Akash Deep and Ravindra Jadeja clinched some quick wickets to send half of England's team back to the pavilion before Tea break. It took a classic Joe Root century to bring back England in the game and the visitors did well on Day 2 with their bowling.

Spinner Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley gave a scare to Indian batters as they clinched some crucial wickets and now India's first innings is resting on the shoulders of tail-enders. England is hoping to clinch the three wickets soon and come back to bat and expand their lead against India.

India vs England: What India need to stage a comeback

Former Indian cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle spoke on India's chances of a comeback against England on Day 3. He said that the tail-end batters must add at least 80 runs to stay in the game while the spinners need their game face on in the second innings.

“At this stage, the odds will be on the series being 2-2 going into Dharamshala. For India to be in the game, the tail needs to add at least another 80 and then back the spinners to bowl them back into the match," Harsha Bhogle said in a post on X.
