3.45am: Good morning and welcome to Sportsmail's live coverage of the fourth day of the second day between India and England in Mumbai.
And if you are an England fan then it promises to be an exciting morning with the chance of victory with a day to spare.
Yesterday, Kevin Pietersen lead the way with the bat and then it was the turn of Monty Panesar to leave India in a spin with the ball, can he do the same this morning
3.50am: Play is due to get underway at 4am (UK time) and Gambhir and Harbhajan will be the men in the middle for India as they try and lead the fightback.34th over: India 127-7 (Gambhir 58, Harbhajan 6)
34th over: India 127-7 (Gambhir 58, Harbhajan 6)
Monty Panesar opens the bowling for England, and Harbhajan makes a statement of intent with the first ball, smashing the ball over mid-on for FOUR. Gambhir then shows his intent with a FOUR from a loosner on the leg side. 10 runs from the first over for India.
35th over: India 128-8 (Gambhir 59, Khan 0)
Graeme Swann is the bowler at the other end. Gambhir works one away off the pads for a single.
WICKET: Harbhajan c Trott b Swann 6
Breakthrough for England in the second over. Swann gets some good bounce on the ball and it comes off the gloves and is a simple catch for Jonathan Trott at slip.
36th over: India 129-8 (Gambhir 60, Khan 0)
Panesar finds his range and after 10 from his first over, India manage just one off the over from Gambhir.
37th over: India 131-8 (Gambhir 61, Khan 1)
Gambhir takes a single off the first ball, in normal circumstances he would try and keep the strike as much as possible, but in this case, every run counts so he has to take the single when they are on offer. Khan gets off the mark with an inside edge.
Spin twins: Swann (right) and Panesar (left) mopped up the final few wickets for England
38th over: India 131-9 (Gambhir 61, Ojah 0)
Panesar gets the chance to bowl at Khan.
WICKET: Khan C Prior b Panesar 1
England's excellent start to the morning continues as Panesar gets in on the act. Khan goes for a slog sweep and miss-times the shot and get a huge top edge and Prior gets himself into position to take a simple catch.
Ojha is the final man out in the middle.Wicket maiden for Monty.
39th over: India 131-9 (Gambhir 61, Ojha 0)
Hugh shout for LBW off Swann's first ball to Ojha, but the ball was probably turning too much. Maiden for Swann.
40th over: India 136-9 (Gambhir 62, Ojah 4)
Gambhir continues to take runs when they are on offer and expose the tail. One off the first ball. Ojha then hits a FOUR as he drills it down the ground. Next ball Ojha gets an inside edge to the ball and Swann takes the catch at slip. But for some reason Umpire Dar does not give it out, a quite bizarre decision.
Last man out: Gautam Gambhir was the final wicket to fall
41st over: India 136-9 (Gambhir 62, Ojah 4)
Swann chips in with another maiden.
42nd over: India 139-9 (Gambhir 64, Ojah 5)
Ojha gets an inside edge off the first ball and takes a single. India then go for two of the penultimate ball and it is nearly a run out, poor running from India, but they do get home.
43rd over: India 140-9 (Gambhir 64, Ojah 6)
Ojha takes a single with a thick outside edge.
44th over: India 142-9 (Gambhir 65, Ojah 6)
Panesar gets one to turn sharply and it goes past Prior for a bye and then Gambhir goes onto his back foot to work one round the corner for one.
44th over: India 142-9 (Gambhir 65, Ojah 6)
WICKET: Gambhir LBW b Swann 65
That is it! Swann takes the final wicket of the innings with an LBW that Tony Hill has no hesitation in raising his finger, despite a hint of bat before it hit the pad. While two wrongs don't make a right, England will feel justice is done after the clear catch was not given a couple of overs ago.
INDIA ALL OUT FOR 142
1st over: England 8-0 (Cook 4 Compton 0)
England need just 57 runs to win the Test. Ravi Ashwin opens the bowling and the first ball goes for four byes. Alastair Cook then tries a cut shot and get an inside edge and sees it away for FOUR.
2nd over: England 13-0 (Cook 4 Compton 5)
Nick Compton looks to be positive from the start and smashes the ball from Ojha down the ground for FOUR, he then takes a single off the next ball.
3rd over: England 21-0 (Cook 4 Compton 13)
Ashwin bowls a full toss to Compton and the England batsman does not miss out as he times the ball perfectly as he drives the ball wide of mid-on for FOUR. Compton seems to be in a hurry, he takes another FOUR with a reverse sweep.
4th over: England 25-0 (Cook 7 Compton 14)
Cook takes a single off the first ball from Ojha. Compton takes a single, these two don't look like they want to hang around for too long, they want to get the job done as quickly as possible. Cook adds a couple more.
Positive play: England batsman Nick Compton scored 30 not out as the tourists won
5th over: England 31-0 (Cook 11 Compton 16)
Leg bye off the first ball, and then Cook takes a single off the second ball, these two are rotating the strike well. Cook finds the gap and gets the ball wide of point and take three runs.
6th over: England 38-0 (Cook 11 Compton 22)
Good footwork from Compton as he hits a maximum down the ground for a flat SIX. England have broken the back of this total, they need just 19 more to win.
7th over: England 43-0 (Cook 15 Compton 23)
Harbhajan Singh is on to bowl for India. Cook drives the ball off the pads for three and then Compton drives one to long-on for one. Big shout for LBW for Cook, but it is outside the line.
8th over: England 45-0 (Cook 15 Compton 24)
One bye off the first ball, Compton, who is playing very positively, gets a single.
Professional job: Alastair Cook saw England home to victory
