The match ends in a draw as rain plays spoilsport on the final day of the first Test.

8.17 pm: Nope, it’s drizzling again. It just won’t stop!

8.05 pm: It has stopped raining! And the umpires have decided to take the 20-minute tea break. Great.

7.59 pm: According to the forecast on Google, the weather in Nottingham should be clear by about 9 pm IST. If that were to happen, and if there’s no more rain from there on, the ground staff will first need time to dry the outfield. With play possible till 12 am IST tonight, we will then be left with about 30-35 overs. India need 157 runs to win. Will they chase the target to settle for a draw?

6.43 pm: Some good news – the rain isn’t as heavy now and the super soppers are on the field. The umpires are having a quick inspection.

5.40 pm: The lunch break was supposed to end now with the start of the second session. But guess what, it’s still raining!

5.00 pm: The players will take an early lunch now. If needed, and if the rain stays away, play can go on till 12 am IST tonight.

Update: Lunch will be taken at 5 pm IST. It’s still raining.

4.10 pm: It’s raining even harder now at Trent Bridge. Seems we’re in for a long wait.

3.33 pm: Kohli and Root are out in the middle, having a chat with the umpires. No umbrellas in sight. Seems to be a slight drizzle at the moment but enough to delay the start.

3.18 pm: It’s raining in Nottingham! We’re likely to have a delayed start.

3.00 pm: Hello and welcome to live coverage of day five of the first Test between India and England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Jasprit Bumrah’s five-wicket haul left India well-placed to win the first Test despite a fine hundred from England captain Joe Root at Trent Bridge on Saturday.

Bumrah took 5/64 in an England second innings where Root’s 109 on the fourth day was the centrepiece.

That gave the unorthodox paceman impressive match figures of 9/110 after he had taken 4/46 in a meagre England first innings total of 183, where Root’s 64 was again the top score.

At stumps, the visitors were 52/1 in their second innings, needing a further 157 runs to reach a victory target of 209.

Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara were both 12 not out after KL Rahul, who top-scored with 84 in India’s first innings, was caught behind off Stuart Broad for a well-made 26.
