Sehwag leads ominous India fightback
England's last four wickets could muster only 14 runs, and then they were unable to take one of their own on a chastening fourth morning of the third Test against India.
The tourists established a first-innings lead of 207 after being bowled out for 523 at Eden Gardens.
Then even after Virender Sehwag (49no) and Gautam Gambhir carried India to an ominous 86 for none at lunch, the hosts were still more than 100 adrift of making England bat again in pursuit of a victory which would make the series score 2-1 to them with one to play.
England arrived on Saturday morning in the hope of maximising the pressure, and an hour's profitable batting would have been their first wish. Instead, overnight pair Matt Prior and Graeme Swann could add only a single between them to their existing seventh-wicket stand of 56.
Prior drove the first ball of the day for a single, only for Swann to then immediately become Pragyan Ojha's fourth victim - edging another attempted drive to slip. Then Prior went to cut Zaheer Khan at the other end, and edged behind - England's second departure in the space of seven balls.
Steven Finn and James Anderson managed a boundary each, but the introduction of Ravichandran Ashwin for Ojha (four for 142) brought two wickets in two balls to conclude the innings.
Ashwin had previously conceded 183 runs for his one success - but after Anderson edged to slip and Monty Panesar went lbw first ball, despite an apparent inside-edge, the off-spinner had two more at no further cost.
India's second innings began with a four from the first ball, Gambhir squeezing an inside-edge square off Anderson.
England had a half-chance to see off each of the openers. Sehwag escaped on seven when Swann could not hang on to a low one-handed catch to his left at second slip off Anderson; then Gambhir pushed Panesar off the face of the bat to short-leg, where Ian Bell could not quite react in time.
The more worrying aspect for the tourists, though, was the increasing ease with which Sehwag in particular was playing their spinners.
