The India England Test at Edgbaston is on a knife edge with India needing 84 runs and England five wickets. Meanwhile, England spearhead James Anderson has admitted that England will go to bed dreaming out getting Virat Kohli out early on Day four.

"We'll go to bed dreaming about getting Kohli out first thing," admitted Anderson in a CricBuzz report. "We need five wickets, simple as that, fairly quickly otherwise, they'll get the runs," added Anderson.

On the plans for what is going to be a gripping finale, Anderson said, "We've just got to give it everything we've got in the morning for the first 15-20 overs, leave absolutely nothing out there. It's a really exciting place to be, because you know we could do something special by winning this. It's such a close Test match."

Anderson did admit that England's poor catching has cost them. "It's an area where we've struggled for two years now," said Anderson.
