Down and Right Out

Fifth Test, Chennai (day four):
England 477 & 12-0
India 759-7 dec: Nair 303*, Rahul 199
England are 270 runs behind
Karun Nair struck a triple century to send India to their highest Test score of 759-7 declared and the highest amassed by any team against England.
Nair, playing in his third Test, made 303 not out to become only the second India batsman to make a triple century.
His effort on day four of the fifth Test in Chennai left England needing to bat out the final day to avoid defeat.
The tourists, who have already lost the series, survived five overs to close on 12-0, still 270 behind.
