India can bat their way to safety on this, depending on what condition it is in tomorrow. But if there was any pitch you were going to try and bat your way to safety for a day and a half on, well, this is it. A win is impossible at this stage I think, but India can still try and rescue a draw.
Either way, there will be some hard and long discussions about the bowling before the next test.
