all traces of batsmen removed, even reason brushed away in thursday's dust. well, england began needing wickets. jack leach struck. if only they had another spin bowler. well, they do, it'sjoe root. oh, there we go! rishabh pant fell to the captain's first ball — it couldn't get better, until it did. root to washington sundar. absolute beauty from root! look back in anguish — yeah, clean bowled. india 145 all out, a lead ofjust 33. joe root took five wickets for eight runs. remember, strictly speaking, he's not even a bowler. well, come back quick with your bat. in the battle of who scores less, england then excelled. 0h, a wicket on the very first delivery! crawley and bairstow fell with a score of none. the shiny pink ball slid

and deceived on the dry earth. ben stokes and joe root fell, like so many. ravichandran ashwin to ollie pope. well, how do i play that? england's second innings — 81 all out. it meant india needed 49 to win. it meantjoy — unless you had tickets for friday. rohit sharma hit the winning runs with maximum impact. especially on the bowler, england's captain. it's been tough, you can see it's been tough on their guys as well, who are more used to these conditions than we are. but we just had to keep trying to find a way, trying to explore, to experiment. root says the authorities should decide if this pitch was fit for purpose. well, there's a week to prepare for the final test — and to try to forget this one. joe wilson, bbc news. that's it. now on bbc one, time for the news where you are. have a very good night.

hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are james moore, chief business commentator at the independent and sam lister, deputy political editor at the daily express. let's take a look at tomorrow's front pages, starting with... most of the papers lead on the queen's first public remarks on covid vaccination — including the telegraph. it reports that the queen told senior officers overseeing the delivery of the vaccine across all four uk nations that people who refuse the vaccine should think of other people. the metro picks the story for its lead too. it quotes the queen saying that the injection was harmless and her remarks about how quickly the roll—out had happend. the mail also has the story on its front page: describing it
10:33 pm
as �*an astonishing intervention�* a photo of lady gaga dominates a number of papers including the independent. it's after the singer's dogwalker was shot and her two french bulldogs stolen. the i leads with the news that nhs workers will not receive a pay rise in next month's budget. the paper reports that the chancellor, rishi sunak won't make a decision on salaries in the public sector until may. news that the weather system that brings warm and mild weather to europe has weakened, leads the guardian. the paper says climate breakdown is the probable cause, and it could mean colder winters in the uk. so let's begin... we've got quite a few stories, quite a few papers to get through. looks like especially the tabloids all leading with her majesty the queen. and what's being described as in historic intervention. she's speaking in favour of the

sense that this was a meeting she was discussing with four senior health leaders, officers whose oversee the delivery of the vaccine. and the image is, i believe it was a zoom meeting. technology at its best that we are all getting used to. it's fascinating how all the papers picking up on it. the suns at the front page, daily mail as well. i think this is a really important intervention. i was looking today for the _ intervention. i was looking today for the column i wrote at the take-up _ for the column i wrote at the take—up level. and the take—up level has been _ take—up level. and the take—up level has been really good. it surprised the government. about a 90% take—up ievei~ _ the government. about a 90% take—up ievei~ they'd _ the government. about a 90% take—up level. they'd expected 75 based on previous _ level. they'd expected 75 based on previous vaccination programs. for us to— previous vaccination programs. for us to get— previous vaccination programs. for us to get out of this lockdown and for the _ us to get out of this lockdown and for the governments road back up to be for the governments road back up to he realised _ for the governments road back up to be realised you need the vaccine to be realised you need the vaccine to he as_ be realised you need the vaccine to be as effective as possible. for that to — be as effective as possible. for that to happen you really need mass coverage _ that to happen you really need mass coverage. you need everyone to get it. because _ coverage. you need everyone to get it. because that's the only way it

10:38 pm
businesses supported through this obviously, terrible time. keeping workers supported. this message that eventually this will have to come to an end and the money has got to be found from somewhere to claw it back. i think they are trying to put this picture out there just to warn people that although there will be a spending package i think he's getting about 30 billion just to keep covid support, to keep things go untiljune when obviously we are expecting all things going well for the restrictions to be lifted. there is this kind of flip side that there will be pain as well at some point to find the money. two significant interventions won from david counterman and one from philip hammond. we don't hearfrom david cameron very often these days. he tries to keep on the down low. but he's been speaking to cnn to say he thinks any tax rises at this point
10:39 pm
would bejust thinks any tax rises at this point would be just wrong. thinks any tax rises at this point would bejust wrong. he thinks any tax rises at this point would be just wrong. he says we are in a wartime situation. philip hammond on the other hand ourformer chancellor is saying look, this can't go on forever. it is going to have to be putting out the message that eventually money will have to be found somewhere to stop its an estimated £40 billion whole caused by the pandemic that needs to be filled somehow.— by the pandemic that needs to be filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. filled somehow. eight look at the i, james 0ne — filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. one think— filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. one think we _ filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. one think we are _ filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. one think we are not - filled somehow. eight look at the i, james. one think we are not going| filled somehow. eight look at the i, i james. one think we are not going to james. 0ne think we are not going to here is a pay rise for nhs workers. talk us through this front page. this is going to be political dynamite because if there is one group _ dynamite because if there is one group out — dynamite because if there is one group out there that people really sympathise with and really deserve a pay raise _ sympathise with and really deserve a pay raise because they do, it is nhs workers _ pay raise because they do, it is nhs workers i_ pay raise because they do, it is nhs workers. i think the chancellor is playing _ workers. i think the chancellor is playing with fire in not doing anything. if he's going to announce some _ anything. if he's going to announce some pain — anything. if he's going to announce some pain or at least say to us
10:40 pm
we've — some pain or at least say to us we've got— some pain or at least say to us we've got to have some pain down the line but— we've got to have some pain down the line but look, i'll throw you a bone. — line but look, i'll throw you a bone, have a thing i hear is a pay rise for— bone, have a thing i hear is a pay rise for the — bone, have a thing i hear is a pay rise for the nhs. bone, have a thing i hear is a pay rise forthe nhs. it bone, have a thing i hear is a pay rise for the nhs. it would be smart politics— rise for the nhs. it would be smart politics for — rise for the nhs. it would be smart politics for him to do that. and rise for the nhs. it would be smart politics for him to do that.- politics for him to do that. and in theory we — politics for him to do that. and in theory we are _ politics for him to do that. and in theory we are hearing _ politics for him to do that. and in theory we are hearing that - politics for him to do that. and in theory we are hearing that he - politics for him to do that. and in i theory we are hearing that he won't make a decision on workers salaries until may. after the pate review. as james was saying there is going to be a lot of commentary given what front line staff and the nhs have faced over the course of a year now. i think there is great sympathy out there there are people who've been out on the front line helping to protect us all. i think there aren't many people out there i'm sure who would really oppose some kind of reward for nhs staff. there are all these different staging post where you have different types, different ways of sorting out there pay pay review bodies and that sort of things which do make a recommendation. that can slightly skew things in terms of timing. also
10:41 pm
i think in the budget there is not going to be an awful lot of money to play with. and covid recovery and support is obviously going to be the main focus when it comes to spending. main focus when it comes to spending-— main focus when it comes to sendina. ., �*, ., ., spending. indeed. that's going to come u- spending. indeed. that's going to come on next _ spending. indeed. that's going to come up next week— spending. indeed. that's going to come up next week so _ spending. indeed. that's going to come up next week so we - spending. indeed. that's going to come up next week so we will. come up next week so we will definitely be monitoring data. at the independent now because james, at your paper it's got an exclusive, it's got an image of lady gaga, it's the dogs that have been stolen at gunpoint put up let's talk about the exclusive from your health correspondent. i exclusive from your health correspondent.— exclusive from your health correspondent. exclusive from your health corresondent. ~' ,, ., correspondent. i think with sean linton has _ correspondent. i think with sean linton has done _ correspondent. i think with sean linton has done here _ correspondent. i think with sean linton has done here is - correspondent. i think with sean linton has done here is brought| correspondent. i think with sean i linton has done here is brought up correspondent. i think with sean - linton has done here is brought up a really— linton has done here is brought up a really important issue. what he saying — really important issue. what he saying is — really important issue. what he saying is that the nhs is under such pressure _ saying is that the nhs is under such pressure because of covid that there are a lot _ pressure because of covid that there are a lot of— pressure because of covid that there are a lot of urgent operations that are a lot of urgent operations that are not— are a lot of urgent operations that are not getting done. and you have people _ are not getting done. and you have people with cancer, people who may lose a _ people with cancer, people who may lose a limb _ people with cancer, people who may lose a limb and these are getting held up — lose a limb and these are getting held up. and we kind of been talking about— held up. and we kind of been talking about elective surgeries. the fact
