India have made no changes to their team, despite having an unassailable 3-1 lead.

India captain MS Dhoni said, “The wicket looks very different. There is some green tinge and there could be help for the seamers.

“It is very difficult to make something as elaborate as this in the mountains. Credit to the local cricket association.

England captain Alastair Cook said, “This is an incedible place to play cricket.

“We have not quite been our best in the last couple of games but we want to do better here.”
