Anything can happen on Day Five in the fourth Test at Headingley, but Ravindra Jadeja is the man who can swing things in India's favour. We''re not saying this, England all-rounder Moeen Ali is.

"Jasprit Bumrah is one of those bowlers that can make anything happen, but Jadeja is the biggest threat on that wicket. It's such a flat wicket but we're still going to have to play well. India always fight back strongly and that's something we're going to have to be wary about," Ali told Sky Sports on Monday.
