India will go for the victory rather than just try to seek survival on the final day of the first Test against England in Chennai, says their experienced seamer Ishant Sharma.
The hosts closed day four on 1-39, chasing a Test record 420 to win.
"If we get a good start, I am sure we can chase this down," Ishant said on Channel Four.
"We have a fearless batting line-up. We are very positive, so it's about how we start and then we can think about how we go through the game."
A total of 15 wickets fell on day four as India - 6-257 overnight - were bowled out for 337, a first-innings deficit of 241.
Having opted against enforcing the follow-on, England made 178 in their second innings before Jack Leach bowled Rohit Sharma in the 13 overs possible before the close.
A dry pitch is showing increasing signs of wear, and uneven bounce and reverse swing look likely to be factors as England attempt to take nine wickets in a minimum of 90 overs on the final day.
Yet England, understandably, believe they are still firmly in the driver's seat.
"We're really happy with where we're at, with that many runs on the board," said England bowling consultant Jon Lewis, who is tipping spinner Jack Leach to be England's potential matchwinner.
The only stage where India have threatened to flip the momentum in the match came when Rishabh Pant went on the counter-attack in India's first innings and smashed Leach for five sixes on his way to 91.
It was the kind of assault that can leave its mark on a bowler but Leach was unfazed when he returned to the attack with figures of 0-100 on Monday, dismissing Ravichandran Ashwin and Shahbaz Nadeem to help wrap up the tail.
He was then trusted with the new ball as the hosts padded up for the second time and took out Rohit Sharma's off-stump with a handy dose of turn past the outside edge.
"I was so pleased Leachy got that wicket tonight, I thought he really deserved that," said bowling coach Jon Lewis.
"Every day as a cricketer you go out wanting five wickets or a hundred, but that doesn't often happen.
"Jack showed his character with the way he came back after Pant got after him yesterday. He's bowled an absolutely beauty to get out Rohit and looks a real threat on this pitch.
"He could walk away with four or five wickets tomorrow and we could win a Test match - I'm pretty sure people won't be talking about Rishabh Pant's first-innings runs if he does that."
