Meanwhile, India’s tail once wagged well to put their side to a good total in the 3rd innings. The last four wickets have added 154 runs for India with Shardul Thakur leading the charge with a 60-run knock. Overnight batters Ravindra Jadeja and Virat Kohli couldn’t add much before Ajinkya Rahane getting out for a duck.

England have the momentum with them having India at 312/6 and fancying their chances to bowl out Virat Kohli & Co for a cheap total. But Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur added 100+ runs for the seventh wicket before Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah added another 36 runs to set a 368-run target.
