IND vs ENG: India holds the advantage heading into day 4, but you never know with this series. Rohit Sharma brought about his 8th Test ton in style, his first away from home. Cheteshwar supported him ably with an uncharacteristic innings, scoring freely and getting his vintage square cuts out. The visitors are 270/3, and it will be fascinating to see what target they set.
The play went uninterrupted yesterday as expected but for bad light affecting the last hour. Today is expected to be better with a lesser amount of sky cover and, as a result, temperatures inching towards mid-twenties by afternoon. There is a small chance of rain in the evening session. Winds will remain light and humidity in a comfortable range setting up the stage for a keen struggle between the bat and the ball.
Poor light forced early stumps on Day 3. Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja will resume India’s batting on Day 4, leading England by 171 runs. India made the most of the batting deck, as Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara put up a 150-run partnership. Ollie Robinson removed both of them in the same over with the new cherry.
Sharma was caught in the deep square leg for 127 as he attempted a pull shot, while Pujara was caught in the slips for 61. Rohit scored his first Test century outside India by slamming a huge six over long-on off Moeen Ali.
KL Rahul looked good again but fell four runs short of his half-century as he was caught behind by James Anderson. Rahul and Rohit began Day 3 on a confident note, navigating the opening hour with ease to help India get off to a great start in their second innings, putting up 83 runs.
