Coming back to the Test match, India is miles ahead as they now have a lead of 465 runs. Early on day 3, England picked quick wickets and it seemed as if India will bundle out quickly in their second innings. However, captain Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin showed their class and took India out of trouble.
The Indian captain after failing in the first innings looked determine to score runs on a raging turner. He did exactly that as he notched up his 25th half-century in Test cricket. Kohli was eventually dismissed for 62 but Ashwin carried on and smashed his 5th Test match century. India is currently enjoying themselves with the bat in the third session on day 3. England will have to bat out of their skins if they want to reach anywhere close to the target set by team India.
