After getting outplayed on the first two days of the ongoing third Test against England, Team India bounced back on Day 3. The visitors picked up England’s remaining two wickets quite early to bundle out the hosts for 432 runs, conceding a lead of 354 runs.

India lost opener KL Rahul early, but Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara showcased exceptional defensive skills to stand tall against England’s bowling in cloudy conditions. Rohit smashed a classy half-century and looked set to cruise through, but an inswinger from Ollie Robinson ended his innings for 59 runs.

After Rohit’s dismissal, Pujara and Indian captain Virat Kohli steadied the innings and added crucial runs in the final session to reduce the deficit. Pujara scored his second fifty of the series and kept the scoreboard ticking. The pair took India to 215/2 after 80 overs, still trailing by 139 runs, with Pujara batting on 91 and Kohli on 45, not out. The duo has put together an unbeaten stand of 99 runs for the third wicket.

For England, Robinson picked up a wicket for 40 runs in 18 overs with 4 maidens. Similarly, Craig Overton bagged a scalp for 35 runs in 17 overs, including six maidens.
