Jonny Bairstow lost his wicket to Mohammed Shami on 106 runs on Sunday before Stuart Broad got dismissed by Siraj. Bairstow had earlier helped England bounce back from a precarious state of 83/5. He along with Stokes had stitched a 66-run partnership for the sixth wicket before adding 92 runs for the seventh wicket with Sam Billings.

England skipper Ben Stokes struck a timely blow as India lost the wicket Virat Kohli in their second innings on Day 3. Kohli was batting on 20 before a short-pitched delivery did the trick for Stokes. India were three wickets down, but their lead crossed the 200-run mark. Stuart Broad had earlier dismissed Hanuma Vihari shortly after Tea, while James Anderson had earlier got the better of Shubman Gill.

India finished Day 3 with the score of 125 at the expense of three wickets. Cheteshwar Pujara remains at the crease after he amassed an incredible half-century, while Rishabh Pant, who scored a ton in the first innings is heading strong with 30* at the crease.
