India set England a mountain to climb

India set England a mountain to climb

After dominating the first two days, India's batsmen were intent on putting England out of trhe match and they achieved this thanks to Kohli's 103. England need another 437 runs for an improbable victory.

Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings at least held their nerve to reach 23 without loss in nine overs of discomfort under lights up to stumps, in pursuit of a mammoth 521 to win.

The evening session started off in much the same way as the afternoon session had finished - with Buttler and Stokes looking at ease at the crease and untroubled by anything the India attack threw at them.

If Ishant scalped two wickets more then he will break the record of Indian former skipper Kapil Dev for dismissing opposition for the most number of times. There was no wicket to pick for Adil Rashid against the run of play in the second half of the session, when Root perhaps hoped the introduction of Rashid would add an element of risk to his opposite number's batting mindset.

India have set a big target in front of the home team to win this Test and seal the series.

Pujara and Kohli kicked on, while the hosts lost wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow to injury as he took a blow to his left hand after misjudging a James Anderson delivery.

An x-ray later revealed Bairstow had suffered a small fracture to his left middle finger. With Rahul Dravid as the captain, India managed to win the 3-match series by a margin of 1-0, with the 1st and last test ending in a draw, with India winning the battle in the 2nd game.

Their chief tormentor was paceman Pandya who took five for 28 in just six overs, the best figures of his test career, including a wicket with his first ball, as England conceded a first-innings deficit of 168.

In the list of most centuries by Indian batsmen in SENA countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia) in Tests, Kohli is now only behind the great Sachin Tendulkar.

Shortly beforehand, as if to confirm England were shredded by their miserable experience, Jennings let a straightforward gully chance slip through his fingers as Kohli moved from 93 to 97 with a thick edge on a drive at Anderson.

India captain Virat Kohli fell three runs short of another century on day one of the third Test against England.

From 32-2, Joe Root (13) and Olliver Pope (16) put on 30 runs for the third wicket. Kohli brought up his 23rd ton in 191 balls.

"He's a high-quality player, and has shown he's learned a lot on this tour alone.

Kohli scored 103 runs which came off 197 balls with 10 breathtaking boundaries.

Bairstow went for a golden duck as a rampant spell of bowling saw Bumrah (5-85) to the fore, fit again after missing the first two matches and thriving with the new ball after tea to move India to the brink.
