Ravindra Jadeja anchored India's first innings after the dismissal of Virat Kohli. Jadeja, who shared a 97-run stand with R Ashwin, scored his career-best 90 from 170 balls which included 10 fours and a six. The left-handed batsman celebrated his half-century by the familiar swordsman celebration. However, he missed out on a Test ton as he found Chris Woakes at the long-on boundary. Jadeja also eclipsed his previous best of 68 against the same opposition at Lord's in 2014. (Source: PTI)
Jayant Yadav, playing his only second Test match, showed his batting prowess once again as he completed his maiden half-century in 132 balls. Jayant also shared a 80-run 8th wicket partnership with Ravindra Jadeja, as the duo helped the hosts build 134-run lead. (Source: PTI)
R Ashwin continued his impressive form with the ball as he cameback chipping England's three wickets. Ashwin removed Alastair Cook (12), Moeen Ali (5) and Ben Stokes (5) as India tightened the noose around England. Indian all-rounder also scored 72 runs with 11 boundaries, and had a 97-run partnership with Ravindra Jadeja.
Visitors were in deep trouble on Day 3 and the dibacle continued after Jonny Bairstow was caught behind off Jayant Yadav, with Parthiv Patel holding a low catch.
