IND vs ENG: Virat Kohli remains unbeaten on 43, team needs 84 more runs for win
Pacer Ishant Sharma produced a brilliant spell that saw him take three quick wickets after off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin dented the hosts with two wickets within the first hours of play
Chasing 194 to win the first cricket Test against England, India were 110 for five at stumps on day three, here today.
Pacer Ishant Sharma took five wickets and spinner R Ashwin scalped three batsmen as India bowled out England for 180 in their second innings. Sam Curran, with his 63-run knock, led a stunning rearguard fight to help the hosts extend their lead to 193 after the hosts were down 87 for seven at one stage.
In a shaky start, India lost five batsmen before skipper Virat Kohli (43) and Dinesh Karthik (18) combined for a crucial unbeaten sixth-wicket partnership. If India manage to overhaul the target, it will be their only seventh Test win on the England soil.
