England posted 400 in their first innings.

India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1-11) dismissed Jennings in the very first over of England's second innings to start their slide.

Their grief deepened when left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja (2-58) accounted for both Cook and Moeen Ali to leave India in a very strong position.
