22:14 (IST)

Ashwin-Axar spin partnership, Zak Crawley's early aggressive approach and later Jack Leach getting rid of main man Virat Kohli. The opening night of the pink-ball Test produced a lot of series-defining moments, moments that could even decide the two teams' fate of reaching the World Test Championship final. Thursday promises to be an engrossing day of Test cricket, with the match likely to get even more intense. So, do join us at 12.30 PM tomorrow for all the build up. Until then, it's goodbye and good night!

India 99-3 after 33 overs (Rahane 1*, Rohit 57*)

STUMPS! Leach provided arguably England's big breakthrough in the game when he saw off Virat Kohli for 27 in the night's final over, but altogether, India would be satisfied with how the opening night panned out. England were bowled out for 112, and India are 99-3, trailing by 13 runs. Just that one run from new batsman Rahane came off the final over, with in-form Rohit Sharma (57*) looking quite promising.

OUT! Leach gets his man Kohli! It's a length ball from Leach, and Kohli is playing for the turn, but the ball straightens and skids as Kohli eventually mistimes the shot. Kohli b Jack Leach 27

21:57 (IST)

India 98-2 after 32 overs (Kohli 27*, Rohit 57*)

Archer resumes. Rohit brings up his ninth boundary by flicking through the midwicket region. Seven runs come off it with Kohli picking the remaining three runs this over.

FOUR! Full-pitched ball from Archer on the pads and Rohit swiftly flicks through midwicket region. 

21:53 (IST)

India 91-2 after 31 overs (Rohit 53*, Kohli 24*)

Leach delivers brilliant turn and bounce to beat Rohit on the outside edge, and Rohit mistimes the shot as the ball races to Foakes behind the wickets. He appeals for a stumping, but TV replay confirms he has made his ground. Maiden over.

21:46 (IST)

India 91-2 after 30 overs (Rohit 53*, Kohli 24*)

Anderson returns. Huge miss for England as Kohli is dropped by Pope at gully! How much more unlucky could one get? Kohli opts to continue his defensive approach as Anderson earns another maiden over.

21:41 (IST)

India 91-2 after 29 overs (Kohli 24*, Rohit 53*)

Leach is back. Kohli plays the paddle sweep in the third ball of the over for a single, and is dropped by Pope at short-leg! Just two runs off the over.

21:37 (IST)

India 89-2 after 28 overs (Kohli 23*, Rohit 52*)

Anderson begins with a good length onto the stumps to Rohit, which is tucked away to mid-on. He picks up a single few balls later by nudging away to the leg-side. In the fifth ball, Kohli then follows it up with a boundary through point region. Five runs off it.

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 3rd Test Live Updates: STUMPS! Leach provided arguably England's big breakthrough in the game when he saw off Virat Kohli for 27 in the night's final over, but altogether, India would be satisfied with how the opening night panned out. England were bowled out for 112, and India are 99-3, trailing by 13 runs. Just that one run from new batsman Rahane came off the final over, with in-form Rohit Sharma (57*) looking quite promising.

Preview: India and England head into a crucial third Test starting Wednesday at the world's biggest cricket stadium with more than a series between two of the biggest rivals at stake, according to their pace spearheads Ishant Sharma and Jimmy Anderson.

With the four-match series tied at 1-1, both sides need a win in Ahmedabad to be able to keep alive their hopes of reaching the World Test Championship final against New Zealand.

India just need to win the series to get through, while England have to win by 3-1. A tied series would let Australia through.

The tension is rising in both camps who each registered a crushing win in the first two matches.

"We have got to win two Tests matches, it is as simple as it gets for us," said Anderson who took crucial wickets in England's 227 run win in the first game.

England have "put to bed the disappointment" of their 317-run defeat in Chennai last week, the 38-year-old added.

The team are "refreshed" and "we are excited that we have still got the opportunity to qualify for the Test championship and have still got the opportunity to beat India in India, which is something that not many teams do."

Ishant's Test ton

"I have just one thing on my mind," responded Sharma, India's 32-year-old veteran who will be in his 100th Test.

"That is to win the next Test, win the series and qualify for the World Test Championship," Sharma said.

"I have just one format to play and this is like a World Cup to me. So if we reach the Test championship final and win, so it's like winning an ICC World Cup."

Pace bowler Umesh Yadav has been added to India's squad for the final two Tests in Ahmedabad after he passed a fitness test following his recovery from a calf injury.

An intense atmosphere is certain at the 110,000 capacity Sardar Patel stadium that was used for a rally by US president Donald Trump last February.

Authorities have said more than 50,000 tickets will go on sale for the first cricket game to be played in the revamped ground.

The pink ball, LED lights instead of usual floodlights and the size of the ground add to the test of nerves, according to batsman Rohit Sharma.

"Whenever you play in a new stadium, that's always a challenge," said Sharma. "Getting used to the lights and the seats in the stadium, because its new seats so obviously it will be shiny."

India's last pink-ball outing ended in a disastrous show in Adelaide when Kohli's team were skittled out for their Test lowest of 36.

The hosts, who beat Bangladesh in under three days in their first day-night Test in Kolkata in 2019, are expected to stick largely to their winning side from Chennai.

Joe Root's England though will be forced to make changes because of their rotation policy.

Moeen Ali headed back home after the second Test loss when he was England's standout performer with eight wickets and a quickfire 43 with the bat.

Off-spinner Dom Bess is expected to get his place back and fast bowler Anderson should return.

"I believe this series is absolutely on a knife-edge," former England spinner Graeme Swann said.

"It is a brilliant place for England to be, and they've got a great chance to go ahead once more. I'm full of optimism going into this game, mainly due to Jimmy coming back.

"He was irrepressible in the first match, and he just keeps defying the odds and gets better and better."

Returning batsman Jonny Bairstow and fast bowler Mark Wood will also be in contention, while Jofra Archer, who missed the second Test with an elbow problem, is expected to make the team.

"Always nice to be in competition for the squad," said a fit-again Archer.

The England paceman said he was looking forward to playing on the new "beautiful" ground in front of the crowd.
