17:02 (IST)

After 74 overs,India 257/6 ( Washington Sundar 33 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Stumps, Day 3!

Turn and bounce for Leach on the fifth ball of the last over of the day went for four byes. Was not his day today.

India go back to dressing room at 257/6. Top class effort from Sundar and Ashwin. They have forged a 32-run stand off 104 balls. India's top order have a lot of talking and thinking to do. The match still tilted in favour of the visitors. Tomorrow, India need to bat long and England would obviously be looking for remaining four wickets. 

That's it from us today as well. See you tomorrow again at 7.30 am. For now, good bye and take care.

16:58 (IST)

After 73 overs,India 253/6 ( Washington Sundar 33 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Archer comes back on for probably only the last time today. Single off the first ball. And then Ashwin blocks and blocks and leaves. .

16:52 (IST)

After 72 overs,India 252/6 ( Washington Sundar 32 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Terrific shot from Sundar at the start of the over. Very confident out there the young man. He is showing great maturity in dealing with this situation. One off the second ball and then Ashwin blocks all remaining balls. 

16:49 (IST)
four

FOUR! Leach draws Sundar forward but the batsman does well and hits on the up for four runs on the off side.

16:48 (IST)

After 71 overs,India 247/6 ( Washington Sundar 27 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Bess continues. Ashwin happy to block him. He came down the track to play an off drive for no run. Then adopted more safe approach to tackle the off spin. A maiden over.

16:45 (IST)

After 70 overs,India 247/6 ( Washington Sundar 27 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Jofra drops a catch running back at long on. Sundar played one in the air, another no-look shot, but this time did not connect, ball went high up in the air, Jofra gave the chase but never reached to it. It seems the plan is to play an over each till stumps as Sundar had an easy run on the leg side but did not take it while Ashwin was half way there. 

16:41 (IST)

After 69 overs,India 245/6 ( Washington Sundar 25 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Leach continues. Eight overs left or about 20 minutes, whichever happens first. Ashwin and Sundar continue to negate the last phase of day's play. Just 1 off the over.

16:37 (IST)

After 68 overs,India 244/6 ( Washington Sundar 24 , Ravichandran Ashwin 8)

Sundar playing brilliantly. He is carrying on the good batting form from Gabba. Still early days for him in this innings but has looked very good. Ashwin solid in the middle as well. Remember, both Chennai boys. Must play knock of their lives here to save India.

16:34 (IST)

After 67 overs,India 242/6 ( Washington Sundar 23 , Ravichandran Ashwin 7)

Stokes continues. Sundar played one of the best shots of the day with that cover drive coming effortlessly from his bat off Stokes. Five off the over.

16:33 (IST)
four

FOUR! Beautifully driven by Sundar for four runs through the covers off Stokes

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 1st Test Live Updates: India go back to dressing room at 257/6. Top class effort from Sundar and Ashwin. They have forged a 32-run stand off 104 balls. India's top order have a lot of talking and thinking to do. The match still tilted in favour of the visitors. Tomorrow, India need to bat long and England would obviously be looking for remaining six wickets.

Day 2 report: Joe Root scored 218 to become the first player to hit a double century in his 100th Test as England stormed past 550 in the opening Test against India on Saturday.

The captain, who resumed on his overnight 128, hit a big six to pass 200 before departing in the final session in Chennai.

Indian bowlers came back with four wickets in the evening session to check England's surge. The tourists ended the second day on 555 for eight. Dom Bess (28) and Jack Leach (6) were batting.

Root, who expertly kept India's spinners at bay in his 377-ball marathon, extended his golden run that followed match-winning scores of 228 and 186 against Sri Lanka in Tests last month. He has now hit five Test double centuries.

His remarkable feat came after a quickfire 82 from Ben Stokes. The pair put on 124 for the fourth wicket on a pitch made for batting.

"Root's in incredible form. To play like that in alien conditions is incredible," Stokes said.

"It's a bit frightening when you're at the other end and he makes it look so easy," he said of his captain.

Left-hander Stokes hit his 23rd Test half-century—with 10 fours and three sixes—before falling to Shahbaz Nadeem's left-arm spin.

Root and Ollie Pope then got going to frustrate the Indian bowlers before Ravichandran Ashwin broke through.

Ashwin trapped Pope lbw for 34 and Nadeem got Root's prized scalp with a delivery that straightened up to hit the batsman's pad.

Root reviewed the call but replays showed the ball would have hit leg stump. India skipper Virat Kohli shook hands with his opposite number as he walked back to the pavilion.

Jos Buttler, playing his 50th Test, tried to take on the bowling with a few attacking shots but Sharma bowled him.

Sharma struck again next ball to bowl Jofra Archer for nought. Sharma reached 299 Test wickets in his 98th match.

Bess, who was dropped on 19 as Rohit Sharma spilled an easy chance at mid-wicket off Washington Sundar, and Leach, took the team to the close, adding 30 more runs.

Paceman Jasprit Bumrah, Ashwin and Nadeem have also claimed two wickets each after England elected to bat first on Friday.

England and India will play four Tests in the series.
