Young Sam Curran swings England back into the game

England started the day at 285 for 9 but Mohammad Shami quickly removed Sam Curran for 24 runs.

India got a good start with the bat as the openers quickly posted a partnership of 50 runs.

Left-arm seamer Curran then picked up three quick wickets of Shikhar Dhawan (26 runs), Murali Vijay (20 runs), and KL Rahul (4 runs) in the space of eight balls to rock India back.

Ben Stokes came into the action a bit later as he picked up two back to back wickets of Ajinkya Rahane (15 runs) and Dinesh Karthik (0 runs). India was in trouble at 100 for 5 and still 187 runs behind England's total.

Virat Kohli, the lone wolf

While wickets kept on falling at one end, Kohli kept building his innings at another. Hardik Pandya (22 runs) and Ravichandran Ashwin (10 runs) hanged around with him for a while, but couldn't produce a big score. As Shami (2 runs) got out, India was at 182-8 and staring at a huge deficit in the first innings.

This is when Kohli took complete control of things.

He faced far more balls than his companions, Umesh Yadav (1 run) and Ishant Sharma (5 runs), as he kept taking the score forward with some fearless yet smart batting. Finally, when the Indian skipper got for 149 runs, the team's total had reached 274, just 13 runs less than England's first innings total.

England came out to bat for just 4 overs. Ashwin managed to get Alastair Cook out for a duck as the hosts ended the day at 9 for 1, leading by 22 runs. For England, Curran was a star with the ball as he picked up 4 for 74. He was well supported by Anderson, Stokes, and Adil Rashid as the trio picked up two wickets each.
