India produced a solid display of batting with KL Rahul and Parthiv Patel with the latter pushed into open after keeping for 150 overs due to an injury to Murali Vijay. The duo then remained unphased to take the home side to 60/0 at stumps and stand 417 runs behind England’s first innings total.
The visitors didn’t enjoy the best start to the day’s proceedings losing three wickets for 37 runs including that of centurion Moeen Ali. But the lower order came through with debutant Liam Dawson scoring a half century. He was ably supported by Adil Rashid as they put together 108 runs.

STAT ALERT: Rahul/Parthiv is the 7th different opening pair in this series (4 by India, 3 by Eng) – the most in a series this millennium.
