With 5 wickets in hand, Virat Kohli would’ve mentally set a lead of 200-250 runs before making a declaration and straight away build pressure on England, with a day to spare. At tea break, the pair of Karun Nair and R Ashwin have put India in a position from where either one can expect another Indian victory or a draw. India didn’t lose a single wicket in the post-lunch session, as the Nair-Ashwin pair added 147 unbeaten runs for the 6th wicket. India lost Murali Vijay for 29, when the score was 435 runs.

The English bowlers have toiled hard for a wicket but have remained largely ineffective. R Ashwin once again has contributed with bat and has proved his mettle as an all-rounder. Having gone past another half-century, he has partnered well with Karun Nair as the duo have not only taken India to a strong position but also burst the balloon of English’s supporters of an outward chance of a consolation win.
