Poms need miracle as Kohli puts India in charge

India vs England 3rd Test When And Where To Watch Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

India resumed on 124-2, already 292 runs in front, with Pujara 33 not out and Kohli unbeaten on eight.

Earlier, Kohli succeeded where he had narrowly failed in the first innings by scoring a century to underline his side's dominant position on the third day.

England badly needed a gritty innings from one of their top order but their biggest hope disappeared when captain Joe Root departed for 13 when his thick edge off Jaspit Bumrah brilliantly caught by Rahul.

England lead the five-match series 2-0.

After dominating the first two days, India's batsmen were intent on putting England out of trhe match and they achieved this thanks to Kohli's 103. "I like the way he plays the game it's fantastic to see", he said. Kohli shared a partnership of 113 runs with Cheteshwar Pujara on the third wicket where Pujara was at 72 runs where he faced 208 balls.

In Ishant's next over, England lost Cook.

England's faint chances of avoiding defeat in Nottingham were hit during the first session of the day when wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow broke a bone in the middle finger of his left hand attempting to take a catch.

"In county cricket I thought I was batting well but didn't score too many", he told Sky Sports. "That comes down to two things concentration not being good enough, or confidence".

Kohli's new partner was Ajinkya Rahane, reprising a partnership which had accrued 159 in the first innings. Kohli escaped extremely luckily off James Anderson's bowling when Keaton Jennings missed the ball at gully when Kohli edged on 93*.

Kohli (54), with only five fours to his partner's seven, was nonetheless operating at a much quicker tempo and reached his second 50 of the match in 82 balls.

"Although we are a long way behind", England assistant coach Paul Farbrace said, "we showed real effort and it was important not to lose any wickets this evening".

"He's a high-quality player, and has shown he's learned a lot on this tour alone".

Pandya, now starring with the bat, extended India's lead to 500 with a straight six off leg-spinner Adil Rashid and he had made a run-a-ball 52 not out, also including seven fours, when Kohli finally called a halt.

"When I was injured I was working on my fitness, my training schedules", added the 24-year-old, playing just his fourth Test following a debut against South Africa in Cape Town in January. However, Kohli and Pujara had different plans.

Struggling at 32/2, skipper Joe Root (13) along with rookie batsman Ollie Pope (16), did well to battle out the initial fury from the Indian pacers, who by now had their tails up. The Indian team had figured out Woakes' weakness against the short ball and after Hardik Pandya exploited it in the first innings, it was Bumrah's turn to do the same.
