18:37 (IST)

India vs England live score, England 81 all out.Target for India - 49! Washington Sundar gets the last batsman - James Anderson - out caught behind. And that's a wrap to the innings. Surely, India's match this. Or are we in for a twist?

Praise from another offspinner

18:06 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 68-7: WICKET: Jofra Archer lbw Ashwin. 400 Test wickets for Ashwin! Second fastest to 400 after Muttiah Muralitharan! Archer looks to sweep but that's too full, hit in front. Reviews it in vain. Legendary stuff from Ashwin.

17:31 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 46-3: Huge moment in the game as Joe Root is given out lbw to Axar Patel, but he reviews it after some deliberation. Replays show bat and pad close together, and after numerous angles, the third umpire says it hit bat. Not sure it was conclusive, so that's a tricky decision that went against India.

17:21 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 34-3: As expected, Ben Stokes is taking on the bowlers. Ashwin in particular. A half chance was there when he top edged a slog, but it went just behind Axar Patel at mid on. England into the lead

India vs England Highlights, 3rd Test at Motera, Day 2: Ind Beat Eng by 10 Wickets; Lead Series 2-1

India vs England Live Score, 3rd Test at Motera, Day 2: India vs England live score, India WIN!: Rohit Sharma steps out and hits this one for a gigantic SIX. And this game is over in a jiffy. Indian openers just walked in after Dinner and finished things off with ease. India now lead the four match series 2-1.

If it was Ravichandran Ashwin’s turn to shine at his home ground then it was Axar’s at the newly-built Motera Stadium. Spinners continued to rule the roost on the opening day of the third Test and it was hard to believe that both the teams had traveled 1800 KMs in between. Yes the conditions were different (this one being a day-nighter and played with pink-ball) but the pitch behaved very similar to Chepauk with both the spinners finding ample turn and bounce. India dropped Kuldeep Yadav and replaced him with Washington Sundar but such clinical were Axar and Ashwin that the hosts never felt the need to bring him on.

On a pitch that was offering so much turn, Axar managed to walk through the English line up with the one that didn’t turn. As many as three English batsman: Jonny Bairstow, Zack Crawley and Ollie Pope were out playing for the turn and were found wanting. After Tea, England lost wickets in a flurry. Six wickets came in just 32 runs, and Axar was the biggest gainer from this mediocre display. England were all out for 112.

India came out to bat in the twilight zone and safely negotiated the initial overs. The first over from Jimmy Anderson was as good as it can get. Straight and full, going away. Rohit Sharma didn’t want to take a chance and it ended up being a maiden. But his fellow opener Shubman Gill had no such intentions, he was out playing a pull shot to Stuart Broad. After Pujara was dismissed cheaply, Rohit along with skipper Virat Kohli stitched a 64 run stand for the third wicket to restore normalcy. Rohit completed a solid half-century and his duel with Jofra Archer was too good to ignore. He pulled him once and then played a solid straight drive off the very next ball to show that he is in complete control. Late in the day, Jack Leach rattled Kohli’s stumps with the score reading 98/3. But despite this, India look set to dominate proceedings in the afternoon session when the match resumes tomorrow.
