The lack of contributions has hurt both sides as the low-scoring series has seen only three centuries so far.
Hardik Pandya silenced his critics with a stupendous performance with both bat and ball and it took a Virat Kohli special to take the Man of the Match award away from him. The home side left out an in-form Sam Curran for Ben Stokes and will hope that the all-rounder comes good for them to seal the series.
India showed they can step up their game under pressure and at Southampton, they must, if they are to stay alive in the series.
