The ball is turning square and India’s lead is nearing 250. India would look to bat another two sessions and add 150 runs to their score. That would mean that England would be chasing a target of around 400 which is a mammoth task on this surface. Earlier, it was a magnificent hundred from Rohit Sharma that helped India post a solid total of 329. Sharma was well supported by Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant who fetched themselves impressive half centuries.
