India started day three on 174-6, still trailing by 158 runs.

Jadeja along with debutant Vihari batted cautiously to see through the first few of overs.

Vihari reached his maiden fifty and soon fell to Moeen Ali [VIDEO]. The partnership between Jadeja and Vihari had added 77 runs to the Indian total and brought the deficit to less than 100 runs.

Jadeja hung in there with the tailenders as he kept scoring briskly to put the pressure back on England. After some brilliant shots, Jadeja tried to take a single off the last ball of the over to keep the strike in the next over, but Jasprit Bumrah got run out in the process.

India folded for 292 runs in their first innings with Jadeja top-scoring with an unbeaten knock of 86 runs.

England found themselves at a proper position nevertheless as they got a lead of 40 runs in the first innings. Each of England's bowlers got a wicket at least. Stokes, Anderson, and Ali picked up two wickets each while Rashid, Curran, and Broad got a wicket each.

Cook unbeaten on 46

After a nervy start to their second innings, England seem to move along comfortably. But a beautiful ball from Mohammad Shami found Keaton Jennings' stumps as England's lead was closing in on 70 runs.

Ali batted well with Alastair Cook to keep the scoreboard ticking. Jadeja found himself once again in the game as he picked up the wicket of Ali. At 62-2, Joe Root walked into bat to give company to Cook.

The pair quickly brought up a 50-run partnership and guided England to the end of day's play. At stumps on day three, the hosts had put on 114 runs for the loss of two wickets.

The overall lead currently stands at 154 runs, and the duo of Cook-Root will eye to extend that when they resume batting on day four. Cook, who is playing his last Test innings, stayed unbeaten on 46 runs while Root was unbeaten on 29 runs.

The day four of the fifth and the final Test begins on Monday, September 10, 2018, at 11:00 AM BST, 3:30 PM IST.
