England on top, India fight to save 3rd Test

Kolkata, December 08:

India's famed batting line-up failed to deliver as the team was left staring at yet another huge defeat after being reduced to 145 for six at tea on the fourth day of the third cricket Test against England here today.

Given the situation, the visiting England team looks well on course to taking an unassailable 2-1 series lead.

The picture changed rapidly for India post lunch as from a promising 86 for no loss, they lost six wickets with yet another innings defeat looming large.

Virat Kohli, after being dropped at 4, was unbeaten on 19, while R Ashwin was batting on eight at the tea break as India were still 62 runs behind.
Earlier in the morning, India restricted England's first innings lead to 207, bowling the visitors out for 523 scalping four wickets in 4.3 overs with England managing to add just 14 runs to their overnight total.

India's promising start to their second innings, having conceded a 207-run lead, was undone when Sehwag (49) got out off the first ball after lunch.

Graeme Swann got one to rip back through Sehwag's gate taking the top of the off stump to break the opening partnership for 86.

What followed was another dismissal as Gautam Gambhir once again helped England in a run-out.

Cheteshwar Pujara (8) became the victim this time when the leading Indian run-getter of the series fell short of the crease going in for a non-existent run as Ian Bell hit the stumps directly from short leg.
