Live Cricket Score, India vs England, 3rd Test, Day 4: Jasprit Bumrah celebrates a dismissal

India vs England, Highlights, 3rd Test Day 4 at Trent Bridge:

Jasprit Bumrah produced a hostile spell of fast bowling to put India on brink of a comprehensive victory before the final England pair delayed the inevitable on an engrossing fourth day of the third Test. What a final session have we witnessed. A session of two halfs to be honest. One dominated by the English side, where Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes continued from where they left off in the second session. The two added a massive 169-run stand with the right-hander bringing up his maiden ton. Stokes supported him really well and looked solid through out. The two may have revived some hopes in the English camp but the star of today, Jasprit Bumrah had different ideas. (SCORECARD)

INDIA VS ENGLAND, 3RD TEST, DAY 4 HIGHLIGHTS FROM NOTTINGHAM:

23.38 IST: England 161 & 311/9 at stumps against India (329, 352/7d). India need 1 wicket to win in Nottingham. Bumrah 5/85, Buttler 106, Stokes 62.

23.32 IST: A review has been taken. Rashid is the man in question. Looks to be going down the leg side.

23.30 IST: Breaking - Stuart Broad has been fined 15 percent of his match fee for his sendoff to Rishabh Pant.

23.24 IST: FOUR! Glorious. Rashid has been very watchful in this innings. He has played some extravagant shots and this one right up there.

23.18 IST: FOUR! Top edge but safe! Another short ball for England's premier bowler. He ducks under it but fails to get his bat down. The ball goes off the splice and over the keeper for a boundary.

23.13 IST: James Anderson is the last man in.

23.12 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Broad for 20. Gone, this time he is gone. Finally the 5-fer Bumrah was waiting for, his second in this format. What a performance from the comeback man. He has ran through England's lower-order with the second new ball ever so easily. Coming to the ball, it was a length ball in line of the stump. The angle square's Broad up and the edge of his willow is found. Rahul takes the catch at second slip to complete the formalities. England are 9 down now and a silent send off for Broad as well.  England 161 & 291/9, need 230 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

23.00 IST: Well that should have been stumps but since England are 8 down an extra half an hour has been claimed.

22.59 IST: Ashwin is on.

22.57 IST: FOUR! Full, wide and punished. Kohli isn't amused, not a bit. Broad does well to connect to the ball with an angled bat and gets it through backward point for a boundary.  ENG 287/8 in 93 overs.

22.55 IST: FOUR! Another short ball and Broad backs away from his crease and pulls it hard. The ball races to the square leg fence for consecutive boundaries. 3000 runs up for Stuart Broad in Test cricket.

22.53 IST: FOUR! Short ball, a rib tickler, Broad sways and plays it fine to the boundary. Runs are coming thick and fast at the moment.

22.49 IST: Ishant Sharma is brought back to have a go.

22.48 IST: Adil Rashid Dropped! A sharp chance but it should have been grabbed! Rashid is living a life of a cat here. Second reprieve for him. This is full and outside off, swinging away. Rashid goes after it but gets an outside edge. It flies to third slip, Virat Kohli there gets two hands to it but spills it.

22.41 IST: FOUR! What. A. Shot. Rashid flicks the full ball on his pads to square leg fence with utter disdain. He has played some exquisite shots here in his little innings as of now.

22.37 IST: SIX! Rashid is swinging his way out of trouble. HE gets a short ball in line of the stumps, Rashid pulls it and gets a top edge. The ball sails into the fine leg fence for a maximum. ENG 264/8 in 88.5 overs.

22.36 IST: FOUR! Shortish around off, Rashid again stays on the leg side of the ball and carcasses it through covers for a boundary.

22.34 IST: FOUR! Punched and punched handsomely. Rashid lines up the shortish ball outside his off pole and punches it through covers. The ball races away to the fence. Bumrah need calm himself down and get back to his normal line and length.

22.32 IST: FOUR Leg Byes! And Rashid rubs salt in his wounds. He gets a short of a length ball on the hips, he looks to clip it fine the ball goes off his thigh pad to the boundary.

22.30 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Adil Rashid, It's a No Ball. Dear me, Bumrah denies himself a 5-fer. He bowls a beauty around off, on a length and manages to induce Rashid's outside edge. Kohli took a sharp catch in the slip cordon. Everyone started to celebrate. Rashid starts to walk back but the umpire says hang on! He checks the no ball. The giant screen shows he did not had anything behind the popping crease. Rashid survives to fight another day or over?

22.26 IST: A no ball is being checked. Rashid is caught behind but the umpire is doubtful about Bumrah's front foot. It looks so close.

22.22 IST: Stuart Broad is the new man in.

22.21 IST: OUT! Hardik Pandya removes Stokes for 62. They are now falling like a pack of cards! From 231 for 5, they are now 241 for 8. India only two wickets away. Ben Stokes walks back after playing a gritty knock. The second new ball has worked wonders for the Indians here. Hardik Pandya, the hero of the first innings, gets his first. Just like the last delivery, he makes excellent use of the angle and lands it around off, this one slants away. Stokes is squared up as he tries to defend, the ball takes the outside edge and goes towards second slip who makes no mistake. Who is the fielder there? You probably must have guessed it right. KL RAHUL, takes his third catch. The Indians are pumped up and they now can surely sniff a victory today, 13 overs to go. England 161 & 241/8, need 280 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

22.16 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Woakes for 4. Gone! Another one bites the dust. Bumrah is on fire. Unplayable this. He digs in a short bat, targeting the grille of Woakes. Pandya mentioned in an interview that Woakes has a problem with the short ball and Bumrah kept that in his mind. He puts Woakes in a tangle who ducks but does not get his bat out of the way. The ball kisses his gloves and Pant takes a jumping catch behind. England are 7 down now. England 161 & 241/7, need 280 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.  

22.10 IST: FOUR! Wrong line! Down the leg side and Stokes tickles it fine down the leg side.

22.07 IST: FOUR! Woakes survives. Not only survives, he clips it through mid-wicket for a boundary. So, two wickets follows by a boundary. What next?

22.05 IST: Chris Woakes is in. A short leg is in place for him.

22.04 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Bairstow for 0. Two in two. Are you kidding me? What a peach to bowl to a new batsman. This is unplayable. Bairstow has no chance of getting any bat to it. WOW! Bumrah is spitting fire here. He lands with one around off and gets it to straighten from the length. Bairstow plays the line but the ball goes past his outside edge and rattles the off pole. What a jaffa! England, all of a sudden, six down in successive deliveries and they are still 290 runs behind. Hat trick ball coming up! England 161 & 231/6, need 290 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

22.03 IST: Injured Jonny Bairstow walks in to bat.

22.02 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Buttler for 106. It's out! Buttler walks after a magnificent innings. He has managed to keep the Indian bowlers at bay along with Stokes with a record breaking 169-run partnership. Coming to the ball - it was full around off, and Buttler left it. That was his undoing. The ball kept on coming with the and hit him on his knee roll. Bumrah started celebrating straightaway and the umpire raises his finger without any doubt in his mind. Buttler goes for a desperate review. The replays rolls in. It is just clipping the stumps and that's all Bumrah and India need. A breakthrough after what feel like ages. Can they run through the lower-order now? England 161 & 231/5, need 290 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

21.55 IST: Four Leg Byes! Highest fourth innings partnership for 5th wicket for England. Swing but wrong line. It pitches on middle and swings further down the leg side. The ball clips the pad on the way to the fine leg fence for boundary. The umpire signals a leg bye.

21.49 IST: Jasprit Bumrah is back on.

21.48 IST: The second new ball has been taken. India would hope for a change of fortunes with the new cherry.

21.45 IST: Drinks! New ball is available now. A perfect time for England as they have two set batsmen to see it out, in case it is taken. India will be hoping that the new cherry could bring them some wickets. Let us see if they do take it. Hang around, we will be back in a short while.

21.36 IST: Hardik Pandya is back on.

21.31 IST: Jos Buttler hits maiden Test century off 152 balls. FOUR! And he gets there in style! Maiden ton in Tests for Jos Buttler and what a time to get it. A special knock by a special player. Justifying his selection in the team. Shami provides a gift to help him get to that milestone. On the pads, Buttler flicks it through square leg and the ball races away. He takes his helmet off, raises his bat and soaks the applause from the crowd and his teammates. He should now try and make it a daddy one, probably a double hundred.  England 161 & 220/4, need 301 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

21.30 IST: FOUR! HAMMERED! A bumper on middle, Buttler goes back and pulls it all along the ground and into the backward square leg fence. 99 he moves onto. 2 more balls in this over to get to his ton.

21.28 IST: FOUR! On the pads, wrong line and Shami pays the price. He is flicked through backward square leg and the ball reaches the fence in no time. He moves onto 95 and the partnership is now 150.

21.22 IST: FOUR! Shami errs in line and Buttler makes him pay. A full ball on the pads, Buttler flicks it and the ball races to the mid-wicket fence.

21.15 IST: FIFTY! Ben Stokes hits his 14th Test half-century off 147 balls. Ishant Sharma to Ben Stokes, 2 runs. Slowest fifty for Stokes but what just happened here? It was a full toss, a touch too high for Stokes' liking. He still manages to get bat on it to work it through mid-wicket. He falls on the ground first and then gets up to take a brace. It's his 14th half-century in Tests, a much-needed one for him and England.  England 161 & 201/4, need 320 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

20.59 IST: Ashwin is back on.

20.50 IST: FOUR! Through the off side this time but not convincing. Length around off, Buttler tries to defend but gets an outside edge through the vacant slip cordon for a boundary.

20.48 IST: FOUR! Spoils a very good over! On the pads, Buttler says thank you so much as he flicks it fine through the leg side.

20.43 IST: Former India opener and IndiaTV cricket expert Virender Sehwag lauds Team India's comeback in Nottingham Test (Watch Video)

20.37 IST: FOUR! Short, wide and put away. Easy-peasy for Buttler. He goes back and slaps it through covers for a boundary.

20.35 IST: Ishant Sharma to bowl from the other end.

20.30 IST: We're back. The Indian team is in a huddle at the moment near the boundary line. Plenty of sunshine, should be good for batting. Another 37 overs left. We're not making any bold prediction now. Let's see how this session pans out.

20.14 IST: England 161 & 173/4 at Tea, need 348 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham. Buttler 67*, Stokes 42*. Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, 1 run. A swinging delivery again, full and on middle, Buttler leans across and flicks it through wide mid on for a single. 

20.12 IST: FOUR! Shami attempts another yorker, right idea but wrong execution. Ends up serving a juicy full toss around off, Buttler reaches out for it with his weight firmly on the back foot and drives it through covers for a boundary.

20.03 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to Jos Buttler, no run. Fires it on the stumps, Stokes keeps it out.  ENG 163/4 in 60 overs.

19.55 IST: Jos Buttler NOT OUT! Spot on, missing leg by a mile and a review goes down the drain. But that ball reverse swung. Full and on middle, it comes back in late. Buttler tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The players appeal but the umpire stays put. Kohli after a chat with his bowler takes the review. Time for the replays and it shows the ball to be missing leg.

19.53 IST: Another shout for LBW has been turned down. Buttler is the man in question this time. Slipping down leg I feel.

19.52 IST: Buttler and Stokes complete a much-needed 100-run partnership stand. Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, 3 runs. Uppish but safe! This also brings up the 100-run stand between the two. Excellent partnership this. Stokes drives this full ball through covers for three.

19.50 IST: Mohammed Shami is back on.

19.43 IST: FIFTY! Jos Buttler hits his 9th Test half-century off 93 balls. FOUR! Fifty for Jos Buttler and he gets there with a cracking shot. His 9th in this format. Full and outside off, Jos slams it through covers and the ball races away. He raises the bat to acknowledge the applause by the crowd. England would want him to continue.  England 161 & 154/4, need 367 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

19.41 IST: 150 up for England.

19.39 IST: Ben Stokes NOT OUT! Not enough as it is clipping the leg pole. Umpire's call it is. Ashwin floats it up on middle and leg. It pitches and straightens a touch. Stokes tries to defend but misses to get hit on the pads. The players appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Kohli after a chat signals the 'T'. Time for the replays and they show the ball to be kissing the leg stump.

19.37 IST: Review time! A huge shout for an LBW has been turned down and Kohli takes is upstairs. Stokes is the man in question. Has it straightened?

19.33 IST: FOUR! Slapped away! Short in length and wide outside off, Stokes spots the chance to free his arms and smashes it square of the wicket on the off side for a crackling boundary.  ENG 147/4 in 53.1 overs.

19.29 IST: FOUR! Lovely shot! This is tossed up on off, Buttler plants his front foot forward and hits it through covers. The ball races away.

19.24 IST: FOUR! Crunched! That made a cracking sound of the bat! Ashwin floats this up on off, Stokes goes down on one knee and nails the sweep through mid-wicket.  ENG 136/4 in 50.4 overs.

19.18 IST: Ben Stokes NOT OUT! Yes, it does hit the boot but then also bounces. Nevertheless, Ashwin is getting closer to breaking through here. He tosses this up on off, Stokes lunges and tries to defend. The ball seems to have bounced and then gone into the hands of silly point. The Indians feel it has hit the boot and they appeal. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that it has hit the ground before going into the hands of the fielder.

19.16 IST: Has that hit the boot or the ground? Stokes is not worried but the umpires have gone upstairs to check. Not out is the soft signal.

19.14 IST: FOUR! Very clever by Stokes! Sees this is pitched outside off, he walks across, goes down on one knee and paddles it very fine on the leg side for a boundary.  ENG 128/4 in 48.2 overs.

19.09 IST: A boundary to conclude the over. Jos Buttler EDGED AND ANOTHER FOUR! Buttler riding his luck again! Full and outside off, Buttler goes for the full-blooded drive but it takes the outside edge and goes through the vacant gully region.

19.02 IST: EDGY FOUR! Luck again going Buttler's way as he tries to clip this through the leg side. The ball takes the outside edge and bounces in front of the diving Pant, beats the first slip fielder and into the third man fence.

19.00 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Jos Buttler, no ball. Goes wide of the crease and bowls it on off, the batsman blocks it. Bumrah has overstepped.

18.59 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Jos Buttler, 2 runs. Up and over! A strange shot there. It was the slower ball outside off, Buttler showed white ball instincts there as he whacks it over mid-wicket. Not off the middle but gets a brace.

18.58 IST: Jasprit Bumrah is brought into the attack.

18.56 IST: Buttler and Stokes complete 50-run partnership for the fifth-wicket stand. Ravichandran Ashwin to Ben Stokes, 2 runs. Works it with the angle through mid-wicket and runs two. The 50-run stand is up between the two, an important one but they need to keep batting.

18.52 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin is into the attack.

18.44 IST: FOUR! Finds the gap this time and you just need not run for those. Full and on off, Buttler caresses it through covers. He moves to 27, how costly will that drop from Pant prove? ENG 106/4 in 42.2 overs.

18.39 IST: FOUR! Second boundary of the over! Not such a bad delivery, it was on a length and around off, Stokes leans into it and punches it right of the middle, beating the outstretched hand of Ishant and into the long on fence.

18.37 IST: FOUR! Poor ball and put away! On the pads, Ben Stokes is too good to miss out there. He flicks it through square leg and the ball races away.

18.32 IST: FOUR! A valiant effort by Jadeja but it goes in vain! Excellent timing by Buttler. He leans into the fuller ball and strokes it through covers. Jadeja hares after it, dives and tries to push it back in but is not able to do so.  ENG 92/4 in 39.5 overs.

* Shami after that fall is going off the field. Umesh Yadav is his substitute. India will hope it is nothing series with Ashwin already not full fit.

18.30 IST: Misfield and three extra runs! Ishant won't be happy as he loves bowling to left-handers and now Stokes is off strike. He bowls it on a length around off, Stokes pushes it towards Shami, he misfields and then runs after the ball, stops it before the ropes with a tumble. The batsmen run three. ENG 88/4 in 39.2 overs

* An extra man added in the slip cordon for the right-hander which means one fielder less in front of the bat on the off side.

18.28 IST: And that is why! Pandya bowls a lovely outsiwnger on off, Buttler plays for the original trajectory but is beaten by the movement.

18.26 IST: Well fielded! Shami is the man with a very good effort, saves a boundary for his side. Full and on off, a half-volley. Buttler times it towards mid off. Shami there dives to his left and stops it. Third maiden in a row.

18.23 IST: A good delivery to end the over! On a length and around off, kept out. A maiden by Pandya to begin with but not a threatening one. 

18.18 IST: A maiden over by Hardik Pandya, Buttler and Stokes play cautiously. ENG 84/4 in 37 overs

18.14 IST: BEAUTY! This time he angles it into the off stump, it pitches and then straightens. Buttler plays inside the line and gets beaten.

18.10 IST: We are back for what probably could be the last session of the game. Out walk the Indian players along with the umpires. They are followed by the English batters, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler who will resume their innings.

17.40 IST: 

17.32 IST: England 161 & 84/4 at Lunch, need 437 runs to win against India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham. Ishant 2/24, Buttler 19*.

17.28 IST: FOUR! But that was a risky one. Shami lures Buttler into a cover drive. He does so but fails to keep it down. Rahane stationed at covers dives full length to his right but it's out of his range. The ball screams away to the fence. Nice camerawork to show Shami jumping in anticipation along with Rahane.

17.26 IST: FOUR! Wanted to play that shot always but not sure that fine. A delivery angling into the batsman, around middle and leg, Buttler tickles it off the inside half of the bat to the fine leg fence.

17.25 IST: FOUR! Nicely played! Shami digs in a short ball on middle and off, not rising much, Buttler swivels with his pull shot and dismisses it in front of square leg for a boundary. IND 76/4 in 33.1 overs.

17.22 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack now. Two slips and a silly point to begin with.

17.19 IST: FOUR! A gentle push and it goes for a boundary. Soft hands. Shami bowls it just ahead of a length around off, Buttler gets forward to play inside the line and does so with a gentle bottom hand. As a result, the outside edge goes all along the ground past the slip cordon for a boundary.

17.15 IST: Hardik Pandya to Ben Stokes, no run. Angling into the batsman, from around off, Stokes flicks it off his pads but finds the square leg fielder.

17.05 IST: Hardik Pandya into the attack. He picked up a fifer in the first innings and would be hoping to add to his tally.

17.04 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler, no run. Shortish on off, Buttler pushes it with an angled bat to point. ENG 66/4 in 28 overs.

16.58 IST: Jos Buttler Dropped! We jinxed their catching, it seems. Rishabh Pant, the culprit. Bumrah uses the crease so well. Goes wide of it and angles it in. Full in length and Buttler outside edges his drive behind and Pant fails to catch the ball with a full length dive. Got a bit wrong-footed. He was moving to his left with the angle of the delivery but then the outside edge got generated and it went low to his right. A repeat of the first innings. Something the young man needs to work on.

16.52 IST: Jos Buttler is in.

16.51 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Pope for 16. Virat Kohli flies like Superman and takes a ripper. Let me repeat, India's slip catching has improved by leaps and bounds in this match. If Rahul's catch was tremendous then this catch was a notch up. Shami sticks to his line outside off, maybe a little bit of away movement once it kisses the deck, Ollie Pope chances his luck with a drive this time. However, he keeps all his weight on the back foot. Something which we have been pointing out throughout his innings. As a result, there isn't a proper transfer of his weight into the drive and an outside edge is induced. It hurries towards the slip cordon where Kohli dives across to his left and pouches it in front of second slip. India are all pumped up, they need 6 more wickets to get off the mark in this Test series.  England 161 & 62/4, need 459 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

16.47 IST: Ben Stokes arrives.

16.46 IST: OUT! Bumrah removes Root for 13. This is a tremendous catch by KL Rahul. India have improved exceptionally well with their catching in this Test match. A needless push by Root though. He batted well so far, was very cautious while leaving deliveries outside his off stump. But this time he got sucked into one. Bumrah serves it on a back of a length outside off, holding its line, Root tries to punch it off his back foot but gets a fat outside edge behind to second slip. It's travelling and KL Rahul stationed there does nicely to stretch his right hand out to grab the catch. He straightaway runs in joy and does a Delle Alli challenge celebration towards one of his teammates in the dressing room.  England 161 & 62/3, need 459 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

16.39 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, no run. In the air...safe! Heart in mouth stuff for the English skipper. Bumrah eyes a yorker probably but fails to land it. A low full toss as it approaches the batsman and Root is taken by surprise. He tries keeping it out but does so aerially. It loops towards mid on but wide of Ashwin stationed there.  ENG 62/2 in 23 overs.

16.33 IST: Drinks! The first hour of the day's play belongs to Ishant and India. He bowled superb lines and length and took two wickets of both the openers. English skipper Root is on the crease, gusting it out with Pope. They are still 459 runs behind. The play resumes after the break, hang around.

16.24 IST: FOUR! Shot! Crisp. A full ball, a half-volley rather. Root plants his front foot down and creams the drive through covers for second boundary of the over.

16.22 IST: FOUR! On the pads and punished. Root won't miss out on such looseners. He flicks it through square leg and the ball races to the fence.

16.21 IST: Mohammad Shami is on.

16.20 IST: FOUR! Easy peasy for Pope. A back of a length ball on the hips, Pope guides it to fine leg and takes a boundary.

16.16 IST: Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope, 1 run. Good, clever stuff from Pope. He pushes the length ball the off side and keeps the strike.  IND 47/2 in 18 overs.

16.09 IST: Ben Stokes is seen all set to bat next in the dressing room which means Jonny Bairstow won't be coming in next to bat. Though the news we have is he is fit to bat but we're not sure when.

15.54 IST: FOUR! Another one from the bat of young Pope. Edged and four! Around off, on a length, Pope goes with hard hands from his crease and gets a thick outside edge. The ball races to the third man fence for a boundary.

15.53 IST: FOUR! Pope hits it with a straight bat. Driven and driven nicely. A full ball on off, Pope punches it off the front foot and gets it down the ground nicely.

15.48 IST: Ollie Pope is the next batsman in.

15.47 IST: OUT! Ishant removes Cook for 17. Boom! Fireworks all around. What a start from Ishant. Wow! He has made Cook his bunny. This is the 11th time he has got his number and what a beauty to remove him. Similar kind of delivery bowled to Jennings. He gets it to straighten from around the wicket. Cook could have left it alone but on the contrary, he pokes at it tentatively. An edge is induced and straight into the safe hand of Rahul at second slip. England's most experienced, highest run-getter and most prolific batsman is walking back. India on the charge.  England 161 & 32/2, need 489 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

15.44 IST: FOUR! Caressed through covers nicely by Cook. He gets a full ball and does the rest. NO chance for the fielder there to get anywhere near it.  ENG 32/1 in 11.4 overs.

15.38 IST: Jasprit Bumrah is on. He has three slips and a short leg in place. Attack is the call!

15.35 IST: Joe Root comes to the crease with his side in trouble.

15.34 IST: OUT! Ishant removes Jennings for 13. Gone! Ishant Sharma draws first blood. What a cracker this. He bowls this on a back of a length on off and gets it to move away just a tad. Jennings pokes at it from his crease and ends up getting and edge. Pant completes the formalities. First over and first wicket. The procession has started. Is this the end of Jennings?  England 161 & 27/1, need 494 runs to win vs India (329, 352/7d) in Nottingham.

15.30 IST: We are about to get underway. Cook and Jennings are out in the middle and so are the Indian team. Ishant will start the proceedings. Here we go...

14.30 IST: Hello and welcome to our Live Coverage of the fourth and penultimate day of the ongoing third Test match between India and England in Nottingham. Stay tuned as we bring you all the latest updates.

Brief Day 3 Report: 

India rode on skipper Virat Kohli's 23rd Test century to give England a tough target of 521 to win the third Test and clinch the five-match series at the Trent Bridge, Nottingham, on Monday. India, after being bowled out for 329 in their first innings, declared their second innings on 352/7, soon after Hardik Pandya completed his half-century.

Nine overs into their run chase, England reached 23/0 at stumps and still needed 498 runs to complete what would be a highly improbable victory at Trent Bridge.
