IANS  |  Mohali 

India's off-spinner led from the front, claiming three wickets to reduce to 78/4 at stumps on day three of the third Test at the Cricket Association (PCA) I.S. Bindra Stadium here on Monday.

After conceding a 134-run lead in the first innings, kept losing their top order -- skipper Alastair Cook (12), Moeen Ali (5), Jonny Bairstow (15) and Ben Stokes (5) -- in quick succession, to still trail by 56 runs.

Joe Root, who opened the innings in place of injured Haseeb Hameed, was unbeaten on 36 along with night-watchman Gareth Batty (0) when the umpires removed the bails.

Brief Scores: 283, 78/4 (Joe Root 36 not out, Jonny Bairstow 15, 3/19) vs 417
