Indian spinners, led by Axar Patel (4/68), yet again troubled the visiting batsmen even as all-rounder (55) resisted the attack quite well before being trapped in front by Washington Sundar.

Dan Lawrence, coming out at number seven, also batted well, helping England get close to the 200-run mark with his 46-run knock.

Had Lawrence shown a bit more patience, it would have served England's purpose even more.

India are leading the series 2-1 and need just a draw to qualify for the World Test Championship final against New Zealand to be held in June.
