They didn’t start off the day well as in the morning session as Bairstow and Stokes frustrated them for almost the entire session and stitched a crucial 110-run stand between them. However, after lunch they came out all guns blazing and it was Ravinchandran Ashwin who tormented the English lower order by getting his 22nd 5-wicket haul in Tests.England were eventually bundled out for 255 and handed a massive 200-run lead. The visitors did well to jolt the home side early as both the openers were sent back cheaply. Anderson then removed Pujara through a peach of a delivery and that was all for them today. Kohli and Rahane then kept the English bowlers at bay and made sure they avoid further hiccup. The skipper has got to his fifty and Rahane would be itching to get back into form tomorrow.

Follow the game here – #INDvENG BCCI (@BCCI) November 19, 2016That ends a fighting effort from England! They were jolted early and were reduced to 80 for 5 before the 110-run stand between Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes ensured that they did not concede a huge lead. Both of them missed out on their tons and that could very well be the decisive moment in the game.advertisementIndia got a lead of exactly 200 runs as Ravichandran Ashwin wrapped up the tail with another five-wicket haul. Jadeja and Jayant Yadav both bowled well to give him good support. INDIA ARE BATTING FIRST, they would be wanting to score quick runs and tire the England bowlers down. Broad has a sore feet and Ansari has a lower back issue, so the pressure will be on England. Let’s see how India bat. Stay tuned for their reply.(AP Photo)13.36 IST: Ashwin to Anderson, OUT! Anderson gone first ball, England fail to avoid the follow-on, trail by a massive 200 runs but of all RAVICHANDRAN ASHWIN GETS HIS 22ND TEST 5-FER! What a performance from the offie, yet again. Bowls a loopy delivery around middle, gets it to drift through the surface as Anderson gets back to punch it through the off side but misses and is rapped on the pads right in front of the stumps. Ashwin appeals and sees the finger going up. ENGLAND BOWLED OUT FOR 255! India have opted to bat again. Adil Rashid was England’s not out batsman on 32 #INDvENG England Cricket (@englandcricket) November 19, 201613.35 IST: Ashwin to Broad, OUT!! Ashwin has another! No reviews left which means Stuart Broad will have to walk back to the pavilion. Ash bowls a slider around middle and leg, skidding in with the angle. Broad gets back to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. A loud appeal follows and umpire Dharmasena gives it out. England still need 1 run to avoid the follow-on and trail by 200 runs! Eng 255/9, trail by 200 runs.13.08 IST: Jadeja to Ansari, leg-before appeal and given out by the umpire but Ansari reviews.ANSARI FALLS! Floated on off, Ansari plays all over it and is rapped in front of the stumps. Jadeja appeals and the umpire has no doubts over it. Ansari comes down to have a chat and suggests there were possibly an edge and goes for the review. Replays confirm there was no bat there and he was hit on his front pad first. Ball Tracker shows three reds and Ansari has to go. Wonder why would you review that. The two noises were the ball hitting both the pads. England have lost both their reviews. Jadeja has his first wicket! Eng 234/8, trail by 221 runs12.52 IST: WICKET! Drama as Stokes reviews in vain! Floated on middle and off, Stokes comes forward to defend but is hit on his pads. The silly point collects the ball and joins the appeal. There is a loud noise for an lbw and Kumar Dharamasena upholds the appeal. Stokes comes down and has a word with Rashid and goes for the review. Replays are not conclusive enough to show that there was inside edge. It stays with the on-field call of out for an lbw call. Three reds and that meant Stokes has to go after a superb knock. Cook has a grim look on his face. Stokes slams his bat down as he reaches the dressing room. Even if they went with the inside edge, the catch was completed so he would have been out caught as well. Valiant knock by him. Eng 225/7, trail by 230 runs90.4: WICKET! B Stokes (70) is out, lbw Ravichandran Ashwin, 225/7 #IndvEng @Paytm BCCI (@BCCI) November 19, 201612.49 IST: Ashwin to Stokes, huge shout for leg-before! Ben Stokes is ruled out LBW but he opts for the review straightaway. Looks close to the naked eye. Is there an inside edge? Even if there is, the catch is completed at silly point.12.24 IST: Shami to Stokes, FOUR! Top shot! Fuller on middle and leg, Stokes clips it through mid-wicket for a boundary. That is a superb shot, lovely timing. 12.17 IST: India decide to take the new ball. Umesh will have a crack with it first up. Eng 192/6, trail by 263 runs12.15 IST: Maiden over to start off with. Eng 191/6, trail Ind by 264 runs. 12.10 IST: Play commences post lunch with Mohammed Shami in attack. 11.31 IST: England 191/6 at lunch, trail India (455) by 264 runs.

Follow the game here – #INDvENG BCCI (@BCCI) November 19, 2016A very good session for England! They scored 88 runs in the session losing just the one wicket. India began the day being over enthusiastic. There were overthrows, a review was taken desperately as Stokes and Bairstow did not offer as many chances. Both of them registered their respective fifties and mixed caution with aggression to frustrate the Indians further.Stokes and Bairstow shared a 110-run stand before a wicket fell at last. Bairstow was cleaned up by one that swung in very late for a hard working 53. Stokes is still out there and with the deficit still 264 runs, England will want him to eat into it as much possible.

England go in 191-6 with Stokes 55* #INDvENGCatch up: England Cricket (@englandcricket) November 19, 201611.31 IST: Yadav to Stokes, A low full toss outside off, Stokes is rock solid as he defends it towards covers.

Umesh Yadav provides a much-needed breakthrough! Anil Kumble in the dressing room is applauding, looks a happy man. It’s full and angling in to the batsman at 142 kph, Bairstow looks to clip it across the line but misses as the ball brushes the pads and deflects on to the stumps. Yadav jumps and then punches the air in joy. A vital 109-run stand has been broken and England still need 56 to avoid the follow-on. Eng 190/6, trail by 265 runs(AP Photo)2nd Test. 78.3: WICKET! J Bairstow (53) is out, b Umesh Yadav, 189/6 #IndvEng @Paytm BCCI (@BCCI) November 19, 201611.02 IST: Jadeja to Bairstow, FOUR!! And that will be his 12th Test fifty. Another impressive knock this from the English keeper. Full and outside off, Bairstow looks to drive it through the off side but gets an outside edge through gully for a boundary. Bairstow has had a terrific year so far with 1215 runs from 14 matches and counting. He’s smashed 3 hundreds to go along with 6 half-centuries in 2016.
