Monday, 28 November 2016 - 9:37
Indian batsmen, including flamboyant and in-form skipper Virat Kohli, were made to toil hard before Ravichandran Ashwin's counter-attacking 57 enabled the hosts to reach 271 for 6 at stumps on the second day of the third cricket Test in Mohali.
India are only 12 runs behind England's first innings score of 283 after the visitors added 15 to their overnight tally of 268 for eight.
It was an intriguing day of Test cricket and hosts can claim that their nose is slightly ahead thanks to the 67-run stand for the seventh wicket between Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who also smashed a quick-fire 31 not out off 59 balls.
