England 260/8, Sam Curran 37, Stuart Broad 00, England lead by 233 runs, India vs England, 4th Test match, Day 3 highlights: A steady and important knock from English batsmen Joe Root (48), Jos Butler (69) and Sam Currans* (37) helped the hosts to take a lead of 233 runs over India on the day 3 of the 4th Test match Rose Bowl stadium in Southampton.
With the loss of 8 wickets, England has scored 260 runs in 90.1 overs at the stumps of the day 3.

Earlier at tea, English batsman Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes’ partnership managed to take a lead of 123 runs in the second innings for England.

In the first session, England lost three wickets. India will be happy with the breakthrough of Keaton Jennings just before lunch. However, Joe Root is still on the crease. Visitors will be hoping to bundle out hosts early just like first innings. Both pacers – Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma have done their part but lone specialist spinner in the team Ravichandran Ashwin did not quite perform in the same way. 

England was going well with a partnership between Joe Root and Keaton Jennings but excellent delivery by Mohammed Shami did the remaining part for Virat Kohli’s men. KL Rahul was excellent in the slips.

Thanks to Cheteshwar Pujara’s 132 runs knock, Virat Kohli and company surpassed England’s score of 246 runs. For England, spinner Moeen Ali picked up a fifer off 63 runs in his 16 overs with an economy rate of 3.94. Moeen Ali dismissed Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and managed to restrict India for 273 runs in their second innings.
