Alistair Cook was the man who got a second chance until he wasted it by playing a bad shot in the first ball of Ravichandran Ashwin. Joe Root didn’t pick the ball and got LBW to Jayant Yadav.

India didn’t fail to capitalise to get back into the game after bowling out whole England team in the second session.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli scored their half centuries. But England made a quick work and took the situation under control in the third session of the day. But the partnership of Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Jadav turned the wheel towards the home team once again.
