India are well on top here after stumps on day 3! Brilliant cricket by the hosts as England are still trailing by 56 runs and have already lost four crucial wickets. Earlier, their lower order took them past the 400-run mark. Handy knocks by Ashwin, Jadeja and Jayant Yadav gave India a crucial 134-run lead.
OUT! DECISION OVERTURNED! Stokes has to go. Nicely tossed up around off, Stokes tries to play it off his back foot but misses and the ball brushes off the pads and goes towards third man. There is a big appeal for a leg before but the umpire says leg bye. India think for a while, Kohli doesn’t look interested first but eventually takes a review. Replays show there is no bat and the ball tracking technology shows it’s pitching in line and impact is in line and the ball would have gone to hit the off stump. Stokes starts walking back and Kohli keeps his finger on the lips. Stokes did the same earlier when he removed the Indian captain.
