England win by 31 runs
Back of the length from Stokes, comes in to Pandya, who edges it to Alastair Cook at first slip. Cook hold on to it and England get 1-0 up in the 5-match series.
OUT! Rashid takes the first wicket of the match and what a time to make it happen. He has trapped Ishant in front of the stumps. India now 9 down. One wicket away from the loss. Ishant lbw b Adil Rashid 11(15)
FOUR! Another short ball and this time it strikes Ishant on the gloves while he plays it on the rise, the ball flies over the fourth slip for a boundary to third man.
FOUR! Precious this is. Ishant Sharma guides the short ball between the gully and slip cordon, gets a boundary.
JUST IN: Ishant Sharma has been fined 15 percent of his match fee and handed one demerit point for his celebration ‘in close proximity’ to Dawid Malan after dismissing him on Day 3 of #EngvIND Test

WICKET! Stokes gets two in an over. Mohammad Shami walks back for a 0, extra bounce and Shami can’t do much about it. Just gets an edge which goes through to Bairstow. It’s all England at the moment, India are 141/8 and need 53 more.
GONE! IT’S VIRAT KOHLI
Ben Stokes traps Kohli in front of middle and the Indian captain is gone.
50 for Kohli
Nudges Anderson fine and the ball runs away to the boundary; Virat Kohli moves to 51. England appeal for LBW off the next ball, something that leaves Kohli almost amused. He then pokes at a wide delivery and the ball lands just short of third slip. He was not too amused by that.
75 to win
Pandya slowly playing himself in. One gets the feeling that this could be one of the most crucial knocks in his young Test career so far. Kohli is looking as solid as ever and moves to 46
Anderson strikes and India loses their first of the day.
Dawid Malan actually holds on to something, much to the relief of his captain surely. Umpires check if he had got his underneath or not, it is a legitimate dismissal as it turns out.
Skipper Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 43-run knock helped India score 110/5 at stumps on the third day of the first Test against England here on Friday. India needs another 84 runs to win.
After bowling out the hosts for 180 in their second innings at tea, Indian batters once again failed in the second innings as apart from Kohli, no other batsmen stood up to the occasion and went back cheaply.
Kohli and Dinesh Karthik (18) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.
India’s star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who dismissed former skipper Alastair Cook for a duck on Thursday evening to leave the hosts reeling at 9/1, started off the proceedings on Friday and immediately succeeded in packing back an in-form Jennings, caught beautifully by Lokesh Rahul at second slip.
Struggling at 18/2, Root along with new man Malan played out Ashwin watchfully but the offie constantly kept asking questions before prevailing over the English captain.
Root fell while trying to pull Ashwin only to find the ball landing in the safe hands of Rahul at leg slip before Ishant joined the party in rocking the English line-up.
