India vs England Day 3 at Edgbaston, as it happened: Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik take India to end of day 3
The Test is tantalizingly poised with India needing 84 more runs to win and England needing five wickets. Both teams will fancy their chances of taking a 1-0 lead going into the second match of the series. Pacer Ishant Sharma took five wickets and spinner R Ashwin scalped three batsmen as India bowled out England for 180 in their second innings. Sam Curran, with his 63-run knock, led a stunning rearguard fight to help the hosts extend their lead to 193 after the hosts were down 87 for seven at one stage. In a shaky start, India lost five batsmen before skipper Virat Kohli (43) and Dinesh Karthik (18) combined for a crucial unbeaten sixth-wicket partnership. If India manage to overhaul the target, it will be their only seventh Test win on the England soil.
