Due to bad light, stumps were called early, with eight overs remaining. As England decided to take the new ball in fading light and the umpires called it a day.

Now, India is fighting for a competitive score with wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant (batting on 14) with Ishant Sharma on four at stumps.

England Team did well after making our three front line batsman out within a total score 55. But, Pujara & Rahane tried to build the  the innings with patience and caution.
