In fine form, England posted a first innings score of 578 runs against India, on Day 3 of the first Test match, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Batting for 190.1 overs, the visiting batsmen dominated over the hosts, with skipper Joe Root slamming a double hundred. In his 100th Test match, Root lost his wicket on Day 2. Aiming to dismiss the tailenders in the early stages, Dom Bess lost his wicket to Jasprit Bumrah, without being able to build on his side’s momentum. Bess scored 34 from 105 deliveries. Jack Leach attempted to add more runs to his side’s total, registering 14 from 57 balls, meanwhile James Anderson lost his wicket to Ravichandran Ashwin. The Indian openers have a huge task on hand, and will be aiming to start on a strong note. (LIVE SCORECARD)
