4th Test, Day 3: Rohit’s century helps India take a 171 runs lead against England
 
London: Rohit Sharma scored his first overseas Test hundred, while Cheteshwar Pujara chipped in with valuable 61 as India ended day three on 270/7 in their second innings, leading by 171 runs against England in the fourth Test, here on Saturday.

Virat Kohli (22*) and Ravindra Jadeja (9*) were unbeaten at the crease at the end of day’s play at The Oval.

Resuming on their overnight score of 43/0 in overcast conditions, India had the perfect start as openers KL Rahul and Rohit saw through the first hour and added 36 runs during that period.

James Anderson struck for England when he dismissed Rahul (48) just as he was approaching his half-century.

Cheteshwar Pujara joined Rohit at the crease, and the duo ensured there were no further hiccups for the rest of the session. At lunch, India had a lead of nine, having reached 108/1.

The pair continued their excellent run in the second session, with Pujara, in particular, adopting an aggressive approach early on. That mantle passed to Rohit as he reached to his eighth Test century when he hit Moeen Ali for a six.

Pujara was also on the verge of a half-century on 48*, as the visitors ended the session on 199/1, with a lead of exactly 100 runs. He eventually brought up his half-century, continuing his excellent form after his 91 at Headingley.

The Indians looked set for a big total with the pair of Rohit and Pujara looking largely untroubled.

But the introduction of the second new ball would bring about a change in the contest.

Ollie Robinson delivered a brilliant over, first dismissing Rohit Sharma for 127. He followed that up with the wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara for 61, and India found themselves in trouble with two fresh batsmen at the crease.

Thereafter, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja countered the challenging conditions expertly. Due to dip in the light conditions, England started to bowl spin from both ends.

However, the play was soon suspended due to bad light, and it was stumps shortly thereafter.
