5.00pm: Stumps – India 257 for 6 (Pant 91, Pujara 73, Bess 4-55) trail England 578 by 321 runs

That’s stumps on another intriguing day with Bess claiming four wickets to cause some damage after Archer made early inroads with the wickets of both openers. Sundar and Ashwin are still standing determinedly on 33 and 8 respectively but the first-innings deficit remains 321 runs. Sundar survived a late, difficult chance off Leach when Archer, turning and running back from mid-on, got his hands to a skied slog-sweep but couldn’t hold on.

4.25pm: Sundar, Ashwin dig in

England have burned two reviews in the space of three overs hoping to get Washington Sundar out, both for lbw shouts when he has left the ball alone outside the off stump. The first was nowhere near, missing the stumps by a long way, but the second was only just over the top of off. That might shift his approach a little bit, making him wary of leaving outside off.
