Chennai Test: England take control after sizzling Pant, calm Pujara’s counter-attacking stand

Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara’s stunning performance helped revive India’s first innings but Dom Bess dominated the hosts’ batters to put England on top on day three of the first Test here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday.

At stumps, India’s score read 257/6, with Washington Sundar (33*) and Ravichandran Ashwin (8*) on the field, trailing England by 321 runs.

England scored 578 runs in their first innings with the help of Joe Root’s double ton.

Jofra Archer dismissed both Indian openers. England were bowled out for 578.

The home team lost opener Rohit Sharma (6) early, edging one to Jos Buttler after Archer got the ball to move a shade along with extra bounce.
