IND vs ENG Live: Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin were unbeaten on Day 3.© BCCI
Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin hold key for India as the hosts look to avoid the follow-on on Monday against England in the ongoing first Test in Chennai. India finished Day 3 at 257 for six after England off-spinner Dominic Bess picked up four wickets including the big one of Virat Kohli. Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara scored half-centuries on Sunday to revive India after the hosts lost Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane in quick succession. Pujara scored 73 runs while Pant missed out on a hundred by just nine runs. There are some rough patches for spinners to exploit and India still need 122 more runs to avoid follow-on and force England to bat again on a deteriorating surface. (LIVE SCORECARD)
