Eng vs Ind - 3rd Test, Leeds, day 3

Pujara leads fightback as India frustrate England

India 78 (Rohit 19, Anderson 3-6, Overton 3-14) and 215 for 2 (Pujara 91*, Rohit 59, Kohli 45*) trail England 432 (Joot 121, Malan 70, Hameed 68, Burns 61, Shami 4-95) by 345 runs

Leeds: England's push for victory in the third Test was met by stubborn resistance from India on day three at Headingley on Friday.

Needing 354 to make England bat again, India rebounded from being bowled out for 78 in their first innings by working to 215-2.

They were led by Cheteshwar Pujara's stoic 91 not out, while Rohit Sharma made a stylish 59.

When their second-wicket stand of 82 was ended, captain Virat Kohli looked in good order for his 45 not out.

England, who lost their last two wickets for nine runs in the morning to be dismissed for 432, largely bowled well without rewards.

Ollie Robinson and Craig Overton were particularly impressive on an unresponsive pitch, claiming a wicket apiece.

While England are not yet in serious danger of being on the wrong end of another famous Headingley comeback, they are being made to battle hard to level the series at 1-1.
