England's bowling attack reduced India to 323-8 in ideal batting conditions yesterday to leave the home side with a commanding lead of 246 runs at the end of day three of the third Test at the Rose Bowl. India lost three wickets in the final session, with Stuart Broad removing Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19) shortly before the close, while Ravindra Jadeja was out lbw for 31 to James Anderson.

Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane (54) had scooped the ball up high off Moeen Ali and substitute fielder Sean Terry got underneath to dismiss India's highest scoring batsman of the day. India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unbeaten at the crease on 50, his 31st Test half-century, alongside Mohammed Shami, who is four not out in the tourists' reply to England's first innings total of 569-7 declared.
