Middle-order anchor Cheteshwar Pujara entwined with centurion Rohit Sharma to put India in cruise control on day three of the Oval Test. While he was rock-solid in defence as always, the looseners were duly dispatched to the fence. His enterprising approach was best exemplified by a fierce square-cut he played against Craig Overton. Batting mainstays Rohit and Pujara have brought up a 150-run stand as they lead India’s prance into the ascendancy, helping the tourists gain a sizeable lead of 137.
💥FIFTY FOR PUJARA!💥
A boundary off Overton gets him there off 104 balls👏
India are 206-1, leading by 105 #ENGvIND
