Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have slowly steadied the innings when it appeared like India might combust after Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were back in the hut early on day three. They have added more than 50 now to not only arrest the slide but also help India bolster the lead to 132 runs. While Pant has counterattacked his way to 41 off just 50 balls, Kohli has remained calm at the other end. However, the job is not done yet, and the duo must build on the 62-run stand.
