India vs England IND vs ENG, 2nd Test, Day 3 Live Updates: India's new-wall Cheteshwar Pujara has been departed for a mere 7, got run out in the most astonishing way by Pope and Foakes. During the match, Pujara comes down the track and flicks the ball to short leg. As he was getting back to the crease, he tried to slide the bat in but it got stuck into the pitch just outside the crease and he dropped it and tried getting back in, but couldn't do so in time and gets run out. India 100/5 in their second innings and lead England by 297 runs in Chennai on Day 3.
Moreover, Rishabh Pant comes down the track to Leach but is beaten by the flight and the ball turns in sharply. But Foakes displays fine wicketkeeping skills as he collects the ball and brings down the bails in a jiffy. Leach dismissed Rishabh Pant while Moeen Ali has removed Ajinkya Rahane.
The English wicket-keeper batsman Ben Foakes fought it out with an unbeaten 42 but ran out of partners as India picked up a 195-run lead. Rohit Sharma batted positively in India's second essay, and also had a few lucky breaks. Shubman Gill looked promising until he was trapped in front by Leach.
