English players on Day 3 managed to survive against Indian pacers. Ishant Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami showed their skills and grabbed wickets to push England down. 

India, however, could not manage to completely outplay England and the English players took India by surprise with their consistent performance in throughout the match. It was a team's effort from England's side which helped them survive against Indian pacers. 

England were in trouble at 122 for 5 when Joe Root was run out for 48. The lead was not even 100 runs but it was Buttler, who took the attack back to the opposition camp as Ravichandran Ashwin (35-7-78-1) despite being economical was not half as effective as Moeen Ali.

India will now have to show clinical performance in order to win the match and survive in the series.
