The day started nicely enough for the Indians as the duo of Sundar and Ashwin battled it out for the first hour, but once Ashwin fell, the batting just collapsed. India came out with fire, with the ball, and were just phenomenal as they were right on the money right from ball one as Ashwin bundled Burns on the first delivery. India kept chipping away at the wickets while the English players kept trying to add to their massive lead. Led by Ashwin, who snared 6 wickets, they bundled the English Lions for 178. Coming out with the blade, they would have been hoping that Rohit and Gill could fend off the challenge until Stumps but Rohit could not hang around and the duo of Gill and Pujara ensured no more casualties occurred.
