17:52 GMT: End of the session's play
18:17 GMT: ?Another terrific day of Test cricket comes to an end, 281 runs and 14 wickets fell in a day's play. This match is well poised at the moment, India need 84 more runs while England need 5 wicket to win the match. Earlier today, England resumed from 9-1 and bowled out on 180, Sam Curran top scored with 63 while the other top score was Bairstow's 28. England were struggling at 87-7, but Curran built up 48 runs stand with Rashid and took the score to 135, and then 41 runs stand with Broad helped England to post a reasonable total to defend. Sharma grabbed his 8th wicket-haul, while Ashwin and Yadav claimed 3 and 2 wickets respectively. In reply, India got off to a poor start, Broad bowled petty well and removed both openers at 22, Curran, Stokes and Anderson picked up a wicket each. India were in trouble at 78-5, but Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik have been solid, though, putting up 32 runs without losing a further wicket towards the end of the day's play. Kohli at the crease with 43 while Karthik is on 18. Kohli need to stand till the end, if India not to lose this match, lets see who will win tomorrow. Please join us about the same time for the 4th and might be the final day of this first Test match. Till then, its goodbye from now......

Man of the match: SM Curran
11:59 GMT: That's the end of first Test match, England crushed India by 31 runs and took 1-0 lead in the 5-match series. In modest chase of 194, India folded to 162 and found themselves 1-0 down in the series. India started off the day with 110-5, requiring another 84 runs to win the match. But lost Karthik very first over of the day, Anderson was the culprit, but then Kohli and Pandya looked solid and built up important 29 runs stand. But Stokes came in and trapped Kohli LBW on his very first over the day, and then 3 balls later got Shami caught behind. Double wicket from Stokes ended India's chances to win the match. But then Rashid came in and got Sharma LBW, India had 9 down with 40 runs still behind. Pandya and Yadav resisted for 4 more overs before Pandya was caught at slip off Stokes and England went over the line. Like in the first innings, Kohli was top scored with 51 while Pandya's 31 was 2nd best. Indian bowlers bowled petty well, it was batting department, which let them down. Otherwise, the result would have been different. Sam Curran was declared man of the match due to his all round performance in the match (5 wickets and 87 runs). This is all we have for you today, please join us on Thursday for the 2nd Specsavers Test match between these two sides at 10:00GMT. Till then, take care and goodbye......
