India are not giving up the third Test against England without a fight as Cheteshwar Pujari and Virat Kohli proved elusive at Headingley on day three (England 3/10, Draw 4/1, India 9/1 – Match Winner).

The hosts are still in a good position to win the third Test and level the series 1-1 after they were bowled out for 432 in their first innings, a lead of 354 runs.

After the embarrassment of being bowled out for 78 in their first innings, India produced a more determined batting display second time around to give themselves hope of saving the Test.

Craig Overton did manage to dismiss KL Rahul (8) just before lunch, the batsman being caught superbly by Jonny Bairstow at second slip, before Ollie Robinson trapped Rohit Sharma LBW for 59.

However, those were the only two scalps of the day for England, as Pujara and Kohli frustrated the home side to reach the close of play unbeaten on 91 and 45 respectively.

Although India will resume Saturday on 215-2, England still hold a 139-run lead and they will be hoping the new ball, which will be fresh and ready for day four, can do the damage.
