England bowled out for 81. Achieving their lowest total in a Test in India 😢. So far in the day - less than 2 sessions - there’s been 127 runs scored and 17 wickets taken. India need 49 runs to win. Don’t think this is going to last long. 🏏

Now India open there bowling with 2 wickets in the first 3 deliveries by Axar Patel. Wow! 🏏

Joe Root bowling in the first session this morning - 5 wickets for 8 runs in 6.2 overs. His first five-wicket haul. I have been glued to watching the India v England third Test; was meant to be switching to radio coverage so I could get on with some home DIY 😉 🏏
