Virat Kohli scored his second century of the series as India dominated for the second day running at Trent Bridge, declaring on 352-7 to set England a world record 521 to win. They scored 70 runs during the wicketless session.

Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara continued batting for India on Day 3.

Today, India's first Innings ended on 329/10 in 94.5 overs.

India were in firm control of the third test against England as they advanced to 194 for two at lunch on the third day, building up a commanding lead of 362.

The irony was that England had enjoyed a solid opening stand to be 54 without loss.

Kohli also crossed the 400-run mark in this series, becoming only the second Indian captain after Mohammad Azharuddin (426) to do so against England.

Jos Buttler was the only blip in a session thoroughly bossed by India.

Admittedly, the overcast conditions made batting hard, but England´s top-order problems run deeper than bad luck with the weather.

Young batsman Ollie Pope became Sharma's second victim, before Pandya claimed the prize wicket of Root as KL Rahul took a low catch in the slips.

Still India batted on, steadily at first before Pandya moved through the gears to hint at an impending declaration.

Reasons Why Manchester United Lost To Brighton
Mourinho suggested he had taken reaction to his comments last season to heart, telling the BBC: "I have to learn from my reality". The Brighton fans on the main stand's concourse sang in unison when they saw Jose Mourinho on TV screens after Sunday's match.

The umpires called for a review but made a ´soft signal´ of out and the on-field call was upheld.

Ben Stokes, recalled just days after being acquitted of an affray charge on Tuesday following an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September a year ago, walked out to a few boos from the crowd. Among Indian players, only Rahul Dravid (10) has done this more often.

Kohli was not at his most fluent but this was an ideal innings given India´s situation and an edged four off Chris Woakes, his 10th boundary in 191 balls during almost five hours at the crease, saw the star batsman to a 23rd Test hundred.

He tried to attack but only edged to give a catch at slip off Anderson.

England were now 118 for seven.

The first ball of Pandya´s next over saw Adil Rashid well caught by Pant, two-handed this time.

Stuart Broad survived the hat-trick ball but was still out for a duck, the left-hander plumb lbw to a Pandya inswinger.

At 128 for nine, England still needed two more runs to avoid the follow-on.

They got them when Buttler´s leading edge off Shami just cleared Ajinkya Rahane at cover-point.

Kohli, who had recovered from a stiff back to play in the Test, batted nearly six hours (293 minutes) before he fell leg before to Chris Woakes after tea on the third day with England's bowling wearing a beaten look.
