Debutant left arm spinner Axar Patel, who bagged the prize scalp of England captain Joe Root, and pacer Ishant Sharma bagged two wickets each, while Md Siraj got the other wicket.
Only wicket-keeper Ben Foakes, who top scored with an unbeaten 43 (107 balls, 4x4), ploughed a lone furrow and showed some character in handling the spinners, along with Olli Pope (22), which the other batsmen failed to do so.
With a big lead of 195 runs and with three days left, India need bat as long as possible, extend the lead till the pitch deteriorates further as batting last on such a wicket would be very challenging and England need a miracle to see a turnaround.
