India are set to resume Day 4 of the 3rd Test in Rajkot in a commanding position, aiming to build on their significant lead and pile further misery on England. With a deficit of 322 runs and eight wickets still remaining of India in 2nd innings, England face a monumental task to avoid defeat.

Shubman Gill, unbeaten on 65, and nightwatchman Kuldeep Yadav, who played a crucial role with the ball on Day 3, will look to build a substantial partnership and further increase India’s lead.

Jaiswal’s flamboyant century, featuring aggressive T20-style strokeplay, showcased his immense potential. Though forced to retire hurt, his knock provided a crucial boost to India’s score and sent a warning to the English bowlers.
