Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed caught behind by Jos Buttler off Stuart Broad early on Day Three of the third match between India and England at Southampton. Virat Kohli was the next man in for India.

India resumed at 25 for one on Day Three. Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara started solidly, with the former content to absorb deliveries, while the latter was more positive and scored runs more quickly. James Anderson kept asking questions of the batsmen, but Chris Woakes looked largely nonthreatening. Stuart Broad was sharp, and brought about the breakthrough by getting rid of Pujara.

Earlier, England were in a very secure position as they declared their innings at 569 for seven. Big knocks from Alastair Cook, Gary Ballance, Ian Bell, and Jos Buttler helped England pile on the runs. Buttler scored a fifty on Test debut in the third Test between India and England at Southampton, thereby becoming only the eighth English wicketkeeper-batsman to achieve the landmark on Test debut. After a fidgety start, Buttler overcame his nerves to compile an aggressive half-century. The innings came at a time when England were struggling to score quickly.
