Trailing by 29 runs, the visitors will hope to post a lead of minimum 100, given that they will bat fourth on a Wankhede pitch that is deteriorating.
Talismanic batsman Kevin Pietersen (138 not out) is still at the crease, after sharing a 206-run stand with captain Alastair Cook (122). The England captain was one of two wickets to fall for England in the first session that yielded 120 runs; Jonny Bairstow (9) was the other.
