The start of play between India and England after lunch on Day Three of the fifth Test was delayed due to rain. However, since then, the covers have come off and play will begin at 7 PM IST.

Just before play halted, India lost both their openers. James Anderson trapped Murali Vijay leg-before and then Gautam Gambhir was run-out for three. That was the last ball before the rain came down. India face a huge task ahead of them in this Test match and if they are to save it, they would require a monumental effort.
