India lost their captain MS Dhoni early on the fourth day as England close in on forcing the follow-on against the tourists in the third Test match at Southampton on Thursday. India were 329 for nine after 104. 2 overs.

Earlier, Stuart Broad took wickets at either end of a long, hot day while Moeen Ali turned the focus back on to his cricket as England strengthened their grip on the third Test against India in Southampton. At the close of Tuesday’s third day, India were 323 for eight in reply to England’s imposing first innings 569 for seven declared, a deficit of 246 runs and still needing a further 47 to avoid the follow-on.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was 50 not out and Mohammed Shami four not out. Broad, who had looked tired for much of this series while struggling with a knee injury, appeared to have regained his old zest while taking three for 65 in 23 overs.
