Ravichandran Ashwin scored 72 before taking 3 wickets in England’s second innings IANS

India continued to dominate England in the third Test, as they had the tourists reeling at 78 for 4 in their second innings at Mohali. England suffered a batting collapse of sorts when they came out to bat in their second essay, trailing by 134 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin wrecked England s second innings with three wickets, continuing to make it a memorable match for himself. He already had scored 72 crucial runs in India s first-innings total of 417, which put them in a commanding position. Ravindra Jadeja squandered a chance to score his maiden Test ton, but Jayant Yadav did not miss out on bringing up his first Test fifty. Let us take a look at the day s highlights from Mohali:

Ashwin falls early: India were expected to continue making merry against the England bowlers who did not pose a lot of threat with the ball. On most of the occasions, wickets fell due to the batsmen playing poor strokes, and this is what happened on Day Three morning as well. Ben Stokes kept bowling a lot of wide deliveries to Ashwin, who drove well through cover throughout his innings. But on this occasion, the Indian batsmen chased one far away from him, and played it straight to the man at gully. Ashwin fell after adding 97 runs with Jadeja, which did strengthen India but the hosts did not have many runs in lead when the right-hander was dismissed.

Ravindra Jadeja s sword dance: In their special feature on Ravindra Jadeja, ESPNCricinfo reported that Jadeja s sister did not know anything about his skills with swords till the time she saw it on TV when he celebrated his maiden fifty at Lord s in 2014. It is something which the Indian cricket displays whenever he gets to 50-run mark, albeit with the bat. Resuming at 31 not out on Monday, Jadeja did not make any fuss in registering his third Test fifty his second against England. As soon as he completed the single, he first signalled towards the Indian dressing room as if he was asking for their permission, showing by his right hand how he would do it. Perhaps the signal came which was not telecast on TV and there was Jadeja, moving around his bat with the left hand as if it was a sword. Of course, there was widest of grins on his face.

Ravindra Jadeja- so near yet so far: Jadeja was dismissed for 90 off 170 balls, studded with 10 boundaries and a six. When he faced the 99th ball in the innings, Jadeja had already registered his longest knock in Test cricket in terms of balls faced. When he crossed 68 runs, he recorded his personal best score in Test cricket. But when he was on 81, came across a message from the dressing room that the scoring must be accelerated. Jadeja took matters in his hands, and hammered 16 runs via four boundaries off Chris Woakes. England replaced Woakes immediately, but Jadeja wanted to go for more. He danced down and attempted hitting a six off the first ball from Adil Rashid in the 123rd over, but ended up getting caught in the deep.

Jadeja would have been livid at himself for falling so close to the landmark, and so was everyone on the Indian side in this bilateral series.

Jayant Yadav frustrates England: Jadeja s exit marked the rise of Jayant Yadav, who had shown his skills with the bat in the second Test. On Monday, Jayant batted as if he had all the time in the world, showing dead face of the bat on most of the occasions. Jayant added 33 runs with Umesh Yadav for the ninth wicket, and in the process, also brought up his maiden half-century. Jayant was in no hurry to get to his fifty, which was in complete contrast to Jadeja s approach. Did the two batsmen get different messages? It is anyone s guess. Jadeja scored 90 off 170 balls, which was far more aggressive than Jayant s knock, in which his 50 came up on the 132nd delivery.

Nevertheless, Jayant s innings did ensure that England remained on the field for a very long time again. The tourists bowled a total of 138.2 overs.

DRS brings world to a standstill: India were eventually bowled out for 417. An early tea break was taken and Alastair Cook walked out to bat with Joe Root, since Haseeb Hameed suffered an injury. The Indians were expected to strike early and after brief spells, both the seamers were replaced. India made their intentions clear by deploying the ace spin pair of Jadeja and Ashwin right away, and there were a few opportunities created. On the final ball of the ninth over, Jadeja struck Cook on the pads, and even though the umpire rejected India s appeal the hosts looked very interested. They went on to appeal for DRS intervention, but soon, everything came to a standstill.

After checking the front-foot and the ultra edge, third umpire Kumar Dharmasena asked for ball-tracking. There was an agonising delay as everyone from the third umpire to the players as well as the fans kept waiting for the replay which was not available instantly. A few minutes later, it turned out that the ball was missing leg, much to the disappointment of the Indians.

Chink in Alastair Cook s armour: We are talking about the most technically and temperamentally correct batsman. Alastair Cook hobbled to 12 off 49 with one boundary in his innings, but he had to survive some very close calls. Cook asked for a review when umpire Chris Gaffaney adjudged him leg-before off Ashwin, and it turned out that the ball had pitched outside leg. Much to the amusement of those watching, this was after the DRS appeal by India which was unsuccessful.

However, perhaps for the first time in many years, Cook suffered one of the most embarrassing of dismissals. A delivery from Ashwin dropped right in front of the batsman in line of the off stump and straightened. Expecting some turn, Cook had already prodded forward with full face of the bat. But much to surprise, the ball snuck through the gap between Cook s bat and pad, and rattled the wickets. Ashwin would have truly enjoyed that wicket.

Virat Kohli vs Ben Stokes: The English all-rounder has already been demerit by 2 points, ever since he was involved in a verbal spat of sorts with the Indian captain. When Stokes had dismissed Kohli on Day Two, the English all-rounder celebrated the wicket by keeping his hand on the mouth. Kohli was not going to miss out on settling the scores, and when Stokes was adjudged out leg-before, the Indian skipper attracted everyone s attention and kept a finger on his lips.
