The build-up of the third India versus England Test at Mohali had an indomitable element threatening to have a say in the final outcome. For both the teams, winning the toss was as good as pathway to victory, as both Alastair Cook and Virat Kohli looked on in anticipation of the coin landing in their favour on Saturday morning. But Cook was luckier than his counterpart, and there was no hesitation in the English captain declaring to bat first. Unfortunately for England, winning the toss and Jonny Bairstow s resilient 89 were the only two bright moments on another tough day of Test cricket.

England ended the first day of the third Test in a precarious position of 268 for 8, with none of their specialist batsmen barring Bairstow and Jos Buttler to an extent troubling the scorers much. Strangely, England put on the aggressive mode early on in the game where they could have played the waiting game and consolidated their position in a must-win game in order to level the series. Instead, two of their best batsmen let them down. Cook went chasing one outside off and edged one behind off Ravichandran Ashwin s first ball in the contest, and Joe Root played a horrendous stroke to fall for 15 to Jayant Yadav.

India aided England with as many as four dropped catches, but unlike Rajkot, none of the English batsmen were ready to accept the gifts. Towards the end of the day, having already received two lifelines from Parthiv Patel, Bairstow missed a ball completely and was declared out leg-before.

For India, it will be imperative to put as many runs as possible on the board, and if they do manage to bat for long, the mountain of runs can help them to inflict a big defeat on England and take a near-unassailable lead. But India will have some worrying factors as well. Parthiv Patel will be opening and Karun Nair will have some amount of nervousness since it is his first match of the career.

England will know that they cannot fancy a lot from here. If they have to bring themselves back in the contest, they will have to stretch their first-innings total close to 300 and keep India around it when they get to bowl. There was a lot of movement off the pitch as well as in the air with the new ball, and James Anderson will be required to be at his best.
