Nagpur: Dec 16, 2012

Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni led India’s spirited fightback on day three of the fourth cricket Test against England here Saturday before four quick wickets and the captain’s heartbreaking run out on 99 towards the end of the day left the match evenly poised.

Kohli (103) and Dhoni, resuming the day at 86 for four, bailed India out of trouble through a 198-run stand for the fifth wicket, helping the hosts reach 297 for eight by stumps and 33 behind England’s first innings score of 330.

Play was called-off with Graeme Swann (3 for 76) castling the stumps of Piyush Chawla in the 131st over. Fast bowler James Anderson (4 for 68) was also responsible for India’s mini collapse in the final session.

Kohli and his captain dominated for most part of the day until the Delhi batsman departed after making his third Test century. Swann got him trapped leg before wicket, leaving India at 269 for five.
