R Ashwin and Axar Patel had three wickets apiece by Lunch on Day 4 of the second Test in Chennai to help India close in on a big victory. Joe Root was batting on 33 but was running out of partners at the other end as England slipped to 116 for 7 at the end of the first session on Tuesday (February 16), chasing 482 for victory.
Apart from the Axar deliveries that spun away sharply and one from Mohammad Siraj that swung in and found the inside edge, Root and Dan Lawrence weren't really troubled early on despite the bowlers being on the mark.
The England batsmen were solid with their defence, not letting the bowlers get the better of them. It took the introduction of Ashwin to get India the first wicket of the day as Lawrence stepped down the track but Ashwin sneaked the ball between the batsman's legs, with Pant effecting a fine stumping.
Root, as has been the case in this series, preferred the sweep shot - scoring his first boundary by swiping an Axar delivery in front of square. The England captain was also quick with his feet, adjusting well to play a half-pull off the left-arm spinner. At the other end, Ashwin was keeping Ben Stokes on his toes, going past the outside edge plenty of times. He eventually got the left-hander to inside edge one on to the pad, with the ball lobbing up to Virat Kohli at slip.
