For India, Akshar took 6 wickets and Ashwin bagged 3, where as Ishant Sharma took one. Nine wickets by spinners in this innings is the most an innings in day and night Tests bettering eight by Devendra Bishoo against Pakistan in Dubai in 2016-17.

Earlier, England won the toss and elected to bat first. The four-match Test series between India and England is currently levelled at 1-1 after India won the 2nd Test at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai by 317 runs.
