Rohit Sharma along with Cheteshwar Pujara started the resue process for India. Rohit Sharma again looked solid in the 2nd inning. While Cheteshwar Pujara came with positive intent. England pacers bowled too many straight bowls to Pujara and Pujara did not miss the opportunity and scored a lot of boundaries on the leg-side. That gave Pujara a lot of confidence. Rohit scored another fifty in the 2nd session. Both Rohit and Pujara ensured that no wicket falls in the second session of Day 3 of Ind vs Eng 3rd Test.

In the second over after Tea, Ollie Robinson provided a breakthrough as he managed to pick the wicket of Rohit Sharma with an LBW decision. Rohit Sharma and Pujara added 82 runs before Rohit dismissed on 59 runs. Virat Kohli who looked confident and cautiously while leaving the ball outside off stump joined Pujara and the duo put an exhibition of good technical shots.
