England’s off-spinner Dom Bess scalped four Indian wickets, all of whom were key to India’s batting line-up. He dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant (wk) and turned the tables in England’s favour.

The offie Bess talked about Kohli’s dismissal. “[on the Kohli wicket] I was just trying to bowl at a spot, trying to build pressure for a long time, and II guess it just happened. It wasn’t like I was trying to bowl that magic ball. It was really just about hitting that box. I saw the replay and it seemed to [drift] a little more and got him playing at a wider line, and I’m glad Popey took a great catch at short leg,” Dom Bess told Star Sports.

“[Bowling to Pant] He’s a phenomenal talent. We saw him in the Australia Tests and that ability. At four down, he’s charging at Leachy and going hard. Very bold innings. I thought Leachy bowled really well today,” Bess added.

Further talking of Washington Sundar who stand 33* on Day 3 stumps, Bess said, “You saw the spot map, and from him to Sundar, I guess he had 20 balls on the same spot, but I guess it was just a different innings [from Pant]. We’ve seen today how much the pitch has broken up, how much it’s started spinning. We’ll come back tomorrow, try to get these four wickets, and assess where we stand.”
