Can India finish of England on Day 3 of the match tomorrow?
November 17, 2012 11:30am CST
India has dominated the first two days and have enforced the follow on. Following on 300 odd runs behind India, England have made a combative start to their reply. They have a unbeaten century opening partnership. This could mean some real hard work for Indian bowlers tomorrow. On the other hand, England would need to continue to build on this great start if they want to get something out of the game. Do you think India can wrap it up tomorrow? Or do you think England will take the battle to another day? Cheers! Ram

Yes, a slight error. But, I think editing isn't possible here. Pujara was 98 on 1st day and 203 on 2nd day. England batted throughout the 3rd day. On 4th day Indian spinners can do something since England team may be nervous too.

I think that chances are 50-50. England batsmen always are having weak points against Indian spinners especially on Indian pitches. Spinners can bring more damages on 4th day than 3rd day. On the other hand England middle order batsmen and tail enters have records of withsdanding and can lengthen the match to 5th day.
