2nd Test: India Leads By 351 Runs At Lunch, England Picks 5 Wickets
India lost five wickets but added 102 runs in the morning session on Monday to stretch their lead to 351 on Day Three of the ongoing second Test against England here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
At the lunch break, India -- who had lost the wicket of Shubman Gill (14) on Day Two -- reached 156/6 with skipper Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin batting on 38 and 34 respectively.
The hosts lost a flurry of wickets in the session, but considering they have added more than 100 runs to their total, they stand well ahead in the match.
Cheteshwar Pujara (7) was the first wicket to fall in the day as he got run-out in the most bizarre fashion.
Rohit Sharma (26) was the next to go as he could add just one run to his overnight score before he was stumped by England wicketkeeper Ben Foakes against Jack Leach.
