Dhruv Jurel smashed a terrific 90 under pressure, also his first fifty in the format, as India made 307 in their first innings, with England taking a slender 46-run lead at lunch on day three of the fourth Test at the JSCA International Stadium on Sunday.

India began day three with 134 runs behind, but Jurel and Kuldeep Yadav (28 off 131 balls) shared a crucial 76-run stand for the eighth wicket to help the hosts fight back in the match. Though Kuldeep later became James Anderson’s 698th Test scalp, Jurel, playing just his second Test, survived a caught-out chance on 59 to be the top-scorer in India’s innings.
