Premier spinner Jack Leach, after a stellar performance on the first and second days, took the field with an injured knee and bowled 10 overs and got the wicket of Shreyas Iyer for 13 runs.

Bharat and Ravichandran Ashwin tried to take control of things in a 57-run partnership but Hartley dismissed him and ended India’s hopes.

Rohit’s team scored 436 in their first innings in reply to England’s 246 and left the tourists in trouble at 163-5 on the third day when Pope played an innings for the ages and scored his fifth Test century.

Pope, who blunted the spinners with sweeps and reverse sweeps, started the day on 148.
