Having been bowled out for 107 on day two, India will have harboured hopes of at least limiting England's lead when they reduced the hosts to 89-4 at lunch.

England captain Joe Root made a decision to field when he won the toss, a combination of cloudy skies and a green-tinged pitch were ideal for Anderson.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (29) then joined Rahane in the middle to add 22 runs for the seventh wicket before the old warhorse James Anderson came back to add more misery to the visitors with the dismissal of the Mumbai batsman.

"We exploit those conditions as well as anyone in the world". With just two days and a session left in the Test match, England have done well to all but take an Indian win out of the equation.

He reportedly also said Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be held in contempt of court for the deportation. The judge ordered the government to immediately return Carmen and her daughter to the U.S.

Woakes scored an unbeaten 120 in tricky conditions as England batted through a slightly abbreviated day to finish at 357 for six, while Jonny Bairstow contributed 93 to a record sixth-wicket partnership of 199 for England against India.

"The first half (of the day), when the game was on and off, it was hard for the batting team to switch on and off".

In doing so, Bairstow brought up his 19th Test half-century off 76 balls. Such scrambled thinking then did for Pujara after India's No3 set off for a single in Anderson's next over.

For the 37th time in a row, Kohli altered the team on Frida, bringing in Cheteshwar Pujara in place of Shikhar Dhawan and also including Kuldeep Yadav ahead of Umesh Yadav.

Hurricane Hector to pass just south of Hawaii
Hector's strongest winds are confined to about 40 miles from the eye and are not expected to affect the island. Hawaii County officials declared a precautionary state of emergency ahead of the storm.

But that was enough time for England to pick up three wickets with Anderson dismissing both India openers and Cheteshwar Pujara being run out.

England's lead passed 200 soon afterwards but Bairstow was unable to join Woakes in reaching three figures as he went for a big drive and edged Pandya (2-66) behind, Dinesh Karthik taking a superb one-handed catch as he dived full length to his right.

While Chris Woakes and Johnny Bairstow were tormenting the Indian bowlers, Kohli had to leave his troops to treat his sore back. But Bairstow, as he's often done before, held firm while attacking the loose ball. They haven't got anywhere near as many runs as they would've wanted, but the match isn't done by any means.
