Shubman Gill and Ravindra Jadeja kept India's batting in control after fall of quick wickets during 192-run chase on Day 4 of the ongoing third Test at JSCA Cricket Stadium in Ranchi on Monday, February 26.

India resumed their run-chase at 40/0 in 8 overs, with skipper Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jasiwal batting on 24 and 16, respectively. On Day 4, the opening pair carried on the same momentum from previous day, where they provided a solid start to India's run-chase.

Rohit and Jaiswal cruised India's run-chase until Joe Root dismissed the latter for 37 at 84/1. Thereafter, Rohit Sharma was joined by Shubman Gill at the crease. Indian skipper shut the outside noise and continued to lead India's batting as he scored 17th Test fifty.

Rohit and Gill were looking to form a good partnership until Tom Hartley dismissed the Indian skipper for 55 at 99/2. The hosts quickly lost another wicket in Rajat Patidar for a duck, dismissed by Shoaib Bashir for a duck at 99/3.

With three quick wickets by England, India have put themselves in position of reeling.

India need 74 runs to take an unassailable series lead

Following Rajat Patidar's dismissal, Shubman Gill was joined by Ravindra Jadeja to take carry on India's innings. The pair put the hosts' batting in control after three quick wickets as they steadied the ship to ensure no fall of wickets towards the end of first session.

Gill and Jadeja played defensively to put India in a good position after England spinners Joe Root, Shaoib Bashir and Tom Hartley struck one wicket each to turn change the momentum of the game.

At the end of first session, India posted a total of 118/3 in 37 overs, with Shubman Gill and Ravindra Jadeja batting on 18 and 3.

With 74 runs to win the fourth Test and take an unassailable lead, Shubman Gill and Ravindra Jadeja will look to keep India's batting sailing and wrap up with run-chase unless England bowlers trigger a collapse in the second session.
