India did not get off to a good start to their first innings as Rohit Sharma was sent back to the pavilion by Jofra Archer in the fourth over. Opener Shubman Gill was then joined by Cheteshwar Pujara but their partnership also did not last long as the former was dismissed by Archer in the 10th over.

Skipper Virat Kohli (11) too failed to leave a mark as Bess picked his wicket in the 25th over. In his next over, Bess got hold of Ajinkya Rahane (1), reducing India to 73/4. Pant then joined Pujara out in the middle.

While Pujara opted for a defensive approach, Pant played with an attacking mindset. Both completed their respective half-centuries and provided the team with some momentum. Their 119-run partnership was brought to an end by Bess, who removed Pujara (73) in the 51st over. Washington Sundar then came out to bat.

Continuing his stunning performance with the ball, Bess then scalped the wicket of Pant, who missed his century by nine runs. Ashwin and Sundar played very cautiously and avoided risky shots, ensuring hosts did not lose more wickets on the day.

India vs England 1st Test Day 3 pitch report

It's dustier than what we saw on Day 2. A few more rough marks for the right-hander too now. Turn and bounce might be on the slower side though giving the batsmen a little extra time," says Deep Dasgupta during pitch report.

WATCH: Ben Stokes' interview

Ben Stokes said the England team was not at all thinking about declaration on Saturday evening.
 
"There were no thoughts whatsoever of a declaration tonight because I'll be stupid if we won the toss and bat first, you just get as many runs as you can out here in India.
 
"And if we can bat for another hour on Day 3, you know, we would be very happy with that," he added.
 
India and England are engaged in a four-match Test series, with both teams vying for a place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final.


Stokes on England players' ability to play spin

A great strokemaker himself, star all-rounder Ben Stokes is in awe of Joe Root's ability to play spin bowling, saying on Saturday that half of England team's batsmen can't tackle the tweakers like their captain does.
 
Playing in his 100th Test, Root compiled his fifth double century on the second day of the opening Test against India here, reaching the milestone with a six off seasoned spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
 
Stokes, too, played his part in making a fine 82.
 
"Yeah, it makes us all feel, you know, pretty rubbish (laughs), the way he, how easy he makes batting look. And yeah, I was quite surprised he ran down the wicket and hit a six to bring up a double (century)," Stokes said during a virtual press conference.
 
"He is in phenomenal form and just makes things look very, very easy and the way that he plays spin, dominates spin and it's incredible to watch. I don't think half the England batsmen ever play spin in the way that he does.
 
"He's just got options, he has got an option for everything that's thrown at him and yeah, it is just a delight to watch him at the moment," Stokes added about his skipper who is enjoying an incredible run of form.

England not to declare overnight

Despite scoring a mammoth score of 555/8 against India in the first Test at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday, England all-rounder Ben Stokes said that visitors are in no mood of declaring overnight, adding that they can bat for another hour on Day 2.
 
Root's double ton and Stokes' 82 helped visitors to post a gigantic score in their first innings after winning the toss on Friday. At stumps on day two, England's score read 555/8 in 180 overs with Dom Bess and Jack Leach still at the crease on 28 and 6 runs respectively.
 
"No thoughts of what so ever of declaration tonight. We can bat for another hour tomorrow. We did not look to survive out there but we also looked to be positive the way we scored," Stokes said in a virtual press conference after the conclusion of play on day 2. Stokes feels that the wicket will deteriorate from here and it will not be an easy task to bowl out the hosts in both innings. "A lot of hard work will be required from the bowlers," he stressed. "Generally, wickets do not get any better out here in India especially when the heat plays. It gonna get dryer, it is gonna break-up and it is gonna deteriorate. Just because we have gone out there and scored some big first-innings runs does not give us the right to bowl them out twice like we hope to do. We know we still gotta lot of hard work to do as a bowling unit. It is tough to take 20 wickets," Stokes said.

WATCH: India vs England Day 2 highlights

Skipper Joe Root scored a superb double century in his 100th Test as England continued to frustrate India, amassing 555 for eight by stumps on the second day of the first Test here on Saturday.

Root's fifth Test hundred was laced with 19 hits to the fence and two maximums, one of which helped him to reach the milestone.
 
At the draw of stumps, Dominic Bess (28) and Jack Leach (6) were at the crease at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
 
Resuming the day at 263 for three, England amassed 191 runs in the first two sessions before India fought back with four wickets in the last session.
 
Root shared a 124-run partnership with Stokes for the fourth wicket, before forging another 86 with Ollie Pope (34) to put England in a commanding position.
