Day 2 of the 3rd Test started off on a dramatic note as England gave India a taste of their own medicine in Ahmedabad. England spinners asked questions on a bowling friendly track, to which Indian batsmen had no answers. The hosts lost last 7 wickets for just 31 runs and went from 99/3 to being all out for 145 in the 1st innings. Joe Root claimed his maiden 5-wicket haul in 1st class cricket which proved to be the cheapest 5-fer in Tests. A little fightback from Ashwin and Ishant towards the end though helped India secure a crucial 33-run lead.
