England all out for 255, India 8-0 at tea on day 3
VISAKHAPATNAM, India (AP) India bowled England out for 255 shortly before the end of the second session on day three to take a stranglehold of the second test at the tea break on Saturday.
Ravichandran Ashwin took 5-67, his 22nd five-wicket haul in test cricket, and sixth in 2016 as England's batsmen failed to significantly close on India's big first innings score of 455.
Allrounder Ben Stokes provided the main resistance for the tourists after lunch, scoring 70 from 157 balls, with 11 boundaries.
England crossed the 200 mark in 85th over, before Ashwin broke through trapping Stokes lbw in the 91st over.
The batsman went for a television review and there seemed to be a hint of inside edge, although he would have been out nevertheless, caught at silly point.
India then polished off the tail quickly, as England lost their last four wickets for 30 runs.
Zafar Ansari (4) was trapped lbw by Ravindra Jadeja (1-57), before Ashwin then dismissed both Stuart Broad (13) and James Anderson (0) lbw in the same over.
Rashid was unbeaten on 32 at the end of the innings.
India then chose not to enforce the follow on and reached 8-0 in six overs before tea, a lead of 208 runs, with Murali Vijay unbeaten on three and Lokesh Rahul one not out.
