Earlier in the day, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav registered half-centuries, which enabled the hosts to post 417 runs in their first innings.
On the penultimate day of the Mohali Test, Virat Kohli's men will be aiming to further dent England's batting. India still have 56 runs in the bank.
The visitors will hope star batsman Joe Root can defy the Indian spinners and that their bowlers have a solid total to defend.
It is never easy to bat fourth on sub-continent tracks and Anil Kumble knows this all to well.
Kohli will be delighted with the situation of this Test. However, there is every possibility of Day 4 throwing up a major surprise.
