Kohli 97(152) missed out on a much-deserved ton that could have been his second in this series, while Rahane was dismissed scoring 81(131). Hardik Pandya was dismissed for 18, while Rishab pant made his debut album test appearance, and opened his account with a 6, and is currently unbeaten on 22(32)* with India ending the day 1 on 307/6 at stumps.
