England finds themselves in need of 332 more runs to clinch victory in the second Test against India, following a resilient display on the third day in Visakhapatnam.

India began the day with a solid 171-run lead and all wickets intact, hinting at a potential game-sealing performance. However, England's determined bowling effort restricted India to 255 all out, despite Shubman Gill's century.

At the close of play, England stood at 67-1, chasing a challenging target of 399. Yet, on a pitch showing signs of wear and tear, England's chances remain slim. The cracks in the pitch are expected to widen, further complicating England's task.

Sunday's performance offered a glimmer of hope for Ben Stokes's side. Tom Hartley impressed with figures of 4-77, supported by James Anderson's early breakthroughs (2-29). Although Gill's strong partnership with Axar Patel threatened England's resolve, they managed to dismiss India before the end of the day.

Despite losing Ben Duckett early, Zak Crawley (29*) and night-watchman Rehan Ahmed (9*) steadied the ship, guiding England to 67-1. This resilient stand has ignited hopes of a remarkable victory, one that would surpass their previous success in Hyderabad.
