England were six without loss in their second innings at lunch on the third day of the fourth and final Test against India here on Saturday. Zak Crawley was batting on five and Dominic Sibley was on one at the break.
England, who conceded a first-innings lead of 160 runs to India, are still 154 runs behind.

Sundar faced 174 balls and hit 10 boundaries and one six, and remained unbeaten, missing what would have been his first Test century. For England, Ben Stokes took four wickets and James Anderson three.
India lead the series 2-1.
