12 runs from the over, all via boundaries. Doesn't seem like Ishant is getting the next over. Probably time for Binny?
Oh....Is it a dropped catch? Full on middle and leg, a bit quicker. Robson looks to nudge but gets a slight edge, Kohli moves low to his left but doesn't manage to hold on. A tough chance though.
A predicted, Binny into the attack.
Length delivery outside off, Ballance looks to cut but ends up chopping it into the ground.

Play and a miss! Binny finding his lines now. Length delivery outside off, tailing away a tad. Robson looks to steer but misses.

That's lunch on day 3! It's England's session as they scored 88 runs from 31 overs without losing any wicket.
Ballance(59*) & Robson(59*) win the 1st session of day 3 for England. They looked solid. Indian bowlers didn't fine much movement. Ishant Sharma was impressive to start off but then he looked a tad jaded after a spell of 6 overs. India would be looking for a breakthrough as soon as possible after lunch.
Right! The players have made their way out to the middle. jadeja will start off proceedings for India. Ballance is on strike.
Play and a miss! Full outside off, goes straight on, Ballance looks to drive but misses.

OUT! LBW! But Robson is unlucky here! There was an inside edge. Good length delivery on off, nips back in. Robson stays back and looks to defend but misses and gets hit on the pads. They all go up in an appeal and the umpire lifts his finger. On replays it seemed an inside edge.
SD Robson lbw b Sharma 59 (142b, 8x4, 0x6)
Ian Bell is the new batsman!
FOUR! Bell starts off in style. Short from Ishant and bell pulls it through square leg for a boundary.
6 runs and a wicket off the over.
Ishant Sharma continues. He's been India's best bowler so far today.....
