Rohit, Pujara hold firm for India

Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara held firm for India as they denied England a fresh breakthrough in the third Test at Headingley on Friday.

India were 112-1 in their second innings at tea on the third day, still a huge 242 runs adrift of England's first-innings 432.

Rohit was 59 not out while Pujara, who played at Headingley for Yorkshire, was 40 not out.

Their second-wicket stand of 78 was exactly as many as India made as a team during a spectacular collapse in the first innings of this match.
