Indian skipper Virat Kohli played a skippers' knock. Now he stands between victory and defeat for India.
There is still drama left in the game. Ishant Sharma is trapped leg before for 11 as Adil Rashid strikes. The change in bowling worked for Joe Root.
He added 32 runs for the unbeaten sixth wicket with Karthik as the Test still hangs in balance with the first session on Saturday.
Virat Kohli's men putting all his efforts to clinch a historic victory on the third day of the first Test against England at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.
In six previous attempts at the venue, India lost five Tests and drew one. Overall, India have won just six Test matches in England.
Virat Kohli is waging lone battle as Indian top-order failed to fire for the second time in the first Test against England.
