India batter Shubman Gill was playing well in the second innings of the ongoing third Test. Coming off a Test hundred in the second innings of the previous Test, Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal put together 155 runs as the team lost their skipper Rohit Sharma early. The latter retired hurt at the end of Day Three due to back trouble.

However, Gill continued to bat well and was looking set to get another Test hundred in the ongoing Day Four. However, due to his confusion with Kuldeep Yadav, the right-hander got run out. Notably, at first, the England players weren't confident of the runout. However, as the on-field umpires referred to the third umpire, the U19 World Cu 2018 winner was found short.

Shubman Gill gets out on 91 for the second time in his Test career

For the second time in his Test, the white-ball opening batter got out on 91 for the second time. Three years back, during the last day of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21, Gill was caught at slips by  Steve Smith off Nathan Lyon. India ended up winning the game by three wickets, chasing 329 runs to win. Coming back to the ongoing game, the home team has scored 314/4, leading by 440 runs. Jaiswal, who was retired hurt on Day Three, has returned to bat and is one run behind his 150. On the other hand, Sarfaraz Khan (22*) has started his innings well.

Yadav, who batted as a nightwatchman in the innings, has managed to hit his first six in Tests. The left-hander batted for more than an hour which was more the enough demanded from the team. In the next session, India is looking to get as many runs before TEA and at the start of the last session of the day, England might come out to bat.
