Mohali: India got off to a shaky start as they lose three quick wickets in the second innings against England at Mohali. The total lead over England touched 207 runs at tea time as the scorecard registered 56/3 for the Indians. Gambhir and Laxman were on the crease when the game dismissed for tea.

Sehwag was the first man to go as he went for a quick single off Stuart Broad that seemed improbable. Ian Bell made no mistake to quickly collect the ball and dislodge the stumps at the bowler's end on the dive.

Dravid was cleaned up by Stuart Broad. The first innings centurion struggled during his brief stint at the crease. He failed to score a single run and played late at a full pitched Broad delivery that kept rather low. Sachin Tendulkar fell prey to James Anderson at 5 runs.

Earlier England were bundled out for 302 in their first innings on 4th day of the the second Test in Mohali. England lost their last six wickets for 22 in 12 overs. India claimed an extremely healthy lead of 151 runs. Harbhajan Singh was the pick of the bowlers with four scalps. Zaheer Khan took three wickets to contribute to the England collapse.
