With the declaration in mind, Ravindra Jadeja got a move on as he looked ahead at the opportunity of getting to his maiden Test century.
Here is his trademark sword dance.
Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli brought up his 24th Test ton and it was a chanceless inning. On his way to his 24th Test ton, he toppled many records. The biggest is going past Sachin Tendulkar to become the fastest to 24 Test centuries as an Indian. But the way he was dismissed was quite uncharacteristic of him. He tried to slog Lewis, but only miscued it to Devendra Bishoo.
Kohli who is never tired of scoring runs seemed a little bogged down and wanted to break free.
Kohli also surpassed Virender Sehwag to become fourth-highest century-maker in Tests for India. Kohli became the joint fastest to 3000 Test runs in India. He reached the figure in 53 innings, along with Pujara. Tendulkar took 55 innings to reach 3000 runs in India.
At the time of filing the copy, India was 619/8. Jadeja was batting with Umesh Yadav.
