Durham: LIVE IND vs CXI Updates: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of India vs County XI Day 3 of the Practice match from Durham. After the departure of Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja stitched together a fifty-run stand in no time that helped the Indians to take the lead well past the 200-run mark. Jadeja continued his good show with the bat and soon brought up his half-century before retiring out. Thakur and Vihari extended the lead to 284 before India declared the innings with the score on 192 for 3. Earlier, Agarwal and Pujara gave India a solid start in the 2nd innings of the practice match. However, both Mayank and Pujara failed to convert their starts and departed for 47 and 38. On Wednesday, India pacers – Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Siraj were the pick of the bowlers for India on Day 2 as both of them wreaked havoc with their seam and swing played a crucial role in bundling out County Select XI for 220. With this, India took a vital 91-run lead. On Day 3, all eyes will be on the Indian top-order once again who failed to impress in the first innings. Particularly, it’s a good chance for Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara to find their form back ahead of the much-awaited five-match Test series versus England, starting August 4 at Trent Bridge.Also Read - Match Highlights IND vs SL, 2nd T20I, Colombo: Dhananjaya de Silva Help Sri Lanka Beat India by 4 Wickets
