India got an uphill task to chase a mammoth target of 420 runs to chase on the final day of the Chennai Test. It looks like an impossible task for the hosts, who have got off to a poor start on Day-5. And, James Anderson, the English pacer bowling has paved more roadblocks in Team India’s way. He dismissed vice-captain Shubhman Gill with a peach of an inswinger that took the stumps a couple of steps away from the grooves.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubhman Gill opened Day-5 for Team India. The hosts’ mindset was to go for a draw. But, England bowlers had some other plans. They came to the field all guns blazing and gave some early blows to Team India. Jack Leach dismissed Pujara in the first session of the day. Later on, James Anderson joined the party. Shubhman Gill, who looked settled and was playing in the fifties, was dismissed by the pacer with an audacious in-swinger. He clean bowled Shubhman Gill before dismissing Ajinkya Rahane in the same over.
