<p>However, Joe Root, an England batsman, broke his little finger during a practice session on Sunday, raising another injury worry for the team. When he was fielding in the slip cordon and took a ball struck off the bat of Shreyas Iyer, his injury became worse.</p>

<p>With the hosts hoping to even the series after losing the first game in Hyderabad, Gill’s century in the second innings helped India set a goal of 399 runs for England.</p>
<p>After going through a poor stretch when his place in the Test squad was questioned, Gill finished with 104 off 147.</p>
<p>Due to injury, batter KL Rahul and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja are not participate in the current match, leaving India severely shorthanded.</p>
<p>In the first Test, Rahul reported experiencing soreness in his right quadriceps, while Jadeja injured his hamstring while attempting a fast single.</p>
<p>With two batsmen still undefeated, Zak Crawley and nightwatchman Rehan Ahmed, England has resumed its pursuit after concluding Day 3 at 67/1.</p>
<p>After the play of the day, Gill said that the morning session would be critical in determining which side will win the match.</p>
<p>Right now, it’s around 70-30, with the morning session being quite important. We’ve seen some movement from the fast bowlers, so perhaps we can succeed if we place the ball where it belongs, Gill said.</p>
<p>The 24-year-old said that batting on the pitch is difficult.</p>
<p>“As we witnessed today, it will have a varying bounce as the game progresses. Even if it isn’t spinning as much as the other pitches, it is still making an effort. “This is a difficult place to score runs,” Gill said.</p>
