India started the day at 187/5 needing another 60 runs to avoid follow-on but lost 7 for 20 to start the day on a poor note.

Without adding a single run to its overnight total, India eves lost two wickets in vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Taniya Bhatia as the collapse continued.

From 167 for no loss on Day two, courtesy brilliant knocks from Shefali Verma and Smriti Mandhana, the rest failed to apply themselves.
