Ishant Sharma's five-wicket haul helped India to wrap-up England's second innings at 180 runs on the third day of the first Test between India and England at Edgbaston on Friday.
Virat Kohli-led team India need 194 runs to win with more than two days' play left in the game.
Ishant Sharma took three wickets in an over which jolted England's middle batting order.
England's batsmen failed miserably and slumped to 87 for seven before Sam Curran's 63 helped the team to put up a decent target.
the 20-year-old Curran had scored a maiden Test fifty in just his second match at this level a day after the Surrey left-arm swing bowler returned Test-best figures of four for 74.
But with seven sessions remaining, England now need a supreme effort in the field to prevent India taking a 1-0 lead in this five-match series.
