(Reuters) – England were all out for 81 in their second innings on Thursday, setting India a victory target of 49 runs in the day-night third test in Ahmedabad.

Ben Stokes (25) topscored for the tourists with only three English batsmen managing double digits in the spin-dominated contest which appears to be heading towards a finish inside two days.

Axar Patel, who took six English wickets in the first innings, returned 5-32, while spin colleague Ravichandran Ashwin claimed 4-48 as he reached 400 test wickets.

England managed 112 in their first innings but staged a comeback after bowling out the hosts for 145 before suffering a second batting collapse in the pink-ball contest.

The four-test series is level at 1-1.
