    Background: INTRODUCTION: Cricket -- and the third day of the third test between India and the MCC in Madras. India was at the wicket, and England slowly tightened its 2-0 grip on the five-test series with Essex seam bowler John Lever taking five for 59. Apart from Lever's wickets, it was a slow day with little sparkle by either side.

    SYNOPSIS: Willis to Gavaskar, not out overnight and building slowly up to his eventual 39 in four hours at the wicket with the occasional boundary. india were following an England first innings total of 262 all out.

    Woolmer dropped Madan Lal off Underwood -- but it didn't really matter because shortly afterwards he was caught Underwood off Willis anyway for 12.

    Lever -- who was later accused of keeping a shine on the ball with petroleum jelly -- to Gavaskar, putting up India's hundred with a boundary. Gavaskar was eventually caught Brearley off Old.

    Prasanna facing Underwood in an eight-wicket partnership with Ceremony, and a boundary to help the partnership score towards 36. Underwood eventually caught and bowled Prasanna for 13.

    And the end of India's attempts to keep its chances alive. Leaver to bedi, the Indian captain who later accused lever of rubbing the ball with petroleum jelly from impregnated sweat-pads over the bowler's eyes. Lever denied the accusation.

    The end of the innings -- with Bedi caught in the covers of Lever for five, and India at 164 all out.

    Two hours play left -- and the slow rate continued. Amiss with a single of Madan Lal.

    Madal Lal to Woolmer -- and a snatched two. England at the end of day's play -- 44 for one.
