England end day three against Haryana in a strong position courtesy of half-centuries from Nick Compton and Jonathan Trott.

Nick Compton and Jonathan Trott both hit half-centuries as England closed day three of their final warm-up match at 118-0.

Their opponents, Haryana, were bowled out for 333 in reply to England's 521.

Rahul Dewan made England's bowlers work, hitting 143 and spending a total of almost eight hours at the crease.

Tim Bresnan and Stuart Meaker claimed three wickets each for tourists.
