Pragyan Ojha had Graeme Swann caught by Virender Sehwag at first slip on the second ball of the day.
The day's play started with Matt Prior and Swann resuming England first innings.
England ended Day 3 in more than a comfortable position at 509/6 and India, in spite of picking up five wickets, still remain on the back foot.
The four-pronged Indian attack struggled for the second successive day with England skipper Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen dominating with the bat. Poor Indian fielding only helped England's cause as the visitors piled up 293 runs during the day's play, losing five wickets.
Cook benefitted again on Friday when Ishant Sharma dropped a dolly off his own bowling.
England overhauled India's first-innings tally of 316 half an hour after the lunch break without losing any wicket.
Cook's glorious knock ended under bizarre circumstances. His marathon 190, that came off 377 balls in 492 minutes, was the second-highest score by a foreign player at the Eden Gardens after West Indies great Rohan Kanhai's 256 in 1958.
After Cook's departure, Pietersen took it upon himself to bolster the run-rate. He was particularly severe on Ojha, whom he lifted for a six and dispatched to the boundary thrice on either side of the tea break.
The fourth day pitch could see some spin and the in form English spinners will relish the opportunity to have a go with the fragile Indian batting line-up.
England are in a position to call the shots in pursuit of a historic victory at the Eden Gardens, where they last won in 1976-77 under Tony Greig.
