Hardik Pandya`s five-for hands India complete control of 3rd Test

Hardik Pandya`s five-for hands India complete control of 3rd Test

India lost debutant Rishabh Pant (24), all-rounder R Ashwin (14) and tailender Mohammed Shami (3) and Jasprit Bumrah (0) early in the first session of the day 2 and managed to score 329-runs in the first innings.

The beauty of playing cricket in England is taking advantage of its fickle weather, and even for an Indian pace attack that has prided itself in consistently taking 20 wickets overseas, it was a Super Sunday in the third Test against England at Trent Bridge.

Chris Woakes had bailed out the top-order with a maiden Test century in England´s innings and 159-run win at Lord´s last week. Ollie Pope essayed one confident cover drive for four but he was soon gone for 10, tickling Ishant down the leg-side as Pant claimed a good, diving catch.

England batsman Ben Stokes survives a confident appeal from India bowler Hardik Pandya. The visitors need to take inspiration from the way they had fought back in the final Test of a three-match series in South Africa earlier this year after losing the first two to the Proteas.

On-field official Marais Erasmus gave the soft signal of out after deciding Rahul had caught the ball low at slip and TV umpire Aleem Dar saw no conclusive evidence to overturn the call, much to Kohli's delight. The Karnataka man held the edge at second slip and cupped his ear: there was no questioning this catch. Generally I try to seam it as well, but when you're trying to swing it, you tend to bowl full and driveable balls.

Alternatives usually come from county cricket but as the Championship fired up for its latest round all three England selectors - Ed Smith, James Taylor and Trevor Bayliss - were at Trent Bridge.

Only Jos Buttler´s 39 kept India at bay and denied Kohli the chance of enforcing the follow-on. England had the ball swinging at once. India ought to have made life miserable for England's openers, both of whom had been struggling for confidence.

Rahul, in particular, was aggressive as he hit seven fours and scored at 100-plus strike rate during his 33-ball stay.

Next ball, Jennings, one of 12 batsmen to have opened in Tests with Cook since Andrew Strauss retired six years ago, was squared up by the recalled Jasprit Bumrah and nicked to Pant.

The home side made swift progress, scoring at more than five an over to get to 46 without loss at lunch.
