India pile on agony against England

India pile on agony against England

India paceman Ishant Sharma removed Keaton Jennings (13) with the fifth ball of the day and fellow opener Alastair Cook (17) in his next over, both to catches behind the wicket.

Hardik Pandya was the star performer in the first innings as he scalped five wickets.

England captain Joe Root chased a wide delivery from Bumrah and edged to Lokesh Rahul at second slip for 13.

England's travails were compounded by the loss of wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow with a broken finger.

"I'm getting closer I think", said Buttler. But the duo ensured that no wicket was lost in the first session. Same was the case with Cheteshwar Pujara who scored 72 in the second one after a long pause on the runs in the recent past.

It was a welcome return to form for Pujara, who averaged just 14 while playing for Yorkshire earlier this season. Could he score runs here against the swinging and seaming ball? I was very confident that I was up for a big one.

That was something of a positive end to a hard day for England, who dropped both Kohli and Pujara and lost wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow to a fractured finger.

Anderson, whose duels with Kohli have been a feature of this series, buried his head in his hands in despair after the ball went for four. Although this is Buttler's 23rd Test, it is only the fifth match of his second coming - if you will - in Test cricket and he admitted that, as he approached the milestone, his thoughts had turned to the times he had thought his Test career was over.

India crossed 200 in the 63rd over with Kohli and Pujara bringing up their 100-run partnership off 270 balls.

England assistant coach Paul Farbrace has asked his top batsmen to take a cue from Indian skipper Virat Kohli and show guts and gumption in the third Test here. However, in countries like Australia, South Africa and England the bouncy pitches, the players are accustomed to catching the ball with the reverse cup fingers. I've learnt a lot.

Kohli was out shortly afterwards, lbw to Woakes after missing a legside flick against the all-rounder.

"The way I batted in this innings, I felt that whatever I was working on in the nets, it came along".

Falls: 1-60 (Rahul), 2-111 (Dhawan), 3-224 (Pujara), 4-281 (Kohli), 5-282 (Pant), 6-329 (Rahane), 7-349 (Shami).

Ashwin had a good contest with Stokes, but it was clearly visible that his pivot while bowling was being hampered by the hip issue.

There was some late resistance from Stuart Broad (20) and Adil Rashid (30 not out) but, with the sun setting, Bumrah sent pace ace Broad back to the pavilion.
