Jasprit Bumrah finally scalps the major wicket of Joe Root. Short delivery by Bumrah which Joe Root fails to defend & gets beaten by the lack of bounce. He got hit on the back pack in front of off-stump. Finally India got the crucial wicket of Joe Root! England 101/5, lead India by 342 runs.
Earlier on Day 3, Rishabh Pant’s spectacular 91 runs & Cheteshwar Pujara’s 73 runs helped India to recover from a below average score of 73 runs for 4 wickets down but still India couldn’t save their wickets & were reduced to 257 for 6 wickets down, thanks to brilliant bowling by Dom Bess who scalped 4 wickets for 55 runs including crucial wickets of Virat Kohli & Ajinkya Rahane. India were 257/6 at stumps in response to England’s huge innings of 578 runs. On Day 4, India will be looking to at least level up their scores with England to avoid terrific defeat on their home ground. Batsmen are on the crease to resume hosts innings whereas visitors best bowlers are on the crease to wrap up India’s innings as early as possible. The action is on with both the teams looking forward to deliver their best performance.
