England vs India 3rd Test: Discussion points from Day One

Kohli misses ton as India fight back in third England Test

It was Pandya who turned out to be the cynosure of all eyes today, registering career-best figures of 5 for 28 to help India bundle out England for 161 in their first innings and give his side the upperhand for the first time in the series. Ishant, who ought to have been given the new ball, squared Alastair Cook up, having the left-hander edge behind.

Hardik Pandya claimed his maiden five-wicket Test haul as India skittled brittle England in the afternoon session to take a firm grip of the third Test on a frenetic day two at Trent Bridge.

The very next ball Jasprit Bumrah struck at the other end, as Keaton Jennings hung his bat out and nicked one. The first is Root, who was decidedly scratchy and then decidedly grumpy upon getting out for 16, convinced that KL Rahul's low catch was grassed.

He caught Chris Woakes by surprise, much like the all-rounder had to get Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings. He had Pope caught behind as well with Rishabh Pant latching on to his third catch of the day.

Ben Stokes, recalled just days after being acquitted of an affray charge on Tuesday following an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September previous year, walked out to a few boos from the crowd. The Karnataka man held the edge at second slip and cupped his ear: there was no questioning this catch.

Granted, this latest sorry session was extended in length as Virat Kohli's resurgent tourists hunted the 10th wicket and Jos Buttler briefly counterattacked from his convention-defying role as a specialist No 7. England had the ball swinging at once. In his next over, Broad bowled R. Ashwin with a huge in-swinger.

While Chris Woakes scalped the first three Indian wickets, England struggled to scalp wickets in the middle phases as Kohli and Rahane put up a 159-run partnership to push England on the backfoot.

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.

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

BOWLED! Stuart Broad gets the first wicket of the Day 2 after Rishabh Pant chops it back onto the stumps.

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