India vs England 3rd Test Day 2 live updates

Vija yManjrekar Test

Vija yManjrekar Test

But a fourth-wicket stand of 159 between India captain Virat Kohli (97) and his deputy, Ajinkya Rahane (81) revived their innings. On the other hand the Trent Bridge pitch appeared patchy and sported a decent covering of grass, apparently 2mm more than in 2015 when Stuart Broad so famously ran amok.

Prior to reaching the UK, India had a glorious opportunity to defeat two heavyweights in England and Australia in consecutive away Test series.

England's Ben Stokes bowls during the first day of the third cricket test match between England and India at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The duo always kept the scoreboard ticking despite the England bowlers maintaining a good channel. But during his knock, he became the country's highest run-getting Test skipper on foreign shores, surpassing Sourav Ganguly.

Just as England's frustration was beginning to peak, Rahane flashed an edge off Broad, with Alastair Cook somehow clinging on to a fantastic reaction catch at first slip, falling to his left to intercept the ball one-handed. Jimmy Anderson (1/52 in 22 overs) bowled a probing spell but both the batsmen didn't take any unnecessary risk against the senior fast bowler.

Two mystery punters won $50M Powerball jackpot - have you checked your ticket?
Newsagents across the nation had queues out the door on Thursday despite the odds of winning first prize being one in 134 million. The ticket was unregistered, meaning Lott officials have no way of knowing who the mystery victor is or contacting them.

There was still time for a catch to go down as Keaton Jennings spilled Hardik Pandya at third slip after the hosts had taken the new ball but Jos Buttler made no mistake as he got rid of the all-rounder with the final ball of the day for 18.

However, for as much as the ball nipped around, it was often too short or wide to threaten, with Dhawan proactively looking to score. Only Broad's effort after tea, coupled with Cook's stunning catch, began to drag England back into it. However Rahane-Kohli ensured that from lunch to tea, India didn't lose a wicket and added 107 runs in that particular session. They played their shots, ran their singles and twos as India maintained a healthy run-rate of 3.52 pe over throughout the day. England spinner Adil Rashid's selection in English Test side had drawn flak from former players. But credit to India, I thought they played pretty well. Pacers Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami, along with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin are guaranteed to feature in the bowling department.

James Anderson picked the last two wickets in the same over.
