England v India: Nottinghamshire to refund fans

India vs England Test cricket

India vs England Test cricket

India will have to return on Wednesday to complete what will surely be a memorable overseas win. Then, Pope was out caught off Shami, with Virat Kohli leaping in front of Rahul to finish a fabulous diving catch. Just a little longer.

Instead England slumped to 66 for four after resuming on 23 without loss - the 31st occasion in their past 62 Test innings since 2016 that they had lost their fourth wicket having scored 100 or fewer runs.

It is but a minor irritation.

This was an essential knock, as trailing 0-2, India had made a strong comeback at Nottingham.

Buttler, recalled by England for the series against Pakistan at the start of the summer, was the more positive of the two and reached his maiden Test century after tea.

It came with the new ball, and Jasprit Bumrah.

Buttler departed when he left a delivery from Bumrah that jagged back and trapped him lbw.

Someone who views sport as a metaphor for life.

And Boro are thought to be "leading the charge" for the experienced attacker, with a loan-to-buy deal an option. A "deal in principle" has also been reached between Middlesbrough and Everton for midfielder Mo Besic.

Out walked Bairstow, with a fractured finger, and Bumrah deceived him with a ripper first ball. He was bowled first ball, Bumrah striking the top of off-stump with a fine delivery.

Bumrah's removal of Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes in three overs of raw pace and wild movement rearranged the entire tone of the session, and when Hardik Pandya ended Stokes' 187-ball effort the end appeared near. He along with Stokes batted with great caution to help England stall India.

However, much to everybody's surprise Stuart Broad and Adil Rashid resisted the Indian attack who came all guns blazing. Bumrah got rid of Broad, but he could not claim a sixth wicket.

The host had emerged unscathed from nine potentially nasty overs late on the third evening, but any dreams of a miracle were quickly shattered. Ishant Sharma took only five balls to give India their first breakthrough. "We were just trying to get one wicket, not to look too far ahead". In his next over, Ishant accounted for Alastair Cook in similar fashion, the 11th time he had dismissed the batsman.

Kohli too the catch on the first delivery of the 26th over when Pope edged one to the second slip off Shami. India's catching had been flawless till that point.

Buttler, after being dropped on one by wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, was largely untroubled. Two more wickets to go for India.

Bumrah insisted India remained positive even when Buttler and Stokes were well set.

"It doesn't matter (if we win on day four or five)".
