Pacers hand India an 168-run advantage over England

India face a must-win situation as they take on England in the third of the ongoing five-Test series at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from Saturday, August 18. Fourth ball, Pujara dropped a sitter at first slip.

India were 124 for two in their second innings against England at stumps on the second day of the third cricket Test on Sunday.

Shami and Bumrah then shared the new ball, with Ishant surprisingly held back.

After Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane's match changing 159-run partnership on the previous day, England wasted no time as they bowled out the visitors for 329 early on Day 2. Ollie Pope essayed one confident cover drive for four but he was soon gone for 10, tickling Ishant down the leg-side as Pant claimed a good, diving catch. For England, James Anderson (3/64), Stuart Broad (3/72) and Chris Woakes (3/75) picked up three wickets apiece. How long he lasts as a Test cricketer is anyone's guess. Pandya ended with figures of five for 28. Pandya's first delivery of the match had Root poke a low catch to Rahul at second slip, and given what any low catch engenders, the decision was taken upstairs by the on-field umpires, with the soft signal being out. The tension was ratcheted up, and India sensed another opening was not far off. He wasn't able to deliver, either with the bat or with the ball.

Ultimately, the SEC is an independent commission-led agency and the president can not force it to change policies. He said outgoing PepsiCo Inc Chief Executive Indra Nooyi had brought it up to him.

This was a triumph, too, for a young keeper-batsman of vast promise in Rishabh Pant who followed his audacious debut innings featuring a six off his second ball by taking five catches in his weaker suit with the gloves.

After Kohli's 152-ball stay, 20-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant made an assured unbeaten 22 on debut alongside Hardik Pandya, who became James Anderson's 100th Indian test victim to leave the match delicately poised. Instead this has become their second successive Trent Bridge nightmare.

English all-rounder Chris Woakes brought England back into the game by taking three wickets (KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara).

Pandya was not so fortunate two overs later, however, and edged Anderson to Jos Buttler in what turned out to be the final delivery of the day. This was Dhawan's highest score in a Test outside of Asia since July 2016, and he had only himself to blame for throwing away an easy fifty when he charged at Rashid and was stumped. Only MS Dhoni, Mohammad Azharuddin, and Sourav Ganguly have scored more. India back on track and critical times begin for England.
