England v India: third Test, day one

The Indian batsman have struggled to make an impact apart from Kohli

The in-out fields allowed Buttler to take strike for up to five balls in an over, and England could pick up 33 runs for the last wicket before Buttler miscued a big hit off Bumrah to long-on.

After tea, Rahane had moved on to 57 when Anderson just failed to hold what would have been a spectacular catch at backward point following a flashing edge off Woakes. Ben Stokes has cleared by the court in the Bristol brawl and will join the team at Trent Bridge.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane batted brilliantly and stitched a stunning 159-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

Instead it was England's less heralded all-rounder Woakes, centurion and man of the match in the second test win at Lord's, who took centre stage.

If that raised hopes of an overdue display of resilience and at least parity on first innings then they were dispelled in a shambolic extended session that epitomised the enduringly brittle state of England's Test batting.

Captain Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri have come under fire as there have been some questionable selection calls and assessment of the conditions at both Edgbaston and Lord's.

But debutant wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant (22 not out), was undaunted, the left-handed batsman scoring his first Test runs in style when, to just his second ball, the 20-year-old left-hander went down the pitch to drive Rashid for six. First, he had Root caught at second slip with Rahul getting his fingers under the ball in time for the TV umpire to rule in his favour. After the batting debacle in first two Tests, a collective performance was the order of the day and Kohli-Rahane duo were helped by the fact that openers Shikhar Dhawan (35) and KL Rahul (23) added 60 runs to lay the foundation.

He also joined an elite club comprising of Zaheer Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to become the third bowler to register a fifer at Trent Bridge.

England's Chris Woakes celebrates. Rahane's fine knock of 81 (131 balls) came to an end abruptly.

India have an overall lead of 292 runs over England with eight wickets in hand. Shami tosses up the length delivery and Broad gets underneath it. Shami OUT on 3.

"Ashwin is a good batsman too, he has been possibly the second best batsman for them so it is not going to be easy to bowl them out".

The first day's play will start at 11 am local time and 3:30 pm IST. 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.
