However, the Indian openers, Rohit Sharma and Jaiswal thwarted their efforts, batting resolutely and ending Day 3 at 40 without loss. As the fourth day dawned, Rohit and Jaiswal continued to frustrate the English bowlers, finding boundaries at regular intervals. Even James Anderson, usually dependable, was taken for runs, with Rohit launching him for a six early on.

With the pressure mounting, England skipper Ben Stokes turned to Joe Root’s off-spin, hoping for a change in fortunes. The move paid dividends as Root struck in his first over, inducing an edge off Jaiswal’s bat.

However, it was James Anderson’s stunning catch that made the breakthrough possible. Positioned at backward point, Anderson lunged forward to grasp the ball inches above the ground, sending Jaiswal back to the pavilion.
