England played a decent first session despite losing two wickets. Rory Burns got out after scoring fifty while Dawid Malan was run out when Haseeb Hameed called for a non-existing single. Meanwhile, Hameed was dropped by Mohammed Siraj off Ravindra Jadeja.

However, the post-lunch session was some serious fightback by Indian bowlers. Ravindra Jadeja, first removed well-set Hameed when he was batting on 63. Jadeja beat Hameed’s defence as the ball crashed into the stumps.

Jasprit Bumrah bowled a killer spell where he removed Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow with some fine reverse swing. The ball that Bumrah bowled to Bairstow to dismiss him for a duck was a brute of a ball. The ball came in while in the air and yorked Bairstow to make a mess of his stumps.

Bumrah and the rest of the Indian team went up in jubilation as this opened a floodgate for them.

Earlier, Shardul Thakur removed well-set Rory Burns who notched up his fifty a ball before. Burns and Hameed scored 100 runs for the opening wicket and took England to a great start in their pursuit of 368 runs. Shardul bowled a beautiful ball which seemed away after pitching.
