England on the backfoot after India takes lead of 95 runs
India’s best batsman so far in this Test match, KL Rahul, did had his fair share of luck early in the second session on Day 3 after England captain Joe Root dropped a sitter in slips. However, veteran bowler James Anderson kept bowling in that corridor of uncertainty and eventually, forced the right-hander to nick one that went straight to wicket-keeper Jos Buttler. Rahul played amazing well during his 84-run knock that included 12 boundaries. India’s seam-bowling all-rounder Shardul Thakur was dismissed for a 6-ball duck by Anderson.
While batting virtually with the tailenders, Ravindra Jadeja batted really well to notch up a brilliant half-century at a vital time in the Test match but also lost his wicket after reaching the landmark. However, the turning point of this second session was the application shown with the bat by the Indian pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj adding a total of 46 runs between them. The pair of Siraj and Bumrah stitched a valuable stand of 33 runs for the 11th wicket as India were bowled out for 278 runs in the first innings. However, the visitors have a massive first innings lead of 95 runs that has given them a commanding position in this first Test against England.
