INDIA vs ENGLAND: Rain played killjoy again on the third day of the first Test between India and England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. It was a stop-start beginning to proceedings yesterday, with rain arriving as early as the second over. The unwelcome guest was back post-tea, and a steady drizzle prevented any further play.
Showers are predicted again on day 4; however, the forecast is much better than the last two days.
There is less than a 20% chance of rain before 11 am meaning we should hopefully get a timely start. Between 11 am and 7 pm local time, chances of rain are 40%. The temperature is going to be around 17 degrees Celsius.
You could see the wind affecting bowlers’ run-up yesterday. It will be less windy than yesterday. Humidity is going to range between 65-75%. One hopes the rest of the match will be rain-free; otherwise, the game could be headed for a draw.
India resumed batting on day 3, with KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant on the crease. Pant went about his business in his usual way and got out at 25 to a false stroke. Jadeja’s batting has been growing leaps and bounds, and he had a 60-run partnership with Rahul before the Karnataka batsman departed for a well-made 84.
Jadeja was batted with restraint initially but broke free once Rahul got out. He made a well-deserved half-century. Indian tail wagged like never before, and they added a valuable 46 runs for the final two wickets. Jasprit Bumrah was particularly impressive; he added 28 runs to the tally.
Ollie Robinson and James Anderson were the only bowlers amongst the wickets; they picked up five and four wickets, respectively. In reply, England was 25 runs without the loss of any wicket. They still trail the visitors by 70 runs.
