Kohli, Rahane lead India fight back

Kohli, Rahane lead India fight back

They finished scoring 307 runs with four wickets to spare in the second day.

With England 2-0 ahead in the five-match series, Joe Root chose to launch another assault on India's brittle top order after winning the toss and Chris Woakes obliged with three wickets in the morning session to reduce the tourists to 82-3.

Woakes looked the potential game-changer again, having Dhawan caught at slip for 35, trapping Rahul lbw for 23 and tempting Cheteshwar Pujara (14) into a hook on the stroke of lunch which went straight into the hands of Rashid on the boundary. Exactly as in 1959, another of our hottest summers, England had returned from a 4-0 thrashing in Australia and gone 2-0 up against an Indian side that batted feebly in the first two Tests against England's pace bowlers.

On the very first ball of the next over, Bumrah removed Jennings caught behind as well. Pant is the first Indian cricketer to achieve this feat and 12th man to get off the mark in Test cricket with a six.

Pandya made sure that the off-spinner wasn't required at all in the first innings. Pandya was introduced in the 25th over and the 24-year-old immediately made an impact with the wicket of Joe Root, the English skipper, in his very first delivery. In the next over, Broad sent back Ashwin.

England were reeling at 108 for 5 in the 30th over as Stokes' struggle ended with Rahul this time claiming a catch off Mohammed Shami (1/56). His next three wickets came in the space of three balls across the 31st and 33rd over, during which he was on a hat-trick as well. Bowls an inswinger and Pant gets his first catch in Test cricket. Hardik Pandya took a five-wicket hauls as England were bundled out in 38.2 overs giving the vistors a 168-run lead.

When England crashed to 128 for nine they were still two runs short of avoiding the follow on and had lost all nine in 20 miserable overs but at least Jos Buttler showed fight in hitting two sixes in his counter-attacking 39.

Fifties from Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane helped India post over 300 at the end of the first day of the third Test at Nottingham.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane gradually redeemed the disaster; slowly they added 159 runs in the fourth wicket.

Only one team in Test history has come from two down to win a five-Test series and that was Don Bradman's Australians.

England began the extended afternoon session after taking the morning's honours, thanks to three wickets each to Stuart Broad and James Anderson.
