Huge gate! Umesh justifies his choice with this wicket because he finds a man in uniform, Ruth! The pacer serves at an angle to break through the England captain’s defense. Departure on route 21. England: 52/3 (15.3 overs).

As expected, ever since Root (12*) has stepped onto the pitch, England have looked threatening. The skipper smacks Umesh for two fours and his partner Malan (12*) joins in on the act too against Bumrah. ENG: 29/2 (10 overs)

Gone! Bumrah with the breakthrough! Burns is sent back to the pavilion early on after being bowled and minutes later, Hameed follows his opening partner after being caught behind by Pant. Bright start by India. ENG: 6/2 (4 overs)

WICKET! Umesh Yadav is the last man to depart, caught by Bairstow! A one-handed grab from Bairstow and India have been bowled out for 191.

Shardul Thakur’s entertaining knock comes to an end on 57. Woakes gets another, and it is a vital one in the context of the game. A sustained, standing ovation after a lower-order special from Shardul Thakur. He has done the job for India. We were wondering sometime back that will India reach 200 and Shardul has ensured that they do! IND- 190/8

A big inside edge has saved him – on a good length and angling into the right-hander, he fell across on the clip and if not for some bat on it, would have been a dead duck. IND- 160/7

That’s the end of the second session… another that has gone England’s way. India lost Jadeja early on and just when things started to settle down a bit, Kohli lost his wicket yet again after a half-century. Afterwards, Rahane’s poor form continued as he was dismissed by Overton. Pant (4*) and Thakur (4*) are in the middle now. IND: 122/6 (51 overs)

Robinson gets the big fish just before the tea break! Kohli departs on 50 in a very familiar fashion… nicking one behind to the wicketkeeper. The pacer finally gets his length right, angling it in on a fourth stump line and then straightening it just a fraction. Kohli tries to work it on his leg-side but ends up with an inside edge to Bairstow. IND: 105/5 (42.5 overs)
