Haseeb-Burns century partnership did not work for England
Openers Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns added 100 runs for the first wicket but after the break of this partnership, the Indian bowlers showed the upper hand. England scored 54 runs in the morning session for the loss of two wickets in 27 overs. England started the day with 77 runs without losing a wicket. The fast bowling pair of Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah opened India’s attack.
Shardul got the first success by dismissing Burns
Hameed and Burns kept the Indian bowlers from success in the first half hour. Both the batsmen batted cautiously but also taught a lesson to the bad ball. Burns hit two fours on Umesh. Captain Virat Kohli then gave the ball to Shardul Thakur and Burns hit him for a four and then completed a half-century in 124 balls with two runs and also took the team’s score to 100 runs. Burns, however, returned to the pavilion by catching wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant off Thakur’s next ball. He scored 50 runs in 125 balls with the help of five fours.

Bumrah overtakes Kapil Dev
Bumrah became the fastest Indian fast bowler to complete 100 wickets in Test cricket by bowling Ollie Pope (02) off a fast inbound ball. Bumrah achieved this feat in his 24th Test, surpassing former Indian captain Kapil Dev who touched the figure in 25 Tests. Bumrah also bowled Jonny Bairstow (00) on a yorker in his next over.
Mayank Agarwal runs out Malan
Hameed also completed his half-century in 123 balls with three runs off Ravindra Jadeja. Hameed was lucky on the score of 55 while Jadeja’s delivery was dropped by Mohammad Siraj at mid-on.
David Malan, however, struggled at the crease and was eventually run out for five runs. Hameed plays Jadeja into cover and runs for a run.
Even before Malan reached the crease, Pant uprooted the stumps on a precise throw from Mayank Agarwal. However, Hameed and Root did not allow the Indian bowlers to achieve further success till lunch. Hameed scored 63 runs in 193 balls with the help of 6 fours before being bowled by Jadeja.
Jadeja got India off to a great start in the second session when he bowled Hameed in the third over of the session itself. Hameed released the pitched ball on the leg-stump which uprooted his off-stump while taking a turn. Hameed hit six fours in his 193-ball innings.

Shardul’s amazing with the old ball

Root and Chris Woakes then did not allow the Indian bowlers to achieve success for more than 12 overs. Kohli decided not to take the new ball after 80 overs and handed the old ball to Thakur. Returning to the spell, the first ball of Thakur was played on Root wicket. Root scored 36 runs in 78 balls with the help of three fours.
