Shardul Thakur scored 2nd ever fastest half-century for India as Virat Kohli’s team were bundled out for just 191. Thakur scored 57 but it was Chris Woakes who hogged all the limelight with a four-wicket haul on his comeback.

Ollie Robinson took three wickets while James Anderson and Craig Overton returned with one wicket each.

Resuming the third and final session at 122/6, India lost the wicket of Rishabh Pant (9) pretty early on as the left-handed batsman went for a big shot off the bowling of Chris Woakes, but he only managed to hand a simple catch to Moeen Ali.

Shardul Thakur then joined hands with Umesh Yadav and the former played a counter-attacking inning and England was left searching for answers. Shardul brought up his half-century off just 31 balls in the 60th over and all of a sudden, India gained an upper hand.
