  • Young opener Prithvi Shaw top-scored with 62 for India ‘A’ at the County Ground, but others such as Test specialist Murali Vijay, Mayank Agarwal and skipper Karun Nair failed to get going.
  • Starting the day on 310 for two, the overnight pair of centurion Alastair Cook (154) and Dawid Malan (59) added 35 runs before Cook fell for 180 to Ankit Rajpoot, which ended a 181-run partnership for the third wicket.
  • Siraj was the most successful bowler for India ‘A’, returning figures of 4/79 in 29 overs, while Shahbaj Nadeem had three wickets to his name.
