Summary

  • NOTTINGHAM, England, Aug 19 (Reuters) – India routed England on a dramatic afternoon at Trent Bridge as Hardik Pandya took five wickets, including one with his first delivery, to dismiss the home side for 161 and breathe new life into a rollercoaster series on Sunday.
  • All 10 wickets went down in the session as England, who won the first two tests in the best-of-five series, conceded a first innings deficit of 168.
  • But the bowlers knew that, like England’s attack in the morning when India’s remaining four wickets fell cheaply to see them bowled out for 329, balls pitched on the right length found instant success.
  • With England on 56, Alastair Cook was first to depart for 29, caught behind off a probing delivery from Ishant Sharma, with his partner Keaton Jennings following next ball when Jasprit Bumrah squared him up horribly.
  • From that moment, England were always fighting a rearguard action, with Ollie Pope edging down the leg side before Pandya had captain Joe Root caught by Lokesh Rahul’s fingertips at slip.
