Summary

  • Nottingham – Hardik Pandya took five wickets and debutant wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant held five catches before India’s batsmen piled on the agony for England in the third Test at Trent Bridge.
  • This was the second time this year that England had lost all 10 wickets inside a session of Test cricket following an embarrassing 58 all out against New Zealand in Auckland in March.
  • Next ball, Jennings, one of 12 batsmen to have opened in Tests with Cook since Andrew Strauss retired six years ago, was squared up by Jasprit Bumrah and nicked to Pant.
  • England captain and star batsman Joe Root (16) then edged all-rounder Pandya’s first ball low to KL Rahul at second slip.
  • But when play ended in bright sunshine, England needed to surpass the record fourth innings score to win a Test at Trent Bridge, their own 284 for six against New Zealand in 2004, to achieve an improbable success.
