India reach 124/2 in second innings at stumps on Day 3

England are facing defeat in the third Test at Trent Bridge after a shocking collapse put India in complete control of the match.

India, thus, took an overall lead of 292 runs over England with eight wickets in hand.

England were bowled out for 161 in their first innings in reply to India's 329. Pant, who became the 291st player to play for India, took five catches on his debut which made him the youngest keeper to take five catches in an innings of an global match, eclipsing Chris Read who did it against NZ at Birmingham in 1999 at an age of 20y 325d.

KL Rahul (36) and Shikhar Dhawan (44) were the only two Indian wickets to fall in the second innings. Jos Buttler went into T20 mode knowing England needed some runs, and slammed a quickfire 39 off 32 balls that included three fours and two sixes, to give the English supporters in the crowd something to cheer for.

Ishant Sharma gets the first wicket of the innings and Cook departs on 29.

Woakes never stopped since he came back at Lord's; hit in the deck prior to the batsmen were preparing for lunch of day one. The square of the wicket shots, the cover drives were there to see, Both Kohli and Rahane showed enough patience waiting for the loose deliveries, leaving a lot of deliveries outside the off-stump. Root edged to KL Rahul first ball, and was given out after multiple replays to confirm weather the fielder had taken the catch cleanly.

Tracking the QB responses to Jalen Ramsey's trash talk
He's good! Jalen Ramsey thinks Jared Goff is good! Still, it's better than what Ramsey said about a lot of other quarterbacks. You can't tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones?


Meanwhile, 20-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is expected to replace out-of-form Dinesh Karthik.

He caught Chris Woakes by surprise, much like the all-rounder had to get Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings. He also joined Harbhajan Singh to become the bowler to take fewest balls for a fifer.

Rashid followed in his next over, edging an away swinger to Pant, while Stuart Broad was deceived by a full ball that swing in to trap him in front of the stumps. Kohli's side is 0-2 in the five-match series.

The Indian cricket team had the best day so far in the ongoing Test series as captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane shared a brilliant 159-run partnership, before England clawed their way back in a riveting first day of the third Test match at Trent Bridge here on Saturday.

For England, James Anderson (3/64), Stuart Broad (3/72) and Chris Woakes (3/75) picked up three wickets apiece.
