Pandya rips England apart with five

  • England captain Joe Root right speaks with coach Trevor Bayliss as Ben Stokes walks to the nets at training during the

A nod should go to 20-year-old Rishabh Pant amid a fittingly breathless debut too, striking his second ball in Test cricket for six on day one during a promising 24 and, after a gobby send-off from Stuart Broad on the second morning, becoming the third wicketkeeper in history to hold five catches in his first innings behind the stumps.

The hosts have dropped Sam Curran, who won the man of the match at Edgbaston, to accommodate Ben Stokes after the all-rounder returned to the squad after being cleared of affray charges.

The vice-captain reckoned India's performance on the day was good but lamented the late wicket of Hardik Pandya.

Bumrah, playing his first match of the series, dismissed Jennings the same way with the very next ball to spark a disappointing and familiar collapse.

Openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul ensured India maintained their dominance over England in the evening session, sharing an opening stand of 60 before Rahul was bowled by Stokes.

But trying to hook Pandya on eight, he got a top edge and Pant, going down the legside, changed direction and lept back to his right before holding a brilliant one-handed catch.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (0/3) went off the field for a short time owing to a stiff hip, but he recovered enough to return to the field. First, he had Root caught at second slip with Rahul getting his fingers under the ball in time for the TV umpire to rule in his favour.

Stokes, in a written statement given to police after he had been arrested, said he had acted in self-defence when punching Mr. Ali and Mr. "I chose to intervene and asked Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale to stop abusing Kai and William".

Pandya wasn't done just yet.

The second is Bairstow, whose five centuries to date have all come in the first innings of a Test, and is far more talented than an average of 39.

Hardik Pandya shone with the ball for India with figures of five for 28. He added 33 runs for the last wicket with Anderson before holing out off Bumrah in the deep.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane gradually redeemed the disaster; slowly they added 159 runs in the fourth wicket.

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

England motored to the friendliest of Test venues seeking an unassailable 3-0 lead.

Day 1, report: Kohli looked poised to mark the first test for 63 years in England to start on a Saturday with a serene ton until Adil Rashid's spin beat him, but India's champion batsman did most to guide them to 307-6 by close on a fascinating first day.
