Opting to bat after winning a crucial toss, Joe Root’s men once again looked clueless against the spin of Patel.
Patel picked up for 6/38 in 21.4 overs as the visitors lost four wickets in the opening session before falling apart in the second.
Opener Zak Crawley was England’s top scorer with a breezy 53-run knock that came off 84 balls before he was trapped LBW by Patel.

With 6/38, Patel in the second Test match of his career – at his home ground, became the first Indian spinner to take a five-wicket haul in a day & night Test match.
