India vs England 3rd Test Day 1: Highlights
India vs England 3rd Test, Day 1 Highlights: India were 99/3 in reply to England’s 112 all out on the opening day of the day-night third Test on Wednesday. At close of play, opener Rohit Sharma was batting on 57 and giving him company was vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on 1.
Shubman Gill (11), Cheteshwar Pujara (0) and skipper Virat Kohli were the three wickets to fall for India.
Earlier, left-arm spinner Axar Patel snared six wickets while Ravichandran Ashwin took three as England collapsed to 112. Zak Crawley (53) was the top scorer for the visitors.
The four-Test series between India and England is currently tied at 1-1 at the halfway stage and Joe Root’s men will need to win the remaining matches to qualify. The task appears a tad simpler for Virat Kohli’s side, with the hosts needing to win at least one Test and avoid defeat in the other.
England Squad: Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Daniel Lawrence, Joe Root(c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes(w), Jofra Archer, Olly Stone, Jack Leach, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Dominic Bess, Zak Crawley
