India dominated the second of the third Test at Trent Bridge after bowling out England for 161 in their first innings and then taking a commanding lead of 292 runs at the close of play. Hardik Pandya with his maiden five-for is the star of the show as England succumbed from 46/0 (at lunch) to 161/10 (at tea). With conditions favouring swing bowling Pandya along with Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah picked up wickets at regular intervals to put India on top.  Only once in their 524 previous Tests have India lost a Test after taking a 100+ first innings lead. So things are definitely looking up for Virat Kohli and his men. Earlier, after a delayed start due to a slight drizzle, England dismissed India for 329 runs with two wickets each for seamers James Anderson and Stuart Broad. An intriguing day 3 awaits us all.

Fair point. Indian bowlers going for too much it seems. Putting plenty into it already but no dividends yet. Becuase of the over reliance, runs flowing cheaply after five overs. Extras going away too.
