India vs England 3rd Test Day 2 live updates

A splendid post-lunch bowling effort from India's seamers left England on the ropes on Sunday, the second day of the third Test. Hardik Pandya claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket while Ishant Sharma grabbed two as England collapsed to 161 all out at tea.

Rahane had moved to 81 when he edged Stuart Broad behind.

Much of the pre-match attention had been focused on Stokes, recalled just days after his acquittal on Tuesday by a court on an affray charge that stemmed from a fight outside a Bristol nightclub in September past year. The host's desperate trial to make them apart was thrived by Stuart Broad and more spectacularly by Cook who outsmart Rahane by a one handed catch at first slip. India were outclassed by England twice - by 31 runs in Edgbaston and innings and 159-runs at Lord's.

It says everything that this was the third time in less than two years that all 10 wickets in an England Test innings have crashed in a single session, this latest debacle following those in Dhaka in 2016 and Auckland earlier this year.

India's captain Virat Kohli reacts as he leaves the pitch.

Rishabh pant receives his Test cap. The edge was taken by Jos Buttler in the slips.

Watch day three of the third Test between England and India, from Trent Bridge, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 10.30am on Monday.

It took the introduction of Woakes, man of the match at Lord's, to improve England's morning.

After a confident innings from the young wicket-keeper batsmen, Pant played a no shot to throw away his wicket. Whereupon the tourists' captain, Kohli, and his vice-captain, Rahane, turned the tide of this series and history. Woakes removed Dhawan, Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara (14) in quick succession as India from 60 for no loss went into the lunch at 82 for 3. After the batting debacle in first two Tests, a collective performance was the order of the day and Kohli-Rahane duo were helped by the fact that openers Shikhar Dhawan (35) and KL Rahul (23) added 60 runs to lay the foundation.

When India surrendered their last five wickets for 22 runs to be bowled out for 329 during the morning session of day two at Trent Bridge, it still felt like a very good total. A high-quality spell of sustained in-swing from both Ishant and Bumrah continued, with Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow hurried onto the back foot.

"Ashwin is a good batsman too, he has been possibly the second best batsman for them so it is not going to be easy to bowl them out".
