Who Said What, England vs India 2018, 3rd Test, 2nd Day

Virat Kohli passes on instructions during nets at Trent Bridge

Pandya's 28-ball effort was the second-quickest five-wicket haul for India in Test cricket after Harbhajan Singh took a fiver off 27 balls against West Indies in 2006.

Harbhajan Singh is the only other bowler to take five wickets in fewer balls for India than Hardik Pandya's 29 balls on Sunday.

NOTTINGHAM: Hardik Pandya took five wickets and debutant wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant claimed five catches before India´s batsmen piled on the agony for England in the third Test at Trent Bridge.

India were 124/2 at stumps with Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli on unbeaten 33 and 8 respectively.

England, who lead the five-Test series 2-0, were left to pick over an astonishing day which began well when they quickly picked up India's four remaining first-innings wickets.

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.


But, the shaky England batting unit was brought to its knees in one of the finest demonstrations of consistent seam bowling by an Indian team. Bowls an inswinger and Pant gets his first catch in Test cricket. There was no inkling of what was to come as Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were not consistent and let England reach 46/0 at lunch. Generally I try to seam it as well, but when you're trying to swing it, you tend to bowl full and driveable balls. Coming to the 3rd Test, Kohli and Shastri will aim to get team combination right with the most awaited change likely to be the inclusion of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might replace Dinesh Karthik, who is in bad form. There on, Pandya ripped through England's credentials that its batting runs deep.

With England having back to back wins in the first two Test matches of the series, captain Joe Root sent the visitors to bat first after winning the toss.

It's all over for England's Ben Stokes as team-mate Jonny Bairstow watches on.

On-field official Marais Erasmus gave the soft signal of out after deciding Rahul had caught the ball low at slip and TV umpire Aleem Dar saw no conclusive evidence to overturn the call, much to Kohli's delight.

Instead, Bumrah and Shami were off-target, either dropping the ball short or straying down the pads, as Cook and Jennings got away, finding the boundary six times in total. The ball was swinging in the morning but we didn't get wickets, so Ishant and I tried to stifle the runs and see what happens.
