ENG vs IND (5th Test – Day 3)

Jonny Bairstow seems to be taking himself from one zenith to another one. Three centuries came from his bat in three consecutive Tests, and he scored two centuries in the last two Tests against New Zealand and a century in the third consecutive Test against India.

Bairstow took the helm of the team when England fell into a very bad position because of the astounding power of Indian bowling at Edgbaston in Birmingham. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored his 11th career century in partnership with Ben Stokes and Sam Billings.

England hinted at something good with the help of Johnny Bairstore’s century. But Bairstow could not make his century bigger, and that is why the hosts couldn’t go near India.

On the second day, England finished the game with 84 runs for 5 wickets in their first innings. From there they added another 200 runs on Sunday. In the 11th century of his career, Bairstow scored 106 runs. Captain Ben Stokes scored 25 runs and wicketkeeper Sam Billing scored 36 runs.

Bairstow was dismissed for 106 off 140 balls and caught out by Virat Kohli off Mohammad Shami. He hit 14 4s and 2 sixes. Ben Stokes was dismissed for 25 off 36 balls. He was caught out by Thakur and left the field. He hit 4 fours.

Sam Billings made 36 off 57 balls. He was bowled out by Siraj and returned to the dressing room. He also hit 4 fours. Matthew Potts made 19 runs in the end, and he hit 3 fours and 1 six.

In the end, the English scored 284 runs in 61.3 overs with 4.71 runs per over. England lags behind India. Visitor India got a 132-run lead in the first innings.

Mohammad Siraj took 4 wickets for the Indians. Captain Jasprit Bumrah took 3 wickets, and Mohammad Shami took 2 wickets. Shardul Thakur took 1 wicket.

At the end of the third day of the Edgbaston Test, Jasprit Bumrah’s side added another 125-run lead after losing three wickets with 132 runs in the first innings. Overall, India took a 257-run lead with seven wickets in hand at the end of three days of the match; India is now leading the series with 2-1 score.

In the second innings, after leading by 132 runs, India’s opener Shubman Gill failed to bat, and India lost Gill’s wicket. He made only 4 runs. India lost 1 wicket in 11.5 overs and scored 32 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara, with 18 runs, and Hanuma Bihari, with 6 runs were batting. India had a lead of 164 runs.

Hanuma Bihari, who came down to number three, scored 11 runs. He played a total of 44 balls and hit 1 four. Virat Kohli also could not stay long. He was out for 20 runs. He played 40 balls and hit four fours. India lost 3 wickets for 75 runs.

Rishav Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara did not allow any danger to happen from there. India finished the day with 125 runs for losing 3 wickets with a partnership of 50 runs. Pujara hit a half-century and was unbeaten. Centurion Pant scored 30 runs in the 2nd innings in the previous innings.

The 4th-day game will start at 3:30 pm today.
