It gave India a massive 168-run lead going into their second innings, and plenty of time to put themselves on the road to victory. English pacer Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Chris Woakes picked up 3 wickets each, while spinner Adil Rashid bagged the important wicket of India skipper Virat Kohli, who missed his century by 3 runs. They played their shots, ran their singles and twos as India maintained a healthy run-rate of 3.52 pe over throughout the day. They finished with 124/2, with an overall lead just 8 short of 300.
Resuming at overnight score of 307 for six, the remaining four Indian batsmen could add just 22 runs in 7.5 overs as England bowled out the visitors in 94.5 overs.
Pant, who became India's 291st Test player, claimed the feat by taking the catches of Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid in England's first innings. It needed Ishant Sharma to set the turn of events in motion.
Jürgen Klopp gives green light to Ragnar Klavan exit
The Spaniard was once again asked about Klopp's comments recently, and he responded by teasing the manager for his record in cup finals.
He could only manage 10 before an edge off paceman Mohammed Shami flew waist-high to Rahul.
Delhi's wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant on Saturday (18 August) made his Test debut for India. After drinks break though, things changed as Woakes bowled a fuller length and started troubling the batsmen immediately. Pant, who became the 291st player to play for India, took five catches on his debut which made him the youngest keeper to take five catches in an innings of an worldwide match, eclipsing Chris Read who did it against NZ at Birmingham in 1999 at an age of 20y 325d. England had the ball swinging at once. Cook OUT for 29 after Cheteshwar Pujara DROPS his catch in the slips. The second catch for Pant as Bumrah bowls outside off. Bumrah OUT for 20. And Pandya still had more up his sleeve. It gave Pandya his first ever fifer in worldwide cricket, and he celebrated by showing the ball to a generous Nottingham crowd that was still coming to terms with that extraordinary spell. He would feel more dejected because Rashid was the weakest link in the England attack leaking runs with rank long hops.
When England were all out for 161, having lost all ten wickets in the afternoon session for 115, only Buttler could really look back at his work with any satisfaction, top-scoring with 39, but even his innings, coming off just 32 balls with a couple of sixes, was a flight of desperation, left to chance his arm with the tail. Bumrah strikes and gets caught behind. Had the Indian fielder been a little agiler on the field, they could have obstructed a few runs. Dhawan and Pujara have been absolutely dominant since Rahul's dismissal, and England looking completely out of sorts at the moment. India is constantly leaking runs and their generosity has actually helped the hosts get runs on the board.
