The ‘no self-doubt’ confidence of Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli hasn’t really percolated through to the rest of the players
India face a must-win situation as they take on England in the third of the ongoing five-Test series at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from Saturday, August 18.
England motored to the friendliest of Test venues seeking an unassailable 3-0 lead. And bowlers magnificently built on the steel shown by the batsmen.
All the wickets fell in the second session, with England collapsing from 54-0 to 128-9 as allrounder Hardik Pandya took 5-28. It has left the visitors in a great position to push for victory and being their revival in the five-match series.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya led the Indian onslaught and picked his maiden fifer in the longest format of the game, which came in just 29 balls.
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. Woakes rattled India's upper batting order by removing Shikhar Dhawan (35), Lokesh Rahul (23) and Cheteshwar Pujara (14) in a brilliant spell of seam-up pace bowling. Pant was the first to fall, five overs into the day, dragging Stuart Broad onto his stumps for 24.
After four back-to-back failures in England, Rahane finally looked good with the bat as he scored a fluent 81 runs and added 159 runs stand with Virat Kohli. India could add only 22 runs to their overnight score as they were 329 all out in 7.4 overs on a damp, overcast morning. The pre-lunch session was dominated both by India and England. 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 awful form.

Dahwan takes a single off the first ball. OUT.
Admittedly, the overcast conditions made batting hard, but England´s top-order problems run deeper than bad luck with the weather.
England playing XI: Keaton Jennings, Alastair Cook, Joe Root (c), Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.
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. They finished scoring 307 runs with four wickets to spare in the second day.
