England were in a very secure position as they declared their innings at 569 for seven on Day Two of the third Test against India at Southampton. Big knocks from Alastair Cook, Gary Ballance, Ian Bell, and Jos Buttler helped England pile on the runs.

Jos Buttler scored a fifty on Test debut in the third Test between India and England at Southampton, thereby becoming only the eighth English wicketkeeper-batsman to reach the landmark on Test debut. After a fidgety start, Buttler overcame his nerves to compile an aggressive half-century. The innings came at a time when England were struggling to score quickly.

Ian Bell was dismissed for 167, caught by Pankaj Singh off Bhuvneshwar Kumar, moments after Jos Buttler celebrated a fifty on Test debut in the third Test between India and England at Southampton. Earlier, Bell helped England to 452 for five, as he scored his 21st Test hundred and fourth against India. He brought up his ton with a six and followed it up with a couple of fours and another six off the next three balls to accelerate an otherwise slow day for England.

Earlier, Moeen Ali was once again dismissed trying to pull a short ball and was caught very well by Ajinkya Rahane, diving across the fielder at first slip. This was another failure by Moeen to deal with a short ball, and another wicket for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. After being largely lackluster throughout the day, Bhuvneshwar had earlier produced an innocuous delivery outside off stump, but Joe Root poked at it and produced the edge to wicketkeeper MS Dhoni.

Brief scores:

England 569 for 7 decl. (Alastair Cook 95, Gary Ballance 156, Ian Bell 167, Jos Buttler 87; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3 for 101, Ravindra Jadeja 2 for 153) vs India.
