India and England are ready to battle it out on the second day of the third Test in the ongoing five-match series at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. England, who crumbled to a 95-run defeat in the second Test at Lord’s, batted superbly on the opening day of the Test to reach a commanding total of 247 for the loss of two wickets. The highlight on the day was the 158-run stand between Gary Ballance (104*) and Alastair Cook (95). While Zimbabwe-born Ballance reached his third Test century, Cook finally managed to silence his critics by scoring a much needed half-century, falling just five runs short of a well-deserved ton.
