7:11 pm IST: When it looked like India might have a steady passage of play, Stuart Broad comes up with a top delivery. Draws Ajinkya Rahane in to a drive off a pitched up delivery on the fifth stump. That was a set up. A ball earlier, Broad had pitched it back on a scrambled seam that straightened after pitching. Rahane was beaten thoroughly. Next ball, Rahane’s eyes would have lit seeing the full delivery and that was a mistake. Edge taken by Keaton Jennings. India 35/3
