    And that’s stumps on day two. What a day for India and for Hardik Pandya and for Rishabh Pant and for, well you get the drift. India take a massive 292-run lead over England, finishing day two at 124/2. Shikhar Dhawan 43, KL Rahul 36, Cheteshwar Pujara 33*. That’s India’s top three. Pandya claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in a super spell that broke England. 5/28 in his six as England were skittled out for 161. The big lead means if England hope to win this match, they have to stitch together a record chase at Trent Bridge.

    So, India’s lead right now is 290. This means if England are thinking of winning at Trent Bridge they will have to make the highest-ever fourth innings score in a win. There have been only three instances of successful 200+ chases at Trent Bridge. The highest being 284/6 by England against New Zealand in 2004. Tough ask

    WICKET! Adil Rashid has Shikhar Dhawan stumped for 44. India 114/2, lead England by 282 runs. Beautiful bowling by Rashid. He has outfoxed the Indian opener with a well-disguised wrong ‘un. Dhawan runs down the track without reading the variation, is deceived in flight first and then tries to defend it. But to his bad luck, it’s a googly, turning away from his blade. Bairstow does the stumping easily. Shikhar misses out on his maiden fifty in Tests in England.

    Shikhar Dhawan would love this

    DROPPED! Chris Woakes had the ball nipping away at seam to Shikhar Dhawan but the edge is grassed by Alastair Cook at first slip. Straighforward chance and Dhawan survives. He moves to 35 off 51 balls. Pujara is on 25 off 26. India 97/1, lead England by 264 runs

    Adil Rashid brought in to the attack now and there that long hop. Cheteshwar Pujara rocks back and guides it to the third man boundary for a four and the punches one straight down the ground for another four. India 90/1, lead England by 254

    WICKET! Top delivery this from Ben Stokes to get rid of KL Rahul for 36. Full delivery on the off stump and Rahul goes for the drive, does not move his feet much. The ball pitches and seams in ever so slightly to take the inside edge of Rahul’s bat. And the ball rattles the timber. First one for England. India 60/1, lead England by 227 runs

    This is the first time since 1986 that India have managed two 50-run opening stands in a Test on English soil

  • 9:54 PM IST

    It’s ODI mode for India – 50-run stand up in as many delvieries. India motoring along quite well here. India 50/0. Dhawan 19*, Rahul 31*

  • 9:46 PM IST

    England clearly rattled after that Hardik Pandya spell. Conditions are favouring England, but the England bowlers have not shown the discipline. Easy runs on the offing and both Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul are capitalising. India 37/0 in 7. Rahul is on 27, Dhawan on 10

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 3rd Test at Trent Bridge between India and England.

India finished day one at 307 for six riding on 97 from Virat Kohli and 81 from Ajinkya Rahane. This was after openers Shikhar Dhawan (35) and KL Rahul (23) laid a good foundation with a 60-run stand before Kohli and Rahane combined for 159 runs for the fourth wicket.

Chris Woakes picked the first three wickets to fall and Adil Rashid prized out Kohli. James Anderson finished the day with one wicket – making him only the second bowler after Muttiah Muratharan to take 100 wickets against India.

Overall it was an even day. England edged the first session, while India won the second with their first wicketless session of the series. The third was shared by both the teams.

All this helped India end Saturday in a very good position, and if they bat out the morning session on Sunday, their total will have turned genuinely intimidating. The forecast for day two in Nottingham is for heavier clouds, which will encourage India should Pant and the lower order score quickly in the first session.
