India lead by 292 runs after a superb spell from Hardik Pandya on Day 2

Indian cricket team put up a dominating show on the second day of the third Test against England at Trent Bridge to seize control. An all-round effort saw India extend their lead to 292 runs by the time stumps were drawn on Sunday.

England won the opening session after removing the last four India batsmen for just 22 runs and then taking lunch at 46/0. However, the second session was all about India bowlers, especially Hardik Pandya. In a six-over spell, the allrounder went through the England batting to claim a maiden five-for in Test cricket.

England collapsed to 161-all out after being 54/0 at one stage. Rishabh Pant continued to enjoy a memorable match after becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to claim five dismissals in debut innings. The batsmen extended India’s domination with the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul raising a 60-run stand. By the time the play was called off, India had reached 124/2 with Cheteshwar Pujara (33*) and captain Virat Kohli (8*) still batting.
