India vs England 3rd Test: At the end of the first-days play, England score was 120/0 after bundling out India for a paltry 78 runs all-out.
England now leads by 42 runs with ten wickets in hand. Hameed 60* and Burns 52* were unbeaten and will continue their innings on day two.
Cricket live score and commentary:
India’s batting was so pathetic that they lost four wickets on the same score of 67 in six balls. Looks like a long day on the field for the Indian cricketers. The second days play starts at 3:30 PM IST.
Batting first a bad choice?
Was winning the toss and batting first was a bad choice? Did Virat Kohli read the wickets properly? These questions remain unanswered.
Whatever is the situation, Indian pacers Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Shami and Shiraj have their task cut-off. Tak wickets at regular intervals and get England out for a reasonable score. If they manage to get a lead of around 350 plus, the match is already lost for India.

Cricinfo.com opined, “Perhaps India felt their bowlers would be able to replicate England’s success in such conditions, particularly after their heroics on the final day at Lord’s, but they began with far less discipline than the England attack had shown.”
