Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s live coverage of the third day of the fifth Test between India and England from Edgbaston in Birmingham.
14.41: It will be Shami and Bumrah, vs Bairstow and Stokes. Former English captain Nasser Hussain feels this batch of Dukes balls seems to go soft pretty quickly, and then when they go soft, they go out of shape. So, if Bairstow and Stokes can get a partnership goes, England could consider mounting a fightback.
14.30: Welcome back. The sun’s out in Birmingham. Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes are at the crease. They have conjured magic in the recent past. Can they do it again? Indian pacers are hunting in a pack. Siraj is yet to get a longish crack at the English batters. But Bumrah and Shami, and the latter in particular, have been impeccable and relentless in their line and length. England trail by 332 runs.
HOW DAY 2 PANNED OUT
Ravindra Jadeja resumed Day 2 on 83 and reached his third Test hundred from 183 balls. Stuart Broad bowled the most expensive over in Tests, conceding 35 runs in an incredible morning session. England closed on 84-5 in reply to India’s 416- REPORT
India has never won a Test at Edgbaston, losing six and drawing one on the 1986 tour.
Bumrah is the first fast bowler to captain India’s Test team since Kapil Dev in 1987.
