Hardik Pandya claimed his maiden five-for in just 29 balls as India seized control of the third Test against England on day two at Trent Bridge after taking all 10 wickets in the afternoon session.

Rahane had moved to 81 when he edged Stuart Broad behind.

Virat Kohli made a superb 97 and Ajinkya Rahane 81 to help the visitors to 307-6 after England won the toss.

Not that the selection of Stokes has cost England the Test and turned Sam Curran into a world-beater but it has clearly disrupted the equilibrium and momentum of a team who had looked so dominant at Lord's without him.

After Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane's match changing 159-run partnership on the previous day, England wasted no time as they bowled out the visitors for 329 early on Day 2.

As well as India competed in the thrilling first Test at Edgbaston, their capitulation in the second at Lord's raised fears the remainder of the series would be one-sided. Pandya's first delivery of the match had Root poke a low catch to Rahul at second slip, and given what any low catch engenders, the decision was taken upstairs by the on-field umpires, with the soft signal being out. But it will take something extraordinary now to stop Kohli's India at least giving themselves a chance to pull off something special at Southampton and the Oval.


Left-hander Rishabh Pant was handed his first cap, while Jasprit Bumrah and Shikhar Dhawan returned to the side, following their embarrassing 159-run innings defeat against England at the Lord's last week.

It was here in Nottingham that South Africa thumped England a year ago to burst the bubble of optimism hanging over Joe Root's new Test reign and now they have been utterly outplayed by India in conditions they should relish.

England's Chris Woakes celebrates. English pacer Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Chris Woakes picked up 3 wickets each, while spinner Adil Rashid bagged the important wicket of India skipper Virat Kohli, who missed his century by 3 runs. A high-quality spell of sustained in-swing from both Ishant and Bumrah continued, with Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow hurried onto the back foot.

After a confident innings from the young wicket-keeper batsmen, Pant played a no shot to throw away his wicket. India ought to have made life miserable for England's openers, both of whom had been struggling for confidence.

The first day's play will start at 11 am local time and 3:30 pm IST.

New Zealand's Mark Craig is the only player in the history of Test cricket to score a six on his first ball. Bowls outside off and knocks of the stumps and Ashwin OUT on 14.
