Indian skipper MS Dhoni and the Indian team will have had a sleepless night after a dismal batting performance especially after the brilliance shown at Lord’s in the 2nd Test Match. India has lost 4 wickets in their chase of mammoth total of 445 runs.
England came out all guns blazing in the second innings and smashed the Indian bowlers all over the park to continue their dominance.
India, chasing 445 runs for victory, lost Murali Vijay (12) to a silly run out. Vijay and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan (37) went for a dangerous single and Stuart Broad was at hand to hit the stumps directly with an underarm throw. India had barely come to terms with Vijay’s dismissal when Cheteshwar Pujara (2) edged an innocuous Moeen Ali delivery to Chris Jordan at slips.
Dhawan and Delhi teammate Virat Kohli (28) stabilised things for a while with a 51-run stand for the third wicket, giving India some hope. But just as things were looking up for the visitors another part-time spinner, Joe Root, got the better of Dhawan to send him back to the pavilion.
Inexplicably for the Indians, it was Moeen Ali who struck again as Kohli feathered an edge into the waiting hands of wicketkeeper Jos Buttler.
