The wicket of Rahul was just what the hosts needed after a well-fought session. Rahul departed at the stroke of lunch and the wicket would give England momentum, not that they need after mammoth first innings lead. Pacer Craig Overton playing his first Test of the series picked up the prized scalp of the India opener. It was unfortunate to see Rahul dismissed as he had got his eye in and was looking set for a big one. He played 54 balls and scored wight runs.

With India trailing, they needed in-form Rahul to stay in the middle. Now the job for India to save the Test becomes more difficult. At lunch on Day 3, India is 34 for one.

Cheteshwar Pujara will join Rohit Sharma after lunch and it is going to be another testing session for India as the English pacers would still be fairly fresh. It would be an interesting session of cricket for fans as India will put in a fight for sure and that is the belief after the Lord’s win.

India 34/1 in 19 overs, trail England (432) 320 runs in Leeds
