A disciplined batter helped India to score 124/2 in its second inning, while 292 points took advantage of stumps on the second day of the third Test against England in Trent Brige on Sunday. Cheteshwar Pujara (33) and captain Virat Kohli (8) were in the fold when referees had chased the bail for the day. For England, Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes each chipped a wicket in the last session. The day began with bowlers in England finishing the first innings of India for 329 just before lunch. Ajinkya Rahane (81) and skipper Virat Kohli (97) shone with the bat and helped India to book a challenging score. After the second day to resume six by six, the Indian batsmen of lower order – Ravichandran Ashwin (14) did not offer Ishant Sharma (1 not), Mohammed Shami (3) and Jasprit Bumrah (0) – did not make a substantial contribution to the score. Bashingers of the evening, Rishabh Pant, succeeded only to add two points to his score before returning to the pavilion. (LIVE SCORECARD)

14:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of day 3 of the third test at Trent Bridge.
In the club, England started their turns steadily. The hosts were 46/0, trailing 283 runs during lunch. England-openers Alastair Cook Aand Keaton Jennings have tickled their fingers and made sure they had lunch without losing a wicket. Cook faced 30 balls and hit three limits, while Jennings played 25 deliveries and reached the same number of limits. But after lunch England struggled with the turning of Indian bolsters.
Hardik Pandya & # 39; s 5/28 broke the back of the English batting order when the hosts were bundled for 161 in their first innings. India rode a brilliant bowling game because the entire English batsman was wrapped after only adding 115 runs in the second session of the second day.
Apart from Pandya, pacers Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah scaled a pair of wickets, each scoring 32 and 37 points respectively, while Mohammed Shami took one. Jos Buttler was the top scorer for the hosts with his 39 runs, while openers Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings had chips with 29 and 20 runs respectively.
In the last session, Indian batsmen saw their overall advantage swell. Openers Shikhar Dhawan (44) and Lokesh Rahul (36) gave the steady start. But just as things looked good in the middle, Rahul was sent back to the pavilion. He was clean-bowled by Ben Stokes. Soon, after adding 61 runs with Pujara, Dhawan was also fired by spinner Adil Rashid when the scoreboard 111 read aloud. But Kohli and Pujara then played wisely and without losing their wickets and closed the day by taking their lead. (Play fantasy league and win cash every day)
