Video of Ollie Robinson sends Rishabh Pant to pavilion

England shed their first blood on the most important 3rd day and Rishabh Pant was sent off as India looked to take the lead in the Tests. The wicket-keeper came in to bat with positive intent and also hit two boundaries with a six, sent off by Ollie Robinson, who bore the brunt of the Pant strike.

Before dismissing him, Pant sent two deliveries for a boundary and a brave six, caught in the hands of Johnny Bairstow

Rishabh Pant quick knock with England

Rishabh Pant left after the fall of Ajinkya Rahane, who made an unforgettable outing after he ran out himself. His 2o-ball 25 came off three fours and a six. He started the third day with KL Rahul batting.

Jimmy Anderson began day operations and took over as soon as Rishab took over Robinson. Later Rishabh Pant, while trying to drive through the off-side, fought back after hitting the ball a little above his bat. Bairstow did the rest of the work by tapping the ball comfortably

At the time of writing, India are 157 runs and 26 runs behind for the loss of 5 wickets. The rain played hide-and-seek, forcing them to stop early in the game. Rahul was unbeaten on 64 and Ravindra Jadeja on 6.

On the second day, India's top four - Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane - were all cheaply dismissed.

James Anderson ducked captain Virat Kohli for the first ball, while Rahane got himself out after a hesitation in decision making. Rohit Sharma got off to a good start by scoring 36 runs in a row, but lost his wicket before lunch.

England were all out for 183 in the first innings after Jaspreet Bumra and Mohammad Shami's brilliant spells.
