Watch Ind v Eng first test third day full highlights today from Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot (India), Friday 11th November 2016. England team scored 537 runs all out in 159.3 overs. England’s first innings completed at end of the second-day second session. From the third session of yesterday, India started batting and scored 63 runs in 23 overs with no wicket lost. England’s three batsmen scored their centuries those were JE Root, MM Ali and BA Stokes.
Toss: England & chose bat.
JE Root scored 124, MM Ali scored 117 runs off 213 balls, he completed his excellent innings with the help off thirteen 4s. When his wicket dismissed then it was 99.4 138.3 kph, he doesn’t need any of those catchers! Strange, strange choice of shot, or non-shot, from Moeen. This was angled in towards off stump, maybe a tiny bit of swing in. Shami has been attacking the stumps right through this over. Moeen misjudges the line entirely, leaves the ball alone, and it knocks back his off stump 343/5.
BA Stokes was most runs scorer from England’s first innings with 128 runs those he scored by smashing thirteen 4s and two 6s. JM Bairstow† scored 46 runs off 57 balls and ZS Ansari contributed 32 runs. RA Jadeja took three wickets in thirty overs with 86 runs. Mohammed Shami, UT Yadav, and R Ashwin these three Indian bowlers took six wickets, two wickets each of them.
Now India trail by 474 runs with 10 wickets remaining in the 1st innings. I don’t think Rajkot pitch will change till the end of the final day of this test match because there is still much grass on it but some dry spots are appearing on it that can help spinners in remaining days.
