India pile on runs at Trent Bridge

Hardik Pandya,Harbhajan Singh,Michael Holding

India declared their second innings at 352/7, setting a target of 521 runs for England to win the third Test with two days remaining at Trent Bridge here on Monday.

Earlier, starting at the overnight score of 124 for 2, India had ideal conditions for batting on a humid and warm day and Kohli and Pujara looked to grind and play for time with no hurry whatsoever. Resuming the session at 194/2, Pujara and Kohli started the session with some beautifully crafted shots before Pujara was dismissed by Stokes.

Root was first to go, just hanging his bat out to a wide delivery as Rahul caught another one at second slip. It was not until the 41st over that England had their first success, with the recalled Ben Stokes getting Pujara to edge a routine chance to Cook for his first fifty of the series.

Kohli was dismissed three runs short of a hundred in the first innings of the third Test but he made up for the heartbreak with a sizzling century in the second innings.

India Jasprit Bumrah broke the backbone of the English batting line-up, scalping five wickets in his 29 overs, while Ishant Sharma chipped in with two wickets.

Pujara faced 208 balls, including 19 fours, and put on 113 with Kohli.

440- Virat Kohli's aggregate in this series, which is the highest by an India captain in a Test series in England.

Buttler was pressed into service as a replacement wicket-keeper after Bairstow failed to gather a swinging Anderson delivery by Pujara and took a painful blow on the tip of his left middle finger.

"I don't think he does a lot with the ball", said Holding. "That comes down to two things concentration not being good enough, or confidence".

The star batsman was still on his tea score of 93 not out when his edged drive off an outswinger from Anderson, armed with the new ball, burst through Jennings's hands in the gully. He almost got out to James Anderson when his edged drive off an outswinger from the England medium-pacer, armed with the new ball, burst through Keaton Jennings's hands in the gully. He chose to take the review but DRS suggested that the ball was clipping the leg-stump and Kohli had to walk back.

India crossed 200 in the 63rd over with Kohli and Pujara bringing up their 100-run partnership off 270 balls.

Falls: 1-60 (Rahul), 2-111 (Dhawan), 3-224 (Pujara), 4-281 (Kohli), 5-282 (Pant), 6-329 (Rahane), 7-349 (Shami).

Struggling at 32/2, skipper Joe Root (13) along with rookie batsman Ollie Pope (16), did well to battle out the initial fury from the Indian pacers, who by now had their tails up.

Bumrah's penchant for bowling "no-balls" then prevented him from completing his five-wicket haul after Adil Rashid was caught by Kohli in the slip cordon.
