<p>India’s day began on an anticipated high note as captain Rohit Sharma faced down players like Anderson and Bashir, punishing them with opportune boundaries and being supported by a patient Jaiswal on the other end.</p>
<p>Jaiswal survived when a contentious DRS no-call resulted in Bashir’s delivery to him going up to the third umpire, who declared that what seemed to be the bottom part of the opener’s bat contacting his pad had struck an inside edge.</p>
<p>However, Jaiswal’s luck would soon run out as he swiped away at a peach of a fuller delivery from Joe Root, which was nicked and prompted James Anderson, 42, to make an incredible grab.</p>
<p>The next phase would prove to be dangerous for India, as the change in momentum meant that captain Rohit Sharma would leave soon after, and newcomer Rajat Patidar’s poor form would result in another duck for him as India lost three wickets for a hundred runs.</p>
<p>Before the seeming collapse started, Rohit Sharma (55 off 81) had an 84-run stand with opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal (37), scoring an important fifty.</p>
<p>However, Shubman Gill (age 18) and Ravindra Jadeja (age 3) patiently stepped to the crease and proceeded to play the remainder of the session with prudence, guaranteeing that India would reach lunch without losing any more wickets.</p>
<p>As they attempt to undermine the Indian batting order, Bashir and Tom Hartley, the spin combination, persistently cause Gill problems with their interfering length and line.</p>
<p>With only 74 runs needed to win the match and, for the first time in the series, secure India’s victory, India will be searching for the duo to form a partnership and pave the road for India’s triumph.</p>
<p>In 37 overs, England scored 353 and 145, while India scored 307 and 118/3 (Rohit Sharma scored 55, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 37, and Shoaib Bashir scored 1/40).</p>
