100 for Jonny Bairstow

more had it not been for Bairstow. His ton is what has given England’s score some respectability. Just the one of the rest managed to cross the 30-run mark. At one time they were reeling at 5 down for below 100. Bairstow along with Stokes first and then Billings helped them avoid the follow-on and also got the deficit down to close to a 100.

The session started off in the same manner the last one ended! Bairstow and Billings started off from where they left off before the delay. Bairstow got to yet another ton and the two put the Indian bowlers under great pressure. Once Bairstow fell though, the lower-order did not last for long and India made quick work of it and have given themselves a lead of 132!

Potts is walking off angry and so are the England fans as they did not feel that was out! Does not matter though and the England innings comes to an end. India have done brilliantly to get a massive lead and they have put themselves into an excellent position here.

India will be a bit shocked at the moment. It’s not that they didn’t expect this from England, but after having them under check in the first half of the morning session, the visitors would have hoped for a favourable outcome. Still, they have the upper hand and it’s just a matter of picking a wicket or two. England have a long tail and getting there will be their top priority after the break. Let’s hope that the rain clears and we get going without much delay.

The story of morning is one and only – Jonathan Marc Bairstow! He was unstoppable, to put it simply! The sledging made him mentally strong, and he used his purple patch to take the challenge head on. Jonny played some outrageous shots and is now nine away from yet another Test hundred this summer. England are not out of jail though as they are 216 runs behind, and will need the current stand to last for as long as possible.

India could have gotten an early breakthrough on day 3, but Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes turn the tables on the visitors with some aggressive batting now known as the Bazball. Stokes departed after scoring 25 off 36, while Bairstow kept up the attack as he went after Shami and then Siraj and Thakur. Anything short was pulled away with disdain. The Yorkshire cricketer was looking at a sureshot century when the rain arrived with his score reading 91. Meanwhile England, who were 84/5 at Stumps on Day 2, are now 200/6.

Stand-in skipper Jasprit Bumrah will surely be in focus when India takes the field against England on the third day of the rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston. After setting the record for most runs in an over – 35 – the ace Indian pacer registered the figures of 3/35 before the end of the day’s play. At stumps, England were 84/5 in 27 overs, the hosts trailing by 332 runs. On Sunday, England captain Ben Stokes (0*) will walk out with Jonny Bairstow (12*) to resume the innings.

In the first session on Saturday, Stuart Broad must have had a feeling of ‘deja vu’ when he was literally butchered by the stand-in Indian captain, who scored 29 runs with the willow and also was gifted six extra runs to make it 35, highest ever in a single over in Test cricket.

In his first match at the helm as captain, Bumrah would have never thought that he would pip Brian Lara’s maximum runs (28 runs) in a single Test match over, which remained intact for 18 years. George Bailey and Keshav Maharaj though had equalled the feat.

Broad can’t be faulted if he remembered that September 2007 night in Durban, when Yuvraj Singh pummelled him for six sixes in an over. He got his 550th Test wicket on the day but by the end of it all, Bumrah had wiped that wry smile off his face.

When England came out to bat, the skipper had nicely warmed up and bowled a menacing first spell and for a change was rewarded for even putting his “foot wrong” on two occasions that resulted in additional deliveries which fetched him a couple of wickets.

After two days of play, India hold all the aces and look good to retain the Pataudi Trophy and stay in contention for a place in the World Test Championship final.

Bumrah was good with his bowling changes, field placements, and also DRS call of his own bowling. In all, a complete package is in place.
