Indian batsmen showed great improvement from the previous two Tests to take the team to 307/6 at the end of day one of third Test against England. Batting coach Sanjay Bangar feels that it was a result of the adjustments made by the batsmen. He also threw light on the fact that some players used shots square of the wicket to good effect that brought positive results for the team. He mentioned about the start that openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul provided to the team. On the other hand England all-rounder Chris Woakes said that there is always an added pressure on bowlers to do well after the team elects to bowl first. He added that Indian batsmen did well to negotiate the early swing and capitalised on a good start.
