Day three of the ongoing Lord's Test was nothing less than a disaster for Team India as the bowlers failed to restrict the English batsmen. After having them 89/4 at lunch, England managed to take a whopping lead of 250, largely due to the efforts of Chris Woakes (120) and Jonny Bairstow (93). At the post match conference, Hardik Pandya, who bagged two wickets said that the bowlers did their best to get wickets, but the ball stopped swinging after lunch. He even backed the decision to play an additional spinner. On the other hand centurion Woakes said that it was a special moment for him to score a ton at the historic Lord's.
