    18.4 edged and taken at second slip. Woakes finds the outside edge and the breakthrough for England. Good length and slanting away outside off with the angle from over the wicket, Dhawan is squared up as he jabs with hard hands and snicks it behind to Buttler 60/1
    20.6 Woakes pins Rahul in the crease with an inswinger. He has been given out leg before by umpire Erasmus. Rahul tucks his bat in and walks off. Pujara then chats with him, and Rahul eventually calls for a review. Is this heading down leg? Length ball, big inswinger from Woakes, catches Rahul in the crease, he plays around it and is rapped on the back pad. Ball-tracking suggests it would crash into leg stump. Woakes takes out both the Indian openers after a solid start. After testing Rahul with five balls that moved away or held its line outside off, Woakes brings this one back in and nabs Rahul. Top bowling from Woakes. India lose Rahul and a review 65/2
    26.4 Oh, Pujara holes out at the stroke of lunch. Chest-high short ball on middle, Pujara takes it on with an uncharacteristic hook, as opposed to swaying away or ducking under it, he can't keep it down and hits it straight down the throat of Rashid at long leg. He had swivelled on the back foot and hit the ball a bit too early 82/3
    75.6 Adil Rashid has got one to turn after sliding many on straight. What an anti-climax! He doesn't even know how to celebrate, but this is a good ball. It's tossed up, it's loopy, it's got revs. He hasn't bowled too many of these today. This one lands outside off. Kohli looks to crash it through the line to sweeper cover's right. But he isn't to the pitch and with the turn away, he isn't in control. Stokes takes easily to his left at slip. India's captain is gone after another superb knock under tough circumstances 279/5

    66.6 Cook sticks his left hand out and plucks a one-hander at first slip. Great reflexes. England, finally, find a way past this pair. This was pitched up and seams away a wee bit outside off, Rahane's front foot is nowhere close to the pitch. He reaches out for the ball with his hands, drives loosely, and nicks it off. He kept going after such balls in the previous over and got away. This time he falls 241/4
    86.6 taken at second slip. Pandya can't hang on. Hard hands. Looks like he wants to dead-bat that, but he's not got the technique right on it. It's a belated withdrawal in the end. Outswinger at a good length outside off, draws him forward and it carries nicely to Buttler 307/6

    91.4 Broad has Pant playing on. Nice and full outside off, asks Pant to chase after it. Pant obliges, chases after a drive with his feet pinned to the crease and watches an inside edge rattle his stumps. Broad gives the debutant a send-off 323/7

    93.4 sharp inswinger from Broad, floors Ashwin's middle stump. Pretty full and hooping back in on middle, after starting outside off, Ashwin wants to flick it away to the leg side, but the ball sneaks through the gate, and knocks out his middle stump. Two wickets in seven balls for Broad 326/8

    94.5 Anderson wraps up India for 329. Back of a length, angling into leg stump, then nips away late to square Bumrah up and hit the top of middle stump 329/10

    11.6 he's got him! What a wonderful over this has been from Ishant Sharma. Kept swinging it away from the corridor and got it full enough for Cook to keep playing. He's poking away from the body this time and it's a thin edge that goes straight through to the debutant keeper 54/1
    12.1 and another! Tentative from Jennings against a short and wide ball. Instinctive jab and his decision to withdraw the bat comes too late. It's kissed the edge and flown wide to Pant's left. He's skipped across comfortably and taken his second Test catch. It's almost a repeat of India's innings from yesterday. India have gained the momentum now. 54/2
    24.1 has that carried to second slip? KL Rahul has certainly celebrated like it has. Hard to think the soft signal will be anything other than out, given that. Yes, soft signal is out...it is a legal delivery...oh this will be close! There is possibility of there being a bounce and he can only possibly have fingertips under it...third umpire rules he has fingertips under it! Joe Root cannot believe it. Neither can the crowd. By the rules, that is the correct decision - there wasn't conclusive evidence to overturn an out decision. But it wouldn't have been overturned if it was given not out in the first place. It's that soft signal debate lurking again. That was short of a length and straightening in the corridor as Root defended inside the line. Pandya bowled from wide of the crease. Root never looked convinced, not even before the replay was taken. He was marking his guard as the review happened. 86/4
    19.1 taken down leg side and Pope doesn't stick around for the review. Short of a length on the pads, swinging on with the angle. Pope tickles it fine but Pant has lunged to his left down leg side to complete a sharp catch. hHis early step into the leg side helps him this time 75/3
    30.1 What a ball, Hardik Pandya! What a spell, Hardik Pandya! Perfectly-pitched ball, full, angling in towards middle and off, makes Bairstow play, the late seam movement squares him up, and finds the outside edge. This is held comfortably by Rahul at second slip. From 54 for 0, England have fallen to 110 for 6 110/6
    29.2 got him at second slip! No doubt this time. KL Rahul pouches it at knee height. Stokes caught poking with hard hands outside off as one straightens after angling in. Good bowling, not very confident batting. This looks bleak for England now 108/5
    38.2 Buttler toe-ends a catch to Thakur, the substitute, at long-on. Back of a length and outside off, Buttler has a roundhouse swipe at it but only miscues it to the deep 161/10
    30.6 Pant takes a step to the leg side, then stretches out his right glove, the ball just about sticks in his webbing even as it keeps swerving away from his reach. Umpire Erasmus raises his finger and gives Woakes out caught behind. Woakes challenges the on-field out decision. Bouncer aimed at the arm-pit, cramps the batsman for room. Woakes still dares to hook, he only tickles it off the bat to Pant 118/7
    32.1 Four wickets for Pandya, five catches for Pant. Pant dives to his right and snaffles this edge. Shastri and Bangar are up on their feet, applauding their boys. Full, angling in just a shade outside off, and nibbling away, Rashid has a defensive push at it and nicks it behind to the debutant. England's procession continues... 128/8
    32.5 Pandya bags his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket. He holds the red ball aloft and celebrates. Broad thinks about a review but decides against it. Plumb. This is full and straight, swings in, 142ks, Broad falls over a leg-side flick and is pinned in front of middle. This is some spell from Pandya. Five wickets inside five overs 128/9

    23.2 Dhawan uses his feet, Rashid pulls his length back and gets it to break away. Dhawan does not read the googly, and is stranded near the middle of the pitch. YJB takes the bails off. Dhawan leaves with 44 - his highest Test score in England 111/2

    11.2 through him! Another Rahul-Dhawan stand stops at 60. He's missed a full straight one this time. Loose shot, no feet. Looks to drive through the line with hard hands. But this angles in from an off stump line, catches his pad and deflects onto off stump 60/1
    71.3 taken at first slip. You could sense the tension as this floated towards Cook's left thigh, but he's pouched it easily. There have been a few Pujara adventures outside off stump, and this one gets his outside edge. Hard hands once more, and pushing away from the body on the front foot. Stokes gets just enough deviation away. Pujara's first fifty in 16 first-class innings ends at 72 224/3

    93.4 Woakes wins an lbw appeal from umpire Erasmus. This looks adjacent but Kohli calls for a review. Full, angling in, swinging in to ping the front pad on the knee-roll. Kohli shuffles across and misses the leg-side flick. The tracker returns umpire's call on leg stump. Kohli walks off to a rousing reception 281/4

    94.4 Pant feeds an outside edge to first slip. Simple catch for Cook. Full, angling in from around the wicket, then straightens away to find the outside edge as Pant pushes with hard hands 282/5

    11.6 gone, Ishant is on fire here! Back of a length, angling into the fourth-stump channel, straightening away. The line is so tight with off stump that it's incredibly hard to leave it. Cook plays at it, the movement finds his edge, and KL Rahul takes a comfortable chest-high catch at second slip 32/2
    9.5 gone, Ishant strikes in the first over. It was always on the cards - he's been testing both left-handers with his round-the-wicket angle and the ability to straighten it away from them. This one lands just short of a good length, close to off stump, and allies extra bounce with that seam away. Jennings prods at it with close to zero footwork, and sends a healthy edge through to Pant 27/1
    24.3 superb catch at second slip! This is a thick edge, with Root pushing hard at a shortish delivery, wide enough to be left alone, but Bumrah's angle lures Root into playing. It always lures right-handers into playing. The outside edge flies to Rahul's right. It's nearly past him as he thrusts out both of his hands, eyes on the ball all the way, and takes it like an absolute boss. Splendid work! Five catches for KL, all at second slip. 62/3
    25.1 another sensational grab This time it's Kohli leaping to his left from third slip, hands in the reverse-cup position, stretching high above his head seeking the ball, and it sticks! Superb reflexes from the Indian captain. And he comes into play because Pope plays a very poor shot. Soon after he sees his senior partner depart, he throws his hands at a full delivery so very wide outside his off stump. The edge results. It was the only thing that could result. 62/4
    85.5 squares him up and takes him out! Stokes' fight. All of his application. Undone by the new ball. One that pitches outside leg, forcing him to think about playing through midwicket. Then it darts away off the seam to take the leading edge and settle in the hands of second slip. England are wilting in the face of some sensational bowling and this shiny little red thing. 241/8

    82.3 lbw while leaving the ball! Buttler reviews. He has to. But he won't find much joy here. It's very full. It's always heading towards the stumps. Very very strange that he'd leave this ball. Pins him on the knee roll. And ball-tracking says it would clip middle stump. Umpire's call - and Gaffaney had said it was out. So Buttler has to go. India find the wicket they've been looking for all afternoon and the Trent Bridge crowd rises as one to applaud a fine cricketer who might just have fallen in love with Test cricket all over again 231/5
    82.4 rip-snorting ball of pure awesomeness. Bairstow might have been at his absolute best and he wouldn't have been able to do anything against this peach. It angles into the right-hander, lulling him into thinking he would have to block around middle and leg. Then it pitches and holds its line. Such trickery, Such devious glorious trickery. India have clearly made the right call with the new ball, which has crashed into off stump with a vengeance 231/6
    84.4 caught behind! The inswinger. An outswinger. And now a bouncer. Bumrah's just showing off. He's in a monster mood and he's showing off. Woakes has an issue with the short ball. He fell to one in the first innings. And this time he's faced with the same old scary thing. Except this is quicker. And it's coming right for his head. He doesn't have time to get out of the way. He tries to fend. He tries so hard. But all he does is glove it through to Pant. 241/7

    96.2 taken at second slip, and this time, it is five for Bumrah! Pitches the new ball up, on middle, has the left-hander squared up because of the angle. Broad has to defend. The ball takes the outside edge. Rahul is waiting at second slip. How many catches does he have now? Seven, I hear. Meanwhile, Bumrah's leading India towards a dominant Test win, and along the way, he puts his finger on his lips looking at a part of the crowd that is screaming no-ball 291/9
    104.5 is that it? It is. Ashwin takes the last wicket with a legbreak. Shortish outside off, turns sharply into Anderson and gets big on him as he makes room to cut. Ends up gloving it up over the slips, and Rahane backtracks from first slip to take the simplest of catches 317/10
