India vs England: Jasprit Bumrah-led pace attack rattles hosts in Southampton

Virat Kohli Anushka Sharma All Smiles After Meeting

Virat Kohli's men won emphatically in the third Test at Trent Bridge, pulling one back in the five-match series to make it 2-1. But India's pace pack, led by Jasprit Bumrah, had by then done the damage to leave England feeling grateful that young all-rounder Sam Curran (78), recalled into the side, played positively to take the hosts to 246 all out. Notably Virat Kohli did not play with same playing XI so far in his captaincy.

Joe Root won the toss and chose to bat first.

After Trent Bridge England had an entire week to do intensive work on the batting problems that have plagued them in this series, a week to work on techniques and to try and build back some confidence - in just over a morning's work the tourists reduced all that to rubble. Fellow opener Alastair Cook battled to 17 (55 balls) but Kohli shut the scoring routes on the off-side, forced him into a half-hearted cut off Hardik Pandya and caught brilliantly at third slip. The umpire gives it out but Root decides to go for the review.

WICKET! Jonny Bairstow's return is short-lived as he falls to the hands of wicketkeeper Rishab Pant, with Jasprit Bumrah celebrating his second wicket. He was forced to nick to keeper Rishabh Pant. On Thursday, the hosts were six down.

White House wobbles on USA flag after McCain death
Early Monday morning, the flag atop the White House was raised after an unusually brief time at half-staff in McCain's honor. Our words are too often cheap and imminently forgettable but John McCain paid our freight with his body and with his soul.

India had named an unchanged team while for England, batsman Ollie Pope was left out and seamer Chris Woakes was missing with a thigh injury.

As for England one-day worldwide gloveman Buttler, who deputised behind the stumps at Trent Bridge, replacing Bairstow as keeper, Root said: "It was a medical call, he (Bairstow) didn´t seem fit to be able to keep 100 percent in a Test match for five days and that was the call that was made".

After Adil Rashid was trapped leg before by Sharma, Stuart Broad provided valuable support for Curran with 17 in a 63-run partnership that pushed England towards a total that had looked very unlikely earlier in the day.
