Patel ended the innings with 6/38, following his 5/60 in the second innings of the second Test in Chennai. Ashwin captured 3/26. England started the second session of the day-night Test at 81/4 after Patel, Ashwin and fast bowler Ishant Sharma, playing his 100th Test, gave India the upper hand before tea. Ollie Pope was bowled by Ashwin in the very first over the session, as he was deceived by a straight delivery that followed three consecutive balls that turned. Ben Stokes fell to Patel leg before the wicket in the next over, the dismissal being confirmed by the third umpire despite Stokes going for the review after the on-field umpire raised his finger.

Jofra Archer and Ben Foakes survived the next five overs before the former became Patel’s fourth wicket of the day. Ashwin struck again two overs later as Jack Leach edged the third delivery of his over to gully.

Patel then waited for just under 10 overs for his next wicket as Stuart Broad holed out at deep square leg. Ben Foakes was the last wicket to fall for England as he was bowled by Patel in the 49th over.

Earlier, Ishant gave India the initial breakthrough in the third over of the match with the dismissal of opener Dom Sibley. Patel then trapped Jonny Bairstow in front of the stumps off his very first ball of the match.

Captain Joe Root then stuck with Zak Crawley as the latter hit a counter-attacking half-century. However, the pair couldn’t see England through to the end of the session, with Root falling to Ashwin for 17. Axar then snaffled the wicket of Crawley towards the end of the session with the England opener departing for 53.


England 1st innings full scorecard

England 16/1 after 5 overs: Delectable touch from Crawley! Ishant is strode away for two elegant boundaries. A little fuller from Ishant and Crawley aces the drive. Ishant follows it up with an inswinger and the youngster who flick it through mid-on for another cracking boundary. He has looked in his element since the first ball.
England 8/1 after 4 overs: Bumrah specials are on the way. Bumrah gets one to stand up from the good length that catches Bairstow by surprise. Millimetres, just millimetres away from the outside edge and a lot of ‘oooohhs’ linger through the cauldron.
England 3/1 after 3 overs: Ishant to Sibley. OUT! A classic delivery from Ishant outside the off-stump channel has Sibley’s number. Ishant pushes one into that fine corridor of uncertainty that carries onto Sibley with a hint of extra bounce. Sibley has no choice but to go at it as Ishant’s snorter moves a hint from him. The edge races away to Rohit at second slip who completes a safe catch as India strikes early. New man in is Jonny Bairstow.      Sibley c Rohit b Ishant 0 (7)

England 0/0 after 2 overs: Probing over from Bumrah. The spearhead is back into the thick of things and inspects the vicinity with a couple of deliveries that move away from Sibley before he tails in the final delivery sharply. Sibley does well to press forward and defend an excellent ball from Bumrah.
