Just as the match was getting interesting the drizzle is back again as the players head for cover while the ground is also covered up. We wait again.
And that’s gone. Bumrah as done Crawley in. Edged and is taken by Gill in the slip. Bumrah is suddenly on a hattrick now. What a match he is having. ENG 27/2 after 4.1 overs
Back live and Crawley is welcomed by a sizzler by Shami which beats everyone and goes for 4 byes. Four more in the last over. ENG 27/1 after 4 overs
Update: If there is no more rain, play to restart at 1:15PM local time (17:45 IST) according to BCCI’s official Twitter handle. Well, fingers crossed.
Robin Peterson, who before today, conceded the highest runs (28) in an over in Test cricket history directed a cheeky dig at Stuart Broad, saying ” Sad to lose my record today. Oh well, records are made to be broken I guess. Onto the next one.”
Michael Atherton decodes the current trend of high-scoring totals in Tests in England in recent times.
According to reports, much like yesterday, the rain has forced an early lunch to be takem. India will be happy with the work done so far and will hope to continue the form.
The players are walking back to the pavilion as rain stops play as soon as the wicket fell. The covers are on and we’ll provide an update as soon as it becomes available.
Bumrah strikes!!! Lees is gone!!! Bumrah draws first blood and just what India needed. England lose one opener early as rain stops play.
James Anderson bags his 32nd fifer in Tests. He’s now sixth in the all-time list, behind Muralitharan, Warne, Hadlee, Kumble and Herath.
Lees and Crawley are at the crease. Lees is on strike. Bumrah will open the attack. Just 2 runs from that over as Shami comes in to bowl the 2nd over. Lees hits the first four of the innings to hand England a steady start. ENG 7/0 after 2 overs
35*: Jasprit Bumrah vs Stuart Broad
28: Keshav Maharaj vs Joe Root
28: George Bailey vs James Anderson
28: Brian Lara vs Robin Peterson
Jimmy Anderson picks Mohammed Siraj and yet another five-wicket haul. And with that India’s first innings comes to an end. Where once 200 looked doubtful, 416 is the reality.
World Record by Jasprit Bumrah: 35 runs in an over. Most in an over in a Test match. 28 was the highest before: Lara (off Robin Peterson), Bailey (Anderson), and Keshav Maharaj (off Root). Broad gave 6 sixes to Yuvraj in a T20; now 35 runs in an over
Anderson gets his fourth and a BIG wicket for England!
Jadeja misses the swinging-in-the-air full delivery completely. A standing ovation for the southpaw from the Edgbaston crowd. India, 375/9.
Two Test centuries in a calendar year by an India batter at seven or lower:
Kapil Dev in 1986
MS Dhoni in 2009
Harbhajan Singh in 2010
Ravindra Jadeja in 2022 *
Kapil Dev: 1986
MS Dhoni: 2009
Harbhajan Singh: 2010
Ravindra Jadeja: 2022 *
Just when it looked like India were sailing strong for more early on day two, Mohammad Shami helps the ball to the third man. Stuart Broad gets his first wicket of the match, India 371/8 after 80 overs.
There comes out the sword!The Indian dugout stands and the applauds an absolutely brilliantly hundred this from Ravindra Jadeja. As does the rest of Edgbaston crowdn. Came in to bat when India were five down for 98. Has propelled India closer to 400 now. What a fine-fine batter he has been for India in this format over the last couple of years!
England are well aware of the damage Mohammad Shami can do with the bat. Matty Potts is just getting a feel of it. Consecutive boundaries for India’s number nine. 350 up for India. 351/7 after 77 overs.
Under the gloomy Edgbaston skies, Rishabh Pant made another leap into greatness. He cracked 146 off 111 balls in a staggering exhibition of counterpunching to make the first day of the series-decider undoubtedly India’s.
For much of the day, the match was under the iron clutches of England. After old-stager James Anderson and fledgling Matthew Potts had struck in unison to plunge India to 98/5, Pant and Ravindra Jadeja combined to add 222 runs to not only fish India out of danger but put them in the ascendancy. When the pair parted, India had galloped to 320 runs.
