He displayed his prowess with the bat by taking 35 from Broad’s final over in the first innings as India’s tail wagged to help them amass a score of 416 in the fifth and final Test on day two at Edgbaston.
Coming to Day three of the match, A solid half-century by Cheteshwar Pujara and his 50-run stand with wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant put India in the driver’s seat at the end of Day three of the ongoing fifth and final Test against England at Edgbaston, with the score reading 125/3 at the end of the day’s play.
At the end of Day three, Pujara (50*) and Pant (30*) stood unbeaten. India maintained a healthy 257-run lead in the match.
