Meanwhile, in the Test match, Ben Stokes with the remaining three wickets to end India’s second innings at 345 in 81.5 overs, took the effect of a heavy roller on the pitch and was evident from a superb opening stand of 107 between Crawley. The ball changes and Bumrah brings India back an over before tea.
Lies began the first three overs by successfully hitting four boundaries off Shami and Bumrah. Crowley was more cautious of balls outside off-stump before driving off Shami and Bumrah.
As England scored 43 runs in eight overs, India put Ravindra Jadeja into the attack. But it had little effect on England as Lies danced on the pitch to drive it through mid-off before hitting two boundaries in Jadeja’s opening over.
Lies remained attractive in his stroke play, with upper cut-off Mohammad Siraj being a standout. He then completed his half-century through a copybook style back-foot punch in just 44 balls off Siraj.
Crowley, who got caught behind Jadeja’s appeal, brought in some great drives and flicks and started finding crispness for fun. The left-right pair completed England’s century in 19.5 overs, marking the first-century stand between the two.
For India, who got to change the ball after 20.5 overs, Bumrah brought himself up in the 22nd over and made a breakthrough off the fourth ball as Crowley’s off-stump was cast, the batsman in-ducking a shot. Not given, from which it was given to India. A crucial breakthrough one over before tea.
Earlier, Stokes, who had dismissed Virat Kohli on Sunday, got Mohammed Shami caught at deep backward square leg. Jadeja never went ahead and Stokes ended his stay with a blow at a quick pace and forced the left-hander to bite at his stumps.
Indian captain Bumrah hits a big six over fine leg. But Stokes had the last laugh off the very next ball as Bumrah went for the same shot, only to be holed out at fine leg, Stokes finished with 4-33 in 11.5 overs as India posted a mammoth 378 to England. given target.
