<p>Shubman Gill started the practice by driving Bashir through additional cover with ease for four points. He then flicked and drove off James Anderson for two more boundaries. Jaiswal kept up his impressive performance by lofting Bashir over long-on for six. Ollie Robinson’s outside edge, which was killing keeper Ben Foakes, gave Jaiswal a close call.</p>
<p>Replays revealed that the ball bounced before entering the gloves, contradicting Foakes’s belief that he made a clean catch. Gill used his quick hands to break through with a cut and guide Ollie Robinson for consecutive fours. However, Bashir trapped Gill leg before wicket with a ball that twisted quickly to beat the inside edge.</p>
<p>Gill requested a review, but the footage showed the ball striking the stumps, ending his 82-run stand with Jaiswal, who scored a single from Tom Hartley for his fourth fifty-plus of the match.</p>
<p>Rajat Patidar was caught off guard by Bashir after being trapped leg before wicket by a ball that drifted on from outside off. Patidar had excelled with his dabs, flicks, and punches to rapidly gather four boundaries. The umpire’s ruling was affected by the ball striking Patidar’s leg-stump, as shown by the DRS, ending Patidar’s stay at 17.</p>
<p>Ravindra Jadeja survived an LBW review on the previous ball and then blasted two consecutive leg-side sixes off Hartley. However, Bashir got his third wicket when he delivered a good-length top-spinner with additional bounce to catch Jadeja’s inside edge and the ball bounced to Ollie Pope at short leg. India’s hopes of getting out of difficulty will mostly rest on Jaiswal and Sarfaraz.</p>
<p>In the morning session, India defeated England for 353 in 104.5 overs during their first innings.</p>
<p>In response, just after lunch, the hosts lost captain Rohit Sharma (2).</p>
<p>Joe Root had earlier gone undefeated at 122 as England lost their first innings 353 runs.</p>
<p>After taking over at 302 for seven at the start of the day, Root and Ollie Robinson finished their century partnership for the eighth wicket to propel England ahead.</p>
<p>During the process, Robinson scored his first-ever Test half-century (58 off 96).</p>
<p>On day 2, Jadeja (4/67) claimed the last three wickets for England.</p>
<p>On the first day, debutant Akash Deep (3/83) made an impression, as Mohammed Siraj (2/78) claimed two wickets.</p>
<p>In the five-match Test series, India is up 2-1.</p>
