Bairstow and Woakes put England on top against India in second Test

India vs England 2nd Test live Cricket Streaming

Woakes scored an unbeaten 120 in tricky conditions as England batted through a slightly abbreviated day to finish at 357 for six, while Jonny Bairstow contributed 93 to a record sixth-wicket partnership of 199 for England against India.

England were 230 for five in reply to India's meagre 107, a lead of 123 runs, at tea on the third day.

The wicket was a turning point to an already disastrous start to the second test for Indian cricket team as the skipper had previously put in a stunning display at Edgbaston, scoring 149 and 51 he was the most prized scalp for team India.

In 17 Tests since Joe Root became captain, England have been dismissed for under 300 in their first innings seven times.

While Chris Woakes and Johnny Bairstow were tormenting the Indian bowlers, Kohli had to leave his troops to treat his sore back.

David Moyes has made a very bold prediction for Manchester United's season
The manager pointed to those players who, alongside Pogba , had little training due to post-World Cup breaks. So that's why at times he looks for players in their late 20s, early 30s, because he wants to win.

Eric Bailly did superbly to deny Iheanacho, and Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray nearly flicked home. He added: "The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it and he is first choice".

Last Solar Eclipse of 2018 to Occur today
A total solar eclipse - like the one that took place on August 21, 2017 - occurs when the disk of the moon blocks 100% of the sun. Just over a year ago, millions across North America were anxiously awaiting the " Great American Solar Eclipse " of August 21.

Bairstow and Jos Buttler went on the offensive immediately after the interval, quickly taking England past India's first innings total, but, while Bairstow remained to inflict further damage on India, Buttler departed for 24, becoming Shami's (3-74) third lbw victim after being beaten for pace as he advanced and moved across his stumps to try and work the ball to leg. Bairstow fetched few boundaries off the spinners to get to his half-century, and with time, Woakes also got comfortable in the middle, adding to India's agony.

Woakes breezed past his previous Test-best score of 66 and eventually overtook Bairstow. Umesh's omission was glaring. Five balls later Jennings " s fellow left-handed opener Alastair Cook (21) was out as well, caught behind off a superb Sharma delivery from around the wicket that squared him up and seamed away before finding the outside edge. Besides, R Ashwin, who struck in the ninth over in Edgbaston, was not brought on until the 39th. The run rate was always over four.

Dinesh Karthik (1) was clueless as Curran got one to dart back in as it breached it his defences.

India's fightback had fizzled out.

Woakes, who reached his century off just 129 balls, is playing in place of Ben Stokes, who was forced to miss the second test as he stands trial in a court in Bristol charged with affray.
