Hi there and welcome to Sportstar’s stay protection of the third day of the fifth Check between India and England from Edgbaston in Birmingham.
LUNCH HAS BEEN TAKEN
Simply earlier than rain stopped play, Bairstow was given out lbw off Thakur however he reviewed instantly, certain sufficient, there was an outdoor edge.
RAIN STOPS PLAY
ENG 196/6 in 44 overs: Bairstow targets Thakur with a ramp shot and sq. drive for 2 back-to-bakc fours. In between there’s a change of ball for India. Bairstow is unbothered as he swats a Siraj brief ball for six earlier than smashing Thakur for a 4 and 6. He’s batting like a person possessed.
ENG 160/6 in 40 overs: WICKET! Shardul Thakur dropped a easy likelihood of Ben Stokes earlier. However he has made amends by having him caught in his very first over. He was dropped by Bumrah at mid-off off the fourth ball. Subsequent ball, Stokes tries to emulate the identical shot – appears to clear mid-off and Bumrah dives to his left to take the catch. Sam Billings joins Bairstow. Billings is off the mark with a boundary. Bairstow continues to play optimistic cricket.
Check Match 100s are held in such excessive esteem, due to the large accountability & worth that each batter has in defending/defending his wicket.
My worry with this new all out assault strategy, is the batters devaluing their wicket and hiding behind this new tactic.

ENG 141/5 in 36 overs: Bairstow drives a Bumrah full size ball over mid-off for 4 extra. Shami bowls around the wicket to Stokes with three slips and a gully.

In the meantime, Siraj replaces Bumrah and concedes two back-to-back fours to Bairstow, who’s motoring alongside now. Subsequent over, Shardul drops a easy likelihood of Stokes off Shami’s bowling. Stokes was batting on 18. The batters run a single and Bairstow hits the following two balls for fours. The 50 stand comes up.
ENG 100/5 in 32 overs: Bumrah from the opposite finish. Around the wicket to Stokes with three slips and a gully. Stokes provides Bumrah the cost and is overwhelmed by motion away from him. The English skipper skipped down the monitor a few occasions on Day 2 as properly. In the meantime, Bumrah bowls a entrance foot no ball once more and Stokes flicks the following ball by mid-on for 4. Shami continues around the wicket to Stokes, who expenses down as soon as once more and hits it down the bottom for 4. Bumrah will get one to form into Stokes, who will get an inside edge onto his field. Shami, in the meantime, in the midst of a dream spell. He’s throughout Bairstow, who’s seen having an animated chat with Virat Kohli. Between overs, Bairstow and Kohli made up with the latter’s pleasant jab on Bairstow’s shoulder
ENG 84/5 in 28 overs: Shami with the ball. Bairstow on strike. Begins with a large ball down leg facet. Getting it to swing in. Three slips and a gully for Jonny. Shami getting the ball to seam away as properly with considerable bounce. Begins with a maiden.
We’re all set for play to renew. Indian workforce in a huddle. Bumrah addressing his teammates. Out come Bairstow and Stokes.
14.41: It is going to be Shami and Bumrah, vs Bairstow and Stokes. Former English captain Nasser Hussain feels this batch of Dukes balls appears to go gentle fairly shortly, after which once they go gentle, they go off form. So, if Bairstow and Stokes can get a partnership going, England may contemplate mounting a fightback. Solely 38.5 overs have been bowled yesterday. We should always have much more cricket climate climate allowing, after all.
14.30: Welcome again. The solar’s out in Birmingham. Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes are on the crease. They’ve conjured magic within the current previous. Can they do it once more? Indian pacers are looking in a pack. Siraj is but to get a longish crack on the English batters. However Bumrah and Shami, and the latter particularly, have been impeccable and relentless of their line and size. England path by 332 runs.
HOW DAY 2 PANNED OUT
Ravindra Jadeja resumed Day 2 on 83 and reached his third Check hundred from 183 balls. Stuart Broad bowled the costliest over in Checks, conceding 35 runs in an unbelievable morning session. England closed on 84-5 in reply to India’s 416- REPORT
India has by no means gained a Check at Edgbaston, dropping six and drawing one on the 1986 tour.
