IND vs ENG Live: Rohit Sharma started cautiously in the second innings.© AFP
Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma batted cautiously against the swing bowling of James Anderson and Ollie Robinson in overcast conditions in the second innings of the third Test at Headingley in Leeds. India were placed at 14/0 after 9 overs, still trailing by 340 runs. Earlier, India picked up England’s remaining two wickets early on Day 3 to bowl out the hosts for 432 runs as they conceded a 354-run lead in the first innings. Indian bowlers toiled hard on Day 2 after England took the match in their control by bowling out the visitors for a paltry total of 78 on the opening day of the third Test. England skipper Joe Root continued his fine run with the bat in the series as he brought up his third century in three games. Apart from Root, Haseeb Hameed, Rory Burns and Dawid Malan scored half-centuries. For India, Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets. Jasprit Bumrah castled Root but not before he batted England into a commanding position in the ongoing Test. (LIVE SCORECARD)
