20 year old debutant Rishabh Pant flipped Rashid for a six to score first worldwide runs and took India's score to cross 300 runs.

At the time of filing the copy, England was reeling at 159/9 with Buttler at the wicket on 37*.

Ishant Sharma has now dismissed Alastair Cook 10 times in Test cricket.

Admittedly, the overcast conditions made batting hard, but England´s top-order problems run deeper than bad luck with the weather.

Left-hander Rishabh Pant was handed his first cap, while Jasprit Bumrah and Shikhar Dhawan returned to the side, following their embarrassing 159-run innings defeat against England at the Lord's last week. Rishabh Pant couldn't continue for longer than 24 runs and once he was dismissed, they added just 6 runs before being bowled out on 329.

Olliver Pope (10) and Joe Root (16) added 21 runs for the third wicket, but Sharma's fuller lengths caused all sort of troubles for both the batsman.

The umpires called for a review but made a ´soft signal´ of out and the on-field call was upheld. Ben Stokes has cleared by the court in the Bristol brawl and will join the team at Trent Bridge. There was no inkling of what was to come as Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were not consistent and let England reach 46/0 at lunch. One such square brought up his 13th fifty in Test match cricket.

England were now 118 for seven.

Pandya came on after drinks and struck with his very first ball, drawing an edge from Root. Stuart Broad starts the first over. Ashwin, however, defends strongly on Anderson's attack, leads with two FOUR in Anderson's over.

Openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul ensured India maintained their dominance over England in the evening session, sharing an opening stand of 60 before Rahul was bowled by Stokes.

But when play ended in bright sunshine, England needed to surpass the record fourth innings score to win a Test at Trent Bridge, their own 284 for six against New Zealand in 2004, to achieve an improbable success.
