India heaved a huge sigh of relief as Jasprit Bumrah managed to breach through the fortress that is Joe Root’s defence. The pace spearhead sent down a searing slanter that penetrated through the tiny gap between his bat and pad to hit timber. Root, who has already registered over 500 runs in the series in mere five innings, strolled off the field to a thunderous round of applause. Despite his masterclass, the honours were shared in the last session as England’s lower middle order laid down the arms.
Another wonderful innings from the skipper comes to an end.
