Todd Murphy cleans up Ravindra Jadeja for 70

India’s lower order made a crucial contribution on the third morning of the Nagpur Test as they added 78 runs even as Todd Murphy returned a seven-wicket haul on debut. The offspinner made an early incision when Ravindra Jadeja erroneously shouldered arms to be bowled on 70. With both offspinners extracting some purchase, there was a possibility of a swift wrap-up to the Indian innings. But Mohammed Shami proceeded to add 52 with Axar Patel, hitting three sixes and two fours in his 37, as India’s lead went past 200.
