England and India have stepped up their preparations at Headingley ahead of the third Test beginning on Wednesday. These photos show Virat Kohli receiving some throwdowns as he seeks to find his best form and the evergreen Jimmy Anderson, who is limbering up for his 165th Test at the age of 39 as the fast-bowling injury list lengthens around him. Joe Root is also shown talking to Dawid Malan, who looks set to bat at number three for the home side, with Haseeb Hameed likely to move up to open with the retained Rory Burns. Rishabh Pant is also shown to be working on his glovework, a discipline he has improved immensely over the past year.
