Mohammed Siraj broke the vital partnership of Jonny Bairstow and Ollie Pope on day two at the Oval, dismissing the former leg before wicket with a ball that nipped back in to the right-hander. It renewed a very watchable battle that has been on display during the series, ignited by Siraj's send-off of Bairstow during the first Test. The wicket left England 151-6, 40 behind India's first innings total of 191 and kept the game, and indeed the series, firmly in the balance.
