Kyle Jamieson is in the thick of the action, having picked three wickets to rock India in the first Test in Kanpur. Under-fire Ajinkya Rahane had survived a caught behind appeal on review but failed to account for the lack of bounce as he played an ill-judged cut to drag on for 35. The tall fast bowler has been relentlessly probing in the fifth-stump channel and his discipline is paying rich dividends. In the 12 overs he has sent down so far, Jamieson has returned stellar figures of 12-4-34-3.
