The rain interruptions are always frustrating for the players. They need to keep switching on and off for every few overs. The hover cover is being brought on to cover the surface. Virat Kohli has a word with Bairstow as they trudge off the field. The downpour is quite heavy now and the square is covered. India have picked a wicket each time there has been a restart after a rain break and this time it was Ollie Pope. However, the thing to note is England have maintained a good run-rate and are still batting positively, with Root having began the session with a delectable straight drive.
