India lead by 292

Trent Bridge, Aug 20: Team India bounce back against England team here at Trent Bridge. They are brilliant in both Bowling and Batting department.

On day 2, a disciplined batting helped India score 124/2 in their second innings, taking 292-runs lead at stumps against England at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

Cheteshwar Pujara (33) and Skipper Virat Kohli (8) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

For England, Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes chipped in one wicket each in the last session. Resuming the second day at 307 for six, India's lower-order batsmen — Ravichandran Ashwin (14) Ishant Sharma (1 not out), Mohammed Shami(3) and Jasprit Bumrah (0) — failed to make any substantial contribution to the score.

Overnight batsmen Rishabh Pant only managed to add just two runs to his score before going back to the pavilion.

Coming into bat, England started their innings steadily. The hosts were 46/0, trailing by 283 runs at lunch. England openers Alastair Cook Aand Keaton Jennings applied themselves handsomely and made sure they went for lunch without losing any wicket. Cook faced 30 balls and slammed three boundaries while Jennings played 25 deliveries and hit the same number of boundaries.

But after lunch, England struggled as Indian bowlers bounced back in style. Hardik Pandya's 5/28 broke the back of English batting line-up as the hosts were bundled out for 161 in their first innings. India rode on a brilliant bowling display as the entire England batsmen were wrapped after they added just 115 runs in the second session of the second day. After a decent start, as England were 46 for no loss at lunch, the Indian bowlers came all guns blazing to hand their side a 168-run lead after India's first Inning score of 329. Apart from Pandya, pacers Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah scalped couple of wickets each conceding 32 and 37 runs respectively while Mohammed Shami bagged one.
