The captain and vice-captain have displayed nerves of steel against the fiery bowling of Stuart Broad, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, James Anderson.

ALL OVER! James Anderson in on a hat-trick as he puts an end to the Indian innings with the wickets of Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.

Coming to the 3rd Test, Kohli and Shastri will aim to get team combination right with the most awaited change likely to be the inclusion of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might replace Dinesh Karthik, who is in bad form. But his first nine overs cost 45 runs as he strove to impress, and he was the only England bowler who failed to take a wicket on day one. And if the last four wickets manage to add 50-60 runs, it will help the team's chances further.

Sony Six, Sony Six HD, Sony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 3 HD will provide live television coverage of the match in India. Batting first was the best way for England to control a game they only need to draw to deny India overall victory in this Specsavers series.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli once again guided his side from the front as visitors put up 307 runs for the loss of six wickets till stumps on the first day of the third Test match.

As well as India competed in the thrilling first Test at Edgbaston, their capitulation in the second at Lord's raised fears the remainder of the series would be one-sided. But, England bowlers could not extract much from the pitch as Indian batters smashed them all over the park.

Urban Meyer investigation to end Sunday
Offensive coordinator Ryan Day has been working as the acting head coach of the Buckeyes in Meyer's absence. He won the 2014 national championship, his third, to go with titles he won in 2006 and 2008 at Florida.

However, Virat Kohli on Saturday missed out on a well-deserved Test century by a whisker as his 97 came off 152 balls.

Both Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli have gone into the attacking mode. When he reached a personal score of 59, the Mumbaikar completed 3000 runs in longest format. The Indian captain had looked untroubled, over an hour into the final session, when Adil Rashid tossed a leg-break wide. They played their shots, ran their singles and twos as India maintained a healthy run-rate of 3.52 pe over throughout the day. They were wary and watchful, mostly playing the ball under their eyes, yet they still rattled along at three and a half an over. But it didn't take anything away from the solid job done by the opening pair.

Two overs later, Rahul was trapped leg before as Woakes set him up beautifully.

Twitterati came up with an impressive message for the future wicketkeeper-batsman of India.

Dhawan (35 off 65) edged to the second slip while trying to defend a short of delivery from Woakes.
