Hyderabad: India’s innings lasted 54 minutes in the morning session losing the last three wickets for a mere 15 runs in 11 overs as India ended their innings at 436 in 120 overs, to take a first innings lead of 190 runs, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad, on Saturday.

Overnight batters Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel were cautious in their approach looking to survive the initial phase. They were successful in fending off Mark Wood and Joe Root for the first half an hour.
But Root then struck twin blows in as many overs in the day’s 10th over to limit India to 436

runs. He first dismissed well-set Jadeja (87 off 180b balls; 7×4, 2×6) as lbw. Jadeja reviewed the decision unsuccessfully. 

Root then got the next ball to sneak through Jasprit Bumrah’s bat and 
pad to castle his stumps. In the next over, Rehan Ahmed hit Axar’s stumps as Indian innings folded up adding mere 15 runs in 11 overs to extend the lead to 190 runs.

For England, Root returned as their most successful bowler with 4/79 bowling figures. Rehan Ahmed and Tom Hartley picked up two wickets apiece.
