India vs England: Woakes Makes Instant Impact as Stokes Substitute

India vs England: Woakes Makes Instant Impact as Stokes Substitute

Root was clearly hoping that the lingering damp and overcast conditions would benefit Anderson and the 36-year-old took full advantage with some outstanding swing bowling.

This was an England sixth-wicket record in Test matches against India, surpassing the 171 shared by Ian Botham and Bob Taylor at Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1980.

For much of the day, thanks again to the weather, it looked as though the fans were going to be restricted to just over eight overs of cricket but then the weather cleared in the evening and India must have wished the rain had stuck around.

The all-rounder's unbeaten 120, coupled with 93 from Jonny Bairstow, took the hosts to 357-6, a lead of 250.

After a rain delay, things got really ugly for the visitors.

Kohli, who was looking all at sea against Woakes, finally fell to the right-armer in his third over, with Jos Buttler making no mistake this time at second slip.

Kohli and Pujara were friends before the mix-up.

By contrast, England's innings commenced under sunny blue skies that promised to make life easier for the batsmen.

Credit for the latter should at least partially be assigned to Woakes, he defended well, played strongly on the drive through the offside and looked more than a match for anything India had to offer - as if mild-mannerly showing the world that the nine first class centuries he has for Warwickshire were not acquired by accident.

An nearly obligatory slightly sticky spell in the 90s aside, it was a near-chanceless innings -Woakes missed just 3.8% of his deliveries, the least of any batsman in this series - but equally never shied away from playing his shots, ending the day, by CricViz calculations, having played 31% attacking shots - the most he's ever played in a Test innings of 15 or more balls.

Pujara and Kohli were involved in a run out which led to Pujara's wicket and turned the match in England's favour.

Both off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and recalled left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav went wicketless, with India having cause to regret dropping paceman Umesh Yadav.

The exit of England's all-time leading Test run-scorer meant 20-year-old debutant batsman Ollie Pope walked out with the hosts in trouble at 32 for two.
