Shardul Thakur scored his second consecutive 50 of the Test match and his fourth fifty of his career. With India losing three early wickets in the first session, Thakur came in and consolidated after a watchful start. In the process, he added a hundred-run stand with Rishabh Pant who himself has also surpassed a fifty.

After coming in, he looked positive from the start and with Pant at the other end added exactly 100 runs for the seventh wicket.

Finally, it was skipper Joe Root who dismissed him by getting him caught at slips. Kohli too was dismissed in the slip cordon while trying to defend a ball that spun from Moeen Ali.

These two wickets have given enough proof that the wicket has started to turn and these are ominous signs for the England batters.
