India reach 124/2 in second innings at stumps on Day 3

England's Ben Stokes shares a laugh with a team-mate at training this week

With England 2-0 ahead in the five-match series, Joe Root made a decision to launch another assault on India's brittle top order after winning the toss and Chris Woakes obliged with three wickets in the morning session to reduce the tourists to 82-3.

It was Pandya who turned out to be the cynosure of all eyes today, registering career-best figures of 5 for 28 to help India bundle out England for 161 in their first innings and give his side the upperhand for the first time in the series.

All-rounder Pandya then took the next three wickets - dismissing Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid and Broad - to claim a five-wicket haul in just 29 deliveries.

India were 2/124 in their second innings at stumps, an already commanding lead of 292 runs in a game where victory would see them keep the series alive at 2-1 down in a five-match contest.

England are 2-0 up in the five match Test series; a win in Nottingham would seal the series for them. A good start led to Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane cashing in. The pre-lunch session was dominated both by India and England. Generally I try to seam it as well, but when you're trying to swing it, you tend to bowl full and driveable balls.

Debutant Rishabh Pant, who became the first Indian to score his first Test runs with a six on day one, was the first casualty as he was bowled by Stuart Broad.

Ailing young orca J-50 gets novel medical treatment at sea
An ailing and emaciated orca named Scarlet may get food and antibiotics soon - if biologists can find her before it's too late. He says the whale is incredibly skinny but was swimming well and there were no obvious signs of abnormality with her skin.

Admittedly, the overcast conditions made batting hard, but England´s top-order problems run deeper than bad luck with the weather.

From that moment, England were always fighting a rearguard action, with Ollie Pope edging down the leg side before Pandya had captain Joe Root caught by Rahul's fingertips at slip.

It's all over for England's Ben Stokes as team-mate Jonny Bairstow watches on.

But one of Pandya's wickets sparked major controversy, with England skipper Root standing his ground after KL Rahul claimed a low catch at second slip. Bowls an inswinger and Pant gets his first catch in Test cricket. He short, rising ball nicked to Pant showed India were executing their bowling plans perfectly, after the batting lessons had been put to great use on the first day.

On the very first ball of the next over, Bumrah removed Jennings caught behind as well.

But the exit of left-handers Alastair Cook (29) and Keaton Jennings (20) on that total sparked a collapse that saw eight wickets lost for 74 runs.
