India will look to pick up England’s remaining two wickets early on Day 3 and then bat well to fight their way back into the ongoing third Test at Headingley.

England skipper Joe Root continued his fine run with the bat in the series as he brought up his third century in three games. England finished Day 2 at 423 for eight, leading India by 345 runs with two wickets in hand. Apart from Root, Haseeb Hameed, Rory Burns and Dawid Malan scored half-centuries. For India, Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers with figures of three for 87 while Mohammed Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja picked up two wickets apiece. Jasprit Bumrah castled Root but not before he batted England into a commanding position in the ongoing Test. (LIVE SCORECARD)
