Ajinkya Rahane picks the length early and drills it through covers for a boundary.Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are out in the middle for India while Moeen Ali will start the proceedings for England.And, we’re back!! Lunch: India are in a spot of bother after losing two quick wickets early in the first session. England seamers are causing all sorts of troubles for the Indian batsmen. James Anderson opened his account yesterday while Stuart Broad’s disciplined line earned him two crucial wickets today. Broad and Anderson showed there’s enough bounce and swing in the pitch that once looked flat during the England innings. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have a huge task at their hands to play out the England bowlers who are currently bowling with intent. Rahane was also lucky not to be ruled out caught behind off Moeen Ali. Team India need to stabilize their innings and these two will have to play out of their skins until the ball is a bit softer to score freely. On the other hand, England will continue to exert pressure on the Indian batsmen while trying to sneak in another wicket in the next session. With Virat Kohli(18) and Ajinkya Rahane(11) at the crease, India are currently at 108/3 after 40 overs.That’s a MAIDEN by Woakes!!Chris Woakes will bowl the FINAL OVER before lunch!! advertisementWith Virat Kohli(17) and Ajinkya Rahane(8) at the crease, India are currently at 104/3 after 35 overs.NINE RUNS off the over!!34.6 overs: FOUR!!
