Kohli Dismissed On 0
While fans were expecting a lot from the Indian skipper Kohli. But, he got out by Ben Stokes. Ajinkya Rahane too failed to play a decent inning as he managed to score just 27 notches.

Rishabh Pant single-handedly made sure that the Indians don’t lose their grip on the match. In a spectacular hundred, he made 101 runs in just 118 balls. However, he played as if it was an ODI match against the English.

Sundar Fights On
While Pant got out on day 2 itself by James Anderson. And Ashwin got out after scoring just 13 runs. But, Washington Sundar held his nerve and is currently not out at the score of 60 runs.
