India began the Test in control of proceedings with KL Rahul scoring a big century in the first innings before England fought back with a Joe Root ton and a slender lead of 27. India’s much talked about batters then failed to get going before Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane thwarted England’s bowlers on Day 4.
On Day 5, Shami and Bumrah made it their show after the early wicket of Rishabh Pant, putting on 89 runs for the 9th wicket. Shami brought up his fifty with a 92m six of Moeen Ali before India declared, asking England to chase 272.
