English fast bowlers routed India in the first innings of third test

James Anderson led bowling attack bundled out India for 78 runs

James Anderson led English fast bowling attack demolished the Indian batting on the first day of third test match at Headingley. After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli decided to bat first. This decision proved disastrous for India. India was all out for just 78 runs. India seems in deep trouble in this test match after winning the second test and taken 1-0 lead in the five match series.

After pacers wreaked havoc with the ball, openers Haseeb Hameed (60*) and Rory Burns (52*) put on an impressive unbeaten century stand as England got to 120 for no loss at stumps on Day 1 of the Headingley Test. England also took their lead to 42 as India were earlier dismissed for a paltry 78 in their first innings. 

James Anderson (3/6) and Craig Overton (3/14) claimed three wickets each, while Ollie Robinson (2/16) and Sam Curran (2/21) took two each as the England bowlers wreaked havoc on the visitors.

England completely dominated the proceedings on the opening day of the third cricket Test against India by reaching 120 for no loss after bundling out the visitors for a paltry 78 in their first innings in Leeds on Wednesday.

At the close of play, openers Haseeb Hameed (60 not out) and Rory Burns (52 not out) remained unconquered at the crease and took England's lead to 42 runs. Opener Rohit Sharma (19) and Ajinkya Rahane (18) being the only batsmen to reach double digit scores.

Scores: India 1st innings: 78 all out in 40.4 overs (Rohit Sharma 19, Ajinkya Rahane 18; James Anderson 3/6, Craig Overton 3/14). England 1st innings: 120 for no loss in 42 overs (Haseeb Hameed 60 not out, Rory Burns 52 not out).
