The third day of the series belonged to fast bowler, Ishant Sharma’s mindblowing spell and Virat Kohli’s knock. The two cricketers kept everyone hooked with the match. Ishant Sharma was on fire yesterday as he went on to give one of his best performance in test series.
First it was Ravichandran Ashwin, who gave a powerful start to Indian cricket team by taking the wicket of opener Joe Root. After Root was dismissed, the batsmen of England cricket team were looking determined and were looking out to build a strong partnership to put pressure on the Indian cricket team, however, Ishant Sharma was in no mood to let that happen.
Utilizing all his experience in the match, Ishant Sharma took five wickets in the match. Ishant Sharma removed Jonny Bairstow (28) and Ben Stokes (6) just at the stroke of lunch even as England lost the key wickets of opener Keaton Jennings (8), skipper Joe Root (14), Dawid Malan (20) and Stuart Broad(11) in regular intervals.
