'It was just a shame for England that Jonny Bairstow fell so tamely to the first ball after tea. You sensed from his body language before the break that he was in the mood. Another hour of him might have made a difference.

And however hard Ben Foakes fought with the tail, you do wonder if there’s a case for him and Bairstow to swap places in a situation like this, allowing Foakes to bat with a top-order player, as he did so well with Root in the first innings, and Bairstow to use his power game once the lower order are in,' Nasser Hussain wrote in his column.

'But let’s take nothing away from India, who were superb all day. Rohit Sharma got it spot on when he opened the bowling with Ravichandran Ashwin, after delaying his entry for too long in the first innings at Rajkot. That allowed Duckett, who has struggled against Ashwin, to get off to a flyer, and Rohit wasn’t going to make that mistake again,' he added.
