senior
pacer
Ishant
Sharma
gave
England
back-to-back
blows
as
he
trapped
Haseeb
Hameed
and
Jonny
Bairstow
at
the
stroke
of
tea
break
and
brought
India
to
the
driver’s
seat
in
the
contest.

Ishant
was
the
last
bowler
captain
Virat
Kohli
introduced
in
the
attack
and
gave
quick
blows
to
the
hosts
in
his
fiery
spell.

when

ended
his

Umpire

Bumrah
started
bowling
for
India
in
the
final
innings
and
dismissed
Rory
Burns
for
a
duck
in
the
first
over
while
Shami
dismissed
Dom
Sibley
for
a
duck
in
the
next
over
and
left
England
gasping
for
breath
before
India
declared
innings
at
298/8
and
set
a
target
of
271
for
the
hosts
to
chase.

Earlier
in
the
morning
session,
Shami
and
Bumrah
created
a
record
as
they
stitched
the
highest
ninth-wicket
partnership
for
India
in
England
and
helped
their
team
post
286/8
in
108
overs
in
the
second
innings,
and
took
a
lead
of
259
runs
on
day
five.

Shami
stole
the
show
with
his
bat
as
the
right-handed
batsman
slammed
a
half-century
in
the
second
innings
and
bludgeoned
the
England
bowlers.
It
was
Shami’s
clean
hitting
that
not
only
dashed
the
hopes
of
Joe
Root-led
side
of
restricting
India
to
a
low
total
and
extract
a
win.

The
entire
Indian
side
came
downstairs
at
the
Lord’s
and
gave
a
warm
reception
to
the
bowlers
who
put
up
a
great
fightback
as
Team
India
lost
its
biggest
hope

Rishabh
Pant

very
early
in
the
morning
session
on
the
final
day.
However,
the
tailenders
Ishant
Sharma
(16),
Bumrah
(30*),
and
Shami
(52*)
steered
the
team
to
a
respectable
total.

India
scored
105
runs
from
22
runs
in
the
morning
session
and
lost
the
wickets
of
Pant
(22)
and
Ishant.
