Ind v Eng highlights today – third test day five from Trent Bridge, Nottingham (England) Wednesday 22nd August 2018. Today India need to take just one wicket to win this third test match and England require another 210 runs with 1 wicket remaining. England were four down at 62 after that BA Stokes and JC Buttler took charge and blasted their innings. JC Buttler smashed 106 runs off 176 deliveries. He completed his innings with the help of twenty-one boundaries. When his wicket dismissed then it was (82.3 lbw while leaving the ball! Buttler reviews. He has to. But he won’t find much joy here. It’s very full. It’s always heading towards the stumps. Very very strange that he’d leave this ball. Pins him on the knee roll. And ball-tracking says it would clip middle stump. Umpire’s call – and Gaffaney had said it was out. So Buttler has to go. India find the wicket they’ve been looking for all afternoon and the Trent Bridge crowd rises as one to applaud a fine cricketer who might just have fallen in love with Test cricket all over again 231/5).
BA Stokes was the second most runs scorer from England’s second innings with 62 runs off 187 balls. When his wicket dismissed then it happened like this (85.5 squares him up and takes him out! Stokes’ fight. All of his application. Undone by the new ball. One that pitches outside leg, forcing him to think about playing through midwicket. Then it darts away off the seam to take the leading edge and settle in the hands of second slip. England are wilting in the face of some sensational bowling and this shiny little red thing. 241/8). He smashed six 4s in his innings. AU Rashid 30 not out and JM Anderson 8 not out. JJ Bumrah took five wickets in 29 overs with 85 runs, I Sharma took two wickets in 20 overs with 70 runs, R Ashwin bowled 22 overs and leaked 40 runs, Mohammed Shami was the most expensive bowler from Indian bowling line he bowled 18 overs and gave 76 runs with one wicket.
