However, Jennings and skipper Joe Root stood firm, forging a partnership, and scored patient knocks, before Mohammad Shami claimed Jennings for 42(98). Shami then claimed Malan in quick succession, leaving England reeling at 112/3 before Bairstow joined skipper Root.

As Bairstow was pacing his Innings steadily, picking the bad deliveries, building a partnership with Root, the latter was run out by Kohli's efforts, after scoring a composed and responsible 80(156). Eventually, Bairstow was dismissed in quick time by Umesh Yadav, after scoring a rapid 70(88).

Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the Indian bowlers as he ended with impressive figures of 4/60.
