IndiaVs Eng 3rd Test: Joe Root hits century

Skipper Joe Root frustrated the Indian bowlers with yet another century as he continued to gather quick runs after losing the openers in the first session on the second day of the third Test at Headingley in Leeds.

Root scored his 23rd Test ton to put his team in a commanding position. Earlier, Mohammed Siraj struck gold as he removed Dawid Malan right on the stroke of Tea. India got the much-needed breakthroughs of openers Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed as pacer Mohammed Shami and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja went through the defences of the English batsmen.

Both Hameed and Burns looked solid at the start of the second day’s play but the latter was castled by a Shami delivery that came in. England were placed at 333/3 after 103.2 overs with a lead of 255 runs. England dominated the first day at Headingley as India were bundled out for 78 in their first innings on Wednesday. James Anderson took three for six while Sam Curran, Ollie Robinson and Craig Overton all chipped in with the ball to hand advantage to England.
