Coming to the 3rd Test, Kohli and Shastri will aim to get team combination right with the most awaited change likely to be the inclusion of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might replace Dinesh Karthik, who is in awful form.

Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli. But during his knock, he became the country's highest run-getting Test skipper on foreign shores, surpassing Sourav Ganguly.

There were three early wickets for Woakes, none for Stokes but an important catch at first slip for the returning resident match-winner when India captain Kohli fell for 97 - edging a drive at an Adil Rashid leg-break.

Pant walked in to bat after Kohli was dismissed on 97 by Rashid.

Virat Kohli's dogged determination was well complemented by Ajinkya Rahane's application as India put up their best batting performance of the series reaching 307 for 6 against England on the first day of the third cricket Test. Pant secured 24 runs off 51 balls. He had been given a ripple of applause as he came on to bowl in the morning but, not at his best, delivered 15 wicketless overs for 54 runs.

"When you see a team dominate like England did at Lord's you get a bit bored but today has been a proper contest". The duo always kept the scoreboard ticking despite the England bowlers maintaining a good channel.

Ben Stokes of England collides with India batsman Shikhar Dhawan. Woakes removed Dhawan, Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara (14) in quick succession as India from 60 for no loss went into the lunch at 82 for 3. But there was finally some relief at Trent Bridge on Saturday. They played their shots, ran their singles and twos as India maintained a healthy run-rate of 3.52 pe over throughout the day. Every player remembers the first run he scored, against which bowler and on which ground he did so. Focus will also be on Murali Vijay as the Tamil Nadu opener received a pair at Lord's.

Indian vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane says he analysed his batting a lot after twin failures in the first two Tests against England, the effort resulting in a characteristically gritty 81 at Trent Bridge.

Twitterati came up with an impressive message for the future wicketkeeper-batsman of India. Rahul was walking away until Pujara stopped him for a review.

Dhawan was caught at second slip by Buttler as he edged one off Woakes in the 19th over.
