England vs India, 5th Test Day 3 Live Score Updates: Virat Kohli got off to a solid start after India lost their second wicket against England in their second innings. Stuart Broad dismissed Hanuma Vihari shortly after Tea, while James Anderson had earlier got the better of Shubman Gill. The onus will be Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara to put India in a strong position heading into Day 3. Earlier, Mohammed Siraj took four wickets, while skipper Jasprit Bumrah took three as India bowled out England on 284, taking a solid 132-run lead in the first innings of the ongoing fifth Test at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Jonny Bairstow lost his wicket to Mohammed Shami on 106 runs on Sunday before Stuart Broad got dismissed by Siraj. Bairstow had earlier helped England bounce back from a precarious state of 83/5 in the ongoing fifth and final Test match against India at Edgbaston, Birmingham. He along with Stokes had stitched a 66-run partnership for the sixth wicket before adding 92 runs for the seventh wicket with Sam Billings. A day prior, Jasprit Bumrah had returned figures of 3/35 to keep England under the pump while Mohammad Shami and Mohammed Siraj had claimed a wicket each to further pile misery on the hosts. (LIVE SCORECARD)
