Rishabh Pant was finally caught at slip to end his innings

Rishabh Pant gave England a taste of their own medicine as his counter-attacking century flipped India’s fortunes on day one of their rearranged series decider at Edgbaston.

England were making all the running when they reduced their opponents to 98-5, but were taken apart by Pant’s rampant 146 off just 111 balls.

The wicketkeeper hit 19 fours and four sixes as he dominated a stand of 222 with Ravindra Jadeja (83no), smashing his way out of a sticky spot in the way England did on several occasions during their 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand.

England’s buccaneering methods have been dubbed ‘Bazball’ in honour of head coach Brendon McCullum, but Pant has always played the game at his own tempo and this was a timely reminder of his own maverick qualities.

India closed on 338-7 after Joe Root’s part-time spin finally ended Pant’s assault, James Anderson having taken three wickets and Matthew Potts the prize scalp of Virat Kohli.

Swashbuckling Rishabh Pant century turns India fortunes around on fascinating opening day against England

England vs India 338-7

A fascinating day’s cricket and it sets up another intriguing Test match. Hopefully the rain largely stays away although there is some forecast for tomorrow.

England got off to a rip-roaring start and reduced India to 98-5 with Jimmy Anderson taking three wickets and Matty Potts two.

But Rishabh Pant (146) and Ravindra Jadeja (83 no) rebuilt with a 200+ partnership and put India in control. England took two quick wickets late in the day as Pant was finally removed but India closed on 338-7. A day that was in the balance - maybe India with the slight edge?

STUMPS! India 338-7 (Jadeja 83*, Shami 0*) - 73 overs

At Lord’s last summer, Shami hit an unbeaten 56 as part of a great partnership with Bumrah that set India up for a famous win. He’s proven he can bat, so this strategy to completely protect him is rather odd.

Anyway, possibly the last over of the day or maybe two more at most. Jadeja and Shami have a chat in the middle to slow things down and make sure this is the last over.

That’s more like it from Jadeja - a classy flick through leg for FOUR! Too straight from Potts but classily dispatched. Perhaps a run out chance from the next ball but a shy at the stumps is wild and it races for FOUR overthrows. Shami then sees the rest of the over out.

And it is the final over of the day. STUMPS! India end on 338-7

India 329-7 (Jadeja 74*, Shami 0*) - 72 overs

There’s been a pattern in recent overs - fourth ball single from Jadeja and Shami then surviving two. Not the most aggressive strategy but I guess the aim is to get them through to close?

It happens again from this Stokes over, although Shami has a fish outside off from the fifth ball but can’t connect.

Here’s how Stokes got Thakur as India’s seventh wicket fell

India 328-7 (Jadeja 73*, Shami 0*) - 71 overs

Flicked off the hips by Jadeja, past a diving Billings. Stopped short of the boundary for two - hard to tell if that was thigh pad or bat but it goes in the scorebook as bat.

Superb bowling by Potts as he angles one into the body and it beats the edge! Jadeja then takes a single to cover before Shami survives the final two balls. Around 10 minutes of action left today

REVIEW! India 325-7 (Jadeja 70*, Shami 0*) - 70 overs

Stokes continues with Jadeja on strike. A couple of singles turned down before Jadeja takes one. Then off the final delivery, Stokes thinks Shami has tickled one down leg side. APPEAL but umpire says no. England REVIEW but ultimately nothing showing on Ultra Edge.

VIDEO: England finally remove Rishabh Pant

It took a long time but here’s how England finally got rid of Rishabh Pant for 146. Nice ball by Root and well taken.

1656697275

India 324-7 (Jadeja 69*, Shami 0*) - 69 overs

Mohammed Shami comes in at No 9. The onus is on Jadeja to push the scoring now you’d think.

Matty Potts back into the attack - Jadeja on strike and turns down a single off the second and third balls but does take one off the fourth delivery. Two balls for Shami to survive and he duly does

OUT! Thakur c Billings b Stokes 1. India 323-7

Another no-ball filled over for Stokes as he bowls two of them. But then with the final (eighth) delivery he gets his first wicket of the day!

A sharp bouncer surprises Thakur, it’s right in on his gloves and Billings tumbles forward to take the catch. the umpire thinks about it and gives it OUT! There was contact with the gloves.

Momentum back with England?
