# Woho! Another wicket for India. This time, Hardik Pandya sends back Ben Stokes. Hardik Pandya replaced Shami quite a while back. Two more wickets to go for India.

# Bumrah seems to be is form. He takes another wicket and this time its Chris Woakes. The ball bounced and reached wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, hitting Woakes on his glove.

# And the 6th wicket for Team India! Jonny Bairstow walks in and promptly heads back as Bumrah shows his magic - a two in two for the Indian man. England 235/6.

# Jasprit Bumrah takes the much-awaited 5th wicket for India. Big wicket for Kohli and his men. Jos Buttler made to go off the field on a score of 106.

# Jos Buttler reaches his century. The England batsman has been playing wonderfully so far. Both Buttler and Stokes - who reached his fifty sometime back - look like at home. Click here for the detailed scorecard.

# Buttler and Stokes continue to manage a stable partnership. On the other hand, Kolhi and his squad target the wicket at the moment.

# It was an excellent session, exactly the way England wanted. Stokes and Buttler ensured stable partnership, scoring 89 runs in 27 overs. Tea break for now! England 173/4

# Jos Buttler reaches 50, the 9th half century in his Test career. India continue to hunt for a wicket. Umesh Yadav has, meanwhile, replaced Mohammed Shami, who slipped while chasing a ball.
