    If Pant stays at the crease for 20 overs, India should win it.

    This guy plays like Afridi.

    I meant same mindset.

    I think you forgot about 2005 Kanpur massacre. Also, he scored 141 in Test against India (Pakistan went on to win the game).

    Considering the fact that England chased well in last 3 test matches vs NZ , a score of 350 may not be safe. But the 'bazball' approach will sometimes backfire and a big margin loss is as good a reality as is an extraordinary succesful chase.
    Besides Indian bowlers are ingood rhythm and pick up wickets regularly.
    The first test of this series ended in draw but at 50 for 1 chasing 190ish score ,India probably would have won that one and the series before this 'rescheduled ' test

    Ideally India would be hoping they can bat atleast till lunch on day 4 to feel safer. But Root,Stokes and Barstow can chase 400 in current form...so fun times ahead. Having said that the Indian bowlers are a quality bunch compared to NZ bowling recently so it wont be easy for the Englishmen either

    Pujara, Pant fatten India's lead after Bairstow masterclass

    An unbeaten 50-run stand between Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant put India in a commanding position at the end of day three after Jonny Bairstow's brilliant hundred.

    The summer of Bairstow continues

    After a circumspect start last evening, Jonny Bairstow was back at his obliterating best in the morning session of day three. Right off the bat, he took the attack to the Indian bowlers, putting them on the backfoot. It wasn't long before he brought up his half-century and he was galloping towards a three-figure score at the rate of knots. Bairstow also overtook Australian Usman Khawaja to become the leading run-scorer in 2022, with over 850 runs. His intent gave a real impetus to the England innings. For the most part, Bairstow looked unstoppable with only rain forcing him from scoring as an early lunch was taken. A slight delay after the lunch break due to a wet outfield, but when play resumed, Bairstow raced to his fifth Test century in 2022 – the most in this calendar year in men's Tests.

    Stokes' luck finally runs out

    Like Bairstow, skipper Ben Stokes also walked out with an aggressive mindset. But his intention to take on the bowling also created some opportunities for the bowlers. He was first dropped by Shardul Thakur, when he shimmied down the track against Shami, only to miscue his shot badly. Later, Indian captain, Jasprit Bumrah put down a sitter at mid-off as Stokes attempted an aggressive shot against Thakur. Off the very next delivery, Stokes was finally dismissed for 25 as Bumrah took a blinder, with Thakur having the last laugh.

    Shami catches the big fish as Siraj wraps up England's tail

    After a few overs of Bumrah bowling from one end, and Thakur from another, the India captain brought Ravindra Jadeja's spin into the action as the visitors kept their search for a wicket on. Shortly after, Mohammad Shami was handed the ball for the first time in the afternoon session, and he did not disappoint. On his first ball, he delivered an outside-off full-length delivery, tempting centurion Bairstow to drive on, only to edge it into the hands of Virat Kohli at first slip. Shami on his hunt for a wicket caught the biggest fish of the innings, bringing in some much-needed joy in the India camp. The England batter, on his way back, received a standing ovation from the Edgbaston crowd for his innings of grit – a 140-ball 106 (14 fours and two sixes).

    Bairstow's wicket sparked England's collapse courtesy of Mohammed Siraj. From 241/7, England were bowled out for 284, with a first-innings deficit of 132 runs. Siraj first had Stuart Broad caught behind by Rishabh Pant for 1, then he had Sam Billings bowled for 36 before wrapping up the England innings with Matty Potts' wicket, who was caught by Shreyas Iyer at second slip.

    Pujara fight helps balloon India's lead

    After the innings break, India openers Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara walked out to bat while England handed the new ball to veteran pace ace James Anderson. Gill, for the second time in the match, fell prey to Anderson, caught at the second slip by Zak Crawley. India 4/1 in 0.3 overs. After an early hiccup, Pujara and Vihari took India to tea at 37/1.

    Vihari departed soon after the tea break and Virat Kohli's stay at the crease did not last for long either – a fasntastic delivery from Stokes bringing about his downfall as Root lapped up a sharp catch at first slip.

    Pujara was his usual patient self and despite surviving a couple of close calls and a nasty blow to his fingers, brought up his 33rd Test fifty. His partner Rishabh Pant continued in the same aggressive fashion he employed in the first innings and together the duo helped India's lead past 250.

    England played superb cricket against New Zealand with bat, ball, and in the field & fully deserved their 3-0 victory.

    This match has been a steep learning curve for them however. Though it has not been all bad. Bairstowís form and Anderson being evergreen are big positives to take away. Plus young Potts looks like a keeper.

    Although it doesnít take the shine off their recent success, this experience is a useful reality check for England. I think the Test will end in the next 3-4 sessions with a convincing result for India, a win by perhaps 200+ runs.

    England v South Africa in a few weeks looks like it could be a very close and exciting series.

    He went after the bowlers very quickly during 1st innings. India were something like 100/5 and Pant started to counterattack.

    Afridi used to have a similar role. Counterattacking/pinch hitting.

    Afridi used to have a similar role. Counterattacking/pinch hitting.
    All counter attacking batsmen are not pinch hitters. Afridi used to often slog without picking a good ball to slog. Many great batsmen including Ponting, SRT have slogged, but they used to pick a ball to slog and didn't try on every ball. Pant does not slog like Afridi otherwise it will be impossible to score so many away tons outside Asia.

    To put it in perspective, If Pant manages to get two more tons in SENA then he will be among the top 5 Ton's scorer in SENA from entire history of Asian batsmen. If I am not wrong, he has a few around 90 score as well. Someone with mentality of Afridi will never come close to making it near top 5 ton scorer in SENA.

    Pant and Afridi are totally different batsmen in all aspects. Just like SRT and Kalu were different batsmen despite both being aggressive opener. One was pinch hitter and other was not.

    That would be miracle but still tragically funny. Thats because then rain would have saved England escape with a draw in the first and fifth test of this series but still would loose series 2 to 1. Tragic and hilarious at same time

    Pant has done really well for us and ensured that the fragile middle order doesn't get exposed by batting at no.5. Hopefully, if he can bat one hour longer today he will be able to make a difference and put us in a commanding position.
