What a Test match! One that doesn’t last even six full sessions! In a Test match that turns out to be the shortest since World War II, both India and England encounter embarrassing batting collapses as the spinners make merry — majority of the wickets coming off deliveries that don’t turn much. What a game for Axar Patel, as he collects a 10-wicket match haul in only his second Test appearance, while Ravichandran Ashwin becomes the second fastest bowler to 400 Test wickets.

While England are now out of contention for a place in the World Test Championship final, they know they still can spoil India’s party by beating them in the fourth and final Test, which will take place at the same venue, with an Indian defeat resulting in Australia qualifying for the final. For that to happen however, England will have to bat, bowl and field out of their skins if they are to stop this Indian unit from making it 3-1 in the Test series!

We hope you enjoyed our coverage of the topsy-turvy third Test between India and England. Do join us in our coverage of the series finale on 4th March. For now, on behalf of my colleague Vishnu, I bid you all a very good night!

20:22 (IST)

Axar Patel, Man of the Match: When it happens, it feels so easy. I don't think much. I just want to continue this form. I am happy that when I am not able to contribute with the bat, I am able to produce with the ball.  

The mindset of batters is they play out couple of maidens, they either go for a sweep or try to hit over the infield. They call me Wasim bhai (Wasim Akram) because they feel my arm ball is very lethal. Ajju Bhai (Ajinkya Rahane) called me that and Pant has picked it up. I would want this wicket to remain the same for the final Test as well as I am picking up wickets.

20:19 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: I don’t think the result went our way, but I think the quality of batting was upto the standard from both teams. We were 100/3, and were hoping to end up with many more runs. It was a very good pitch to bat on, the ball coming on nicely with the odd ball turning. Below-par batting from both teams, with our spinners being a little more effective, that’s why we got this result. It was bizarre that of the 30 wickets, 21 were off straight deliveries. I feel batsmen need to trust their defence much more. This was a classy example of batsmen not applying themselves enough. Bumrah said “I’m getting workload management while playing the game” while Ishy said “It’s my 100th match and I’m not getting to bowl”. Eventually he was very happy he got to bowl three balls. A lot of guys didn’t get into the game. It was a bizarre game, I don’t think I’ve ever been part of such a game. (On Axar) This guy comes in and rolls faster than Jaddu at a faster height. I don’t know what is it with Gujarati left-arm spinners. It’s impossible to sweep him and defend him all day. For Axar to come in and bowl like this is outstanding. We all need to stand up and take notice of what Ashwin has contributed to Indian cricket. 400 is an outstanding achievements. In Test cricket, he’s surely a modern-day legend. As a captain, I’m so pleased he plays for us. We are going to prepare ourselves for the hard grind. Few days extra obviously feels nice.

20:13 (IST)

England captain, Joe Root: We were 70-2. But we did not capitalise on it. 250 on this wicket would have made a difference. We will come back using this hurt and come back as a better team. It was high quality bowling. Both sides struggled on that wicket. We don't define ourselves on a performance like this.

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 3rd Test Live Updates: Rohit smacks back-to-back fours off the first two balls, before smashing the ball into the stands beyond the midwicket fence to finish the job in emphatic fashion as India chase down the 49-run target without losing a wicket. The match doesn’t even last six full sessions!

 Day 1 report: Axar Patel claimed six wickets as India gained the upper hand in their crucial day-night third Test against England on Wednesday, bowling out their rivals for 112 and then getting within 13 runs of taking the lead.

Only the loss of captain Virat Kohli in the final over spoiled the opening day for India as they moved to 99 for three at the world's biggest cricket stadium with Rohit Sharma on 57 and Ajinkya Rahane on one.

Spin bowlers again dominated with Patel taking the starring role while England's Jack Leach claimed two wickets, including Kohli for 27.

The Indian captain saw one tough chance dropped by Ollie Pope on 24 but soon after played Leach's left-arm spin onto his stumps and walked off visibly furious with himself.

Patel said the pink ball "skids" more off the pitch giving him more opportunity to get more lbw decisions. Three England victims went leg before.

After taking five wickets on his debut in India's crushing win in the second of the four Tests, Patel said he had carried his "confidence" into the pink-ball game.

With the series poised at 1-1 England won the toss and chose to bat but survived only 48.4 overs.

Patel linked up with Ravichandran Ashwin, who took three wickets, while fast bowler Ishant Sharma, playing his 100th Test, claimed one.

Amid a general collapse, Zak Crawley, returning after missing two tests through injury, top-scored with 53.

Captain Joe Root (17) Ben Foakes (12) and Jofra Archer (11) were the only others to get into double figures.

Crawley put up some resistance with his fourth Test fifty and a 47-run third-wicket stand with Root.

Sharma fifty and pitch invader

Ashwin claimed the England captain with another lbw.

Root reviewed the call but replays showed the ball would have hit the top of leg stump and he left the field to loud cheers from the home crowd.

Crawley said England's batting specialists had let down their bowlers.

"I don't think it will require a miracle actually," he added, however, on the prospects of an England fightback.

"Things will have to go our way, we are going to have to play extremely well but we are very capable."

Crawley predicted that the pitch will continue to break up which could help England's bowlers.

"If we bat well in the third innings and put a bit of pressure on them we can defend anything if the pitch continues to get worse."

England hit back with two wickets after Jofra Archer sent back Shubman Gill for 11 and Cheteshwar Pujara fell for a duck off Leach.

But Sharma stood firm for his 12th Test fifty and put on 64 runs with Kohli, delighting the crowd at India's revamped venue with a capacity of 110,000 fans.

Only half the tickets have been put on sale due to the coronavirus pandemic and a turnout of over 30,000 was reported on the opening day.

India's innings witnessed drama after the new LED lights went off for two minutes in the second over and then for 30 seconds in the 12th.

A young pitch invader also made his way onto the field in the final session and attempted to get close to Kohli before being escorted away by security guards.

England were frustrated by two TV umpire calls, including a stumping chance of Sharma, on 53, and a Ben Stokes catch that was turned down early in the innings.

Root had a long conversation with the on-field umpire on both occasions. He was heard calling for "consistency".

IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Punjab Kings (PBKS): Arshdeep Singh, who has been impressive so far today, is given the final over of the evening. Starts off with a wide delivery down the off side. Just a single off the next two deliveries as the equation comes down to 11 off 3. Samson goes downtown over the extra cover/wide long on fence for a maximum to bring the equation down to 5 off 2. Samson denies the single off the fifth ball after not quite connecting, choosing to face the last delivery with five needed. The Rajasthan skipper goes big towards the extra cover fence off the last ball, but fails to get the distance as Hooda collects the winning catch.
