Team India was bundled out for 445 in the first innings on Day 2 of the ongoing third Test against England at Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday, January 12.

The hosts resumed their first innings at 326/5, with Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav on 110 and 1, respectively. India lost an early wicket in Kuldeep Yadav for 4 at 331/6. Jadeja was hoping to carry on hosts' innings but his gritty innings came to an end after he was bowled and caught by Joe Root for 112 at 331/7.

After Jadeja's dismissal, debutant Dhruv Jurel was joined by Ravichandran Ashwin at the crease to carry on India's first innings' batting. The pair steadied India's batting and took the team past the 400-run mark. In the 102nd over, India were penalised with five runs after Ravichandran Ashwin ran along the middle of the pitch, which is against MCC Law.

Jurel and Ashwin formed a crucial 77-run partnership for the eighth wicket before the latter was dismissed for 37 by Rehan Ahmed at 408/8. Then, Rehan Ahmed struck another wicket by dismissing debutant Dhruv Jurel for 46 at 415/5.

Jasprit Bumrah plays quickfire cameo

Jasprit Bumrah played a cameo of 26 off 28 balls to help India post a total of 445 on the board before being dismissed by Mark Wood in the second session.

Bumrah has been quite sensational with the ball in the ongoing series. However, the speedster made a crucial contribution with the bat and incredible application.

Bumrah walked out to bat after Ashwin's dismissal at 408/8 and smashed 3 fours and a six. His rare batting brilliance surprised England bowlers as displayed great application at the crease and have a proper balance between defence and attack.

For England, Mark Wood-led the bowling attack with four wickets, while Rehan Ahmed picked two wickets. Veteran pacer James Anderson, Tom Hartley and Joe Root contributed to visitors bowling with a wicket each.
