India trailed by 56 runs but the match remained too close to call with three days to go. The series is tied at 1-1, with a test in Manchester to come starting next week.
Resuming on 53-3 and quickly losing nightwatchman Craig Overton (1) and Dawid Malan (31), England was thankful to Pope for anchoring crucial stands of 89 runs with Jonny Bairstow (37) and 71 runs with Moeen Ali (35) to creep ahead of the tourists’ meager Day 1 total of 191. However, a 60-ball 50 by Woakes, a great batting option at No. 9, added crucial late-innings runs to frustrate India.There was no top-order collapse in the second innings, though, with Sharma and Rahul looking compact and solid on a pitch that is looking better and better to bat on.
