The third Test between England and India at Trent Bridge ended early on the fifth day despite resistance from Adil Rashid.

England gave their level best to make a match out of the chase of 521 runs. Jos Buttler’s 106, Ben Stokes’ 62 and their 169-run partnership saved England a lot of face. Jasprit Bumrah’s five-wicket haul was enough for India to see through the resistance, as the ask of chasing 521 runs was too much for the England lower order batsmen.

Adil Rashid and Stuart Broad stitched a 50 runs partnership for the 9th wicket and managed to stretch the innings into the 5th and final day. However, the end was inevitable and it came quickly as Ashwin removed James Anderson and England was dismissed for 317.

India won the Test by 203 runs.
