In 17 Tests since Joe Root became captain, England have been dismissed for under 300 in their first innings seven times. Speaking of, forecast of rain could be India's saving grace. On the Day 2, English bowlers used the conditions perfectly and restricted India for just 107 runs in the first innings.

Woakes took six for 70 and five for 32 in a match return of 11 for 102 against Pakistan at Lord´s in 2016.

He completed his maiden Test century on Saturday, when he shared an England record sixth-wicket stand against India of 189 with Bairstow (93). That followed a first-day washout in London on Thursday. As per the latest reports, England is two down for 37 runs as Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav sent Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings back to the pavilion.

Chris Woakes, recalled for this match after fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Ben Stokes was omitted because of an ongoing trial for affray, was then 120 not out, with Sam Curran unbeaten on 22.

"I was probably getting a little bit nervous", Woakes said.

When Jos Buttler went for 24 - Shami's third leg-before wicket - England looked capable of crumbling again. "I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden you start thinking of three figures and you start wafting at things outside off-stump, which I hadn't been doing". But Bairstow, as he's often done before, held firm while attacking the loose ball.

Bairstow fell agonizingly short of his second test century at Lord's, edging Pandya through to wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik for the only wicket of the final session.

But England, so often susceptible to collapses, kicked on as Bairstow and Woakes began to look comfortable on a pitch offering far less assistance to the bowlers than on day two.

Earlier, India made a decision to play with two spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, whereas Cheteshwar Pujara had a horrific return to Test cricket.

England won a tense series opener by 31 runs at Edgbaston.
