England made a late break in the morning session as they pursued a series-leveling win over India in the third Test at Headingley.

Jonny Bairstow took a beautiful catch on the second slip of the last ball of the session to send KL Rahul back to the pavilion for 8 of Craig Overton’s bowling.

India went for lunch at 34-1, with Rohit Sharma unbeaten at 25 and the visitors trailing 320.

Host England had previously been sacked for 432, with Overton being a little late-resistant with a battling 32.

Despite all of England’s dominance, 432 is a figure that seems a little under par with Joe Root’s side at 350-3 on day two.

But the dismissal of Rahul before lunch means they are in charge and India No 3 Cheteshwar Pujara who has been in bad shape throughout the series will have to do it all together with Sharma in the second session of the day.
