No Ashwin No Problem! Kuldeep rips through England in morning session

The pitch, expected to assist spinners more on Day 3, started playing its tricks. Yadav's success highlights the potential threat it poses to the remaining English batsmen and adds a layer of excitement to the ongoing session.

India vs England 3rd Test, Day 3 (IND vs ENG): Kuldeep Yadav stepped up in the absence of Ravichandran Ashwin, taking center stage and ripping through the England batting line-up in the morning session of the Day 3 of the 3rd Test in Rajkot. His crucial wickets of Ben Duckett and Jonny Bairstow put India back in the game after England looked comfortable overnight.

Ben Duckett departs after majestic century:

Ben Duckett, who had dominated Day 2 with a brilliant 153 runs, fell victim to a short and wide delivery from Kuldeep Yadav.

Despite attempting a cut, the ball took a surprising turn, lobbing to cover for a much-needed breakthrough for India.

Jonny Bairstow falls after brief stay

Before Duckett’s dismissal, Bairstow joy was also short-lived. Yadav’s sharp-turning delivery deceived him, trapping him LBW for a duck. This double strike by Kuldeep Yadav put England in a spot of bother, halting their momentum and bringing India back into the contest.

Can India Capitalize?

Bumrah took the other wicket in the opening session. And with three key wickets in the first session, India has a golden opportunity to build on Yadav’s momentum and restrict England’s lead further. All eyes will be on the bowlers, particularly Kuldeep Yadav, to see if they can capitalize on this crucial start and put pressure on the English lower order.
