Shami strikes to send back Burns

Day 1: England nice James Anderson ripped by means of the highest order as India collapsed to 78 all out within the third Test at Headingley on Wednesday earlier than openers Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed capped a near-perfect first day for Joe Root’s males with an unbroken stand of 120.

Anderson took 3-6 in eight overs – a haul that included the prize dismissal of India captain Virat Kohli, who received the toss.

Already essentially the most profitable quick bowler in Test historical past, Anderson now has 629 wickets at this degree.

He was effectively supported by Sam Curran and Craig Overton, who each took two wickets in two balls.

Overton completed with 3-14 in 10.4 overs after being recalled rather than injured quick bowler Mark Wood.

Nevertheless, there remained the fear for England, beset by top-order woes throughout a run of seven Tests with out a win, of the same collapse.

But Burns and Hameed – England’s twenty second Test-opening pair since Andrew Strauss retired 9 years in the past – noticed them to a first-innings lead of 42 at stumps.
