England pace attack led by James Anderson put up a fabulous bowling display on the first day of the Headingley Test after India chose to bat first.
England pace attack demolished the Indian batting line-up on the first day of the third Test at Headingley Leeds as they bowled out the visitors for just 78 runs. Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat first, however, the smiles were limited to toss only as far as the Indian camp was concerned as it was all England once the match started.
England captain Joe Root suggested that the wicket was a little tacky and was going to get better in the coming days for batting, so he wasn’t really disappointed with the result of the toss and it seemed like the England team read the pitch a little better, or maybe England pacer bowled exceptional lines or Indian batter failed to apply themselves or a little bit of everything.
The wickets started falling in the first over and it just didn’t stop and every over felt reminiscent of Adelaide 2020 and it kept getting tougher for the ones in the middle and the ones watching. The hero of the first two games, KL Rahul was the first one to go as the 39-year old youngster James Anderson got the ball to shape away from the bat a little after setting him up with incoming deliveries.
