Anderson leads rout, India 78 all out: 3rd Test, Day 1 (Leeds)

In a complete reversal from the disaster at Lords, England’s pace attack produced a stunning display to take complete control of the third Test against India.

After India won the toss, James Anderson set the tone with a masterful new-ball spell of 3-6 in eight overs. Ollie Robinson (2-16) then struck either side of lunch before Craig Overton (3-14) and Sam Curran (2-27) each took two wickets in two balls as India were bowled out for 78.

In reply, Haseeb Hameed (60no) and Rory Burns (52no) then shared an unbroken stand of 120 to finish off a fine allround day in the field for England.

England 120 for 0 (Hameed 60*, Burns 52*) lead India 78 (Rohit 19, Anderson 3-6, Overton 3-14) by 42 runs.
