    As it happened: England vs India, 1st Test, Day 3

    (For ball-by-ball commentary, scroll down to the bottom of the page)

    Day-2 Round-up: Rearguard action from Indian tailenders Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami frustrated England on the second day of the Nottingham Test, at the end of which the visitors led the hosts by 414 runs.

    India slipped from a comfortable 344 for 5 to 346 for 9 when a collapse shortly after lunch gave England hopes of restricting India to under 350. But a 111-run partnership and maiden Test fifties by Kumar and Shami buried the English aspirations.

    Shami then came on to contribute with the ball as well and extended Alastair Cook's run of bad form when he bowled the England skipper around his legs for just 5. At stumps, Sam Robson (20*) and Gary Ballance (15*) were in the middle for the hosts who had reached 43 for 1.
