India reach 124/2 in second innings at stumps on Day 3

England captain Joe Root right speaks with coach Trevor Bayliss as Ben Stokes walks to the nets at training during the

Alternatives usually come from county cricket but as the Championship fired up for its latest round all three England selectors - Ed Smith, James Taylor and Trevor Bayliss - were at Trent Bridge.

The beauty of playing cricket in England is taking advantage of its fickle weather, and even for an Indian pace attack that has prided itself in consistently taking 20 wickets overseas, it was a Super Sunday in the third Test against England at Trent Bridge.

All the progress England seemingly made in winning their last three Tests has counted for nothing here where India's bowlers have shown them the right lengths to bowl when there is help both in the air and off the pitch. Ishant, who ought to have been given the new ball, squared Alastair Cook up, having the left-hander edge behind.

Sharma then had Ollie Pope (10) caught down the leg side before Hardik took over, starting when he removed Root (16) with his first delivery of the innings, albeit in controversial circumstances. England were bundled out in 38.2 overs after India had posted 329 in the first innings. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan both played with freedom and scored runs around the park - some streaky, some agricultural and some flawless - to put England immediately on the back foot.

Priyanka Chopra Shares Intimate Photos From Her and Nick Jonas's Engagement Ceremony
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and Chopra's sister-in-law congratulated the Baywatch star and welcomed her into the family. First I'm blessed with an incredible future brother-in-law, and now such a attractive , inside and out, future sister-in-law.

Hardik Pandya of India celebrates taking his five-wicket haul.

A soft underbelly, a lack of spine, a glass jaw: take your pick, because while there is talent in this team - as will doubtless be mentioned during the post-mortem of this match - there are problems in the batting that, during the three successive wins this summer, have been rather masked by lower-order fightbacks and bowling excellence. Pant, however, failed to make it big and was out for 24 off 51 balls.

BOWLED! Broad strikes again with a classic delivery.

Pandya wasn't done just yet.

Pentagon puts off military parade until 2019
A Pentagon memo from March said the parade route would have a "heavy air component at the end of the parade". The last military parade held in the nation's capital ran in 1991 , after the end of the Gulf War.

Meanwhile, England started the second day on a grand fashion finishing India's innings within few overs. For England, the series could be all over, in the positive way, pretty soon.

The second is Bairstow, whose five centuries to date have all come in the first innings of a Test, and is far more talented than an average of 39. It does not take hindsight to have predicted that and Root, Trevor Bayliss, and all at European Central Bank are culpable in making a bad call.

On the other hand, the England team are looking in great form with every member contributing in the victory. Thus, James Anderson will start the second innings on a hattrick.

He had added only four more runs when he edged Anderson to second slip Jos Buttler for 18, giving England late cheer on a day that otherwise belonged to India.

White House says it values diversity, won’t disclose numbers
President Donald Trump apparently has a nickname for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos - and it's not flattering. Kushner and Ivanka tape, the source said, would show that they offered emotional support.

And their plight was summed up by an terrible drop by Cook off Chris Woakes that reprieved Shikhar Dhawan before he was undone by an Adil Rashid googly.
