Ishant started the proceedings for India in the third Test. The pacer dismissed Dom Sibley in his second over as the batsman departed without troubling the scorers after nicking the ball to

Rohit Sharma

at second slip. After the first wicket, the spinners took over the mantle from Ishant.

Ravichandran Ashwin

and

Axar Patel

spun a web over visitors to bundle out them for 112 in the first innings.
Axar, playing in just his second Test, scalped six wickets while Ashwin returned with three wickets as the visitors were bowled out in just 48.4 overs. This was Axar's second five-wicket haul in a row as he had scalped five in the second innings of the second Test as well.
