Yashasvi Jaiswal slams yet another century in the series against England. In the 3rd Test match against England, Jaiswal scored 104 runs off 133 balls. However, he was retired hurt before the match ended due to a thigh injury. This was Jaiswal's second century in the series. Thus, it's safe to say that he's in prime form and is playing the series of his dreams. Jaiswal started the inning at a slow pace, but, once he settled in, he took the game under his control. 

Before he scored the half-century, he was playing comfortably. However, while nearing his half-century, the gradual shift in his batting was quite evident. Moreover, it just took him just 122 balls to score the century. Previously in the 2nd Test match in Vizag, he had scored a double century. As the pitch was favouring the batters, Jaiswal made full use of it. 

Jaiswal's batting brilliance was visible against Anderson in the 27th over where he hit two consecutive boundaries and a six. Moreover, he scored the fifty in a wonderful style by smashing spinner Tom Hartley for a massive six wide of long-on. Overall, it was quite a good day for Jaiswal at work. 

'We had only four bowlers' - Mohammed Siraj talked about team's strategy

Mohammed Siraj took four wickets at an economy of 3.97 in the 3rd Test match against England. In the absence of Ravichandran Ashwin, the young bowlers took the responsibility and fulfilled it successfully. The third day was more of India's day than England's as their batters were dismissed way before they could reach the score of 445 runs. Moreover, post the match, Siraj also mentioned the team discussion that happened before the day started and how they tackled the visitors. 

Siraj said, "We had only four bowlers and we had a responsibility. We knew they would attack so we spoke about sticking together knowing that they would make a mistake. We didn’t plan anything much, we were waiting for them to make a mistake. I knew the yorker would be a good wicket-taking option. The important role for a bowler is to bowl six dot balls, we know they’re not used to playing out six dots in a row."
