But England made a comeback in the second session as James Anderson got the wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and skipper Virat Kohli in consecutive deliveries. Ajinkya Rahane also lost his wicket, thanks to Jonny Bairstow’s direct. Rahul had a reprieve as Dom Sibley dropped him in the slips before bad light stopped play followed by rain interruption.
