Chris Woakes denied he felt added pressure to perform heroics to safeguard his England place after upstaging Ben Stokes on the opening day of the third Test. DROPPED! Pujara drops an absolute sitter at first slip.

Earlier, India lost their final four wickets for 22 runs in 40 minutes as Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad bowled superbly to lay down the template for an astonishing afternoon. Pant secured 24 runs off 51 balls.

Ravichandran Ashwin fell for 14 when Broad, on his Nottinghamshire home ground, uprooted the middle stump as the batsman aimed legside. Once again it is the duo of Broad and Anderson who have made use of the bowling-friendly conditions and bundled out the remaining wickets in no time.
