Edgbaston weather forecast tomorrow: With the Test match evenly poised, the only hurdle now before achieving a result at Edgbaston is rain.
After team India posted a massive 416 runs on the score board in the first innings, England were bundled up for 284 to hand India a significant lead of 132 in their second innings on Day 3, of the ongoing rescheduled ‘fifth’ Test match at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, in Birmingham.
Wicket-keeper batter Jonny Bairstow (106), continuing with his purple patch of form in Test Cricket, smashed his third consecutive Test century, which remained the only notable contribution in the entire batting order.

While skipper Jasprit Bumrah got rid of the top-3 English batters, Mohammed Siraj bagged a four-wicket haul, including the prized wicket of the in-form Joe Root (31). Mohammed Shami, picked up a couple of wickets, including that of the ever dangerous Jonny Bairstow, to put the final nail in the England batting coffin.
With the match now evenly poised with India heading towards a massive lead, it remains to be seen whether or not England go for the chase regardless the number of runs, as they did in all the three Tests against New Zealand a few days ago.
