However, their ineptness in the field cost them the third day at Trent Bridge.Robinson took 5-85, James Anderson 4-54, and Robinson played in his second Test, after offensive historical tweets were discovered. Robinson was dismissed for 278.England lost two catches and missed four run-out chances.One was very expensive. Ravindra Jadeja ought to have run out on four and then made a valuable 56.He scored 60 runs for the sixth wicket, sharing it with KL Rahul. Joe Root dropped him on 78 and he was then run out for 84.India's three last wickets added 73. Number 10 Jasprit Bhumarah swinging his way up to 28, to increase their lead to 95England was facing a serious deficit in batting. However, Rory Burns, Dom Sibley and others were able to move to 25-0. Unfortunately, rain arrived at 17:15 BST. Farcically, play was stopped for the day one hour later, despite the fact that the ground was flooded with sunshine.On Saturday, more bad weather is expected. This could ruin a contest that could still provide an interesting conclusion.England regrets what could have beenIt was a great day, played in front a lively crowd. England could have done even more if they were sharper on the field.As Sibley had dropped Rahul on Thursday with 52 points, Dan Lawrence's inability to stop Jadeja could be decisive for the outcome.Jadeja was just short of his ground so Lawrence's throw should have been to Jos Buttler the wicketkeeper. Instead, he tried to hit the stumps directly and missed.England was unable to score with three more stumps runs - Bumrah could've been out before he scored. Anderson is also guilty of being off-target.He was eventually reprieved and was able cause chaos by taking Sam Curran for 14 in just three deliveries. India also wag his tail for valuable rewards.England's apprentice and masterAnderson, the masterful pace bowler who has been at the opposite end in his international career, started England's revival on day two. Robinson continued it on Friday.Robinson was expelled after racist and sexist comments were made about him in Twitter on June 1st, but his performance on the field at Lord's in Test cricket suggested that he could succeed in this sport.Trent Bridge confirmed his suspicions as he made his way through India's lower-order, nagging lengthening and displaying seam movement.Anderson was involved in an earlier exchange with Rahul, when the batsman wanted the field to be left during a shower. He then had the frustration to see Root drop him before producing a fantastic delivery that was feathered behind. This was his 620th Test wicket which took him past Anil Kumble to the third place on the all time list.Anderson was beaten by Shardul Thakur, who then beat Robinson to the first slip Root. Jadeja skied to the mid-off, Mohammed Shami got bowled by one that nipped back, and Bumrah was finally well held by Stuart Broad at fine legs.Anderson and Robinson combined returned nine wickets, compensating for Broad's struggles. Robinson received the applause and it was clear that Robinson may be an important part in England's attack for some time.Rahul and Jadeja prove their worthIndia was indebted towards Rahul and Jadeja who could in any other circumstance have been left out.After Shubman Gill's injury and Mayank Agarwal's injuries, Opener Rahul will be playing. Jadeja was preferred over fellow spinner Ravichandranashwin.Rahul's knock oozed class. Instead of scoring runs on the leg side, he found the cover boundary with sweet drives.Jadeja, a left-handed player, wristily whipped Anderson's ball off his pads and flicked Anderson over square leg six times.India could have used Bumrah’s late appearance to give them momentum, but Burns and Sibley were able to put on some steel. Sibley was cheered after he hit the mark with the 17th ball.England was saved by the rain, which was strange considering the bright sun shining brightly.They said that only India could win from here.Jonathan Agnew, BBC Test Match Special: "It really was India's day, they got a crucial lead 95 runs with some big shot near the end. KL Rahul scored a big score of 84 but was dropped twice and England fielding was poor.Michael Vaughan, former captain of England: "The rain has definitely helped England but surely only India is able to get a win here. A draw would be a delight for England if they can take anything.
