England were 92-3 in their second innings with a lead of 65 runs, at lunch on the third day of the fourth Test against India at Southampton on Saturday.

India's fast bowler Mohammed Shami took Keaton Jennings' wicket to break the partnership between England's skipper Joe Root and opener Jennings.

Keaton Jennings was trapped LBW by Shami for 36 off what became the last ball of the session.

 Root was not out on 30 at lunch.


England started Saturday's play on six without loss Alastair Cook (12) and Keaton Jennings (36) but lost their wickets to Jasprit Bumrah and Shami respectively.

Moeen Ali was surprisingly promoted to number three instead of Root, lost his wicket to Ishant Sharma.

A combination of Ishant's excellent bowling and a superb grounded catch by KL Rahul resulted in Ali's wicket.

On the second day, Moeen Ali took five for 63 as India were dismissed for 273 in reply to England's first-innings 246, a lead of 27 runs.

England lead this five-match series 2-1.
