The game between England and India have been stopped due to rain as England lose an early wicket after Jasprit Bumrah strikes his first wicket of the day.
Mohammed Shami had started his run-up and umpire Aleem Dar signalled a “late” call to stop the play after the officials sent a message for the rain showers coming up.
The late signal by umpire Dar, despite the batsman being ready and Shami close to deliver his ball made Virat Kohli angry and he stated “Aise kaise kar sakta hai”

Edgbaston has witnessed Jasprit Bumrah smashing some of the classically shots as Rishabh Pant’s blood has flown towards the tail-enders.
Jasprit Bumrah becomes a Test player to score the “Most Runs in an Over” and creates a world record as Brian Lara topped the same list with 28 runs before.
India struggled mightily against the top order on Day 1 and eventually fell to 90 for five. However, Rishabh Pant’s innings of 146 runs off of 111 balls on Day 1 at Stumps enabled them to score 338 for seven. While taking five wickets, James Anderson also gave up the most expensive over ever in a Test match. Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Stuart Broad, and Matthew Potts each claimed a dismissal at this time. The visitors, who are up 2-1 in the best-of-five series, will want to capitalise on their momentum and win it.
