If the opening Test match of the series was close - the 31-run margin of victory suggests the second Test was a humiliation for Team India.

England, who ended at 357-6 at Stumps on Day Three, have a huge lead of 250 runs which can prove to be sufficient to bowl out the Indian team in the second innings, considering the batting form the visitors are in.

Woakes made a pretty decent stab of replacing him here with his maiden Test century and two second innings wickets to add to his two from the first that earned him the man of the match award ahead of Anderson.

And a thumping victory by an innings and 159 runs that leaves England two up with three to play was achieved while their talisman in Ben Stokes was preparing to continue his attempt to clear his name at Bristol Crown Court.

"I am not very proud of the way we played to be honest".

Sunday followed the same pattern of English domination as Friday and Saturday with Root, who appears to have visibly grown as a captain in the last two games, understandably deciding to extend England's first innings.

This, in the form of the sublime bowling of the master craftsman in Jimmy Anderson and an all-round performance of considerable substance from Stokes replacement in Chris Woakes, was the ideal antidote to Bristol.

Speaking after the match, visiting skipper Virat Kohli admitted saying, "We deserved to lose".

While the news of Elba taking the role has not been confirmed, a report by CNN refutes the comments made by Fuqua . Idris Elba as Bond I gotta see though!" others had their reservations, especially when it came to the actor's age.

Resuming on 357-6, England surprisingly chose to bat on despite extending their lead past 150 on day three when Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow shared a partnership of 189.

England, however, have the cushion of 250 runs and even if the entire day washes out, Joe Root can even declare at the overnight score and give his bowler a great chance of getting 10 wickets of the low-on-confidence Indian batting side on Monday.

When Jos Buttler went for 24 - Shami's third leg-before wicket - England looked capable of crumbling again.

James Anderson, England " s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, took full advantage of the swing-friendly conditions with a return of five for 20.

Anderson was now just 12 shy of the 563 Test wickets taken by Glenn McGrath. Ajinkya Rahane, who is India's Test vice-captain, took the role of the captain with Kohli missing the action due to a stiff back. He was given out caught behind when the ball brushed his glove and Karthik was then lbw to the next ball.

"Even when the ball is doing a bit you have to pitch it in the right areas and the guys were relentless with the ball, " Kohli said. "I was feeling in really good rhythm".

"I was gutted when that rain arrived, " Broad said.
