After India were bundled out for 145 with England skipper Joe Root returning with 5/8, it was Patel’s turn to use the skids and let the pitch do the work. The 27-year-old kept bowling at the same place as English batsmen left bamboozled.

In the very first ball of England’s second innings, Patel rocked opener Zak Crawley’s stumps. It could have been a hat-trick in the second ball but a DRS decision went against him. However, the third delivery of the over to Jonny Bairstow did the job as the English batsman completely misjudged the line of the ball and was clean bowled.

In the ninth over, it was Dom Sibley’s turn as he nicked a Patel delivery to wicketkeeper Rishav Pant. But with Root getting trapped leg before, Patel completed his 10-wicket haul for the first time in Test cricket. His career-best in first-class cricket was 10/125.
