Shardul Thakur blew out his heart in the first two sessions and was eventually rewarded for his perseverance when he overthrew the dangerous English captain, Joe Root.
It all happened in the first ball of the 59th over when Shardul got one to hit Joe Root back angrily.
Root was late in the spot and the ball hit his pads right in front of the wicket.
It was so dead that the referee raised his finger in a flash and that Root did not even want to challenge the call.
Root’s wicket comes at the worst possible time for England, who have already lost their last three wickets in a space of 17 runs.
It only got worse for the home side when Shardul Thakur backed it up with another scalp in the same chest as he fired Ollie Robinson for a duck.
Robinson, in an attempt to pull Shardul, finally trained Mohammed Shami in the middle of the training session when England dropped to 8/159.
Since then, Jasprit has stumbled upon Bumrah Stuart Broad to leave England nine, but Sam Curran is fighting it in the middle as England aim to get past the 200-run mark.
Watch: Shardul Thakur turns Joe Root and Ollie Robinson into one
