Zak Crawley fell in the next over, edging Jasprit Bumrah to Pant who dived to his right to take the catch." Archer underwent operation in May to remove a bone fragment from his elbow and was left out of England's two-test series in June against New Zealand, which they lost 1-0. Rahul, who was chosen to open the innings in the absence of injured openers Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal, hit 11 boundaries looking determined to capitalise on the opportunity. Root added 89 runs with opener Dom Sibley to prop up the innings. Sibley got an lbw decision overturned but departed on 28 when his angled bat met Bumrah's swinging ball and Pant dived to his left to smartly pouch the inside edge. "As part of his return-to-bowling programme, he became aware of increasing discomfort in his elbow during matches for Sussex in the Vitality Blast and a 50-over friendly against Oxfordshire," the ECB added. Jonny Bairstow made 30 before holing out to deep square leg off Siraj and Shardul Thakur trapped Dan Lawrence lbw for 25 but Root kept going with his risk-free accumulation of runs. The first match of the five-test series between the teams marks the beginning of a new World Test Championship cycle. He will now spend time on an extended break from cricket before returning for a medical review in early autumn.
