England v India: Ian Bell & Jos Buttler help hosts take charge
Ian Bell returned to form with a first hundred in almost a year as England dominated the second day of the third Test against India in Southampton.
Bell made 167, sharing century stands with Gary Ballance and debutant Jos Buttler, who dazzled on the way to 85 from 83 balls.
When Buttler fell, England declared on 569-7, leaving India 14 overs to bat at the end of the day.
In that time, James Anderson removed Shikhar Dhawan to leave the tourists 25-1 and in severe danger of surrendering the 1-0 series lead they earned with victory in the second Test at Lord's.
