Stokes has hit eight boundaries off the 129 deliveries he has faced so far.

Bairstow also played a crucial role as the visitors went about their attempt to salvage the innings after losing quick wickets on Friday.

The right-hander scored 53 runs off 152 balls with five hits to the fence before fast bowler Umesh Yadav uprooted his middle stump shortly before lunch.
