Michael Vaughan believes that England will regret not taking their opportunities during the India vs England match

Former captain Michael Vaughan believes that England will regret the missed opportunities on the first day of the third Test in India.

The Indian captain scored a century in Rajkot when Joe Root missed a chance to dismiss Rohit Sharma on 27.

England had the opportunity to dismiss both Rohit and Ravindra Jadeja, who remained unbeaten on 110, but they chose not to review the lbw appeals.

Vaughan said England would be pleased with their efforts, but they would also be thinking that they could have bowled India out

England had reduced India to 33 for 3 and it could have been as high as 47 for 4 had Root not missed an edge from Rohit off Tom Hartley.

With Rohit on 87, he was struck on the arm while attempting a sweep off leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed. Captain Ben Stokes decided not to review, but replays showed that the ball would have hit the stumps. However, there was a question over whether Rohit hit the ball.

Jadeja could have been in trouble on 93 when he had his bat and pad together in defense of Hartley.

Former England captain Vaughan, who led the team in 51 of his 82 Tests, acknowledged that England missed several opportunities during the match. He commented on the Test Match Special podcast that India is currently in a dominant position.

However, England chose not to refer to the decision. England's review system has been problematic throughout the series. In the first Test in Hyderabad, which the tourists won by 28 runs, England used up all three of their reviews in the first 14 overs of India's first innings.

Some teams have a structured system for reviewing on the field, requiring the bowler, captain, and wicketkeeper to agree. However, England does not have such a structure.

England has some very experienced cricketers out on the field. It can be frustrating at times. But the team has to keep going and try to create more opportunities.
