England win by 31 runs

England skipper Joe Root won the toss and opted to bat against India in the opener of the five-Test rubber at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground here on Wednesday. India have surprisingly left Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara out of the playing XI with Lokesh Rahul taking his No.3 place, and picked four quick bowlers with Ravichandran Ashwin as the lone specialist spinner.
England on the other hand, already announced their playing XI on Tuesday with leg-spinner Adil Rashid making his comeback to the longer format after a two-year gap.
Teams: England: Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Joe Root (Captain), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.
India: Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma.

55.2 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Gobbled up at first slip, England have done it. Stokes is the hero, he loves the big occasion and drinks in the moment with his teammates. What an amazing Test match it has been. nnnnWow. We have witnessed one of the great Test matches over the last few days in Birmingham. With more see-sawing back and forth than a childrens playground, it has been impossible to predict and completely engrossing. The match situation was on a knife-edge this morning, but Jimmy Anderson swung the pendulum in Englands favour with a wicket in the opening over. A double-wicket maiden from Ben Stokes, including the wicket of the sensational Virat Kohli, whipped the Edgbaston crowd into a frenzy and from there it was always going to be tough for the tourists. Adil Rashid snared Ishant Sharma with a googly before the enigmatic Durham allrounder sealed the victory with his fourth wicket of the innings. Commiserations to India, this will be a very difficult defeat to take but they have played their part in a fantastic contest. They will need to regroup and come back hard at Lords in the Second Test, which starts on Thursday. Lets hope we have more of the same gripping action there and in the rest of the series.

50.6 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Adil Rashid to Ishant Sharma. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Massive appeal, England are pleading with the umpire to give this but Gaffaney is unmoved. Rashid tells his skipper straight away to review it, he is very confident. Ishant didnt pick the googly, just like in the first innings, but he did get a big stride forward. Theres no inside edge, and ball tracking has it crashing into the sticks so England celebrate once more. Just one wicket needed for victory now, all of Indias hopes rest on Pandya.

47.6 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Mohammed Shami. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Got him, Ben Stokes charges away in celebration as the noise levels in Birmingham go off the scale. What a moment to produce a double-wicket maiden, evoking memories of Flintoff and Harmison at this same ground in 2005. This delivery was far too good for Shami who just poked at it more out of hope than expectation, and Bairstow does the rest with his fifth catch of the innings. An inspired over, one for the history books.

47.3 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Cannons into the pad, vociferous appeal and the finger is raised - Edgbaston erupts, Stokes has got the vital wicket. Kohli is left with no choice but to review, but that looked absolutely stone dead. Stokes hoops this one back into the Indian skipper who misses playing around his front pad, and the ball wouldve smashed into the leg stump. Unbelievable drama, Kohli walks off to rapturous applause, hes had an amazing Test match but cant see India over the line. Over to the bowlers with the bat.

37.6 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Dinesh Karthik. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to second slip, by Malan. Taken at second slip, Anderson has done the trick for England and the crowd roars in delight. Hes probed away this over, asking Karthik questions outside the off stump.

A wonderful days Test cricket we had yesterday and the game is nicely in the balance as we begin day three. India had a star in the middle all day and he showed his class and got his team onto a level playing field, after England were looking in the ascendancy. A late wicket last night of Alastair Cook ignited this match nicely and today should be a cracker with both teams trying to get the upper-hand.
4.4 OUT! Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Alastair Cook. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to. Bowled! Just like the first innings! An absolute beauty again from Ashwin, this pitched on leg and hit the top of off! Not quite sure how Cook is supposed to play Ashwin if he keeps bowling deliveries like that. India do get a wicket before the end of the day. In fact the umpires decide that is that for day two. Wow, another fabulous day of test match cricket. England missed the chance to dismiss Virat Kohli early and they were punished. A combination of determination and talent seeing him to an excellent century. Batting with the tail he manipulated the game single-handedly and put on valuable runs for India with Sharma and Yadav doing their bit in support. That wicket of Cook means Joe Root will join Jennings tomorrow and England need an innings of substance from their own captain to set a challenging total for India. Dont miss tomorrow folks, thats all for now.

A surprise as Kohli is finally dismissed. Rocking back to cut hard he didnt quite get on top of it and Broad takes the catch. That final stand was worth 57, of which Umesh Yadav scored one. A real body blow for England who would have hoped for a decent first innings lead. Now their openers have to come out for a tricky 20 minute period at the the end of the day when they will no doubt be tired. India could grab the initiative here with a couple of wickets.

57.6 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep point for 1 run, run save by Stokes, fielded by Buttler. Stokes gets a good hand on the ball and Kohli decides one is enough rather than pushing for three.

55.6 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Ishant Sharma. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump moves in front defending, inside edge to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Given! But Ishant Sharma reviews straight away, he seems to be gesturing that hes hit it. Otherwise he looks to be in front of all three.

A bit of a nothing shot, an airy drive at a ball wide of off stump and this time Malan gratefully hangs on!

52.1 Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid on for 2 runs, shy attempt by Anderson. Shami is almost run out at the non-strikers end!

51.5 APPEAL! James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. One of those which is half a shout for a catch and half a shout for LBW. Nipped back past Kohlis inside edge so no chance of a catch and both outside the line and too high for LBW, good decision.
51.4 James Anderson to Mohammed Shami. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Root.
51.3 OUT! Bowled. James Anderson to Ravichandran Ashwin. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Bowled him! Finally Anderson has a much deserved wicket.

51.1 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to leg gully for 1 run, appeal made for L.B.W. Big shout from Anderson as Kohli is a long way across his stumps. Given not out and because its Kohli England are going to go for the review. Its hitting in line, but looks a bit legside. Missing the stumps completely which not only means Kohli survives but also that England have no more reviews remaining.

49.6 FOUR! James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. More runs to third man as Kohli gets a thick outside edge. Played with soft hands so the ball was always running along the ground but its in the gap and another four to Kohli. He must have scored a lot of runs down there.
49.5 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

48.6 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 2 runs, fielded by Root. And thats tea. Another exciting session, I have to say so far this has been a gripping test match, constantly ebbing and flowing in favour of either side. Curran has bowled excellently as has Stokes, but for now Kohli remains at the crease for India.
48.5 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. Very full and steered away by Ashwin along the floor. Yet more runs to third man.

47.4 Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip for 1 run, dropped catch by Malan. Another drop and its Malan again at second slip! This was a much harder chance than the earlier one. England have a gap between second and fourth slip and this would have gone straight to third. Malan had to dive to his right and try and take it one-handed.
47.3 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. Kohli however is still there, and that will be 50 in England for the first time for the Indian captain. He shouldnt really be there, that dropped catch from Malan should have been taken but Kohli has battled on.
47.2 Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
47.1 Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Broad.

46.6 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Sam Curran to Hardik Pandya. In-swinging yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to. What a delivery! A fierce inswinging yorker from Curran! Pandya is in front of all three, Aleem Dar thinks for a moment about whether it hit the bat first, decides it hasnt and raises his finger. Pandya reviews straight away, he obviously felt it hit his bat. Here comes the slow mo, it is boot first and Pandya is plumb! Good decision by Aleem Dar.

44.6 Sam Curran to Hardik Pandya. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid. Almost a mix up as Pandya wants two but Kohli isnt interested. The throw from Rashid came in to the wrong end otherwise Pandya might have been stranded.

43.5 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. Similar to a shot Kohli played earlier, a leg glance as Broad drifted onto his pads. The intensity from England has just dropped slightly as this pair are just starting to find batting a little easier. England will be rueing earlier missed chances.
43.4 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs.

42.6 FOUR! Sam Curran to Hardik Pandya. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Wristwork from Pandya. That boundary came out of nowhere really, Pandya deciding he wanted to feel bat on ball and score himself some runs. It beats Broad at mid-on, it was in the air for a while though.

39.6 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. Loose delivery from Broad, too straight and Kohli helps it on its way. Thats what happens if you bat for long enough, the bad balls will come.

39.4 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
39.3 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, past deep cover for 4 runs. Kohli gets one away. Wasnt exactly a half volley but Kohli creamed it through the covers. England wont be too disheartened to see him playing at balls that wide of off stump.

37.1 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket for no runs. A lunging forward defensive and the ball pops up into the legside off an inside edge. Maybe England could put a man in there to make Kohli more wary when he defends.

34.3 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. And again, more deliberate this time from Pandya. A cry of frustration from Stokes.
34.2 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Again its four to third man. Probably more of an edge than deliberate but it finds the gap and runs along the floor to the boundary.
34.1 Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

32.1 Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip for 1 run, dropped catch by Cook. Another drop! Two in two balls! Its Alastair Cook this time at first slip. Oh dear England. Another life for Pandya. Hits the seam and leaves the batsman, taking the edge and it was straight at Cook, he really should have held that. Perhaps it wobbled just slightly as it got to him but England have got to take these chances.

31.6 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip for no runs, dropped catch by Malan.

30.6 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. England think they have another! Its the inswinger from Ben Stokes, hooping back in late at Pandya and thumping into his front pad. Big appeal and finally Aleem Dar does raise the finger for England! Pandya goes for the review, they have two left and as the last recognised batsmen they might as well. Its missing! Its doing too much! It looked fine until in slow motion you see how much it swung and the angle it was delivered from. Pandya survives.
30.5 Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs.
30.4 Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to backward point for no runs.

30.2 OUT! Bowled. Ben Stokes to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Gone! Stokes strikes again! Karthik opened up the gate and through Stokes went! This ball held its line and Karthik got it all wrong, going hard at the ball playing down completely the wrong line. The ball went past his inside edge and crashed into middle stump, knocking it clean out of the ground.
30.1 Ben Stokes to Dinesh Karthik. Short, outside off stump swayed away, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

28.4 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Ajinkya Rahane. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third slip, by Jennings. Gone! Stokes has troubled Rahane and he has his man. He has looked uncertain at times as to whether to play or not. Here it looked like he thought hed play a similar shot to the ball before, however this delivery was much shorter. In the end Rahane played a bit of a nothing shot steering it to third slip. Stokes releases the ball from really quite wide on the crease and that put the doubt in Rahanes mind.
28.3 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. Well played by Rahane. He was trying to do this the previous ball but gets it through this time. Running the ball off the face behind square on the offside to the prolific third man region.

26.5 Ben Stokes to Ajinkya Rahane. Short, outside off stump on the back foot, past fine leg for 4 runs. Short ball which in the end Rahane tries to evade lifting his hands out of the way. The ball actually hits his armguard in the end and loops beyond Bairstow.

24.6 APPEAL! Ben Stokes to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Stokes surprises Rahane with the inswinger! Rahane overbalances and falls over slightly and the ball hits him on the frint pad. Big appeal but yet again Aleem Dar says no. Bairstow is keen to review as he so often is so Root asks Stokes for a final verdict. Stokes says dont bother. Here comes the replay, its three reds! Disaster for England as they miss the opportunity to get Rahane. That comes from the earlier poor decision to review the Vijay dismissal which lost England one of their reviews.

22.1 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. Not for the first time this match the ball runs away to the vacant third man boundary. Kohli rode the bounce and guided it between the slips and gully.

21.6 Adil Rashid to Ajinkya Rahane. Googly length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Stokes. Well another thoroughly intriguing session in this test match comes to an end. Vijay and Dhawan had built a good platform for India after they bowled England out in just the second over of the day. Enter Sam Curran, the young left-arm seamer took three wickets in two overs to restore the balance of power in this test match. We even had a taste of Anderson to Kohli, the Indian captain leaving the ball well and survivng one slight scare. Where will this game take us next?

20.4 FOUR! Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs. Deliberately played, Kohli opens the face and just lets the ball run off the face. He places it well, wide of the slip corden and gets four with no third man in place.

17.1 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Buttler, fielded by Cook, fielded by Jennings. Close!!! Nearly 2014 all over again. The away swinger from Anderson takes a thick ish outside edge towards Buttler at gully. Buttler gets a finger end, it wasnt really a chance, and the ball runs towards third man. It looks like Buttler has hurt himself actually and he goes off for treatment.

Oh and it could have been a third for Curran. All of a sudden the ball is really starting to swing for England. Lovely line draws Dhawan into playing, the ball takes the outside edge but there is no fourth slip! It would have gone straight to him. Instead the ball goes past the outstretched hand of Jennings at third slip and runs away for four.

14.6 OUT! Bowled. Sam Curran to Lokesh Rahul. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. Two in an over for Curran! Rahul goes for a loose drive second ball and drags it back onto his stumps! A hint of shape but it was a very aggressive shot to be playing so early on before the feet are moving in time with everything else. We had a few chop ons yesterday and it has been a recurring method of dismissal on this pitch.
14.5 FOUR! Sam Curran to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs.
14.4 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Sam Curran to Murali Vijay. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to. England have their breakthrough! A hint of swing for Curran, he has shaped it back into the right-hander at times and he traps Vijay in front. Initially Aleem Dar was completely uninterested but thankfully England decided to use their one remaining review. Its pitched in line and carried on straight. The bat was close but Vijays front pad actually got in the way and stopped him from hitting the ball. Its crashing into middle and leg, three reds and Vijay is gone!

Big shout from England! Shape back into the right-hander and the ball crashes into Vijays front pad.

2.1 Stuart Broad to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to gully for 1 run, shy attempt by Stokes. A chance for England! Dhawan hits it into his pad and calls for a run. Stokes is swooping in from point though and Vijay is struggling! Stokes picks up left-handed and underarms at the stumps from close range whilst diving forward. He only has one stump to aim at though and misses narrowly, Vijay would have been short of his ground. He goes to have words with his partner.

And thats that as far as Englands innings is concerned. No real resistance this morning, just the ten balls it took for India to take the last wicket that they needed.

88.6 Good morning and welcome back to Edgbaston where for England there is much work to be done. Yesterday they dug themselves into a hole and whilst it will be Curran and Anderson to resume batting this morning, one would imagine it wont be long before we are watching India batting. England will no doubt be alarmed how much influence Ashwin had on day one of the series, however much of their downfall was of their own making. The really interesting battles today will between Anderson and Broad and the Indian top order. Can England fight back with ball in hand or will India build a commanding lead in this game?
88.5 Mohammed Shami to Sam Curran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip for no runs, dropped catch by Karthik.

75.1 OUT! Caught & Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Ben Stokes. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, fielded by Ashwin. Mistake from Stokes. A real long hop in all honesty from Ashwin and Stokes has managed to spoon the ball straight back to the bowler. He looks disgusted with himself. England have got themselves into all sorts of trouble after being in a real position of strength earlier on this afternoon.

74.6 Mohammed Shami to Sam Curran. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to first slip for no runs, fielded by Dhawan. Well bowled, genuine outside edge doesnt quite carry to slip. Curran survives for now.

70.5 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Another boundary through square leg for Stokes. Shami is getting some shape in to the left-hander but on the angle Stokes can simply help the ball on its way to the legside boundary.

68.1 FOUR! Umesh Yadav to Ben Stokes. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Flicked away into the legside, good wrists from Stokes and thats his first boundary. It will be interesting to see how he plays this situation.

67.4 OUT! L.B.W. Ravichandran Ashwin to Jos Buttler. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. And now Buttler goes too and India are all of a sudden in the driving seat. A straight off break from Ashwin and Buttler tries to turn it into the legside. Hes played around a straight one and quite rightly doesnt bother with a review.
67.3 Ravichandran Ashwin to Jos Buttler. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.
67.2 Ravichandran Ashwin to Ben Stokes. Off break half volley, down leg side on the back foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.

Over 66. 2 runs. Bowler: Umesh Yadav. England: 5-223(rr 3.38)
66.6 OUT! Bowled. Umesh Yadav to Jonny Bairstow. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge to. Bairstow goes too! Another big wicket for India! This comes out of nowhere really, a pretty inocuous delivery from Umesh, maybe comes back a touch but Bairstow manages to chop the ball back onto his leg stump. Probably not the last dismissal of that kind we will see this match.
66.5 Umesh Yadav to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to silly point for 1 run, fielded by Kohli.
66.4 Umesh Yadav to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Karthik. Poor shot from Stokes.

63.3 OUT! Run Out. Ravichandran Ashwin to Jonny Bairstow. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Kohli. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. A suicidal piece of running gives it away for England. Bairstow turns it into the legside and is off like a shot, he is so quick. These two have been putting the pressure on the Indian fielders. Bairstow wanted two but Root didnt decline even though he was clearly struggling. Good work from Kohli who picked up and threw off balance. Ashwin had time to collect the ball but in the end he didnt need to as the ball hit the stumps directly with Root short of his ground. No replays required.
63.2 FOUR! Ravichandran Ashwin to Jonny Bairstow. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Not quite where Bairstow intended but that will earn him another boundary. Ashwin going round the wicket and angling it across Bairstow.
63.1 Ravichandran Ashwin to Jonny Bairstow. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Vijay.

62.3 FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, past deep cover for 4 runs. And four more, through the covers this time. Minimal footwork but excellent hands to get this through and with enough on it to beat the fielder to the boundary.
62.2 FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Lovely way to go to 50, an on drive that beats mid-on and runs away all along the floor into the rope. Good stuff from Bairstow.
62.1 Hardik Pandya to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Shami.

61.5 APPEAL! Mohammed Shami to Joe Root. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to second slip for no runs, fielded by Dhawan, appeal made for L.B.W. Close! Gun barrel straight from Shami and smacks into Roots pads. Hes saved by an inside edge! Aleem Dar heard it but for a moment Shami thought he had his man.
61.4 Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to point for 1 run, fielded by Rahul.
61.3 Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shami.

59.5 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. A touch of width and guided away by Bairstow. Not too far away from one of the catchers but played very deliberately.
59.4 Mohammed Shami to Joe Root. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot Steer, to point for 1 run, fielded by Ashwin.
59.3 Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Sharma. Good run from Bairstow, getting a single for nothing off a good ball. This pair bat well together, they have a good understanding.

58.5 Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover for no runs, fielded by Kohli. Bairstow goes at a wide swinging delivery, he has to reach for it and the ball comes off the toe towards Kohli t cover. He dives forward but the ball doesnt quite carry.

57.6 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Textbook cover drive. Shami pitched the ball up looking for some swing away from the right-hander. There was no real movement however and Bairstow latched onto it, creaming the ball through the covers for four.

56.6 FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Joe Root. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, past fine leg for 4 runs. Short and Root almost has to wait for this before swivelling on the spot and putting this away behind square. He gets it fine away from the fielder, two boundaries in as many balls.
56.5 FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Joe Root. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Not for the first time today Root is able pick off a half volley into the legside and earn himself four runs.

55.1 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Lovely start from Shami but unfortunately for him its resulted in four runs. Soft hands though from Bairstow and the ball did run down and all along the ground so it wouldnt have been a catch even if it had gone to a fielder.
Over 54. 1 run. Bowler: Hardik Pandya. England: 3-163(rr 3.02)
54.6 Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to gully for 1 run, fielded by Rahane. That will be tea. A couple of early strikes for India in that session but the two Yorkshiremen in the middle have steadied the ship for England on Yorkshire Day. Still the game is evenly poised and these two set batsmen need to make the most of it by scoring big runs. Shami and Ashwin have looked good for India but the others could do more to make life difficult for England.

Shami from round the wicket angles it in and Malan plays outside the line, the ball thumping into his pads. Up goes the finger! Malan looks at Root hoping for some encouragement and does decide to review. Looks like height is the only thing that might save him, its clipping the bails and India have their third wicket.

Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track pushing, hit pad to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Yadav, appeal made for L.B.W. Straight away Malan uses his feet but the ball hits him on the toe pretty much on the full as it drifts back in. Ashwin appeals strongly but given not out by Aleem Dar. India decide to review but probably regret it. Its umpires call due to the impact being over 3m from the stumps as well as impact outside off.

36.1 OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Keaton Jennings. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, mis-timed to. Finally we do have a chop on. Albeit in rather unfortunate circumstances for Jennings. The ball bounced down between his legs towards his feet, heading initially towards fine leg although not with any speed. The ball hit both legs on the way down and spun out of the dirt back towards off stump. It hit the base and dislodged a single bail, unlucky for Jennings but India will feel they deserved that.

9.5 OUT! Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Alastair Cook. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Gone! An asbsolute beauty from Ashwin. The classical dismissal of a left-hander from an off spinner bowling round the wicket. Perfect seam position, drifting in and pitching on middle, drawing Cook forward and turning past the outside edge to hit the top of off stump. It didnt look like there had been much turn so far but that delivery turned significantly.

6.3 Ishant Sharma to Keaton Jennings. Out-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to fourth slip for no runs, fielded by Rahane. Jennings gets lucky! Nicely bowled from Ishant, straight enough that he has to play but shaping away from him. Takes the outside edge and on the angle goes quite wide towards the slip corden. Rahane is at fourth slip and dives low to his right in front of Kohli. He gets two hands to it but cant hold on. Some discussions follow between Rahane and the captain as to whos catch it should have been.

One thing that is for certain is that both teams come into this match with uncertainties about their side. For England the top order is becoming an all too familiar problem, neither Jennings nor Malan have cemented their places in the top six and the failures of others opened the door for a return to the test side for Jos Buttler. The England selectors have also made the bold left field choice of another recall, that of Adil Rashid with uncertainty over who currently holds the mantle of being the best English spinner.nnFor India, there is some uncertainty as to who will bat at number three for them. The choice is the old head of Pujara who has played a lot of cricket in England or younger blood in the form of KL Rahul. For Virat Kohli, test match runs in England are one of the few achievements he has so far failed to tick off in a glittering career. So were all set for a fascinating day of test match cricket, the first ball isnt too far away.
