Day 1 Highlights of India vs. England (IND vs. ENG) First Test

India were 21/0 at the end of Day 1 of the first Test at Trent Bridge, having bowled England out for 183. As the visitors trailed by 162 runs in their first innings, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul remained unbeaten on 9 runs each.

Earlier, England lost their final six wickets for 45 runs in the third and final session of the day after being bundled out for 183 in their first innings. They were 138/3 at one point but were stopped by the brilliant seam bowling of Jasprit Bumrah (4/46), Mohammed Shami (3/28), and Shardul Thakur (2/41).

Skipper Joe Root scored 64 off 108 balls for the hosts, while the rest of the team struggled to cope with the Indian pace bowling attack. England won the toss and chose to bat first against India in the first Test on Wednesday. The absence of spinner R Ashwin, who was benched to shore up the batting, is one notable change in the Indian playing XI. KL Rahul will bat alongside Rohit Sharma, while pacers Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj will replace Ashwin and Ishant Sharma from the previous Test.
