Earlier in the day, England skipper Joe Root won the toss and opted to bat first. He scored 64 off 108 balls but lost wickets at the other end. Root added 72 runs with Jonny Bairstow who scored 29 off 71 balls.
Skipper Root surpassed Alastair Cook to become England’s highest run-scorer in international cricket in the process. Bumrah took four wickets, Mohammed Shami three, Shardul Thakur two and Mohammed Siraj one.
There were a lot of talks about India looking to bat first after winning the toss. Virat Kohli lost his 35th toss as captain as his bad luck with tosses continue.
This series also kickstarts the second cycle of World Test Championship from 2021-23. India lost their last Test series in 2018 in England. England then lost a Test series earlier this year 3-1. The pitch has been a good one for batting so far with the bowlers getting enough assistance as well. It has shown consistent seam and swing to add to the pace generating off the track.
Four England batsmen were dismissed on a duck in the first innings. Burns, Lawrence, Buttler and Robinson all bagged ducks in the first innings.
