England won the toss and decided to field first. They managed to get Dhawan early but a resistance stopped wickets fall. Before Lunch, Vijay was sent back but Kohli attack ensured to India safe before Lunch break.

After Lunch, Anderson & Broad kept striking as India fell to 6 down for 131 at Tea interval, but India, at last, found a good partnership as duo of Ajinkya Rahane and Bhuvneshwar Kumar put on 90 runs for seventh wicket. Rahane also scored a brilliant 103.

Pujara, Kohli and Vijay scored 28, 25 and 24 respectively. Anderson picked up 4 wickets, Broad picked up 2 wickets and Plunkett, Ali and Stokes picked up a wicket each.

We bring you top tats of Day 1:

1) Rahane became the fifth number five batsman to record a hundred for India in Tests in England, joining Mohammad Azharuddin, Polly Umrigar, Vijay Manjrekar and Sourav Ganguly.
