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.
