A classy innings from Rahane, while Bhuvi playing another useful knock on a green turf where top-order batsmen failed.

After a poor second session, India resumed from Tea break with a dismissal of Binny. Later a fine partnership between Rahane and Bhuvneshwar Kumar who fought desperately, took India past a par score. From 145 for 7, their partnership of 90 in 24 overs took them near to 250 before a ball which kept low beaten Bhuvi who scored 36. Later Rahane continued his classical shots and brought up his second test century. Soon after the century he got out after giving a return catch to Anderson. Later some sparking boundaries from Shami and Ishant help India to end on 290 for 9 with an unbeaten 15 run stand. Shami unbeaten on 14 and Ishant on 12.

Earlier, 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.

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.

Scorecard:

India: 290 for 9 (A Rahane 103, B Kumar 36; JM Anderson 4/54, SCJ Broad 2/70) vs England
