  • Overs 1-50

Broad to Gambhir, OUT, clatter! Full, straight and swinging. Broad makes a mess of Gambhir's stumps with a superb delivery that swerved back in between bat and pad. He's got the reward for keeping the ball up to the bat, and isn't he happy. He even turns round to appeal!

G Gambhir b Broad 15 (87m 46b 1x4 0x6) SR: 32.60

India 63/1   A Mukund 41* (70b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 2.2-0-9-1

Broad to Mukund, OUT, Abhinav out for 48 in his previous Test, and out for 49 this time. The milestone was clearly playing on his mind, that can happen to you. Especially at Lord's. Broad keeps it full and wide of off, he should not have played at that. Abhinav reaches across with a gaping bat-pad gap and an angled face. The ball hits the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Abhinav is crushed with disappointment, as he should be.

A Mukund b Broad 49 (117m 88b 5x4 0x6) SR: 55.68

India 77/2   R Dravid 5* (20b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 5.4-2-15-2

Broad to Tendulkar, OUT, there's anguish at Lord's, even for the most ardent England fans, and they then begin to do their polite clapping routine. Sachin is out in the 30s again, at the home of cricket. Broad does it yet again with a fuller ball, one wonders why he even bothered with that bumper overdose. Lovely delivery, full and inviting outside off, swerving away slyly. Sachin walks into the trap, literally, driving away from the body and the edge flies low to the left of Swann crouching forward at second slip. Well taken. No 100th 100 yet. He made only 34, but boy, were they exquisite.

SR Tendulkar c Swann b Broad 34 (90m 58b 6x4 0x6) SR: 58.62

India 158/3   R Dravid 42* (78b 8x4)   SCJ Broad 8.4-2-25-3

Tremlett to Laxman, OUT, absolute bonus for England! Laxman has gifted his wicket. Nothing delivery from Tremlett but Laxman flicked it off his hip in the air, straight to deep backwards square. Strange dismissal but Strauss especially will be delighted

VVS Laxman c Trott b Tremlett 10 (46m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.77

India 182/4   R Dravid 53* (115b 10x4)   CT Tremlett 16.5-4-55-1

Swann to Raina, OUT, can't review that! Swann loves a left-hander! Raina gets deep into his crease and misses an attempted work-to-leg, it just slipped on to him quicker than expected and struck him in front. Replays show it clipping leg stump, India in real bother now

SK Raina lbw b Swann 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 183/5   R Dravid 54* (116b 10x4)   GP Swann 8.2-3-20-1

Tremlett to Dhoni, OUT, caught at slip! That's what the new ball was meant to do! Tremlett gets his length right again, finds the outside edge as Dhoni defended tentatively from the crease, Swann tumbled smartly to his left to pouch it safely

MS Dhoni c Swann b Tremlett 28 (102m 103b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.18

India 240/6   R Dravid 80* (179b 12x4)   CT Tremlett 20.4-5-60-2

Tremlett to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Harbhajan goes now! Poor shot really. Back of a length outside off stump, Harbhajan flirted at it with his feet rooted to the crease and only managed to feather an edge

Harbhajan Singh c †Prior b Tremlett 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 241/7   R Dravid 80* (179b 12x4)   CT Tremlett 20.5-5-61-3

Broad to Kumar, OUT, Broad ends the fun! Suspected he would. Sharp bouncer hurries on to Kumar who gets in no position to hook and top-edges high over his head where Strauss runs back to take the catch

P Kumar c Strauss b Broad 17 (26m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 130.76

India 276/8   R Dravid 94* (197b 14x4)   SCJ Broad 19-6-35-4

Anderson to Khan, OUT, bowled 'em! Anderson with one of his magic deliveries, pitching middle on a length, straightening and hitting off, Zaheer could have nothing about it, Anderson manages a smile

Z Khan b Anderson 0 (17m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 284/9   R Dravid 101* (208b 15x4)   JM Anderson 21.5-5-87-1

Anderson to Sharma, OUT, finally Anderson gets his man, in his way alright, away movement produces an outside edge that Prior gobbles up

I Sharma c †Prior b Anderson 0 (15m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 286/10   R Dravid 103* (220b 15x4)   JM Anderson 23.5-6-87-2
