22.2 got him, edged on to the front pad and Hameed plunges forward to take the catch! Rashid does a little hop-skip of excitement and India are three down, he looped this up on leg stump, Vijay came forwards but misjudged the line slightly, clipped the shoulder of the bat and popped up and hit him on the chest before falling in front of Hameed, who's having a ball on debut 68/3
    1.6 short ball, Gambhir fends at it... and edged to second slip! Breakthrough for England, a wicket for the deserving Woakes and Gambhir's uncomfortable six-ball stay is ended. Could have been left on line and length but Gambhir was repeatedly drawn into playing and this ended up as a dolly to the cordon 0/1
    16.4 given! Did that pitch in line? Pujara is walking off. Flat delivery on leg or just outside leg. Pujara goes deep in his crease and misses his push. It's pitched waaay outside leg. Pujara had the chance to review, but doesn't take it. Missed the legspinner and was struck right in front. Umpire Dharmasena raises the finger. 47/2
    not out
    23.4 bowled him, another one gone! Rahane goes back and plays an awful shot, looks to cut a ball turning back in from over the wicket, as the ball spins sharply into him, clips the pad and then rattles leg stump! Moeen's grin is as wide as the Ganges and India are wobbling here 71/4
    38.6 Ashwin is in disbelief. That's an awful shot. Lots of flight outside off, all Ashwin needed to do was get forward and defend. Instead, he goes at the ball with hard hands. The ball spins a touch and Ashwin's skewed drive lands in Root's hands at extra cover. Carried low to the fielder. Keeps the door ajar 118/5
    42.3 bump ball? England players seem rather confident. Soft signal is out. A very full delivery on leg, Saha gets forward and hits the pitch at the same time the ball makes contact with the lower end of the bat, but that has lobbed straight back. Saha will have to go here. A soft dismissal. India in a bit of trouble. 132/6
