India's return to Test cricket after over a six-year gap produced a compelling draw against England in Bristol. The visitors, asked to follow on, avoided defeat in a match where debutants played starring roles.
India, who were bowled out for 231 after England declared their first innings on 396 for 9, made 344 for 8 in their second innings before play was called off on day four.
Shafali Verma, making her debut at the age of 17, became the youngest to make two 50+ scores in a women's Test.
Another debutant, Sneh Rana, came up with a match-saving 80* after taking a four-for in her 39.2 overs in England's innings. She added an unbeaten century stand with fellow debutant Taniya Bhatia, who scored 44*.
