Chris Woakes rocks India back after a good start

India made three changes as Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah replaced Murli Vijay, Dinesh Karthik, and Kuldeep Yadav respectively.

The Indian openers, Dhawan (35 runs) and KL Rahul (23 runs) started the morning session in a positive manner building a 50-plus stand. But, soon Chris Woakes changed the script picking up for the openers in quick succession. Cheteshwar Pujara (14 runs) was the next man to walk out as Woakes picked up his wicket at the stroke of lunch. India ended the first session at 82 for 3.

Captain and Vice-captain save the day

The post-lunch session belonged to India completely as the skipper Kohli and his deputy Rahane steadied the ship and kept the scoreboard moving.

By tea time, India was in a comfortable position as they didn't lose another wicket and ended the second session at 189 for 3.

Both Rahane (81 runs) and Kohli (97 runs) continued their dominance over England until Rahane's wicket ended a 159 runs partnership. Kohli got out soon after that, but Hardik Pandya (18 runs) and debutant Pant (22 runs not out) seem to be building a partnership until Pandya edged the last ball of the day to slips and departed as well.

On this note, India ended the first day's play at 307-6.

For England, Woakes bowled a fine opening spell taking three wickets while Stuart Broad, James Anderson, and Adil Rashid got one wicket each.

Going into day two, England will try to keep India's total as low as possible, while it will crucial for India to at least score 350 or 400 runs in the first innings, having got a good start to the test.
