James Anderson (81) and Joe Root (154 not out) shared a record 198-run 10th-wicket stand to help England pile on 496 in their first innings against India at Trent Bridge. England have taken 39-run lead.

England started the innings late on Day two after struggling to get the last pair of Indian batsmen thereby allowing India to go up to 457. Indian pacers started off well and Mohammed Shami struck first with the wicket of Alastair Cook. On the third morning though, England batted well with Sam Robson and Gary Ballance piling on runs. Robson was dropped by Virat Kohli off Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. England went in to lunch at 131 for one.

It was the second session which changed the complexion of the innings and possibly the match. England lost six wickets in the session with Ishant Sharma picking three, Shami one and Bhuvneshwar Kumar two. At 202 for seven India were dominating the match until Stuart Broad scored a quickfire 47.

But the match-changing effort was by Root and Anderson. England’s first landmark of the many achi9eved in this session came when Root reached his fourth Test ton. Anderson on the other end had surpassed his previous best of 34 and went on to register his maiden Test fifty. It was an irony that Anderson got to the mark with a pull shot off a short ball. But Root kept reminding Anderson that he was No 11 by picking a single even to shield him even after he was past his fifty. It was a matter of time before the pair went for the highest 10th-wicket stand. On the way they surpassed the highest last-wicket stand for England set way back in 1906.

Anderson was eventually dismissed for 81 by Bhuvneshwar who picked five wickets. Anderson’s score is the third highest by a No 11 batsman after Ashton Agar (98) and Tino Best (95).
