Kolkata: Dec 6,2012

India were all out for 316 in the first innings against England on the second day of the third cricket Test at the Eden Gardens here Thursday.

Resuming on 273 for seven, India lost three wickets for 43 runs in the first hour to wrap up the innings. Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 52. Sachin Tendulkar was top scorer with 76 while opening batsman Gautam Gambhir made 60.

England’s left arm spinner Monty Panesar bagged four for 90 while pacer James Anderson finished with three for 89.

Earlier, on Day One, Sachin Tendulkar marked his return to form with a patient 76 but England claimed the honours on the opening day.

Tendulkar played a composed innings under pressure facing 155 balls and hitting 13 boundaries in the process. His partnership of 79 for the fifth wicket with Yuvraj Singh was the highlight of the Indian innings as most of the other top order batsman failed to capitalise on starts.

He missed a century when he was forced to edge one off seamer Jimmy Anderson and the catch was taken by wicketkeeper Matt Prior diving to his right.

Anderson got the ball to reverse consistently in the post tea session which saw England get three wickets after getting two each in the first couple of sessions on a Eden Gardens track which appeared good for batting.

It was Tendulkar’s first half-century since the Sydney Test as he appeared relieved after getting to the mark with a boundary of pacer Steven Finn.

Electing to bat on flat wicket that had little to offer, India had a promising start from Gautam Gambhir (60) and Virender Sehwag (23).

But Gambhir could not convert his fine start for yet another time, while Virat Kohli’s poor form in the series continued as he could manage only six runs.

Anderson (3/68) rocked the home team at the fag end of the day with the second new ball. He bowled a perfect off-cutter that breached Ravichandran Ashwin‘s defence.

At stumps, skipper Dhoni was unbeaten on 22 (from 59 balls) along with Zaheer Khan who was yet to open his account. This is the first time that floodlights were used in a Test match at the Eden with the last 40 minutes being played under artificial lights.
