A marathon 111-run last wicket partnership between Mohammed Shami (51 not out) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (58) helped India post a formidable total of 457 against England in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

India had won the toss and opted to bat on a wicket that was unlike a typical English wicket. It had dead grass and a flat deck to bat early on. After the loss of Shikhar Dhawan, Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara rallied India ahead. India posted 106 in the first session. Things slowed down a little from thereon thanks to some smart field placements from Alastair Cook backed up by accurate bowling from the pacers. India suffered a slight jolt when they lost Pujara and Virat Kohli in quick succession post lunch. But Ajinkya Rahane joined in to share a crucial fourth wicket stand.

After Rahane’s dismissal for 32, came the most important partnership of the innings. MS Dhoni and Murali Vijay added 126 for the fifth wicket. Vijay showed exceptional temperament to get to his maiden overseas Test ton and his fourth overall in Tests. India ended the first day on 259 for four. Dhoni had promised to play his natural attacking game in Tests too and he stuck to it. He helped India pick some quick runs towards the end of the first day.

On the second morning, England pacers looked a touch more threatening. Dhoni was dropped in the third over of the day by Matt Prior. Vijay and Dhoni continued cautiously and were all set to go undefeated at lunch. However, Anderson struck 30 minutes before lunch removing Vijay leg-before for 146.

India’s downfall started post lunch when Ravindra Jadeja departed for a quickfire 25 and Dhoni run-out for 82. From 342 for five they had slipped to 346 for nine. From thereon, Shami and Bhuvneshwar batted for well over two hours to post this total.
