England pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad started off well but Matt Prior let off skipper MS Dhoni when the batsman edged it to the keeper. India are 270 for four. Murali Vijay is batting on 131 and Dhoni is on 52.
Anderson and Broad pitched at the right areas testing the batsmen. The first boundary of the day came through Vijay who guided one towards thirdman. It has been his favourite scoring area this innings. Dhoni though was tested by Broad as the batsman couldn’t stop himself from leaving the good length deliveries. Dhoni went for a drive and Prior failed to collect the thick edge diving to his right. On a batsman-friendly wicket, this could prove a costly miss.
India began the second morning on 259 for four with Vijay leading the team with his fourth Test ton and first in overseas conditions. There was not much in the wicket on Day one but this time around, there is a bit of movement on offer.
