India were off to a steady start before they lost Shikhar Dhawan for 12 in the first Test against England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Wednesday. Murali Vijay picked three consecutive fours in the first over of the day which set the momentum of the innings.

On a bright sunny day, with not much grass on the pitch, batting first always seemed the best options for captains winnings the toss. For the first time since 2008, India went in to an overseas Test with five bowlers. The fifth bowler here is Stuart Binny being the 281st Test debutant for India. However, the first focus was on how the openers start.

James Anderson began the proceedings and the second ball took the inside edge of Vijay and went for a boundary. Vijay took some chances and guided two boundaries past thridman in the fifth over off Anderson.

Anderson struck in the seventh over when he shaped the ball away from the left-hander and Dhawan went for a tentative push only to be caught behind by Matt Prior. This is Anderson’s 50th wicket at Trent Bridge and is the bowler to achieve such a feat.
