The 20-year-old Sam Curran is playing in only his second Test match and announced himself with some impressive bowling to wipe away India top-order.

Vijay scored scored 20 before being adjudged lbw in the 14th over. KL Rahul was the next to depart after beginning his knock with a streaky boundary. He prodded at a delivery that was well outside off and dragged it back onto the stumps to depart for a 2-ball four. Dhawan became Curran’s third victime after being caught by Dawid Malan in the slip for 26.
