Ahmedabad: Nov 17, 2012

 

England openers foughtback well in the second innings putting up an unbeaten stand of 111 runs for the opening wicket against India on Day Three after getting bundled out for 191 in the first innings of the first Test at Ahmedabad on Saturday.

 

Pragyan Ojha picked up his fourth five-wicket haul in Test cricket against england on Saturday.

 

Earlier, Cheteshwar Pujara showed immense concentration and skill to notch up his maiden Test double century as India put themselves in the driver’s seat in the first Test by posting a mammoth first innings total and then compounded England‘s misery with three early jolts here on Friday.

 

The 24-year-old Pujara scored an unbeaten 206 and batted for close to nine hours before the hosts declared the first innings at 521 for eight shortly after the tea break on the second day and then reduced the visitors to a precarious 41 for three at stumps.

 

Virender Sehwag regained his touch with a sparkling century, and Cheteshwar Pujara is at 98 not out as India ended the opening day at 323 for four, off-spinner Graeme Swann claiming them all.

 

India seemed to be headed for a big total looking at the way Sehwag slammed 117 off as many balls and put on 134 with Gautam Gambhir (45) for the first wicket and Pujara went about stroking the ball in his unbeaten 98.

 

Swann (4/85) somewhat checked India’s onslaught with a good exhibition of spin bowling, even if Sehwag, Gambhir and Sachin Tendulkar got out to uncharacteristic strokes.

 

Sehwag started his innings in unusual fashion, batting cautiously, but once he got the measure of the pitch and the attack, strokes flowed freely. Gambhir, though not at his best, was good enough to stay till the 100 went up on the board.
