Ahmedabad: Nov 15, 2012

 

India reached a score of 120 runs without losing a wicket at Lunch in the first Test against England  as Virender Sehwag scored a blistering half-century. The dashing opener was unbeaten on 79 runs and Gambhir on 37 as England bowlers failed to get a singlebreakthrough.

 

Both openers Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir scored crisply as earlier, Indian captain MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. Sehwag was in punishing mood as he scored 15 runs in one of Tim Bresnan’s over after reaching his fifty.

 

India included all-rounder Yuvraj Singh in the team while Steve Finn was not included due to an injury. Nick Compton makes debut.

 

The hosts had suffered a humiliating 0-4 series whitewash when they had visited England in July-August last year and would like to avenge the defeat on the back of its spinners in favourable home conditions, said a PTI report.

 

England have not won a Test series in India in nearly 28 years and reversing the trend would a tough job for the world number two team.

 

They have been handicapped by the leg-injury to their 6-foot 7-inch fast bowler Steven Finn, who could trouble the Indian batsmen with his steep bounce even on the slow pitches.

 

Brief Scores: India 120 for no loss (Virender Sehwag 79*, Gautam Gambhir 37*) vs England
