The entrance might have been flashy for the pair but it wasn't a rosy start to the day for the visitors after Dinesh Karthik ended up being dismissed off the very first ball of the day after being caught at the third man on 82. His partner though had a better outing as Pandya scored a half-century before being out on 51. Karun Nair lasted 12 deliveries before being cleaned up on 4.
Rishabh Pant (34*) played aggressively as he added 41 runs with Ravindra Jadeja (15) before India were bowled out for 395 in 100.2 overs.
Five India batsmen got to their fifties. For Essex, Paul Walter starred with the ball, picking up 4/113 from 21 overs. Matt Coles chipped in with two wickets while Matthew Quinn, Aaron Beard, Matt Dixon and Aron Nijjar took a wicket each.
