India have been dented early in the fifth Test against England at The Ova, after being put in to bat first. Off the fourth ball of the innings, Gautam Gambhir was dismissed by James Anderson for a duck. India are now three for one in the first over. Cheteshwar Pujara has come out to bat.

India got going with Murali Vijay driving James Anderson through cover for three. But then Gambhir was dismissed first ball. He tried to leave a ball that was going away from James Anderson and it took his bat as it went to the wicketkeeper. Thus, Gambhir’s troubles on this tour continue. This time he looked like leaving it, but it hit his pad on the way through.
