India Vs England: India 24/1 At Stumps On Day 1, Trail By 181 Runs

India ended the first day of the fourth Test match on a high note despite losing opener Shubman Gill in the second over of the game.

At stumps, India’s score read 24/1 with Rohit (8*) and Pujara (15*) at the crease — trailing the visitors by 181 runs in the first innings.

After a disappointing show with the bat, England got off to a flying start with the ball as James Anderson struck with the third ball of the innings. The pace spearhead trapped Gill (0) in front of the stumps as India lost a wicket with no run on the board.

A total of 11 wickets fell on the day as England bundled out for 205 runs after skipper Joe Root won the toss and decided to bat first.

Axar once again hogged the limelight with his four-wicket haul while Ravichandran Ashwin scalped three wickets.

While it was Mohammed Siraj who picked the all-important wicket of Root in the first session, Ashwin broke the deadlock in the third session as he dismissed Ollie Pope.
Pope’s wicket sparked a collapse from which England couldn’t really recover. The visitors went down from 166/5 to 205 all out within 14.3 overs, losing half of their side for 39 runs.

Root was reduced to 5 runs, whereas all-rounder Stokes went on to score 55 runs. He got support from Dan Lawrence, who contributed 46 runs to the team’s total.
