Eng vs Ind - 1st Test, Trent Bridge, day 2

Anderson leaves India wobbling on rain-hit day

India 125 for 4 (Rahul 57*) trail England 183 (Root 64, Bumrah 4-46, Shami 3-28) by 58 runs

Nottingham: India reached 125 for four in their first innings at tea on the second day of the first Test against England here on Thursday.

KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant were batting on 57 and 7 respectively at the break.

For England, James Anderson took two wickets, while Ollie Robinson picked one.

The tourists dominated the second day's morning session with the opening stand inching towards the century mark when Ollie Robinson bounced out Rohit for 36, earning a breakthrough for the hosts.

India reach 97-1 at the break with KL Rahul on 48 and looking determined to impress after injury setbacks to Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal handed him an opportunity to open the innings alongside Rohit.

Resuming on 21 for no loss, both the openers looked largely comfortable against the seaming ball at Trent Bridge.

Rohit hit six boundaries and could not resist the temptation when Robinson banged it short and the opener's wild swing sent the ball flying to Sam Curran at backward short leg.

The first match of the five-test series between the teams marks the beginning of a new World Test Championship cycle.

England have opted for a seam-only attack, while India have all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja as their lone spin option.
