India's only success came in the 53rd over when trying to sweep Prgayan Ojha, Compton, who scored his maiden test fifty, was adjudged leg before. There was also some excitement after umpire Rod Tucker initially shook his head in the negative before raising his finger. Cook and Compton stitched together a first wicket partnership of 165 in 53 overs.
Trott then joined Cook in the middle and the duo took England past 200.
Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept juggling his bowlers but the English batsmen defended firmly and punished the loose balls. All the Indian bowlers including Ojha looked mediocre and failed to trouble or contain the visitors.
