At stumps, India were 24 for one with Rahul Dravid batting on seven and V.V.S. Laxman 13. The duo weathered the storm safely for 15 overs after James Anderson dismissed young opener Abhinav Mukund in the first ball of the innings with Kevin Pietersen taking a low catch at gully.
But it were the bowlers, who put India right on top after captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni opted to bowl. Ishant, Praveen and Sreesanth swung the ball from the right length to trouble the opening England batsmen. Opener Alastair Cook (2) and Jonathan Trott (4) were back in the pavilion quickly as England took lunch at 69 for two.In Image:
