Graeme Swann`s stunning debut, which saw him becoming only the second bowler in Test history to take two wickets in his first over, helped England seize control of the first Test against India on Friday`s second day.
The rookie offspinner trapped opener Gautam Gambhir (19) and Rahul Dravid (3) lbw with his third and sixth deliveries and India tottered to 155-6 at stumps on the second day in response to England`s first innings total of 316.
Swann`s first-over double strike has only been matched by English paceman Richard Johnson, who in 2003 claimed two wickets in his first over on debut against Zimbabwe.
