Day 1 of the 3rd Test at Headingley began on a good note. India won the toss and elected to bat, hoping to set an unassailable target for England to chase. But things soon went downhill from there. Within an hour of play, James Anderson had already snatched three wickets.
India's vulnerability against swing bowling was laid threadbare as they bundled up like a pack of cards – all out for a paltry 78! This is their 8th lowest in Test history – in the first innings. Be it the batting or the bowling front, it was a bad day for India as they could not snare any wickets from England.
On the contrary, things look bright for the host as their opening batsmen – Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns – took England's score to 120 with no loss at the stumps. England leading by 42 runs.
