After rain washed out the opening day without a ball being bowled, England skipper Joe Root today won the toss and elected to field against India. England then reduced India to 11 for two in 6.3 overs before heavens opened up to halt the proceedings.
At the break, Cheteshwar Pujara, who replaced Shikhar Dhawan in the playing XI, was at one and giving him company was skipper Virat Kohli (1). England won the first Test by 31 runs.
India 1st innings: 11 for 2 in 6.3 overs (KL Rahul 8; J Anderson 6/2).
