India bowled out England for 183 in the first innings of the first Test being played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. After losing the toss and being asked to bowl first, Indian pacers made good use of the conditions to dismiss the hosts for under 200.
Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers and ended with figures of four for 46. Mohammed Shami picked three wickets for 28. Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj also made it to the wickets column picking two and one wicket respectively.
Having reached tea at 138 for four, England lost their remaining six wickets for just 45 runs in the day's third and final session.
Skipper Joe Root made 64 off 108 balls, even as the others failed miserably to stand up to the Indian pace bowling attack.
In the first session, Indian pacers beat the batsmen regularly but Root and Bairstow played with grit and patience to thwart their attempts.
Shami was finally able to break their threatening stand by having Bairstow leg before at the stroke of tea. Shami got one to jag back in and India reviewed the umpire's decision successfully.
India decided to go in with four pacers, and brought in Thakur and Siraj into the side. Only one spinner was picked in the playing XI, Ravindra Jadeja, who bowled just three overs in the innings.
Dropping premier spinner R Ashwin was a big call as he had been well prepared for the series opener with his preparation including a county game.
India finished the day at 21 for no loss with KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma opening the innings for India. Both Rahul and Sharma were unbeaten at 9 runs at close of play of day 1.
