First Test: India 21/0 at stumps on day 1, trail England by 162 runs

Nottingham/IBNS: Indian openers scored 21 runs without losing their wickets at stumps on day one of the first Test against England, trailing the hosts by 162 runs, here Wednesday.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are both not out at nine runs.

Earlier on the first day, the English batting unit crumbled facing the Indian pace battery.

England could score just 183, an extremely poor total in Test cricket.

Joe Root was the top scorer for England with his 64-run knock.

While India’s premier pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah picked four wickets for 46, Mohammed Shami clinched three for 28.

Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj shared the remaining English wickets.
