India vs England, 1st Test, Day 1 Live Cricket Score: Shardul Thakur, Bumrah Run Riot, England 9 Wickets Down
IND vs ENG Live Score: Shardul Thakur took two wickets in an over to leave England reeling.© AFP
England thought the session belonged to them, with captain Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow looking well settled at the crease, but Mohammed Shami’s strikes at either end of the second session — he dismissed Dom Sibley in his first over after Lunch and Bairstow in his last before Tea — ensured India will go into the break a happy team. Root however, looks solid, having brought up his half-century. He and Bairstow put up 72 for the fourth wicket before Shami trapped the latter LBW for 29. Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah struck early, trapping Rory Burns for a duck in the first over of the match. Sibley and Zak Crawley then rebuilt for England, with Crawley looking especially good, but Mohammed Siraj ended his stay at the crease. Root had earlier won the toss and elected to bat against India. KL Rahul has been drafted into the Indian side in place of the injured Shubman Gill, with Mayank Agarwal also suffering a concussion two days before the match. India have opted for the sole spinner in Ravindra Jadeja as Ravichandran Ashwin has been left out, while Ishant Sharma missed out due to a niggle. (LIVE SCORECARD)

India Need Wicket!
India in search of a wicket. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow are looking good after England lost their third wicket post lunch.

Thakur to Root, FOUR to the third man. India giving away easy runs to the hosts.
Jadeja to Root, 1 run. There was a chance of a RUN-OUT, miscommunication between the two batsmen. Bairstow was stranded in the middle of pitch but the throw was on the wrong end.
Jadeja to Root, FOUR, Good Shot!! opens up the face of the bat and nicely played to square of the wicket.
Jadeja Comes To Bowl!
Ravindra Jadeja comes into attack. A lot of pressure will be on him as the star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is not in the XI. England have 6 right-handers in their top 7 that might also be a reason for Jadeja playing ahead of Ashwin.
Thakur to Root, DROPPED by Rahul at gully. Good attempt by Rahul but that was not enough to dismiss the English captain.

Root Is The Key!
The way Indian bowlers have bowled today is a perfect example of getting all the boxes tick when it comes to maintaining line and length. England have a lot to do now as middle-order batsmen Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler are playing a Test match after almost six months.
Joe Root has to go big this time to keep the hopes alive for his team in this match.
Shami to Sibley, CAUGHT by KL Rahul at short mid-wicket. Sibley got out after a good start, third wicket falls for England.

Welcome back…. Indian pacers were on top in the first session. The hosts lost two wickets after winning the toss and the momentum was not on their side. English captain Joe Root is the biggest threat for the visitors and he is going well till now.
Indian bowlers will look to continue their form in this session as well.
Day 1: Lunch!
What a brilliant session this was for the Indian bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah got the first wicket in the first over of the match and later Mohammed Siraj was brilliant with his challenging line and length. Siraj dismissed Zak Crawley who was going well at a time. India will be a happier side after the first session and they will look to dominate in the later sessions as well to get their hand better in the match.
Siraj to Root, FOUR to deep square leg. English captain in action.
