After Root hit his first ball, Jasprit Bumrah was bowled for a golden duck by Rehan Ahmed, who then dismissed Axar Patel to leave India needing only 436 runs in 121 overs.

Of their five-match series, this is the first Test. India has defeated England twice in the past 12 years and has not lost a home Test series. It’s interesting to note that Alastair Cook’s England team from 2012–13 was the last team to defeat India at home.
