India v England, 1st Test: Day One in pictures

R. Ashwin picked up India's first wicket of the Test series, castling Alastair Cook with a peach of a delivery in his second over, the ball pitching on or just outside leg before spitting past his outside edge to hit the top of off-stump. Photo: GETTY IMAGES

Root had trudged his way to a rather unruffled 80 before a moment of brilliance from his Indian counterpart Virat Kohli saw him take the loing walk back to the dressing room. Bairstow nudged Ashwin into the on-side and turned for a second run. Kohli sprinted after the ball and hurled it in from the outfield to find Root short at the bowler's end by a couple of yards.

Jonny Bairstow continued to blunt the Indian attack with a well-paced 70 off 88 deliveries. The wicketkeeper-batsman hammered nine boundaries, in the process racking up his 18th half-century. Photo: GETTY IMAGES

Ashwin ran amok with the ball, finishing with four for 60 from 25 overs as England slipped to 285/9 from 216/4. The tall off-spinner from Tamil Nadu, whose place in the Test playing XI was under doubt until recently, had just wrested the day's honours in India's hands. Photo: GETTY IMAGES
