He is indebted to captain Joe Root for adding 64 and 72 with Johnny Bairstow.


However, Bairstow's depart to the massacre, which added to the confusion with Sam Curran's cavalier 27.


India’s all-round pace attack is awesome, bowling full length to use assists on offer, especially when the floodlights are on.


Jaspreet Bumra claimed 4-46 for the tourists and Mohammad Shami 3-28, which could also eliminate skilled off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.


India, along with openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, went 21-0.


The forecast for the remaining four days is mixed but India have already taken decisive steps towards a 1-0 lead in the five-Test series.


England beat India 4-1 here three years ago, but before the start of the tournament, there is a growing feeling that tourists in the country can achieve their first victory in 14 years.


Virat Kohli's men won a popular series in Australia this winter and it seems to have all the means to succeed in the UK.


England, on the other hand, have an inexperienced, inconsistent batting line-up and are missing Ben Stokes, who has taken a break from the game to prioritize his mental health. Without the all-rounder, the hosts are struggling to balance their attack and have once again knocked out spinner Jack Leach.


India announces his arrival in style


Like England, India did very little in the run-up to the series. They played a warm-up game and trained with each other since the final defeat of the World Test Championship against New Zealand in June.


However, if their excellent batting line-up adapts to English conditions, as proven in Nottingham, their skilled bowlers are likely to embarrass the hosts.


With the ball in full swing‌, India were relentless at full length, with England finally providing a consistent test that failed.



There are also surreal moments. In the same over Crowley came out of the review for a catch behind Mohammad Siraj, the enthusiastic captain Kohli picked another one and proved right the second time.


Later, James Anderson LBW Bumra, a yorker only to remove his stumps on the next ball.


After that Rohit and Rahul's straightforward technique kept England batting relevant.
