India vs England Test 1, Day 1: Bad Light Stops Play In First Test At Lord’s

By on July 21, 2011

England 127 for 2 (Trott 58*, Pietersen 22*, Zaheer 2-18) India…

Jonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen took England to 127/2 against India when bad light stopped play on the first day of the first Test at Lord’s on Thursday.

Trott and Pietersen steadied England with an unbeaten partnership of 65 runs for the third wicket.

Trott’s dream run at Lord’s continued as he hit his seventh half-century that came shortly after Zaheer Khan went off the field after pulling up his hamstring.

Zaheer was India’s wrecker-in-chief as he dismissed both the England openers.

Zaheer had England captain Andrew Strauss caught by Ishant Sharma at fine-leg for the second breakthrough after lunch.

Strauss and Trott took England to 43/1 at lunch.

Zaheer trapped Alastair Cook plumb in front of the wicket to give India the first breakthrough.

The breakthrough came after Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and chose to bowl in overcast conditions.

The first Test between number one team India and third ranked England is the 100th Test between the two sides and also the 2000th in the history of the game.


India: Mahenrdra Singh Dhoni (Capt.), Gautam Gambhir, Abhinav Mukund, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar.

England: Andrew Strauss (Capt.), Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior, Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Chris Tremlett.
