Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami Put India on Top

India took early control of the first Test in Nottingham as their pacers led by Jasprit Bumrah (4/46) and Mohammed Shami (3/28) skittled out England for 183 in the first innings on the first day of the first Test at the Trent Bridge. India’s opening pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul then took them to stumps unscathed, 21 for no loss.

All the pacers including Mohammad Siraj (1/48). And Shardul Thakur (2/41) made the ball talk throughout the England innings lasting 65.4 overs, vindicating the team management’s decision to go for a four-pronged pace attack while leaving out premier spinner R Ashwin from the playing XI.

England opted to bat first but their innings fell apart after the fall of Jonny Bairstow’s wicket just before tea as the Indian bowlers ran through the tail.

Shami picked the wicket of Jonny Bairstow (29) at the stroke of tea to revive India after the No. 5 batsmen and skipper Joe Root (64) had added 72 runs for the fourth wicket. England had gone into the tea break at 138/4.

Jos Buttler was removed by Bumrah for a duck. Before Shardul Thakur got the wickets of Root and pacer Ollie Robinson (0). Sam Curran, with a 37-ball unbeaten 27, took the team to 183.

Dominic Sibley (18) went after lunch caught at short midwicket off Shami before Bairstow and Root got together to resurrect the English innings.

Shami then had Bairstow leg-before the wicket to start England’s slide.

Bumrah bowled his heart out in his six-over spell beating the batsmen multiple times. Shami, who bowled seven overs first up, too troubled Zak Crawley (27 off 68) and Dom Sibley on a number of occasions. But as it often happens with him in England, the outside edge eluded him.
