It may have been just the opening day of the all-crucial pink ball Test, but the match is pacing really quickly. England's decision to bat first backfired as the visitors were bowled out for just 112 in the 1st innings. Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin ran through them with 6 and 4 wickets respectively. Indian openers had a watchful start before Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara fell within a span of 1 run as the hosts were reduced to 34/2. Rohit Sharma carried on and scored a swift half century and is unbeaten on 57. He though lost Virat Kohli towards the end of the day as he fell for 27. Though India ended day 1 at 99/3, they trail England by just 13 runs.
