Match Update: England takes 42 runs lead on Day 1 for no loss

India had a tumultuous time on the field in Headingley as England showed complete control, putting up 120/0 after bowling India out for a measly 78 runs. England’s perennial swing threat James Anderson sniffed out 3 Indian batters in a space of 21 runs and only a brief resistance from Rahane and Rohit ensured that India reached to 78 as the team crumbled losing 4 wickets for a score of 0 runs at the bottom of the innings.

England looked imperious in the ground today as their openers seized the momentum after knocking off the 78 runs put on by India mid-way through the last season. Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns both got to half centuries with Haseeb Hameed being the top-scorer of the day with 60 runs. England will continue to press advantage on Day 2 after already being 42 runs ahead and with all their wickets intact.
