Batting in reply to England’s 112, the Indians got off to a good start but lost wickets in a row. For a time, captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma formed a big partnership, but after the dismissal of Virat Kohli, the batting disaster occurred in Team India. India finished with 3 wickets for 90 runs on the first day.
