India vs England, 1st Test

Complete coverage | Scorecard | Match report

India began their chase -- 368 runs to win -- on a horrendous note as opener Virender Sehwag was comprehensively beaten and bowled through the gate while trying an expansive drive off first innings bowling hero and man-of- the-match Matthew Hoggard.

But ther other opener, Wasim Jaffer, and captain Rahul Dravid staged a strong fightback.

The match was finely balanced when play was called off due to bad light, India needing 108 runs from 11.4 overs and England another four wickets.

India were 260 for six at the end.
