Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant took his easy catch. New batsman Daniel Lawrence was dismissed by Bumrah LBW. Indian captain Virat Kohli handed the ball to Ashwin in the eighth over itself. The openers Sibley and Burns played well in the first hour. Ishant and Bumrah, playing the first Test in India, played sensibly and did not let India get early success early.
