It was a pretty even first session at Vishakapatnam after India🇮🇳 recovered from losing their two openers early to go into lunch🍴 at 92/2.
KL Rahul, India's 'No.1 opener' replaced Gautam Gambhir and Jayant Yadav💫 was handed his Test debut in place of Amit Mishra. England made one chance, bringing in James Anderson⚡ for the unlucky Chris Woakes.
Change in openers didn't mean a change of fortunes😟 for India as Rahul departed for a duck🐣 in the 2nd over. Murali Vijay started uncharacteristically with a flurry of boundaries but was caught off guard by a lifter from Anderson and Stokes took his 2nd catch of the day at gully.
Kohli⭐ & Pujara's running between the wickets looked circumspect at the beginning but the two have looked largely comfortable in the middle.
