Stumps, Day 1: If India were asked, if they would take 307/6 after losing the toss, they would have said yes. But after the stand between Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, they would be disappointed perhaps at losing an extra wicket. Nonetheless, a great day for India after the crushing loss at Lord's. The highlight of this session though would be the way Rishabh Pant got off the mark. With a six. Dhawan and Rahul laid the foundation. Rahane and Kohli cashed in. Hardik saw off the crucial phase by consuming deliveries while Pant kept the scoreboard ticking. A much better performance from Indian batsmen expect Pujara, who must be kicking himself after being dismissed at the stroke of Lunch. India, though, would want a total near 400 on this pitch... a lot depends on how Pant and R Ashwin will fare...
