And at lunch the England paceman had figures of two wickets for eight runs in five overs after KL Rahul, India's other opener, was lbw for 10.

Cheteshwar Pujara was five not out and Ajinkya Rahane one not out, with India captain Virat Kohli unable to bat in his regular number four position because of a stiff back.

Chris Woakes was 137 not out, the Warwickshire all-rounder having completed his maiden Test century on Saturday.
