India vs England: Woakes Makes Instant Impact as Stokes Substitute

India's Cheteshwar Pujara left and head coach Ravi Shastri talk during a nets session at Edgbaston a day ahead of the 1st test cricket match between England and India

In the first match at Edgbaston in Birmingham, he scored 149 runs in the first innings followed by a gutsy knock of 51 runs.

Woakes was 120 not out, having shared a partnership of 189 with Jonny Bairstow (93) that was an England record for the sixth wicket in Test matches against India, beating the 171 put on by Ian Botham and Bob Taylor at Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1980.

After the entire first day was lost to rain, further wet conditions forced a delayed start with England captain Joe Root eventually winning the toss and putting India in to bat on Friday.

MORNING SESSION - England 89-4 (India 107): It was a good morning for India as they took four England wickets to get them back into the second Test at Lord's.

James Anderson took five wickets in ideal swing bowling conditions after rain prevented play on Thursday (Friday NZ time) and more showers allowed only 8.3 overs before the first prolonged passage of play began shortly after 5pm local time.

Michy Batshuayi agrees loan exit leaving Blues short of options
The Belgium global , who impressed big time at Dortmund, will now hope to play a regular first-team football in Spain . Zouma joined Chelsea from Saint-étienne in January 2014 and made 71 appearances for the Blues first team.

With an exuberance tinged with a little awkwardness he punched the air with his bat, like a man playing an exceptionally wristy forehand in tennis, before raising both hands in the air and celebrating towards a dressing room whose delight in his achievement spoke volumes about his standing in this England side.

But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who struck first when, from around the wicket, he had Keaton Jennings, aiming across the line, lbw for 11. Five balls later Jennings " s fellow left-handed opener Alastair Cook (21) was out as well, caught behind off a superb Sharma delivery from around the wicket that squared him up and seamed away before finding the outside edge.

As expected England gave a Test debut to 20-year-old Surrey batsman Pope, who has competed in only 15 first-class matches but takes the place of the dropped Dawid Malan.

Pope made a promising 28 before he was lbw to Pandya. He was fortunate to enter the fray with the ball no longer swinging as it had throughout the match and India's bowling attack - undoubtedly rueing the decision to pick two spinners - either tiring or ineffective. But Kuldeep rarely troubled Bairstow, who cover-drove him for four to complete a 76-ball fifty featuring seven boundaries.

On the stroke of lunch, the impressive Shami picked up his second wicket with a ball that kept low and cannoned into Root's pads.
