Curran so nearly has Hardik...somehow edges past the stumps. Ball doing plenty still...

Another catch dropped by Buttler off Woakes and almost unbelievably the next ball gives him another chance and he catches it.

Buttler - without gloves - is totally butterfingered ...and dead lucky ! Once again , Woakes induces successive edges and again it's drop one , catch one , for Jos :)

Did they pick him because he's a lucky beggar ?

Broad and Anderson got all the new ball. Arguably Woakes and Curran might have had a bit of a bite. Buttler takes another catch after he drops another chance!

I wouldn't worry about that , Arthur ...ball is doing plenty still.


As Curran shows with a peach for the sixth wicket ! That went a mile...

Anderson back...and immediately removes Rahane . Cook safe this time. Seven gone and India in heaps of trouble...84/7

Jimmy gets Kuldeep lbw...96/8

India have Ashwin to thank for getting up around 100. He will keep on swinging the bat ...

But he's gone now...lbw to Broad. 96/9.

Yes - exactly the conditions India least like on an English ground. Root couldn't have wished for better.
