As it happened: England vs India, 1st Test, Day 2

(For ball-by-ball commentary, scroll down to the bottom of the page)

Day-1 Round-up: The Nottingham weather didn't threaten one bit and allowed an intriguing day of Test cricket in bright English sunshine on Wednesday, with India taking the opening day honours in the first Test - thanks to unbeaten 122 runs from Murali Vijay who took India to a healthy 259 for 4 at stumps in Trent Bridge.

Vijay's fourth Test hundred was the cornerstone of the Indian effort that saw the centurion sharing crucial half-century stands with Cheteshwar Pujara (38), Ajinkya Rahane (32) and skipper MS Dhoni (50*), who didn't think twice before deciding to bat on a brownish, dry-looking track.
